HorsemanHorseman SW-D2 Pro super wide angle camera : Horseman shows the SW-D2 Pro, a super wide angle camera, the LD Pro, a high-end camera back accessory for adding bellows functions, and the Horseman 3D Stereo Camera at Photokina. The Horseman will highlight three new products at Photokina this week, including the SW-D2 Pro super wide angle camera, the LD Pro high-end camera back, and the Horseman 3D stereo camera. The Horseman SW-D2 Pro is a higher-end version of the SWD large format digital camera announced earlier this year. The Horseman SW-D2 Pro will feature additional mount compatibility for the SWD interchangeable digital back system, plus some new design improvements that open new dimensions for large format digital photography.

In addition to the SW-D2 Pro, Horseman will also show the LD Pro, a high-end camera back accessory that is equipped with a slide-back mechanism to allow mounting of a high-end camera back to give full bellows functions, and allow you to convert the LD into a 4x5-inch film camera. The LD Pro takes high-end digital backs, such as Phase One, Leaf, Imacon and Sinar. For professionals, the ability to manipulate camera movement can make all the difference in sharpness and photo quality.

Horseman LD Pro high end camera back - Depth of field
The Horseman LD Pro allows users to easily control depth of field, distortion, and lateral shift or being able to switch portrait/landscape with one-touch operation. The LD Pro has a four-way inset system for switching. It also has interchangeable camera mount system, which includes Hasselblad “V,” Hasselblad “H” and Mamiya 645 plates. Among the design improvements for the SWD-2 Pro, is the moving of the tripod base from the center block of the body to the front body.

This means lateral shift and rise/fall can be applied while keeping the camera on the tripod head because the front part (lens side) can be mounted on the tripod head and it gives the rear part (film side) freedom to move up/down and right/left for stitching without changing the image composition. The SW-D 2 Pro is the only super wide angle camera that can do this. With its unique interchangeable system, the SWD series is now compatible not only with the Hasselblad “V” mount, but also Hasselblad “H” and Mamiya 645 mounts.

Horseman 3D Stereo camera - Studio photographers
The Horseman 3D stereo camera, which began shipping late last month, will also be shown. The Horseman 3D gives portrait studio photographers stereo photography for events like weddings, commemorative photos of kids, and pet photography. The Horseman 3D is also expected to find a wide field of applications in areas such as scientific criminal investigation by police and recording in academic research.
