    Thanks for sharing, Guy! Could you comment on the way you can adjust/position this arm? Is is just up and down and a rotation at this socket or are there any movements in the arm itself?

    Chris

    PS: I looked closely at the images of your new tech cam but I can't see a cube at it's bottom.

    Re: Show us your Tech Cam

    You won't see a cube at the bottom. The cube is gorgeous but it is also very slowing in other areas for me like fashion and people they just don't work as well there as a ballhead. I actually use a Arca Swiss Z1 double pan ballhead. Its like a rock too.

    At the hot shoe there is a ball socket just can't see the lever in the shots sorry but that you loosen and move to your position and its pretty flexible. Also folds pretty nice in your bag too

    Both these options look really handy - much better than my 5 finger option.

    Right: that little plastic thingy hanging below the camera (the LCC card) is 4 by 5 inches.

    Guy has already had one in his hot hands posted here and is supposed to have 3 such kits at the New Hampshire workshop. My guess is that he and/or Don will own one soon.

    Re: Show us your Tech Cam

    I shot it a couple weeks ago and will be shooting it again today at the workshop. It's so sweet, just had breakfast with Cambo's Rene Cook and talking all about it. Nice guy and Yair meet your Leaf representative last night Ziv very nice man. This trip is going to cost me big time. I must be nuts being a instructor at this workshop with all these toys. This stuff is just too tempting. I can feel extra baggage already going home with me. LOL

    Daves laughing his *** off at me right now I can feel it.

    Here's a link. Fits both my SK 120 and SK 72. Of course it comes off if I'm shifting - I use a flag in that situation (I carry a small piece of black foam core in my bag).

    The Heliopan rubber lens shade is discontinued, but there's a similar one made by B+W at B&H.

    I picked up my ALPA SYNC solution device + cable yesterday from the ALPA team in ZURICH .
    It is a very precise machined device , almost elegant and works perfectly .

    Here a quick shot (with LUMIX G1) showing the sync device + cable to my CFV .

    Re: Show us your Tech Cam

    Well, ofcourse I will explain...

    It is the original lens shade for a Fuji GX 680 III. I figured that the big size made for the fuji with filmsize 6x8cm + movements, it should be perfect for my Alpa.

    It comes with Fuji special rings that attach to the lens with a filtersize of 82mm.



    Here you see the 'all' the rings needed to my 72 and 120. I bought Heliopan (because they are brass) stepup rings, first 40,5 to 72, then 72 to 82, then Fuji special ring.



    The superb thing is that even without the big shade, the rings act as a very nice lens shade on its own!



    And when you need more extension, it snaps on to that ring in a splitsecond. Very fast and easy.



    This is as far as I go! Which means my next tweak is to shorten the top rails, since I don't need the full extension.



    Pretty cool

    Re: Show us your Tech Cam

    Forgot to mention, that it works perfect to the 35 XL too, I have to unscrew the 40,5 to 72 stepup and then it fits the centrefilter of the 35. With no extension of the bellows it is perfect for the wide!

    Re: Show us your Tech Cam

    @ Dan

    Thank you very much for showing your shading solution .
    I could imagine that for the HR 28mm the two rods will appear on the image .
    To shorten them is surely a good idea .

    I currently use the LEE UNIVERSAL and WA shades . Sorry , i have no images yet .
    Important is to have the WA Adapter rings .
    It is very similar to your solution . A typical screw-in system . The hood is snapped on to the adapter ring . This is easy and fast .

    The only disadvantage is when you want to use polarizers . But this is with all screw in solutions . Its possible but tricky and Not Good when in a hurry .
    But wie should Not be in a hurry anyway .

    @ Joe

    For the LEE System , please have a look at their homepage .
    Universal and WA hoods + WA Adapter rings for the different Lens Front threads.
    They are usually available within a couple of days .
    Regards . Jürgen .

    Joe, the Lee system works pretty well for me - both the filter holder and the shade. I like Lee because I use the Singh-Ray 4 x 6 grads a lot. I use it with tech lenses, various Phase lenses, and LF lenses up to a Apo Sironar N 360mm with a 105mm filter size. The Lee opening is only 95mm so that limits it for use with really big front elements and I use a different system there.

    I just use an adaptor for each lens size. Note, I have not tried it with anything wider than the 40mm HRW.

    One tricky thing is that the Lee wide angle shade is too big for LCC plates. I keep meaning to get one made that slips into the filter holder slots or is big enough to fit across the front of the collapsed shade.

    I use the LEE WA with the HR-28mm . No trouble at all .
    My Acryl LCC plate (Square 20 cm) covers easily the LEE adapter .

    I use an SKGrimes slip on adapter for my WA lenses: http://www.skgrimes.com/products/slip-on-filter-adapter They slip over the outside of the lens barrel, and are held on by friction imparted by an O-ring.

    They make them to order, so you can get an adapter to fit your lens with whatever size filter and hood you choose. My two WA lenses, the 35 and 47 Digitars, both have the same barrel diamter, so I can use the adapter on either.

    I do not like the shading solutions which put weight on the front of the lens either . No matter which brand .
    I am afraid the weight could damage the mechanics in the lens .

    That includes Steve's suggestion .

    Unfortunately there are no adapters for the ARCA bellow shade and my plans to build one myself for the ALPA are still plans .

    Yes, I have thought about it. The actual shade does not really weigh a lot and I don't think that is a problem in itself. BUT if you accidently hit the shade or keep it on the lens and put in your bag with force, then it acts as a lever and the force to the lens is considerable. That's why I am extremely careful in the use of it, since it is so quick and easy to put on the ring, it is the very last thing I put on the lens before exposing and the very first thing I take off when it is done! I would not dream of walking with it on or handle it in any way with it on.

    After all, it was made for the Fujinons and the are MUCH sturdier in the front.

    Re: Show us your Tech Cam

    All of this discussion and viewing the images of the cameras makes me want to go out and try one. I have to admit that I have never used a Tech Cam, but have always been fascinated by them and the results that one can achieve.
