| p.4 #18 · Fuji X-E1 tips and tricks |
I'm curious about the Novoflex rotating collar, and the Canon electronic remote release.
Not certain what the collar does, and I'm guessing you used different cable on the remote release?
As a quick update, my RRS grip arrived in the mail this morning and I mounted it onto the RRS L bracket for the Fuji X-E1. Initial testing shows that the camera handles much better than when "naked".
I will handle the camera with the grip/bracket a little and then get some photos taken of the grip/L bracket, Novoflex R to Fui X adapter, Novoflex rotating collar, soft release, Canon electronic remote release, an assortment of some of my Leica R glass, and the camera shortly.
Once I have the photos I will post something, but it could take a couple of days.
The Novoflex rotating collar:ASTAT-MFT
is used with the Novoflex adapters to the Fuji X cameras and the M 4/3 camera adapters, like this one for the Leica R lenses:
It allows heavier lenses including medium telephotos, large macro lenses, zoom lenses that lack a built in collar to be rebalanced and to lock onto an Arca Swiss Type QR clamp- but not the RRS clamps. The plate is too narrow for the RRS clamps, but fits fine on my screw type clamps from Kirk Enterprises, ProMediaGear, Markins, I believe my older Wimberley, and older screw type RRS clamps to lock properly.
The rotating collar allows the camera and lens to rotate through 360 degrees to position the camera and lens in any needed orientation as in horizontal or vertical.
As to the Canon remote, it is one that I already had for my point and shoot G cameras. My Panasonic Lumix electronic remote would not fire the camera, but the Canon would. I would presume that most will especially after the last firmware update.
