Hejnar Introduces SCV Panorama Package 2018 Updated with New Rails

Hejnar SCV Panorama Package 2018 with opt. vertical rotator.

Old readers may remember my article and my endeavor to Create Multi Row Panorama Head Ver. II back in November of 2011. Nonetheless, this was already an improvement of an earlier version introduced one year earlier in November 2010. At that time there were very few modular and Arca-Swiss compatible multi-row Panoramic heads around.
Plus the ones that existed were quite expensive, so there was room for a modular solution that would be easy to transform into some other device, using the same rails.

Hejnar Photo D027 QR Plate Compatible with Fujifilm X-T20 Update

Hejnar Photo D027 QR Plate on Fujifilm X-T20 camera

It's been a long time since Hejnar Photo has introduced the D027 Arca Style Quick Release plate. It was originally introduced in 2014 to cover the fixed lens Finepix models designated Dedicated D027 QR Plate for Fuji X100/S.

What is interesting though, is that after thorough testing it is declared directly compatible with the newer Fujifilm X-T20 which seems to share the same smaller base footprint.

New Z Shape Foot for Metabones 2nd Gen Adapters from Hejnar Photo

Hejnar Photo Z shape foot w/ 4" rail for Metabones overview

Metabones® Adapters are getting more and more popular with Interchangeable Lens Compact Cameras, since users are able to use their existing lens models coming from manufacturers like Canon and Nikon, with proven high standards.

As I have mentioned in the New Feet and Extenders for Metabones Adapter from Hejnar Photo article, a couple of years ago, current Metabones adapter models do feature a tripod mounting foot, some conforming to an Arca-compatible style. However, there are still some restrictions and limitations faced when users want to combine them with larger diameter lenses, Tilt-Shift lenses  or even a Battery Grip.
