Howdy folks!

Looking for some advice/info on the main differences between the two xpan models available. Browsing some second hand sites there seems to be a marked difference in price between the two, just wondering if there are any major advantages/features that come with the second model.

From memory - II allows you to rewind film in use, it shows shutter speed in viewfinder and they changed a couple of buttons - the iso dial for one, multiple exposures and I believe an electronic remote release...and from using them in the can alter whether the flash fires at the start or end of an exposure

Maybe there's more

In the 1's the bulb expsosure was restricted to a few minutes, in the second this was extended some way- 6 minutes I think?. I had one of the early 1's and the bulb was restricted to 30 secs on that, Hassy later changed it to a few minutes on the later production 1's. If you have the earlier 1's with the 30sec cutoff hassy will change it to 2mins for free if you contact them.

Hi Craig

Both very similar models having used both XPan II is better in terms of layout and the extra 510 second exposure might be very useful.

XPan I - max 30 seconds (modified to 120 sec.)
Xpan II - 540 seconds
