These were alluded to in my Cambo Factory Tour post and I was wondering about them (from a reviewers stand point). I know that there is fotoman http://fotoman.cc/~sdfgnl5/en/ but I was wondering what other brands are out there offering use with MFDB's?

The Fotoman cameras looks very nice. And the prices are low.
Does anyone have experience with these cameras with digital backs?

I wonder how the accuracy is?

I would assume you have to buy them and then take them someplace to get calibrated / properly machined but I don't know....I may try and contact them to get some samples for review...certainly something no one has done lol (possibly with good reason) but who knows

Horseman sw612d looks interesting

Fotoman dmini

I have tried the fotoman dmini,  it's good value for what you get.
 but you have to calibrate it yourself for your lens. Don't expect it to work straight out of the box. Also be careful to get the right sized cone for your lens.
You can adjust the helicoil for infinity focus by loosening three small screws.

Once calibrated I have enjoyed using it.  Even considering mounting some more lens in cones.
I bought it to get some use out of an old style scheider 28mm digitar.

Think there is any interest to bother trying to review one?

Yes a review would be interesting. There are us amateurs out there that look for good price/performance solutions.

Would love to read a review. I had a Fotoman 45PS a few years ago - very useful camera! I'd love to know how they are these days and how applicable to digital use too.
