First of all, it did not work well today,
so I will come back for 2nd round try soon after searching necessary information.
(left top) Hasselblad CF-22 digital back with AFD adapter (left bottom) Hasselblad V adapter
(middle) Finder mask
(Right) Instruction manual, Torque drive, Sync cable
This is Mamiya AFD adapter. Note electronic contacts upper side.
Mamiya adapter removed.
I got stuck at first since the screw driver not fit at all. Then remember I have another driver (red one) and found it fits perfect.
How come they use different screws for the same digital back?
CF-22 without adapter.
Can see electronics contacts surrounded all corners…. not sure them are all used but could be
if consider Imacon / Hasselblad support many other medium format camera which not supported by Leaf, Phase One
Switched to Hasselblad V adapter.
But, the back does not capture the image with Sync cable.
It just stay calm as if no signal came in.
During test, 1 time it capture the image suddenly (it reminds me previous Leaf Valeo set up which took 3 month to figure out…)
So I think there is poor contact point somewhere instead of fundamental issue.
(1) Poor X sync from the lens –> I have SWC/M so tested with this lens too : Same symptom –> not this problem
(2) Cable itself bad –> I tried 2 cables & they were working find with Leaf back –> not this problem
(3) Adapter’s sync port issue –> may be or may be not :
If I connect to Digital back directly instead through adapter, I could figure out whether it is OK or NOT.
But before this try, I like to find out more information. There are 2 ports, one in red and the other in green. Which one should I?
(4) Software setting –> there are different settings, ELX, ELD, CW & generic…etc
since I tried all of them, I don’t think it is the cause of the problem. But there may be something I did not figure out yet…
Anyway, I tentatively conclude it is contact issue because of 1 time successful image capturing.
Probably attaching adapter is not adequate…
I switch back to Mamiya AFD now, and will come back this job soon again.
