    Phase One, Mamiya and Profoto Announce First Vertical Grip With Built-in Flash Techno

    Phase One, Mamiya and Profoto Announce First Vertical Grip With Built-in Flash Technology

    The Phase One/Mamiya V-Grip Air for Phase One & Mamiya 645DF Cameras was co-developed with Profoto



    COPENHAGEN, TOKYO, and STOCKHOLM, August 23, 2010 -- Phase One and Mamiya, leaders in open platform medium format digital camera systems and solutions, and Profoto, the light shaping company, today announced the Phase One/Mamiya V-Grip Air. This is the first product resulting from these companies’ collaboration.

    The Phase One/Mamiya V-Grip Air is not only the first vertical grip with a built-in wireless flash trigger; it is also the first and only wireless flash sync solution for a medium format camera system that is capable of delivering sync speeds as fast as 1/1600s. The new V-Grip also offers owners of Phase One and Mamiya 645DF cameras more shooting styles, and delivers longer camera battery life through power integration and easy firmware upgrades.

    “Profoto’s innovative flash system technology is legendary in our time,” said Henrik Håkonsson, President and CEO, Phase One. “Profoto’s commitment to system diversity complements Phase One’s open platform approach to ensure photographers have options to choose the best systems to support their unique requirements.”

    “Profoto is recognized globally as producing the most innovative flash equipment in the industry” says president of Mamiya Digital Imaging, Toshio Midorikawa. “By combining resources with Profoto, Mamiya and Team Phase One, we are able to offer photographers the most practical tools for their profession.”

    Built-in flash technology from Profoto lets photographers trigger a flash simply and wirelessly from the V-grip Air. The wireless flash triggering system is an out-of-the-box solution that works with all current and most modern Profoto flash systems. It is also possible to leverage the wireless flash triggering with other flash brands by using an optional receiver unit from Profoto.

    “We share Phase One’s and Mamiya’s passion for pushing the limits for our customers,” said Anders Hedebark, CEO, Profoto. “It is great to be working with companies that lead the medium format market in applied innovation for photographers. Our cooperation in designing the V-grip Air marks the beginning of new and better workflow tools we plan to be offering to professional photographers in the future.”

    The V-Grip Air unit features all the same camera controls and functionality as on the 645DF camera. An integrated L-bracket is available for portrait-mode mounting on a stand. The unit runs on the same type of battery used in Phase One and Leaf digital backs with a backup option to use standard AA type batteries.

    Pricing/Availability
    The Phase One/Mamiya V-Grip Air for Phase One and Mamiya 645DF camera systems is priced at $1290/€990. An L-bracket/handstrap standalone package is $299/€229. Products may be ordered from Phase One, Leaf and Mamiya partners. Please see: http://www.phaseone.com/v-grip or http://www.leaf-photography.com/prod...eone_645df.asp.

    Watch the videos in particular as it's easier to understand some of the cool features and parts/pieces included in the price if you see them.

    Re: Phase One, Mamiya and Profoto Announce First Vertical Grip With Built-in Flash Te

    Just watched them Doug awesome you had them up for us. Need to look into the receiver for my elinchroms. But I did get a Skyport speed transmitter the other day and just bought the 80 LS from CI today so in a couple days i can test to see if it will will work like this without the vertical grip than when the vertical grip comes just get a receiver or stay with the skyport. Thanks Yair for pointing that out.

    Gives me a couple options until I get a vertical grip in hand. I will report about the elinchrom speed transmitter since this is very new as well but I think I can sync very high shutter speeds with it. Still want the V grip regardless. Just finding a way around buying Profotos

    I can't see how to use the vertical grip and mount the camera on a tripod with an arca plate HORIZONTALLY.
    Doug, does that work?
    thanks

    ^^^

    I was thinking the same thing?
    do you need an additional plate for the bottom of the grip?
    or is that the second part that comes with the "L" bracket??
    thanks

    Looks like there is a thread socket in the grip which you could put one

    Looks like you just need to either remove or move the handstrap and then ou could use that threaded socket. I started to wonder why you would want to mount the camera in horizontal mode with the vertical grip, then realized it is the extra battery power and the Profoto Air triggering that really make this accessory attractive....duh ;-) (Would love something like that built into the Canon 1-series bodies already also, rather than having to mount the control device atop on the hot shoe. Very cool design.)

