Electronically controlled, with fast focal plane shutter (up to 1/4000 sec) and exceptionally versatile.
The ALPA 12 FPS is probably the most astounding mirrorless medium-format camera for digital backs. It offers an integrated and electronically controlled focal-plane shutter, runs with extremely low vibrations, and has the fastest exposure time of 1/4000 sec. It is also possible to use mechanical and electronic leaf shutters – installed in the lens – for remarkably fast flash synchronization speed. This modularity opens up a whole range of lenses, from the brand new to the tried and tested, of different manufacture and design, to be used with the ALPA 12 FPS, thus allowing the direct use of the respective properties specific characters of the individual optics. A continually growing selection of ALPA precision adapters with and without adjustment mechanisms allows the FPS in the most varied photographic areas. A single-camera can now be used at the highest possible level for taking situations from macro to landscape, from repro to architecture, or from photo-reportage to studio work.
The ALPA 12 FPS features other exceptional properties and features, which may be unique on their own or in combination. These features include electronic aperture control, remote control, broad range exposure bracketing, multiple exposures, simple user interface. The flexible programmability allows a continuous expansion of functions through uploadable firmware and much more. Only a short time ago, photographers could only dream of a camera with these options – this dream has become a reality with the ALPA 12 FPS.
