ALPA Classic SWA (Shift Wide Angle)
Added to basket!

The ALPA 12 SWA represents an interesting option in particular for architectural but also for landscape photography. Shift is integrated into the camera (in the most frequently used direction of vertically upward).
If the ALPA 12 SWA is turned on its head, downward shift is achieved. This rotation can be done by hand or using an additional adapter on a tripod SEE HERE . When digital backs are used, the same effect can be achieved by a simple swapping of the lens with the back. This allows to achieve our design goals of reliability, precision, versatility and simplicity in equal measure.
