    RM3di extender m-line two

    I want to reuse my m-line two rear standard with my RM3di. I know some people make extenders for changing formats. I wanted to know if anybody here knows how to do this with the RM3Di / which extender and from where.

    Thanks.

    Arca Swiss itself makes the appropriate component. Contact your Arca Swiss dealer. If you don't have one feel free to email me [email protected].

    Re: RM3di extender m-line two

    What are you trying to achieve here, using the rm3di as a front standard on a 4x5 m-line ?
    If so you'd need one of Arca 141 to 110mm bellows : soufflet 6x9-4x5 pour chambre Arca-Swiss

    I can't think of another way to 'reuse' a rear standard with the rm3di...

    Hi-

    The simplest way to use the m-line 2 with the Rm3di is to get an A/S 110x110mm lens board with an R-mount adapter (I think it's about$250). This allows you to mount your r-mount lenses to the front standard of the m-line 2 just like any other lens. You should probably talk with Rod Klukas the A/S rep or an A/S dealer for details.

    I already have the part you mention, but I am trying to use the fine focus capability of the RM3Di.

    I am also aware of a part Arca now sells that is a modified rear carrier that can be used with the RM3Di on a rail, but I was hoping to simply use the rear carrier's I already have.

    Thanks for tip.
