    Newton Bracket and Bronica ETRSI - docs

    Help! I find myself in the possession of a second hand Newton Bracket that supposedly can accomodate my ETRSI. I believe the bracket is the DITPR200 model. It's a complicated affair and I'm having trouble figuring out how to fit it to the camera. Does anyone know where I can find documentation for this bracket?

    I glanced at the B&H website. The only thing that jumps out at me is

    "DITPR200: Bronica ETRS, Si with speed grip or new small motor"

    I don't know if that rules out the body without the speed grip or latest motor.

    From looking at the picture it just looks like one part has a tripod mount and the other would attach to the camera. Is it more complicated then that?

    I decided to check with the man who would know best - Robert Newton himself. I emailed him through a link at his website. He asked me a question or two, emailed me a picture, and after some trial and error, I've figured it out. There quite a few places on the bracket that a hex key can be used for set up and adjustment. Its was a little confusing at first, but now I see the logic in how the bracket was designed. Very clever actually.

    Anyhow, thanks for taking the time to reply.
