Thanks for your suggestions. I'm currently using a Sinar rig but I thought a slightly smaller format would be less cumbersome for shooting negs with digital camera. I'd hate to have to take a grinder to this little jewel. One thing I really like about it is the film copying unit with the flip back diffuser that has rise/fall. It appears that this bellows set is identical to the Contax version which sells for $$$ on ebay. I'll take your suggestion and head over to the Fotodiox site.

I'm glad I could help.

Just to be clear, I was suggesting grinding out the adapter, not the original part. =^0

What happened?

Enquiring minds want to know. smiley

Seeing as you are already familiar with a Sinar rig, your eyes might have glazed over for the rest of what I had written. I wouldn't blame you, since what you already have is much more flexible, albeit massive.

If you haven't discovered it yet, there was indeed someone very interested in this.

Thanks for your interest. I was unable to release the camera mount from the bellows as you suggested nor was I able to locate a P-adapter (though one was part of a larger package being sold on ebay) before I left Florida for the EU for a few months. You're right about the Sinar rig being massive but mounting the Sony a900 was made easier when I was able to mount it to a Sinar lens board using a simple T-mount and an "M48 to M42 48mm - 42mm male-to-male coupling Ring Adapter for Filters" found on ebay (after grinding a few mm off the hole in the board) as a retaining ring. I'm leaning towards using a 24MP Sony aps-c sensor camera with Live View as the throat of the FF camera and adapter create slight vignetting. I'll be back in Florida in October at which time I'll reassess.

This is a slow-motion conversation, so I hope you don't mind if I take my time with each response. 8^)

After a little more research, I have learned that the macro rail which I own is representative of later versions. Please forgive my ignorance. Although I have not had one literally in my hands, it appears that earlier versions had cast metal standards (I assume aluminium), which is quite different from the extruded metal with modular fittings like the one which I own that became available after the introduction of the M645.
