Adapter Plates

Hi Forum,

New here. Starting to collect these older backs as I am quite interested in them.

I am interested in the Leaf Valeo/Aptus series. I am wondering about the adapter plates needed.

I have a Leaf Valeo 11 in V Mount. I would like to mount that to my RZ 67 IID.

Will the RZ 67 adapter plate that connects the Leaf Valeo 11 V mount back to the RZ 67, be able to used to connect other Leaf Backs in V mount to the RZ 67?

To say it another way, if i get an adapter plate that connects to the RZ on one side and to the the Valeo 11 that is V mount on the other side, will that same RZ to V mount plate work for other V mount Leaf backs as well?.... each back different in some way resulting in each back needing its on adapter plate specific to the back model?


A leaf Valeo 11 in v mount fitting -> RZ67 = a part number for the plate, lets say, 0001

Will a Leaf Valeo 17 in v mount fitting -> RZ67 = the same part number as above (0001)? Or will it be a different plate part number specific to the the Valeo 17?

Will a Leaf Valeo 22 in V mount fitting -> RZ67 = the same part number (0001)? or will it be a different plate part number specific to the Valeo 22 ? etc

I am trying to understand the adapter plate situation as it pertains to the Leaf family of backs from the Valeo 11 through to Valeo 17, to the Valeo 22 and on into the Aptus family, the Aptus 22, Aptus 65, Aptus 75, Aptus54s and then into the Aptus-II 6 and finally the Aptus-II 10.

Is it the same V mount back plate to RZ 67 for all these backs or do the plates change from model number to model number or family to, Valeo backs use the same plates, but the Aptus series use a different plate and the Aptus II series use a different plate yet again?

Trying to understand the situation how the Leaf Digital back to RZ 67 adapter plate story works

Thank you to anyone who can enlighten me.

Hoping maybe ULF can help with this? Seems to be very knowledgeable about all things Phase/Leaf

ULF? You there ?

There is only one adapter for Leaf Valeo / Aptus which has Hasselblad V fitting (Often referred to as Universal fitting) for the RZ.
There is however several part numbers and the only difference is which viewfinder mask comes with for the RZ.
Hence why you see so many of them here ... 3656173696

Many thanks ULF for your reply and information.

I did mange to get hold of an adapter plate that is RZ -> V mount interface -> Valeo 11

There are no markings on the plate to say it is from Phase One as per many of the other adapter plates for the RZ -> Phase backs.

But the Valeo 11 I picked up, came mounted onto this plate - it is a V mount interface Valeo 11 and the plate does mount onto the RZ 67. So from what you have said, any Valeo/Aptus in V mount will be able to use this plate to work with the RZ.

So thats half the battle won. Now to work out cabling etc to get the back to capture.

Thanks gain for your reply.
