The Horseman VCC Pro View Camera Converter gives you an opportunity to add view camera functions to your DSLR. When using this amazing device you can apply awing, tilt, shift, rise, and fall corrections which professionals use for perspective control and selective focusing often required for architecture, still life, fine art, precision copying and commercial photo applications. This amazing full-functioning converter allows photographers to use high-end medium-format and large-format lenses usually required for commercial and fine art photography to achieve professional images while retaining the convenience of a digital SLR.

Recommended Lenses
Even though the VCC Pro will accept a wide variety of professional medium format lenses, it recommends the following superior quality optics which have proven to achieve exceptional results:

  • Rodenstock Rodagon Lenses 60mm - 135mm
  • Hasselblad Lenses
  • Pentax 645 Lenses
  • Mamiya 645 Lenses
  • Other professional-quality lenses 90mm - 210mm
Lens Panels
Horseman provides a variety of Lens Panels which are required to connect your particular lens to the VCC Pro. A lens panel for M39 screw mount is included with this converter. Please be sure to select the corresponding lens board for the lens you are using. Currently there are lens panels available for Rodenstock Rodagon, Hasselblad V-System, Pentax and Mamiya 645, and large-format camera lenses such as the VCC Pro standard size #0, Linhof, and Horseman.
Full Bellows Function
Horseman gives you an opportunity to add full bellows functions turning your DSLR into a full functioning large format view camera with a vast selection of lenses.
Stitching Images Together
The rear standard gives you 30mm vertical and 40mm horizontal movements by ultra precise spindle drive to stitch the images for novel or panoramic effects. Four frame stitching with full frame size CMOS or FX images will achieve extremely high resolution image quality equivalent to that achieved by professional high end digital backs. Inaccuracies between successive pictures are held to an absolute minimum, making post-editing an easy task.
For Close-Up, Macro, and Micro Photography
VCC Pro permits macro, micro or close-up photography without adding supplemental bellows or extension tubes.
For Use with Medium Format Digital Lenses
You'll enjoy using digital lenses that are maximized for high image capture and that produce much larger than normal image circles. Digital lenses are designed to perform to very high standards providing excellent color aberration for digital imaging.
Large Format Functions
The VCC Pro gives you professional photographic functions normally reserved for large format cameras. Now you can use tilt, swing, shift, fall, rise and any combination of these to increase or reduce depth of field, correct or exaggerate perspective distortions even at the widest aperture. Common applications are architectural, commercial, food, tabletop, nature, landscapes, technical and photography in restricted spaces.
Horizontal or Vertical Camera Orientation
As the camera is fixed to a revolving mount, you can easily switch between horizontal and vertical positions with a single turn of a knob. The VCC Pro can be used handheld or mounted on a tripod head.

          Comments about Horseman VCC Pro View Camera Converter with Nikon F Camera Mount:

          I have just purchased this new Horseman VCC unit to replace the older version.

          One major fault with the new Horseman VCC adaptor which I only realized after receiving it is when the camera is in a vertical position you can not attach a flash transmitter to the cameras hot shoe.

          Also you cannot attach a flash PC cord and a Nikon electronic cable release due to the design of the metal arm, which holds the mount. The only way to fix the problem is to attach a Nikon PK-11a extension tube to the mount, which then can give enough space to attach a flash PC cord and Nikon electronic cable release.

          If I had known about the major design fault I would not have purchased the new version. Also the rear shift mechanism is very stiff to the point of removing skin. I have send emails to Horseman USA and the Kenco the Japanese's owner and have not received a reply.

          So if I had not invested money into the new system I would gladly have keeped the Horseman I all ready owned.

                Hello,I have just purchased the new Horseman VCC unit to replace the one I am selling. The reason I am selling the old unit is because I have sold all of my medium format equipment. One major fault with the new Horseman VCC adaptor which I only realized after receiving it is when the camera is in a vertical position you can not attach a flash transmitter to the cameras hot shoe. Also you cannot attach a flash PC cord and a Nikon electronic cable release due to the the design of the metal arm which holds the mount. The only way to fix the problem is to attach a Nikon PK-11a extension tube to the mount which then can give enough space to attach a flash PC cord and Nikon electronic cable release. If I had known about the major design fault I would not have purchased the new version. Also the rear shift mechanism is very stiff to the point of removing skin. I have send emails to Horseman USA and the Kenco the Japanese's owner and have not received a reply.So if I had not invested money into the new system I would gladly have keeped the Horseman I am selling as I believe it to be more user friendly.
