The iconic ALPA without moving front. So well thought out that it has hardly had to be changed since 1998. For hand-held and tripod based work.
One ALPA 12 model has found special favor with those who want to concentrate on the absolutely essential. It is even used under the hard conditions war reporters often find themselves in. It is the ALPA 12 WA (Wide Angle). Its main qualities include a reduction to what is absolutely necessary, the great sturdiness this requires and optimum handling thanks to the two hand grips. MAGNUM members count among its users and NEWSWEEK titles as its results. The ALPA 12 WA is naturally also capable of full integration in the modular ALPA 12 camera platform. The user is thus able, for example, to return from a project in a tropical rain forest using a rollfilm back and without any need for electric power and can then almost immediately use the same camera with a digital back for a landscape photography commission. A careful combination of equipment will also allow him or her to do all this using exactly the same lenses and many identical accessories. This particularly exemplifies the sense and the purpose of the integrated ALPA 12 platform.
