    MF Back Question

    Hello :

    Not very well versed with MF Backs and thus have the following question -

    Say if one has a Technical Camera ( Alpa ) and a MF Body ( Mamiya DF ), how can one use the same back on both these cameras ?

    Would the plates for the back not be different for each of the cameras ? Would that mean that each time one needs to use either of the cameras, the plates would have to be screwed in and out ?

    Sorry, if this is too basic a question.


    Thanks,

    Jai

    If you have a back with a Mamiya/Phase mount, you just need a adapter plate from Alpa and you're good to go.
    ALPA of Switzerland - Manufacturers of remarkable cameras - ALPA backadapter MA645A
    The adapter plate just "clicks" on like when you mount the back to the DF body and is removed the same way.

    The same goes for all other mounts and no matter which tech platform you use (Cambo, Alpa, Arca)

    Backs come in 4 (or 5) mounts:
    V - hassy V
    M - mamiya / phase
    C - contax
    H - hassy h
    Hy6/AFi

    If using a tech or view camera you simply buy your adapter plate in the appropriate mount.

    After that you pop the back off and on with no additional hassle.
