ALPA ALPAGON 5.6/23 mm SB17 for Aperture Mount

If you would like to add tilt or swing to your 23 HR-S lens, you can now do so!

The ALPA ALPAGON 5.6/23 mm is now officially available as a Short Barrel 17 lens with an aperture mount. This version with a recessed lensboard was one of the last wishes of Alpa’s late Chinese partner Fred Zhou. In his memory, Alpa first offered this version exclusively for partners in Beijing. Now Alpa offers this special version for all partners and customers, worldwide. The short-barrel version is fully integrated into the ALPA world.

  • Version for aperture mount (Copal 0 feasible but not recommended)
  • Integrated ALPA HPF ring with meter and feet scale
  • Integrated rear lens protection against mechanical damage

Alpa is working on a version optimized for use with X-Shutter and Copal 0. This version is expected in Q3 2021.

New ALPA HAA Mk II adjustable digital back adapter

A new, better fitting Hasselblad V adapter, perfect for your 907X!

NEW – ALPA ALPAGON 5.6/23 mm SB17 for Aperture Mount

The back-mount of the Hasselblad V cameras is, or was, probably the most widespread connection for accessories and digital backs in the world. This fact made it necessary for adapters to be manufactured so that they were compatible with as many accessories as possible. One consequence of this compatibility was their often less than perfect fit with a tad of radial play. Nothing serious, but not ALPA-like.

Hasselblad has now addressed this problem with the 907x and the CFV II 50c by introducing a locking pin. Alpa’s latest adapter type HAA in version Mk II also has this pin, which guarantees an optimal fit. For older digital backs, the user can remove this pin. 


  • New, removable locking pin for optimal fit with Hasselblad CFV II 50 digital backs
  • Improved inner reflex coating

This adapter is immediately available.

New ALPA XF / MA645 Mk V adjustable digital back adapter

You can now adjust your Alpa adapter for Phase One for multiple digital back generations.

The only constant in life is change. Alpa has revived the elaborate AB adapter to compensate for the occasional mechanical differences between individual back generations. This adapter allows the lower adapter hinge/bracket to be shimmed. The Mk V version of Alpa’s digital back adapter for XF (IQ3 and IQ4) comes with mini-shims that allow individual adjustment to each back. 


  • Shimable lower back hinge/bracket for a perfect fit
  • Improved inner reflex coating
  • Unified version for IQ3 & IQ4 digital backs from Phase One
