ALPA 12 FPS Contax 645 Kit


ALPA 12 FPS Contax 645 Kit

The ALPA 12 FPS Contax 645 kit allows you to continue using the exceptional Carl Zeiss© T* lenses for the Contax 645. The FPS controls the electromechanical aperture of the lenses and can also operate the focus motor. Due to the built-in focal plane shutter of the ALPA 12 FPS, operation with almost any digital back is possible. The kit comes complete with the camera and adjustable adapters for the digital back of your choice. Please indicate both digital back type and adaptation (Hasselblad H, Hasselblad V, Contax 645, Phase One XF, Mamiya/Leaf AFD, Leaf AFi/Sinar Hy6, Sinar S30|45).

All elements are part of the ALPA-12 platform and can be combined with existing or future ALPA equipment.


The ALPA 12 FPS is probably the most astounding mirrorless medium-format camera for digital backs. It offers an integrated and electronically controlled focal plane shutter, runs with extremely low vibrations and has a fastest exposure time of 1/4000 sec. It is also possible to use mechanical and electronic leaf shutters – installed in the lens – for particularly short flash synchronization speed. This opens up a whole range of lenses, from the brand new to the tried and tested, of different manufacture and design, to be used with the ALPA 12 FPS which thus allows the direct use of the respective properties and specific characters of the individual optics. A constantly growing selection of ALPA precision adapters with and without adjustment mechanisms allows the use of the FPS in the most varied photographic areas. A single camera can now be used at the highest possible level for taking situations from macro to landscape, from repro to architecture or from photo reportage to studio work.

Further exceptional properties and features of the ALPA 12 FPS, which may even be unique on their own or in combination include: electronic aperture control, remote control, wide range exposure bracketing, multiple exposures, simple user interface, flexible programmability, continuous expansion of functions through uploadable firmware and much, much more. Only a short time ago, photographers could only dream of a camera with these options – this dream has now become reality with the ALPA 12 FPS.
