The Mamya 645 Lens Adapter for Vizelex Rhinocam from FotodioX is capable of creating the dramatic panoramic and full 645 medium format images previously reserved for photographers working with expensive medium format back cameras. It is suitable for landscape, commercial, and architectural photographers. With an interchangeable lens mount, RhinoCam couples with a Mamiya 645 medium format lens with a Sony NEX series camera. The built-in composition screen enables photographers to preview the composed shot.
RhinoCam also mounts directly onto a 4 x 5 board to open up additional possibilities with wider angle lenses, tilt shifts, bellows systems, and more. After the capture process, it takes seconds to merge the multiple exposures into one larger image using automated stitching functionality built into recent versions of Adobe Photoshop and other software offerings. RhinoCam images are finalized using the more accurate flat stitching method, avoiding the perspective errors and curvilinear distortion present in images joined via spherical stitching (often found with motorized systems that move both camera body and lens). The result is a panorama or 645 medium format photograph that is well over four times the normal resolution of a high-end full-frame 35mm camera sensor.
