    I'm not Carlos , but I played with one and you can definitely check the focus. The live view was not enabled yet (I don't think there is a demo back out there that has the live view enabled).

    When I concluded that it must be badly scanned 35mm film I was unbiased, as I had not read what camera you used... some pictures (even D3X) come to life when you zoom in to them, even at web res, but not these.

    Hasselblad/Phocus would handle this scene no problem without HDR... your HDR picture is more colorful but lacks impact and res... a polarizing filter would help. Perhaps you could try more post-processing rather than HDR. Where does the gravel in the sky come from?

    Have you tried Jack's MF to web downsizer plugin?

    Please find attached a hi-contrast scene I took with my H3D11-50 (which I have upgraded to H4D-60). I took pictures for HDR but did not need them.

    I have just re-downsized it with jack's plug-in... I like it how it is, but I could have "enhanced" the colours.

    I Love shots like this. Colors are perfect IMO ... enhancing them would ruin it ... it is so natural as is.

    (Pic might need a bit of straightening).

    Thank... I like warm colour but not too OTT, or "HDR".

    Straightening must lose some res... so the technical loss-less way to straighten is to crop after printing?

    Many of the magic bells an whistles in software are juts opportunities to mess up the picture.

    I avoided perspective problems by shooting horizontally - hope to use a view camera next time I am there.

    Hi Dick,
    I only posted the HDR as an academic exercise in pulling the detail out of an image. It is an extreme case and badly done on purpose to show the amount of detail actually hidden in a file. I would never dream of presenting that as a finished product. I had no idea Jack had a downsizer plugin. Where do I get it and for what software product does it plug into?

    They did not demo focus confirmation on the back we had, so I assumed it was not enabled in this prototype. Claus Pederson (President of Phase One) assures me that it will be on the shipping backs. I had a lovely chat with him at the Phase/CI event in Miami.

    One of my favorites so far of your NYC building images. The composition and exposure of the buildings, reflections and sky are truly breathtaking. Excellent shot, Woody. By the way, are you shooting handheld? Is it possible with that combo?

    The Alpa viewfinder with the correct mask, which is not accurate by a long shot. (the frame lines are substantially smaller than what the lens takes in.) The Leica 24mm finder, or the frankenfinder, are at least as good even though the aspect ratio is wrong.

    I look like a tourist - natives walk at high speed, generally in traffic in the middle of the street, with their eyes fixed straight ahead. Except that the power cord running down my sleeve to the H back make me look like a suicide bomber.

    Handheld is the point of the exercise. Here's a picture that looks just like my setup (obviously a different back but its the same size) that I scraped off of the Alpa site:



    This is meant to be handheld. For metering I use the sunny 16 rule (and its various adjustments for shade, etc.) and check the histogram. For focusing I'm hyperfocused which with the 36 covers a lot of ground. So it's a point and shoot with an extra twitch of the thumb to cock the shutter. I keep it in one hand hanging on by the handstrap so it's always ready to use.

    Shutter speads down to 1/30 are really easy. The combination is heavy - the intertia inherent in its weight helps stablize it.

    I've said many times that this is the Hasselblad Superwide C for the digital age (of course 3x4 rather than square).

    BTW I couldn't have gotten this with a tripod because I'm standing in the middle of the street in a small gap in the traffic. The great thing about this is the ability to shoot fast and loose - an intuitive rather than deliberative style.

    Add a white diffuser filter hanging on a string from your neck (for removing colour casts, remember it next time!) and you're guaranteed to be arrested:-)

    Nice shot! Would work great in B&W I think.

    I took a few days off last week to travel to the West of England, Devon and Cornwall. Here are a few images with some details below:



    These unusual rock formations are at Sandy Mouth near Bude on the north Cornwall coast. Hasselblad H4D-50 with HC 50mm lens.



    Hasselblad H4D-50 with 120 Macro lens



    Focus stacked from 3 images: Hasselblad H4D-50 with HC 50mm lens



    Sandy Mouth beach again. Focus stacked from 2 images. H4D-50, 28mm lens.



    Clovelly Harbour at low tide, early AM. Focus stacked from 2 images. Hasselblad H4D-50, 28mm lens

    Hi Quentin
    Love the second and fourth shots - hope you're all well.
    We're off to Cornwall for a week, but I think I'll be working most of the time. I've still resisted the MF bug . . . . don't even feel like I'm teetering on the brink anymore!
    all the best

    Hi Jono

    Thanks - we are well, and hope you, Emma and family are too.

    I forgot you had a place in Cornwall.

    I spent one evening in Paignton with a coachload of pensioners from Wolverhampton. Don't ask...

    I can still see your hands gripping a nice Leica S2. Hmmm...

    Hi Jack, many thanks

    With a couple of the images this was the first time I had seriously used focus stacking with Helicon Focus. I was looking at the Hassy HTS 1.5 to replicate LF movements, but I wonder (save for shift for archiotecture) whether this is really necessary in many cases? Focus stacking is miore versatile I would argue. The HTS 1.5 would not have been much use forthe Clovelly harbour shot, for example, whereas focus stacking was.

    And the HTS 1.5 costs a shedload of cash.

    Hi Will

    The HTS would be great for a limited range of subjects. I'm beginning to conclude it is a clever solution to a problem I don't have, or for which I have better alternative solutions.

    cheers

    I like them all, Quentin, but these two are my favorites. Well done. The focus stacking worked very well for you. I've had mixed results.

    Hi Joe,

    Thanks for your kind words. Focus stacking - well, the subjects I have used it with lend themseves to the technique pretty well.

    I have been looking though the work on your website, great work and quite a variety too. A pleasure to visit.

    I'd be interested to hear of any issues you have found with focus stacking (I use Helicon) in case i run in to them.... One I have had was some "ghosting" around edges, but it was a fairly quick fix.

    I hope you are enjoying using your H4D-50.

    cheers

    With a couple of the images this was the first time I had seriously used focus stacking with Helicon Focus. I was looking at the Hassy HTS 1.5 to replicate LF movements, but I wonder (save for shift for archiotecture) whether this is really necessary in many cases? Focus stacking is miore versatile I would argue. The HTS 1.5 would not have been much use forthe Clovelly harbour shot, for example, whereas focus stacking was.

    And the HTS 1.5 costs a shedload of cash.

    I've owned an HTS 1.5 but recently sold it in favor of a technical camera and focus stacking. With the HTS 1.5 it is actually quite hard to get focus correct in the viewfinder. Most people who are using it are using it tethered for product and the like under controlled lighting where live view is available.

    It would be really, really nice if H did a firmware modification that automated focus stacking.

    I have been telling Hasselblad that - and if more people mention it, they might start thinking about it.

    One of the problems is that the lens does not feed back precise values for the focus distance or the extension... but it might be possible using the focus zone info that is fed back, or, perhaps, motor run time.

    Interesting observations, Woody. I think you have finally killed off any lingering desire I had for an HTS 1.5, essentially for the reasons you mention. As for product photography, that also lends itself to focus stacking (although shallow focus remains popular with food, etc).

    Many thanks. Yes, you could say focus stacking has found a new fan...

    Actually I have way too little time - I just carry a camera with me everywhere. I power the back with an Image Bank II. Hasselblad is said to be shipping sometime this month a new battery holder that will ride under the back and power it with a Sony video battery.
