In-Depth

1. On the Hasselblad V series the small PIN - image below - are often grey or almost black. The digital back needs a PIN that is has a pure reflective silver/metal color to receive the wake-up signal. This can be done by cleaning the PIN or make a line with a silver-pencil. This will re-establish reflection and the back will work in 1-shot mode.

2. Use the wake-up cable from Phase One. Press wake-up cable, to wake up the back. Next step is to press the exposure button to start the exposure. Or the use of the Kapture Group One Shot cable.
