The chipsi ze on the back should preferable be 6x6, and fit hasselblads. If anyone have questions regarding the Linhof M679 Ive be glad to help.

    Digital back on Linhof M679

    I would go to the PEI forum and ask the moderator there, who's name is Andrew Rodney. He's one of the more knowledgeable people about digital products in the country.

    The PEI website is at:

    Your question may already be answered in one of the discussion forums. If not, ask it and/or email Andrew Rodney directly. . . . I was on their website last week, and was having some problems getting into the main discussion forum. Hopefully they've fixed it. If not, keep trying; it'll be worth the wait.

    Digital back on Linhof M679

    From my conversations with the makers of the Better Light scanning digital back I found that the scan area on their backs is 72mm x 96mm. Probably too big for y our camera. But their backs can be used in the field. I found them to be very he lpful, so you may want to get in contact with them at: http://www.betterlight.co m/

    Sinar offers three digital backs, all with adapters to fit Hasselblad: The Sinar back (24x24mm,2048x2048 pixel CCD); the Leaf Volare (24x36mm, 2048x3072 pixel C CD); and the Leaf DCB II Live (31x31mm,2048x2048 pixel CCD). Unfortunately all o f the Sinars are AC and not battery driven.

    Digital back on Linhof M679

    The M579 takes backs up to 6x9cm. If you use the Hasselblad adapter the M679 takes any film or digital back that fits a Hasselblad. Same if you use the Mamiya adapters, etc.

    Most users of the M679 that have been using digital have been using the Phase One backs. You might want to contact Phase One.

    We have had no reports from owners of the M679 using backs other than Phase One, Dicomed or Kod
