Sinarback eXact...

12 to 192 MP digital back !

Also available in CTM version with clear glass filter.
The new Sinarback eXact enhances Sinar’s existing digital back technology by adding additional features—whilst simultaneously preserving their uncompromising dedication to producing high-quality digital capture devices that are reliable and long-lasting tools for use in Professional Imaging.

The Sinarback eXact is Sinar’s new flagship model and offers the superb image quality that all Sinarbacks are famous for, whilst adding new features over previous models.

The Sinarback eXact’s feature-list adds four additional shooting modes. One of which is the new XL 16-Shot mode. This 192 MP mode uses micro scanning to increase the sensor’s spatial resolution and to provide full colour sampling for each and every half-pixel step. The process provides fully sampled—and thus true and accurate colours—and this in turn produces images with greater contour sharpness over what’s possible via any single-shot method of capture. To experience just how stunning and rich in detail Sinarback eXact images can be, you really must see the images for yourself.

Based on the legendary 16-shot technology from former Sinar digital backs—the micro-scanning function has been significantly refined for use with the new Sinarback eXact.

Sinarback eXact = multiple shooting modes...

modesAs you can see in the table, there are two XL modes where the back shoots an effective 192 MP sensor.

There's the XL 4-shot mode, which provides 192 MP ‘single-shot quality’ with interpolated colours—and there's the XL 16-shot mode as was mentioned previously. The new Sinarback eXact sets new image-quality standards thanks to the integrity of the information sampled and this of course ideally suits applications where larger file sizes and/or highest quality/colour-accuracy is mandatory. But wait, there’s more to the new Sinarback eXact...

Sinarback eXact: All in One?
When biggest may not be best for your workflow...
In recent years, there's been an ever-increasing upward trend in the pixel density of MFD sensors. However, in some instances of production, not only Sinar, but their clients too, have become acutely aware of the post-production burden when producing images that are way too large for the purpose at hand.

Less is more?
Sinar has added two shooting modes which effectively reduce the effective pixel count of the sensor—thus reducing overall file size—all without affecting image quality for the smaller file-sizes produced. This is ideal in circumstances where the need for more pixels is outweighed by the intended purpose of the image. So besides the regular capturing modes—one and four-shot modes with 48 MP—the Sinarback eXact enables you to render smaller 12 MP and 21 MP one-shot images. These features precisely meet the strong demand from Sinar’s clients, which allow the Photographer to capture smaller file-sizes when the need arises. And this adds versatility making the Sinarback eXact the perfect capture device for all types of professional high-end studio photography and for use in Heritage Recording, Archiving and Art Reproduction tasks.

Quality First
The Sinarback eVolution75/86 H and now the new model Sinarback eXact all inherit Sinar's uncompromising commitment to the highest standards in image quality. One important example for all multi shot Sinarbacks is that Sinar refrained from adding any noise or heat-producing components such as a Display, Battery or any Internal Memory. These are well-known sources of heat and without them; the image quality obtained is frankly better. And finally—a Sinarback device lasts longer, is more stable and consistent shot-to-shot because it employs both Active and Passive cooling—and a cooler sensor and electronic components will last longer—thereby protecting your investment for many years to come.

Sinarback eXact is 100% compatible with Sinarback eVolution75/86 H. It can be used with existing adapter kits and other Sinar accessories. For best results we recommend the use of the Sinaron HR lenses.

digital back
Also available in CTM version with clear glass filter.
Sinar Multi-shot products meet the highest quality demands in professional photography without compromise.

When designing a back, Sinar's goals are to achieve a harmonious balance between the many physical and technical challenges involved. The result? Capture devices made to exacting levels of precision which are perfectly tailored to the demanding tasks at hand.

And this no-compromise approach is precisely what Sinar offers as complete solutions.

Sinarback eVolution86 H
With 48.8 million pixels resolution, it not only guarantees optimal picture quality and color reproduction, but also allows you to take full advantage of proven efficiency and production cost-savings offered by Sinar's expertise in digital back design and workflow optimisation.

The Sinarback eVolution86 H has the same design concept as the eVolution75 H, where heat-generating components such as the display, internal memory and CF card hardware are removed entirely. The benefit is superior capture speed and image quality. And because there's no display screen, there's no need to make shoot-presets on the back as this has been handed over to the CaptureShop application to be managed in software.

The back has a FireWire 800 port connection (IEEE 1394B) between digital back and computer. This is state-of-the-art for digital data exchange and not only makes speed of capturing faster, but also effectively speeds up the device's Live Image display which is used for composing and focusing the image on the computer monitor. Sinar's hardware-based Live Image quality is the industry's best—you must see it to believe just how good it can be!

Sinarback eVolution series backs feature a dual Peltier + Fan cooling system. And this ensures the same quality from one end of the day to the other. Even when things hot up during day-long or double-shift studio sessions. And this also impacts positively towards a prolonged service life, adding value to protect your investment, long after the decision to purchase the Sinarback was made.

Whether using 4-shot or 1-shot modes, the exported 16-bit TIF file- size is ~288 MB.
In 1-shot mode, the Sinarback eVolution86 H has a RAW file size of 105 MB. ( 288 MB as a 16-bit TIF)

The real difference is in how colours in the the two modes are sampled...
In 4-shot mode, thanks to controlled piezo-electric shifting of the Bayer array, there's a significant increase in the image's colour resolution and it's this which leads to outstanding image quality.

Colour sampling with four-shot MS is:
R = 100% G = 200% B = 100%

As opposed to one-shot sampling of:
R = 25% G = 50% B = 25%

One of the major benefits of shooting with a multi-shot back over a one-shot back is a significant improvement to the contour sharpness of the image. This is especially evident when using HR lenses. Fine structures in the image are beautifully resolved with clear demarcation of detail and colours around contours. And colours are cleaner. The rendition and accuracy of colours and micro-detail is unparalled in a multi-shot image. And finally, 4-shot mode provides superior neutrals which are distincly more uniform than their 1-shot mode counterpart.

And of course for moving subjects, the eVolution86H shoots in 1-shot mode too—and this allows you to shoot your image in both modes—for subsequent image-blending options in post-production.

Please make an appointment to come by and see the difference for yourself—seeing is believing!

Thanks to Sinar's extensive range of Adapter Kits, the Sinarback eVolution86 H is an open-system device and hence is adaptable to multiple camera platforms. It is suitable for use with both View Cameras and Medium Format cameras. The available camera adapter kits are identical to those available for the Sinarback eVolution75 H and the Sinarback 54M/MC.

The Sinarback eVolution86 H will be delivered in a cardboard box with the following items:
• Sinarback eVolution86 H
• CD with Sensor Reference Data
• CD with Sinar CaptureShop Software
• Firewire Cable 1394b, 4.5m
• Sinarback Piezo Calibration Chart
• Gray Card
• White Shading Diffusor 100
• Cleaning Kit Digital

Please note that the Sinarback eVolution75 H is now delivered in a cardboard box too. The reason for the change is that many customers didn’t use the hard case once the Sinarback eVolution had been installed onto their camera system.
The other reason is the very attractive pricing which forces Sinar to save some costs!
The new scope of delivery is valid with immediate effect.
Of course the hard case for the Sinarback eVolution can be ordered separately at any time.
