    Dave,

    There's also this one: ALPA of Switzerland - Manufacturers of remarkable cameras - Hand grip for ALPA 12 TC, STC, MAX, XY, FPS

    I don't use the tilt adapter on my TC, so I've avoided anything more than the fingertip grip, but this has tempted me.

    Maybe someone will buy one and report on it.

    Steve

    The regular sized grip is a lot easier on the hand. Also it locks the releases on the right side with a spring loaded clip covering the lever.

    I have one of the small grips sitting in my parts box too alongside the left side wake-up grip and cabling that I used once and then stored.

    Thank you Graham!
    It was that first box of crayons that hooked me.

    Congratulations on the FPS.
    I look forward to your adventures with it.

    BTW, I don't like the little finger grip. My 70hr is an SB17, and that adapter jams my fingers with this grip. If I get the regular hand grip it looks like there is more finger roo[CENTER]m based on Alpa's photos. Is that right?

    Dave
    Dave here is a quick shot of the ALPA handgrip (synthetic smooth) I use with my TC. I purposely photographed it with my largest lens, the SK 28 so you can see the clearance. I have smaller hands when compared to most males, but the grip is very comfortable in my hand with more room available if I did need it for a larger hand and/or fingers. Unfortunately I have not tried the finger grip so I cannot give an experienced comparison. The picture of me holding the TC was taken while the left hand took the snap with my NEX-7 (not easy!!). Hope this helps!

    Kind regards,
    Darr

    Thank you Darr! Yes that looks like a lot more room. Time to place an order for the most expensive hand grip on the planet.

    Ok maybe the control stick on an F-35 Fighter is a little more, but not by that much.

    Dave,

    There is also the FPS Grip option too that'll work better than the finger grip. It's only a Learjet control stick price vs F-35/B2 Bomber stick price

    Maybe I'm strange, but I'd like to see Darr's 50c back instead of the camera... The Alpa is cool and everything, but the chrome trimmings of the back look pretty too.

    Hmm, a chrome CFV-50c/Alpa image. That may come under the category of an NSFW thread.

    That retro look of the CFV back fits the ALPA body very well. It's sad they've kept only one sensor option in the line. I saw a CFV-39 being sold on ebay yesterday for $7300, that's more than I paid for my H4D-50. The CFV is really popular stuff.

    Here you are .
    Two handgrips mounted to my STC . That's now very similar to an SWA .
    Have a look to the top . I made a spacer with the Voigtländer VF on top .
    This spacer allows an upshift of the BACK by 10mm if required , additional to the downshift of 18mm . the SWA can't do that . But of course , if you leave the spacer away , you can turn the camera upside down , as recommended for the SWA .
    This new handgrip is not as beautiful as a RoseWood grip . It looks a bit bulky , but is extremely good in my hands . Soft and solid . A joy to use .

    The cable release you can see in each handgrip belongs to the set .
    In fact , the set comes with a long and a short cable release .
    I found the short one obsolete and therefore don't use it .
    Depending on your preferred hand , you can mount the grip on the left or right side or you mount two grips .
    The advantage of two grips with two cable releases is , that you can use one release to shoot your LCC and the other one to shoot your image .

    I'm the odd one out, for sure. Once in a while I wonder if I should post a pic of my Linhof Techno sitting on the lightbox of my Imacon 949! Maybe next week I can post an iPhone pic of said Techno sporting a CFV-50c during testing.

    Holy crap! Even more impressive would be the story that was told to convince the "Home Office"!

    Can't wait to see some images, the whole device looks quite interesting and in a smaller package could be the future of tech cams.

    Wonderful. Love it right down to the ribbon cables. Someone, somewhere, has a business plan that he believes justifies the manufacture of it. I wonder.

    Please post some "behind the scenes" images showing how you use it.

    Hi jotloob

    The camera and its noticeable size is often discussed. I would like to lead the debate to the application.

    When shooting a landscape to be shown with 2000 x1600 pixels, the depth of field (DOF) is huge. Using a 80mm lens @ f8 focussed to 14.7m covers anything from 9.1m up to infinity. Tilt/swing really makes no sense for that.
    The perfect camera for this jobs is a spacer which ensures a precise space between a fine lens and digital back. This camera type has already been developed and brought to perfection with wooden hand grips.

    CAPcam addresses applications where the DOF is smaller and objects of different distance should be in focus.
    When highest resolution output is required (i.e large prints to be viewed from short distance) and objects are closer to the camera, the DOF becomes very small. Focussing the same 80mm lens @ f8 to 1m distance leads to a DOF of 17mm, ranging from 992mm to 1009mm.
    Here tilt/swing allows to freely align the focal plane along the target surface.
    Using the appropriate lens, CAPcam allows to cover image scales from 1:infinity up to 4:1 while doing tilt/swing and shift using the full image circle offered by the lens. To allow this, a large camera extension is required - this makes the size of the camera.

    It is a common practice to use focus bracketting/stacking to extend the DOF. CAPcam perfectly supports this, even in combination with tilt/swing and shift. Using focus stacking with a non tilt/swing camera often requires a huge amount of images to be merged. Also items will come into focus which are not not in the plane of interest. Focus stacking completely fails on moving targets (i.e. water surface, raindrops running down on a window).


    Kind regards

    This is a great "camera bag" but not sure it's big enough for Graham...

    I saw this in person recently when Don and I closed a shady deal in a shopping mall in the outskirts of Phoenix, at least the security guys found it shady.
    I guess I could live with this "camera bag" if the rental agencies at the airports presented me with it

    Re: Show us your Tech Cam

    This is the coolest shade I have ever used Weighs close to nothing, just slide it on and off in a second (yet snug and safe fit). Excellent result with a little higher contrast even with lightsource behind you, realising that straylight effects the Rodie 32 more than I thought. Flagging really isn't enough for that particular lens. Highly recommended for 32 owners.

    Dan, that looks like the first useable hood I've seen for the 32HR. Looked on the Alpa site and could not find it. Do you have a part number or model number?

    Cheers...

    It has its slot at 'Accesories Lenses', but no info yet. I think it is completely new. But as always, shoot an email to Alpa, they always reply swiftly.

    I have not tried it yet with shifts, but zeroed with the FPS I already feel that this is a totally must have!!

    It was, I provided them with a CAD drawing and had them make 3 pcs:
    1" base, no openings; 4" layer with the openings; and 1/2" layer, no openings.
    All layers profile cut to fit in my gura gear bag. Cost about 135$

    Re: Show us your Tech Cam

    That's good to know. Your solution is much more elegant than mine..... I just wrap things and throw them into either of my empty bags (Airport Essential, LowePro AW). Everything is really pretty well protected and I'm able to have either my 'Regular' or 'Long' rail in the bag with the back and lens attached - bellows goes into the laptop compartment. I just put a 1 gallon baggy over the back and lens assembly to keep it clean and lay it down on its side. Fits perfectly with lots of room to spare and assembles quickly.

    Hope you get some more use out of your actus..... I wouldn't be without mine. I toyed with the XF but its not for me. I just got to have the ability to have rise or shift and have a large collection of perfectly aligned Schneider Digitars. In the end I would use the XF the same way I use my Actus.... on a tripod using live view for focus so it really made no sense to me. You know how it is..... horses for courses.

    Thanks for the info......

    I did that for a couple of years, now self butt kicking for waiting so long for a pretty simple solution. Keeps that 32 rodie happy

So I spent an hour to layout a basic three lens FPS outfit. I couldn't get any shades to fit, but that's the only things missing for a full day out
