ALPA 12 FPS - Focal Plane Shutter
"THE MORE I USE THE ALPA FPS THE MORE I LIKE IT."
Mark Dubovoy - Essay on Luminous Landscape, July 2013
The ALPA 12 FPS (focal plane shutter) opens the door into a new dimension: from the modular camera platform to the open toolbox. The ALPA 12 FPS is a shutter module when it is used together with another ALPA 12 camera. It is, however, also an independent camera when it is combined on its own with a back, a lens and a suitable adapter. This opens up the use of brand-new or fond old lenses from dozens of different manufacturers of optical systems – with or without a central shutter and with or without manual or electronic aperture control. Plus a free choice of format – only limited by the image circles of the lenses and by the sensor sizes. Multi exposure capability adds artistic functionality not seen like this in digital medium format photography.
The ALPA 12 FPS is a joy to use with superb ergonomics and unique functionality.
