Does anyone know if the FlexAdapter can be used on the Rollei X-act2 or Linhof M679/Techno? Are the adapters available or would they need to be custom?

Hi

It can not as the flex adapter and all the fittings are for 4x5 cameras.
Both Rollei and Linhof makes appropriate adapters to us with any Phase One back.

Thanks for the heads up Ulf. I currently have a Cambo Ultima 45 which I understand I'll need shims for if I want to use a FlexAdapter. I recently tried out a FlexAdapter and was impressed with the quality and want to give it a shot with my Credo40 back and camera movements. I plan on moving to a smaller camera body soon and may look into making a custom mount for the FlexAdapter if it seems viable to transfer it to a Rollei X-act (and Novoflex bellows which uses the same size mount) or possibly a Linhof M679/Techno mount. Wondering if anyone has used the FlexAdapter on a 6x9 sized camera.

I think the solutions they provide would fit you better.
It certainly looks better on the camera :-)

I would of course recommend the Linhof first.
