With the release of its 10 limited edition ALPA 12 XY, Alpa closes a chapter on yet another amazing camera. Created in 2006 the camera has become a favorite to architectural, automotive and landscape photographers.
“We had to develop a stable camera, being also able to rise and fall the front at the same time”, ALPA-Co-Owner André Oldani remembers. “All the manipulations, including stitching and shifting, had to be possible without taking the camera off the tripod.”… “It was probably the first camera with this wide but still highly precise range of settings”, Oldani says. “And weight was no real issue back then. But now we have to follow the general trends toward smaller and lighter cameras.”
