    Sound Blimp for Phase one cameras?

    Is there any kind of sound blimp to reduce noise for medium format?

    Thanks

    I have never seen one.

    There are however underwater housings for the DF and H4D which might work (with a flat port) although obviously they are very large. HERE

    If you're using a Phase One XF you can also shoot from Live View with an LS lens, in which case only the leaf shutter fires. There is still an audible sound but it is much less than the sound of the mirror/focal-plane shutter.

    Dear Doug,
    thanks for the reply and yes that would work.
    But for my kind of shooting ( need for AF, and my series of lenses, most non LS) this wouldn`t work.
    An normal blinp would be fine, if there is non in stock, i`m going to do it by myself.


    Thanks
