    Phase1 XF - RRS L Plate

    FYI...I spoke with Really Right Stuff today regarding them producing an L plate for the new XF body. As they were not aware of the new body they requested those who would like an L plate for the XF to contact RRS @ [email protected] andlet them know this is a product you would like to see available so they can see if there is a large enough audience to justify production

    Look closely at the product shoot from Phase showing a lineup of three bodies. The XF on the far right seems too be wearing a L bracket.

    According to the specs, the width is about the same. Depending on the placement of the tripod socket, the current one might already fit the new camera.


    (W x H x D)

    645DF+ 153 x 128 x 184 mm
    ......XF 152 x 135 x 160 mm

    The XF is built to honor legacy accessories (save for electrically integrated components). It even has the Mamiya Legacy "dimples" on the bottom.
    The existing L Bracket fits just fine, no need for a new one.

    Don, I think that bracket on the Phase One XF is the Phase One L bracket they manufacture. We do believe we confirmed that it fit the XF, so that means there is one currently available for the XF already, complete with a nice handstrap and a Phase One logo.

    Re: Phase1 XF - RRS L Plate

    So hopefully this means the smart Flex L plate for the DF will also fit?

    Re: Phase1 XF - RRS L Plate

    As I recall, RRS actually makes the L-bracket for Phase One. The RRS version does not have the pretty etched logo. RRS also sells the Camdapter hand strap---the same one that Phase uses on their L-bracket.

    Assuming this is the same bracket shown on the XF, I'll place bets that the Flex L Plate won't be a problem on the XF either.

    Re: Phase1 XF - RRS L Plate

    We have L Brackets from RRS, Phase One, and SmartFlex in our inventory (the RRS L Bracket is the legacy version).

    I tried all 3 on the XF Camera today, and they all seem to fit and function perfectly fine.

    Re: Phase1 XF - RRS L Plate

    What advantages to the Smart Flex? What do the knobs allow for? I assume that is the bracket in the picture?

    Thanks
    Paul

    Thank you Paul, The priority of the smart Flex is = to keep the lens at the same place (perspective ,composition unchanged)
    when switching from Horizontal to Vertical or V to H. and as the camera plate is move able,
    this enable to find The Nodal point for panoramic shooting.

    Thanks
