    DHW - Rolleiflex Hy6 Version 2

    Does anyone have this camera? I am having a problem getting the camera to work with the SINAR eMotion 75LVr back.

    SECOND QUESTION:
    Will the Rolleiflex Version 2 Hy6 work with the APTUS II digital backs?

    Per vague memory, was not Sinar Hy6 for Sinar mount of backs, while Rolleilex Hy6 and Leaf AFi camera was with mount for Leaf AFi backs? If so perhaps DHW can still provide Hy6 Mod2 for Sinar back???

    No, but almost yes... I have latest non Mod 2 Rolleiflex Hy6 and use with Leaf AFi-II 12 back. Rolleiflex Hy6 works with AFi-II backs that are same as Aptus-II backs except Leaf AFi mount, more modern casing than Aptus-II backs, rotating sensor and tilt display.

    For more info and contact info to DHW (suggest contact either Mr. Hartje or Mr. Schoenrock);

    Test reports and other information

    Fwiw I am indded very pleased with my Hy6 and 80MP Leaf

    Best regards,

    Anders,

    It is good to know that the Hy6 version 2 will work with the Aptus II 12, as you have. I am looking to go in that direction, but while waiting for the back to become available tried the SINAR back on the Rolleiflex Hy6 - and found that it does not seem to communicate.

    I am awaiting an answer from DHW.

    Thanks again for your positive experience, I was beginning to think that I had made a big boo boo.

    Jerry

    Yaya,

    Thank you for your timely and comprehensive (and comforting) response. I have been unable to get a response from the company making the camera, so your response from the LEAF side is terrific.

    Jerry,

    I would suggest you telephone them. When I do so with Mr. Hartje I get his reply right away. They speak very fine English.

    Best regards,
    Anders

    Anders,

    I did get a reply, stating that he was out of the office and would respond when he returned. Thank you for your helpful suggestions, and up to date info.

    Best regards,

    Jerry

    Did you set the e75LV in Hy6 mode? I once forgot to switch it back from x-sync mode.
