What is a Cold Shoe?
Included with the Deluxe and Premium Models is a “Cold Shoe” flash mount.
This will conveniently allow you to mount any standard electronic flash,
hotshoe for a studio style strobe or off camera wireless flash.
What are the Viewfinder choices?
One modification available on all our cameras is the choice of Rangefinders. At the time of purchase you may choose which viewfinder your camera comes with. Most will want one of the metal Zeiss-Ikon manufactured Range Finders, though all three styles are available.
All view ports work well, though it has been noticed that the smaller windowed Zeiss version seems to have more range finder overlay to it. The differences between the two Zeiss rangefinders is ONLY in the outside metal cover, internally they are identical.
We offer the upgrade choice free of cost on our Deluxe and Premium models. On all our other cameras the choice is available, for an additional cost.
What is X-Sync Flash?
This camera boasts an electro-mechanical modification to the shutter and flash system. The common wisdom has been that these cameras are not compatible with modern electronic flash units, completely true.
The original flash system was based on flash bulbs which needed to be replaced after every exposure. The nature of flash bulbs required the flash to be “ignited” slightly before the shutter was fully open. This is known as “M-Sync (reference at Wikipedia).
Modern “X-Sync”, or electronic flash systems are fast enough that they need to be triggered at the moment the shutter is fully open. If one were to place an electronic flash on a “M-Sync” camera, the result would be uneven and cutoff light, as the flash would fire before the shutter was fully open. Furthermore, electronic flashes have less light duration than flash bulbs, making timing all the more important. The modification performed on this camera corrects the timing issue.
What is a Re-Birth Certificate?
We give each and every camera that leaves our shop a new name.
And what proud parent wouldn’t want their adopted child to have a birth certificate? Here at LandCameras, we feel your camera is no exception.
We include, along with our Care and Feeding guide, a Re-Birth Certificate that certifies authenticity, naming, and features of your new camera.
