Sinar Press Release
Sinar eShutter Introductory Promotion
A new electronic shutter sets new standards in professional photography
Sinar Photography AG, headquartered in Switzerland, develops and manufactures a new electronic shutter system for professional photography. First deliveries began a few weeks ago and the new shutter is available for actual product demonstrations at our distribution partners around the world.
Interest in this revolutionary new shutter in the field of professional photography has been intense ever since its announcement. This is largely due to the fact that the Sinar eShutter solution constitutes an open system that can be used with different camera platforms and in conjunction with all digital backs. Because of the compact size of the new shutter, it is now possible to build the lenses into recessed tubes. This establishes Sinar as the only supplier that offers an electronic shutter that can be used for wide-angle photography with a view camera!
The most important features of the Sinar eShutter are the following:
- Renowned Swiss quality – designed and manufactured at Sinar in Switzerland
- Fastest shutter speeds: up to 1/125 second
- Wide-angle photography with view cameras is now possible
- The 7-blade iris diaphragm provides a nearly circular aperture
- Modern components and electronics permit a very compact and light-weight construction
- Can be built into diverse camera platforms
- Conversion of existing O-size lenses, including Schneider and Rollei lenses
- Complete functionality with all brands of digital backs
- Control via PC or Mac – as well as remote control via Apple iPhone, iPad or iPod touch
