this is my first post here, im an israeli art photographer, more about me on my website.
im planning to get into the all new digital medium format system for my upcoming grand-scale project. soon i will be testing the options with dealers of hasselblad, and pahse-one/leaf here in israel.
most likely, the digital back will be the 40 megapix (mainly due to the huge extra cost for higher-res options).
my prior experience with digital backs is mainly with leaf aptus.
i understand the most current generation of backs is further improved, in sensor as well as overall system integration including software.
- hassleblad h4d-40
- phase p40+
- leaf aptus-8
im open minded here without any primary preferences among the choices.
in fact, i am sure i would be glad to have any of them, but since there are choices and the systems cost tons of $, i want to study the systems, test them and only them choose what might be a better choice for me, wether it is image quality or usability/comfort with the camera and the workflow afterwards....
worth mentioning, hassleblad H is actually unfamiliar to me, but HTS 1.5 is a very tempting accessory (with addition of 28mm), that i would like to have. i will not have this accessory for testing, so forum members opinion who work with it is very welcomed... if not HTS 1.5, i will be considering to couple the alpa camera with one lens to whatever system i choose.
any thoughts ?
what to pay attention during the testing ?
is the HTS 1.5 a match to dedicated WA alpa, not only in comfort of being part of the system but in image quality too ?
which one of the camera is more prone to artifacts, especially things like moire etc ?