    We sent in our dealer purchase order for a batch of Phase One V-Grip Airs this afternoon to ensure we get some of the very first that are shipped. We're accepting pre-order deposites (20%) at our eStore and I suspect that we will have more pre-orders than our first batch.

    Very Nice, thanks for sharing Guy, totally cool news, in case I move to the DF body, but this it gives an incentive to me.

    -bob
    The bottom of the grip is a normal tripod thread mount which appears to be partially obscured by the hand strap. It's not clear from the images and descriptions if you could just pull the strap a bit towards the side to access a quick release plate on that tripod thread mount.

    Also not clear if the bottom tripod mount has the same two anchor hole points as the DF camera body's bottom mount. One of the dealer-info images shows it without those anchor holes but I'm hoping that's just a mockup image and the actual shipping product will have the traditional Mamiya anti-slip holes so we can all use our existing quick release plates.

    I'll try to get answers to those questions ASAP for you.

    Re: Phase One, Mamiya and Profoto Announce First Vertical Grip With Built-in Flash Te

    The addition of this vertical grip makes the body now handholdable for me (my hand was too large for the curent body) - the extra functionality of trigger for flash is a nice innovation - the bringing on of the LS series lenses is another positive. Alpa are making a cable which should improve working with Phase backs - another positve.

    Increasingly functional disparity between major players is decreasing - good work Phase and food for thought.

    Re: Phase One, Mamiya and Profoto Announce First Vertical Grip With Built-in Flash Te

    I was waiting for the grip since I bought into the Phase system - now it's (almost) here, and offers much more than I expected: beside the grip itself for portrait shooting, and the expected capability to use Phase batteries to power the camera, the unexpected Profoto wireless control together with the unexpected L bracket will both be great plusses for me (even if - as all things in MF land - it comes at a price...). Now - when will delivery start?

    Does the grip wireless control work fine with other strobe makers such as broncolor, hensel, bowens, etc to give you 1/1600 with no exposure loss whatsoever with the use of Profoto Air Transceiver?

    Well for $1200 it better be!!

    Yes, as long as your packs support it and if your back is a recent Aptus-II, DM, p40+ or P65+

    Well just a heads up, i use the Elinchrom Speeds on the Hasselblad at 1/800th, (no 1/1600th ) no problem. I know you want to know about 1600th, but just to reaffirm it works fine with 800th.

    Dumb question here - why are they calling this an "L" bracket? You still have to purchase and attach a camera plate in order to mount the camera in landscape, correct, or am I missing something?

    Perhaps it might best be called a "P" bracket?

    Don I need that car first. LOL

    waiting for Photokinia and see what is out there. I actually use a Arca P1 which i really like except it will not rotate down 90 degrees which bugs me sometimes.

    Don I need that car first. LOL
    See if John can mill out a slot for it.

    Re: Phase One, Mamiya and Profoto Announce First Vertical Grip With Built-in Flash Te

    Looks like we may need a very small plate in the grip. The issue i see is when it is in your hand than you will have the plate in the palm of your hand . That would be uncomfortable but this looks to come off really fast too and just drop in the battery pack like normal if your shooting handheld.

    I know for me when I am doing that runway gig two or three times a year in vertical mode on a monopod my hands get so sore from coming over the top and with my arthritis it is a nightmare. This would be awesome for me

    With a camera with vertical grip, if you shoot both ways, often the hand strap is just never where you want it.

    Would probably end up with two of them one for vert and one for horiz.
    I use the Hassy strap too.
    I wonder how that would work?

    Here is the answer:



    This is an image of the production unit.

    Thanks looks like we just have to come up with a small RRS or Kirk plate. The part that bugs me is if you have your hand in the grip you will have to negotiate the plate with your hand. Now going back up to the images posted it looks like the plate itself has a release on the L bracket. The second image on either side of the screw down knob it looks like two release buttons to take the L bracket on and off. As you can see in image 1 and 3 it is off and than on in 3 so there must be a release. This is pretty interesting
