sinar p3

The Sinar p3 camera is the perfect tool for every digital photographer: High precision, self-locking drives and handiness of the operating elements – like the Sinar p2 -, however, thanks to its smaller size, its adjustment for the use of the Sinarback digital backs and its integrated cabling, the Sinar p3 is the ideal camera for digital photography.

Optimized for Digital Photography

The new fine focus feature of the Sinar p3-df offers perfect and precise focusing with amazing high-end digital studio photography convenience. Fine focus accuracy improved by 30%.

Optimized for Digital Input

Digital imaging technology has revolutionized photography. Compared to conventional film of the same size, small sensor surfaces can record far more image information. Yet the creative fundamentals of photography have not changed. In view camera photography especially, this includes the capability of achieving desired pictorial effects with the judicious positioning of planes of sharpness and with optical perspective correction. Sinar has been a leader in the manufacture of view cameras for more than 50 years and is proud to have more than 10 years of experience as the leading supplier of high-end digital cameras.

Man as the measure of things

Sinar has succeeded in optimally combining the precision of the Sinar p line of cameras with the digital input of Sinarback digital backs. Thanks to a coupling frame that is 30% smaller, the imaging surfaces of Sinarback digital backs are optimally suited for swings and tilts. The self-locking drives allow highly precise focusing – the camera accurately maintains the settings. The human hand served as the reference guide for the size, shape and handiness of the operating elements, for smooth and precise work even in darkened rooms. Practical new ergonomic locks allow easy and quick changing of lenses, bellows and digital backs by just pressing them with a finger. Visual design elements give the Sinar p3 a trendy appearance.

Handy and only a single cable

The fully compatible Sinar Digital System allows the attachment of all Sinarback digital backs to the new camera with only one cable for data transmission and power supply. The Sinar p3 features integrated electrical couplings that directly connect the digital back with the shutter, thus reducing distracting cables at the camera to a minimum.

Sinaron Digital CMV lenses

– with electronic between-the-lens shutter
The Sinaron Digital CMV Lens with an electronically controlled between-the-lens shutter is mounted on a lens board with 100 mm sides. This shutter makes absolutely vibration-free exposures possible as needed for Multishot with perfect colors (4-shot mode) or for the highest detail resolution (16-shot mode). The new between-the-lens shutter is controlled by the Sinar CaptureShop™ software. Therefore, no additional or separate controlling device is needed for the lenses.

Practical accessories

The adjustment settings and ranges of the new Sinar p3 view camera are optimized for use with Sinarback digital backs. The asymmetric swing and tilt axes can be displayed in the live image of the Sinar CaptureShop™, allowing an easy and pixel-accurate positioning of the plane of sharpness. In addition, an accessory standard, tailored to the size and to the adjustment range, is available for bellows extensions or for the use of a bellows as a lens hood.

The Sinar p3 is fully integrated into Sinar modular system. This means that the 4×5” carrier frame and digital accessories of the Sinar p2 can be attached to the Sinar p3 by means of a tapered bellows and effortless ease. This also applies to the use of Sinar digital back adapters as well as the Sinar Macroscan for greatly increased resolution (up to 144 million pixels) and a greater digital imaging area (up to 6×6 cm). It also applies to the use of a Sinar p3 for chemical photography with roll film holders and sheet film up to 4×5”.
