Sinar p2

The first choice in the range of purely mechanical cameras is the Sinar p2. Thanks to its refined design, settings and focusing with the Sinar p2 can be accomplished faster than with any other view camera. Not only does this save precious time, it also provides significant gains in precision. This model, too, can be adapted for use in digital photgraphy.

When p stands for perfection you could only be talking about the Sinar p2, a camera truly in a class by itself. The Sinar p2 assembles a group of features found nowhere else, and after almost 30 years the p series is still the standard of comparison for monorail view cameras.

The Sinar p2´s precision and stability are important for digital photography applications, and its yaw-free design makes it even easier for you to set camera movements exactly.

Features

  • For photography on 4×5″ sheet film, 120 and 220 roll film, and digital photography. Can also be upgraded for 5×7″ and 8×10″ photograpy.
  • The yaw-free design of the Sinar p2 lets you combine swings and tilts with no time-consuming readjustments.
  • The Sinar p2 is based on the unique asymmetric tilts and swings, not the traditional center or base tilts. This means rapid and precise settings, without ever loosing sharpness on the axis.
  • You can calculate exact swings and tilts in seconds using the asymmetric movements and measuring scales. You won´t have to guess at your movements anymore, and it´s fast – very fast. How?
  • All Sinar p2 movements are gear driven and feature zero position click stops.
  • The Sinar p2´s precision micrometer drives are smooth and self-arresting. Once a movement is set, it stays. You get easy one-hand operation, and no more wrestling with locking knobs.
  • Depth of field calculator tells you exactly how much depth of filed you need for your image, forever eliminating excessive stopping down.
  • Features the Rail Clamp 2 for added stability.
  • Metering backs allows you to use film plane metering probes.
  • Format change capability lets you switch between 4×5″, 5×7″, 8×10″ plane film backs and digital adapters.
  • Fully compatible with the proven Sinar System of accessories.
  • Professional photographers have long appreciated the quality and value of the Sinar line of view cameras.
