The QuadStitch 4x5 View Camera Sliding Back Adapter

Cat# KG-QUAD - $2997.00

The Kapture Group QuadStitch sliding back adapter is the most versatile and user friendly 4 by 5 stitching back available. Color coded drop-in masks for the 8 framing options correspond to color coded rotating stops. The smooth sliding and cranking action of the QuadStitch eliminates potential camera movement between captures for pixel perfect stitches every time.

Note: Photoshop CS3 and above allows photomerge (stitching) to be preformed in 16 bit with fantastic results.

Once obsolete wide-angle view camera lenses regain their wide-angle field of view and normal focal length lenses no longer act as strictly telephoto. Lens designs to cover 4 by 5 film now create digital images up to 9200 by 6906 pixels using a 22 MP digital back. Digital backs with 39 MP and larger sensors are also supported for even larger file sizes. All current chip sizes are supported and a custom set of masks will be provided for your specific digital back.

Focal length lenses down to 75mm mounted on a standard recessed lens board can be used for architectural or tabletop photography. Shorter lenses may also be used with deeper recessed len boards available from Kapture Group.

The QuadStitch is available for Hasselblad V, Hasselblad H (shown below), Sinar Hy6 and Leaf AFi, Mamiya 645AFD, PhaseOne 645AF/DF and Contax 645 mount digital backs.
