    Default Horseman DigiFlex II -anyone?

    Does anyone have any experience with the Digiflex II?

    Looks very tempting, Nikon and hassy back mounts, looking good!

    My handling of this particular model is limited to mounting it on the tripod, changing the lens on it, occasionally tripping the shutter for the main photographer. What I know though : good solid body, though a bit hefty and unwieldy than your normal SLR, when mounted with lens and digi-back. i guess they carried the large format mentality over to the digiflex. limited shutter speeds...if you want any slower than 1s, you got to manually time your shutter, or get a separate 'long exposure device'. very good plus point: nikon mount (no auto-focus support). wide range of quality nikkors to choose from, definitely cheaper than using medium or large format lens for equivalent angle of view.

    very small viewfinder. very hard to focus with its small spilt screen focusing screen. It has a stupid shape that is difficult to handle.

    Absence of a hot shoe. the pc socket always fail me... dunno if it is design flaw.

    I hate it
