Sinar AG has reaffirmed its commitment to fully service its entire product line despite the insolvency status of Franke & Heidecke which manufactures the body for the Hy6 camera system.

“This information about Franke & Heidecke affects us as Sinar AG with respect to our medium format camera Model Hy6,” the company said in a statement. “Beyond that detail, the aforementioned information has absolutely no effect on the core business of Sinar AG and its well established professional, analog and digital view camera solutions for studio-, architectural-, industrial- and landscape photography.”

Sinar adds, “We hereby firmly declare that we continue to stand by our renowned Service for all the products of our company. We are convinced to fulfil all our commitments. We will keep you informed about the ongoing status regarding the firm of Franke & Heidecke.”
