The RhinoCam is a camera systemthat, for the first time in the digital age, puts the power of afull-size 645 medium format back into the hands of virtually anyphotographer. Utilizing the Sony NEX camera sensor, RhinoCamenables photographers at any level to capture the dramatic detailand sharpness only available with a sensor three times larger thaneven a high-end full-frame 35mm sensor. The first release fromFotodiox's new Vizelex line of premium high-end camera systems andadapters, the RhinoCam delivers stunning 140+ megapixel imageswhile offering photographers their choice of low-cost sensoroptions and classic lenses.

Capable of creating the dramaticpanoramic and full 645 medium format images previously reserved forphotographers working with expensive medium format back cameras,RhinoCam is ideal for landscape, commercial and architecturalphotographers seeking remarkably high resolution at a fraction ofthe cost. Via an interchangeable lens mount, RhinoCam coupleseither a Pentax 645, Mamiya 645, or Hasselblad V medium format lenswith a Sony NEX series camera. The built-in Composition Screenenables photographers to preview the composed shot. The lensremains firmly in place while the RhinoCam's moving platformpositions the NEX sensor for multiple precisely-positionedexposures. RhinoCam also mounts directly onto a 4x5 Graflock boardto open up additional possibilities with wider range of lenses,tilt shifts, bellows systems and more.

vrc-crop-demo-4up.jpg"RhinoCam offers acost-effective alternative to full size medium format back optionswhich cost 20 to 30 times more than the Sony NEX," said DrewStrickland, vice president of marketing for Fotodiox. "Thisinnovative system makes it possible for photographers to achievethe high quality resolution, detail and sharpness found in imagestaken with medium format cameras, but for under $1,000."

After the capture process, ittakes seconds to merge the multiple exposures into one largerimages using automated stitching functionality built into recentversions of Adobe® Photoshop® and other software offerings.RhinoCam images are finalized using the more accurate flatstitching method, avoiding the perspective errors and curvilineardistortion present in images joined via spherical stitching oftenfound with motorized systems that move both camera body and lens.The result is a panorama or 645 medium format photograph that iswell over four times the normal resolution of a high-end full-frame35mm camera sensor. The finished result using a Sony NEX-7 is a140+ megapixel image with incredible detail andsharpness.
