But the backer also owned a salmon farm in Sweden or Norway and featured all you could eat smoked salmon, if they knew you at their booth.
    A friend of mine who had been export manager of both Rollei and later LInhof was hired to be export manager for this new camera system.
    I hope this new design has a better future then this older camera had.

    Had nothing to do with Sinar. The marketing manager came from Linhof. They also had nothing to do with it.

    ...the all you can eat smoked salmon sounds great - but you really should also bring on the bagels (cut in half and fried in butter till golden brown), cream cheese, thinly sliced red onions and tomatoes, capers, and beer...then you'd truly have a feast!

    This is quite final body of the 45AF, in full carbon fiber.



    The body is designed for grafmatic/kinematic holders.
    Its only 24mm longer than the film holder, and this 24mm houses the complete motor drive and functions as an handle.
    The bottom side is only 6mm thick, and this might still be reduced in future versions.
    Its a completely new design by me. Enabling using regular double sided cassettes & graflock holders while keeping the dimensions as close to the film holders as possible.

    This is what's under the plastic handle, the redone drivetrain. This now gives a total of 63mm of focus pull, and overall makes the body extremely strong as the plastic only serves as a cover anymore.
    It can move basically any lens, i have tested it up to 3kg.

    Ill show the redesigned finder soon, and then it should be about done and shipping out for some field testing.
