Have you guys seen these new cheap adapters claiming to let you mount Hasselblad V lenses on H mount bodies? It seems like a knock off version of the actual Hasselblad adapter that allows you to do this. Looking at the pictures and description, it shows no way to cock the lens, or for the lens or body to sync up or trigger in anyway, am I just missing something?

this is the item I am talking about. Scam or legit?

That looks as sophisticated as the adapter for V series glass to Sony Nex I just paid 52 for (Fotodiox) which is actually well made and tight fit.

I can't see how it would possibly work, as you say no way to cock the shutter let alone fire it!
