• Compact and lightweight construction ideal for backpack photographers who would otherwise need to transport much heavier gear to photograph large vistas
• Connects a low cost camera sensor with a medium format lens for astonishing medium format photography at a fraction of the normal price
• Preview the composed image before taking the first shot with the built in Composition Screen
• Mount a modern camera sensor onto 4x5 equipment using the RhinoCam system (the tripod mount must first be removed)
• Multiple exposures are in a linear array, perfect for flat-stitching to reduce distortion errors inherent in spherical stitching
• When the user upgrades their camera, the RhinoCam delivers even higher quality pictures
The RhinoCam is a camera system that, for the first time in the digital age, puts the power of a full-size 6x6 medium format back into the hands of virtually any photographer. Utilizing the more affordable mirrorless camera sensors, RhinoCam enables photographers at any level to capture the dramatic detail and sharpness only available with a sensor three times larger than even a high-end full-frame 35mm sensor. The first release from Fotodiox’s new Vizelex line of premium high-end camera systems and adapaters, the RhinoCam delivers stunning 140+ megapixel images while offering photographers their choice of low-cost sensor options and classic lenses.
Capable of creating the dramatic panoramic and full 6x6 medium format images previously reserved for photographers working with expensive medium format back cameras, RhinoCam is ideal for landscape, commercial and architectural photographers seeking remarkably high resolution at a fraction of the cost. Using an interchangeable lens mount, RhinoCam couples a medium format lenses with the Canon EOS M (EF-M) Camera. The built-in composition screen enables photographers to preview the composed shot. The lens remains firmly in place while the RhinoCam’s moving platform positions the sensor for multiple precisely-positioned exposures.
RhinoCam offers a cost-effective alternative to full size medium format back options which cost 20 to 30 times more than more 35mm digital cameras. This innovative system makes it possible for photographers to achieve the high quality resolution, detail and sharpness found in images taken with medium format cameras, but for under $1,000.
After the capture process, it takes seconds to merge the multiple exposures into one larger image using automated stitching functionality built into recent versions of Adobe® Photoshop® and other software offerings. Rhino Cam images are finalized using the more accurate flat stitching method, avoiding the perspective errors and curvilinear distortion present in images joined via spherical stitching often found with motorized systems that move both camera body and lens. The result is a panorama or 645 medium format photograph that is well over four times the normal resolution of a high-end full-frame 35mm camera sensor.

• Phase One M645 lenses will not fit this adapter, only older Mamiya M645 lenses will fit properly.
• This is a manual adapter, so lens functions that rely on electronic communication with the camera body (autofocus, AE metering, image stabilization, etc.) will be disrupted.
• Some cameras need to be set a certain way to work with our adapters or you may get a message such as 'Error Lens Not Attached - Check lens'. Please check the support articles on the Fotodiox Knowledge Base for possible solutions on a variety of camera brands.
• 'Focus-By-Wire' lenses (such as Canon's STM or Nikons AF-P) requires power to engage the manual focus rings on the lens, since manual lens mount adapters do not power the lens, those lenses will not be able to focus.
• Set your exposure manually or meter using your camera's Aperture Priority (stop-down) mode.
• If your lens does not have a manual aperture control ring, the lens aperture will revert to its default position, which depending on the lens is either stopped down to its largest f-stop or opened up to its smallest f-stop.
• To determine what the new 'Crop Factor' or 'Equivalent Focal Length' of the lens when used on your camera will be, please check the Fotodiox Knowledge Base article.
