Arca Swiss Introduces the rotaFoot
The rotaFoot is a new modular accessory for ARCA-SWISS view cameras, and provides the use of mirrorless cameras on the ARCA- SWISS rear function carrier. With rotaFoot you combine the potential of the latest digital camera technology with the outstanding design and precision advantages of the ARCA-SWISS view camera system.
Fitted with a bayonet, the rotaFoot rotating mechanism will make changes from landscape to portrait orientation simple and fast. These two positions are marked by a snap-in detent that may be overridden for a rotation that is not mechanically limited. The bellows remain attached to rotaFoot during handling and changing orientation, therefore a digital sensor will not be exposed to dust and other environmental factors.
The rotaFoot offers a height adjustment feature that provides easy mounting and centering for a variety of mirrorless cameras with your ARCA- SWISS view camera. It will be possible to adjust the height to center a digital camera while keeping rise/fall at zero on the function carrier scale. Height adjustment is only required once and the setting is secured in place with three screws.
For the first version, the following bayonets are available at the moment: Fuji GFX, Sony E, Canon R, Nikon Z, L-mount (Leica, Panasonic and Sigma), Hasselblad X and Leica M. This list is not exhaustive and is only waiting to grow!
Our second version, rotaFoot GFX100, has been designed specifically for the larger FUJI GFX100 and includes a dedicated bayonet mount and front frame extender. Its shape takes into account the lower grip of the GFX100 body, which provides the shortest extensions possible to be compatible with Canon T-SE lenses.
The rotaFoot standard interchangeable bayonet mounts may be purchased separately for additional digital cameras and are easily installed and secured to rotaFoot with four screws.
The rotaFoot is available in different versions, depending on your photographic equipment. We will need the model of your ARCA-SWISS view camera and the mirrorless camera you wish to mount.
The rotaFoot requires the use of one of the four Arca Swiss DSLR bellows with magnetic connection:
