    Arca Swiss Photokina News

    Here┤s some raw and unfiltered info for Arca aficionados.
    Just some quick and dirty shots of a product folder i grabbed at the Arca booth (about 150kb jpg┤s each).
    btw: Mr. Vogt Jr. told me a website is the "next project" on their to-do-list.
    There┤s room for hope ...

    In such a case, a new adversary to the Swiss Alpha then?

    There are two models
    The m3d (image link above) goes up to the 6x9 cm format.
    The L3d is a 4"x5".

    In such a case, the L3d should be able to take a 6x12 Horseman RF back (beside the 6x9 RFH) and would be a very versatile tool. Looking forward to more info about it, maybe on their promissed website?

    I have manipulated the two 6x9 and 4x5" R-line prototype at the Fontfroide Large format conference this week-end.
    The backs are those existing for the 6x9 and for the 4x5" so there is no question of compatibility for the backs : everything that fits the F-line will fit the back of the R-line of same format, not forgetting reducing back plates for the 4x5", it is as simple as that.

    Has anyone heard any more news on the R-line cameras? Mostly wondering about availability dates.

    Hello,

    I have spoken with Mr. Martin Voght at Photokina. The R-line camera 6x9 and 4x5 should be available begin 2007.
