Cat. No. Used-Kapture-Hy6-X-Act2
This is a device that allows you to mount a digital back and a viewfinder onto the X-Act2 and quickly switch between the viewfinder for composing the image and the digital back for capturing the image without changing focus. Kapture group is one of the better known manufacturers of sliding backs. The viewfinder is a ground glass screen with a base that accepts Hasselblad V style prisms and lupes (not supplied but available separately). The Hy6 mounting adapter plate clips onto your back quickly and then you can snap in the assembly into the sliding back in seconds. This way you can move your back between your Hy6 and the X-Act2 in just a minute or less.
The whole assembly has seen some use and some cosmetic signs of wear are visible, and there is a small crack in one of the corners of the ground glass which does not affect the use. This unit functions well and slides smoothly from side to side with no slop or play. The Hy6 back is held in securely. These are hard to find with the Hy6 Mount. It's possible to change the mount with different adapter plates available from Keith at Kapture Group.
