ALPA Focus Stacking Kit FPS/105 float

The ALPA 12 FPS  (Focal Plane Shutter) acts as a shutter module when used together with another ALPA 12 camera, however, it is also an independent camera when combined on its own with a back, a lens, and a suitable adapter.

This flexibility opens up the use of both new, and older lenses from dozens of different optical systems manufacturers – with or without a central shutter and with or without manual or electronic aperture control. 

The ALPA Silex Mk II is the modularized “brain” of the ALPA 12 FPS without the focal plane shutter. This control element shares the numerous functionalities of the ALPA 12 FPS. Together with the ALPA Electronic Lens adapter (ELA), all ALPA Lens Modules can be operated identically on all standard ALPA bodies. It can control the Sinar/Leica/Rodenstock eShutter 125 and 250.  

The ALPA 12 FPS and Silex Mk II open up the field of shift/tilt/swing/stitch in a wide range of variants - and with the corresponding accessories - to a whole new world which had previously hardly been possible to achieve. A continuously expandable firmware controls the whole system in a concept that includes all previous ALPA 12 models, many lenses, and almost all digital backs produced in the past ten years. 

ALPA Focus Stacking Kit FPS/105 float Includes:

  • stacking unit,
  • ALPA 12 FPS,
  • high-end macro lens ALPA Macro Switar 5.6/105 mm (with floating element for 1:4 to 4:1);
  • with accessories and extension tube PRO50 mm for image scales down to 2:1

The ALPA 12 FPS features an integrated vertical metal focal-plane shutter with T, 128 - 1/4000 sec in steps of 1/4, 1/3, 1/2, and 1 EV increments. In addition, a Long Time Exposure mode offers exposure times up to 69 minutes 59 minutes 99/100 seconds in variable steps.

Precision counts even for tiny things. Since physics laws are not suspended even with high resolution digital backs, two essential new components build the basis for successful extreme macro photography: An excellent macro lens and a specific stacking device. ALPA motivated Rodenstock/Qioptiq to make an incredibly high-resolution macro lens fit for classical photography and support Novoflex in developing a precise and reliable stacking platform. 
The solution has a level of precision that is second to none. The slide itself runs on high-precision ball bearing guide rails to avoid any play. The ALPA CASTEL MICRO has a maximum adjustment range of 100mm and a smallest, repeatable step size of 0.2µ (0.0002mm)! The range of step sizes ranges from between 0.2µ and 100mm depending on the motif.
