Close up rings for 645DF

Postby NN109526UL2 » Thu Dec 29, 2011 10:15 am

Are the close up rings, noted on the PO site, available? Samy's, L.A. does not have them for rental. Will check with Fusion but wondered about availability before my call in to Fusion.

Hi

They are all available and on stock at Phase One.
I can of course not say if the individual dealer have them on local stock.

Ulf,

Wow. Can't find these rings anywhere! No rentals or sales. Very special order is what I am hearing. S.O. for a basic staple lens adapter?
I did find a dealer that has some rental extension tubes for the 645AF body. They are marked NA401, NA402 and NA403. Would these extension tubes work on the 645DF body/IQ180 and, if so, would they work with the 80LS lens or the 80AF lens? I would NOT need auto focus.
I hate rental. Gotta BUY this system!

They should work, if it Mamiya branded rings then just make sure they have the electronic connectors so it is not an older one for PRO TL cameras

Thanks, Ulf. I have started the 645DF/IQ180 purchase process by buying a set of "used" rings that were rented only once. They are essentilly new and they work with your 645DF system. I have rented the 645DF system for this New Years weekend and I love it. I was wondering. I have your P25, set for my H1 system. Could my P25 be re-configured to mate with the 645DF body? Then, I would have two Backs, for the same shooting platform, for the wide range of my clientele and job assignments. I could double up on the 645DF body and a few of the lenses as backup. I really prefer the 1/4000 second exposures for my helicopter jobs, as opposed to the 1/800 H1 limit. It would also allow me to shoot with 1/1600 flash sync as needed.

Hi

We do what is called "platform change" on backs what this is, is a swap of backs. And due to the original P25 is since long discontinued it would not be possible to do today.
However I am sure that if you contact a dealer they could do some form of upgrade for the back to one in the P+ product range.

Thank you. I was able to buy a "like new" set of Close Up Rings from a shop in L.A. They had never really rented them out and were happy to see me come in their front door. I have used the rings with the rental IQ180 a couple of times. Wow! What a machine!
