    NEW FOTOMAN 45 SPS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YEAH!

    Hello

    Bought a new fotoman 45 sps... and it´s an amazing piece, really well made and a good value.

    But... I would like to see a second hot shoe on the camera... for the rangefinder... or meter...

    i saw one double shoe from voigtlander($$$$$$$$$) and several on #bay (mainly for video use) and maybe to tall (increasing paralax), do you have any ideas????

    Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Snap, I have one too, bought in the past couple of months. Excellent camera, and like you say, fantastic value.

    For hotshoes, how about something like this:

    I expect you could find one with 3 mounts, one for finder, meter, and rangefinder. You could just glue one in the middle for the finder if you wanted, it's just a $10 part.

    Well

    i have been looking at these, they are too tall, i don´t want them to be so far apart from the original shoe... voigtlander sounded better... i think i will make one out of spare parts and some aluminium bits...

    Thanks!!!!!!!!!

    One thing... What lenses are you using? i just have the 75mm cone and lens for now... i will try to work with that, after i might buy other cones... i´m after a 125mm...

    cheers

    If you have a 75mm, then a 110/120 would be a good one. You are limited to up to 150, so if you a set of 3, you can have 75/110/150, or if you limit to 2, 75/135 or 75/150.

    I have a 90/135/150 for my Goersi 45ps with the idea that if I take 2 cones, I would take 90 and 150, but if I only take one, I would take the 135.

    Are you sure that is a hot shoe? It looks like it would be a cold shoe to me. You would sync flash via the PC port on the shutter.

    It looks like the left side grip has a threaded mount to install a second cold shoe. Or if you want it on the top of the body you could glue one on or tap a thread.
