ALPA 12 XY
ALPA History - 20th/70th anniversary - 2006: We realized the ALPA 12 XY in 2006 (launched at Photokina) after intensive discussions with architecture photographers. Remember it was still the time of transition and film was about to be replaced by digital backs but still there. So the movement layout was more generous with 25 mm in all directions and an rising front of even 45 mm to cater the 6x9 film backs as well as digital backs. Well, it is still THE machine for many professionals in architecture and also automotive photography. For fast stitching all ALPA cameras till then feature a swift uncoupling mechanism. Not cheap but more than handy.Due to its modularity you can still use it with the newest digital back. We build our cameras to last and not just to be replaced by the next model.
Short description: Modular medium format camera for film up to 6x9 and digital.
