Arca-Swiss has announced the Rm2d, a precision medium-format camera, which is smaller and lighter than the critically acclaimed Rm3d. Marketed as the camera for high-resolution hand-held photography, the Arca-Swiss Rm2d can take film magazines as well as digital backs, and is compatible with Arca-Swiss R-mount lenses ranging from 23mm to 250mm. The precision of the focusing device allows for repeatable settings with 15 micron accuracy (when mounted on a tripod, of course), and the camera also boasts a shift functionality that makes it well suited to architectural photography. Weighing in at a mera 700 grams without a lens or a film magazine / digital back, the Arca-Swiss Rm2d is available at a price of €3,090 + VAT.
Get a grip on Reality - ARCA-SWISS Rm2d
The camera for architectural, travel, portrait and landscape photography.
Functional and precise yet light, efficient and easy to handle.
ARCA-SWISS has expanded its R-line of precision medium format cameras with the ARCASWISS Rm2d, a smaller, lighter version. The Rm2d is the camera for high resolution hand held photography, both digital as well as analog.
This new camera’s features - its functionality and its extraordinary compactness and light weight - make it ideal for architectural and travel photography as well as photo journalism. It has the same clear design that won the Rm3d an acclaimed international design award. The positioning and design of the hand grips allow you to go swiftly from portrait to landscape format.
The Rm2d, like all of the ARCA-SWISS R cameras, has its own AIP (All In Plane) vertical shift in the focal plane. This means no absurd mounts are necessary for stitching. The manual horizontal shift of ± 15mm makes quick stitching possible: the vertical shift of +20/-10mm takes place micrometrically.
The line of lenses with ARCA-SWISS R mounts is available in focal lengths from 23mm-250mm. The precision of the focusing device allows for repeatable settings with 15 micron accuracy. Composing shots is easy with its zoom viewfinder system which can be used with various focal lengths. Its also displays the various shifts.
The camera is compatible with all leading digital and film backs. The R-line’s system compatibility ranges from the ARCA-SWISS R lens mount to the extensive assortment of ARCA-SWISS accessories.
