The Sinar x is a cost-efficient alternative to the top-of-the-line p2 model, performing all the functions with equal perfection but deliberately dispensing with some of the operating amenities, The TTL Metering Back for instance, is not included in the basic outfit, but it remains an option that can be added later. The feature of adapting to formats larger that 4x5 was also intentionally foregone on the Sinar x camera, thus contributing greatly to the cost reduction, as did the elimination of a digital adapter connection for a digital back with a CCD array (never-the-less, the x can be used with a digital scan back). The Sinar x also does not feature the zero detent "click-stops" of the P2 model. The Sinar x still retains the most integral and unique features of a Sinar, such as the asymmetrical swing/tilt capabilities, among others, making it an outstanding value. The Sinar x provides the photographer with the best features of a top of the line monorail camera at a reasonable price.
Asymmetric tilts and swings - completely yaw-free.
All movements are gear driven and on the right side of the camera.
Two Point Focusing System helps to determine the correct degree of swings and tilts.
