    What price Sinar 54H?

    A Sinar 54H would fit into my system, but

    what would I have to pay?

    what would I need with it to make it work on an ELD555, 500 or Flexbody

    What would I need to make it work on a Sinar P3?

    I have a

    P3

    sliding back

    adapter

    800/400 firewire cable

    ¿What about software?

    The current owner has it working... so I hope I can see it working on my kit before I pay for it.

    The Sinar 54H is a 22mp multi shot digital back if I'm not mistaken. I had one on a 555 ELD at one time. It came in two flavors, a fiber optic connection and a firewire. Stay away from the fiber optic version unless you have an old computer, plan on shooting exclusively in a studio environment and are getting the back for next to nothing.

    The 54H has an interchangeable plate that can be fitted to accommodate the hasselblad platform. You will just need to make sure you have a "V series" mount to your sliding back.

    I'll have to check with John, our Sinar guru, but I'm sure we have plenty of used Sinar equipment to get you up and running on your P3 and Blad.

    Thanks - but the owner interested in selling me a 54H is two or three hours' drive away in the UK, and I hope to see the system working on my kit before I pay for it... I was mostly wondering what is a fair price?

    The Sinar sliding backs have no adapter plate - you need a different £2k sliding back for H and V cameras! ... but yes, you still need an adapter plate - I hope the one I have is compatible.

    In my opinion.....

    The trade in value on a 75H would be the max it is worth.

    $2500 USD.
