    Does the new camera provide the 40mm of shift with all focal lengths?

    Yes but the image circle should be able to cover the whole field of view. Cheers

    From what I see in the pictures, the back doesn't look like it rotates though. So perspective control(rise/fall) might not be available on vertical shots, but side-->side shift would be...

    Or am I wrong(hopefully I am)

    Yes, it looks like the back doesn't rotate, and if that's the case, it (sorry) renders this thing pretty much useless. If the rise only works in one direction it's not much of an improvement over the old Fotoman versions.

    Also in my haste I was thinking that 40mm of rise would be enough so I could use this for most of my work. But now that I look more closely I see it's 20mm of rise + 20mm of fall, which isn't enough for me at least.

    Well folks ..thanks for the thoughts & comments~ The new 45 does support vertical shift ,20mm rise /20mm fall ,which would be available for use of most lenses in terms of image circle & field of view. We come up with such a hand-held 45 with shift in hoping that it would be more handy & practical to certain extent.Although hmm...We may consider adding more shift if that demand is out loud enough there . Cheers

    a rotating back would be a big plus too

    I agree Daniel. I know the unique Fotoman film back design is what allows the camera to be relatively small. But I wouldn't buy such a camera without a rotating back. A graflok back (or something that would allow interchangeable rollfilm and digital backs/adaptors) would also be a big plus.
