    digital back adaptors

    I have a really easy question. I know I can get adapters to use Hasselblad H system digital backs on the Mamiya RZ. I can also use Mamiya M system backs on the RZ. Can I use non M system backs on M bodies? Can I use non H system backs on H bodies? What about the Hasselblad V system?

    Thanks
    John

    On a tech camera yes but on a SLR no such adapters. However, in the case of Phase One backs the mount will need changing which is very expensive.

    The legacy Sinar eMotion digital back gives the option of interchangeable mounts for Hassy, Mamiya, Contax, Fuji etc etc

    Families of bodies which are completely "mount specific":
    - Phase One / Mamiya 645
    - Hassy H
    - Hassy 500
    - Contax 645
    - Rollei 6008
    - Rollei Hy6 / Leaf AFi

    Families of bodies which can use multiple types of bodies, albeit with some limitations on some body+mount combos:
    - Fuji 680
    - Mamiya RZ

    Families of bodies which will accept any mount with no limitations:
    - Most view cameras
    - All tech cameras like Arca Swiss RM3Di, Cambo Wide RS, Alpa Max

    A good dealer can step you through all these intro questions very efficiently, and more importantly can answer the questions you don't know yet to ask :-).

    The diagram in the middle of this post helps a lot with the RZ.
