    A frame from a P25 in the spirit of our shared documentary past.
    Maybe the 1930's or so ... (though not in black and white)
    from the book http://www.blurb.com/books/2324465

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Mamiya 645DF DM33/Leaf Aptus II 7, ISO 800, 1/40s f2.8. Natural light, Some contrast/lightness tweaks and a little vignette. Default noise control in COne. There's some softness which is actually motion blur due to a dodgy photographer.

    ISO 800 with natural light is far far better than under tungsten lighting which just fills shadows with horrid noise. It's pretty well behaved when using flash too.

    Re: Fun with MF images

    got a couple selects out of the MFDB on my last shoot (the ratio of selects is still heavily balanced toward my d300...but such is the learning curve, i suppose. haha)

    anywho...



    and, a relatively blatant attempt at ripping off Maya Guez's style. haha.

    Daves, I think Nikon's engine spoils us ... I'm fine when fully manual, but when using AF and/or aperture priority, I'm really struggling to unlearn things I tend to do instinctively. That's pretty tough.

    Superb lighting btw! The selective focus in the first shot looks like back tilt on a large format .. very cool.

    Baxter,
    This is the most creative and original! Fantastic photo! What gear are you using?

    I've been in San Francisco for the American Bach Soloists Festival (playing baroque trumpet) for two weeks now. FINALLY got a single afternoon to free to walk the city... what a lovely place!

    Aptus II 6 / Mamiya 80/2.8 and 210/4











    and sometime you get lucky... manual focussed :

    Great images - I like the combination of the set - sort of a kaleidoscope view of a city -

    Also when you get a chance, can we see some 100% crops from your pano - I always enjoy savouring that fantastic resolution.

    i am definitely 100% spoiled by the nikon everything. i haven't had a negative thought about my camera in the 3 years i've had it (except while failing at manually focusing the amazing zeiss 100 makro. lol). i think part of my adjustment is just getting used to the primitive AF of the mamiya body...that one gigantic focus point in the middle feels clumsy, after working with a gaggle of small cross points over the years. hopefully things will get smoother as time goes on...and hopefully upgrading to an AFDIII will help out as well. not being able to put an eyeball sized focus point over an eyeball throws me.

    thanks, on the lighting! it was the first time out with the paul buff 86" PLMs (though i think both of these are my beloved beauty dish as the main). and you're right on the selective focus, i hadn't made that exact connection, but you're spot on. i really grew to love my LF camera back in school...i was heart-broken at the end of the semester when i had to give it back. lol. i think if the MFDB adapter plates weren't so pricey, i would buy another toyo if i found a super low price on one.

    cheers

    beautiful image. From off the D71?

    Thyis area can be a bit hazy...did you need to clean up the tone? or was it really that clear (I like the depth, must have been stopped down, yes

    Thanks! This was using a Phase One P45+ on a 645DF and 150mm lens. I've also got 28mm, 45mm and 80LS mm lenses in the bag. Didn't use any filters with this.

    Really find the mountain hovering in the background both beautifully renderded but also an appropriate contrast to the man made mountains that sparkle in the foreground.

    I did not receive my postcard bud. LOL

    Seriously great shot and great light for sure. Now that is hitting one out of the park.

    I'm still sticking with my existing IQ140 order at the moment. I'm pretty happy with the cost/performance of the crop sensor and have the lenses in place that I need for it so this is still my happy place. The IQ UI will definitely make a difference for my tech camera shooting. It's also pretty handy not having to worry about the image circles/LCC/extreme sensor performance on lenses too. As a hobbyist I'm happy to leave those worries for you pros.

    One day, oh one day, my IQ140 will turn up ...

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Thank you all for the kind comments about the Seattle shot. They're much appreciated, particularly given the quality of the images posted here.

    I had booked a harvest moon for Saturday night to appear in the upper right quadrant to finish off the image. However, that fickle character mother nature reneged on THAT deal (plus no one would have believed it anyway).

    Love the skyline Graham. I spent 3 weeks in the area last year and only saw the mountain on the way to the airport on the last day!

    Cheers,
    This is funny... I've not had any time to shoot my MF equipment the last 3 or 4 months and was actually considering selling mine to finance my expanding need for performance photography related equipment.

    Then I took it with me to San Francisco this week and, although my stuff above pales in comparison to other shots on this thread, my mind was made up up that my MF stuff was going stay. Even if the 35mm stuff passes it up in megapixels, the file quality off those big CCD sensors is just yummy.



    This one's a bit big... so I think it scales down a bit in the post. Open it in a new window for the full file (I need to go back a downsize it a bit).

    Mac, that is incredible. We were trying to decide between Maui/Kauai and Banff/Jasper. Hawaii won out but Banff and Moraine lake is on my short list. I can only hope to get a look as nice as this.

    A good 1 degree lens for a 50mm sensor would be transportable, and expensive, and more of a sport/wildlife tool... but the Hassy 300 is a useful tool, and I am thinking of getting an apo-digitar 210mm... but, as you say, for landscapes, atmospheric haze tends to nullify the benefits of the quality of the lens.

    Architectural street photography is one of the main applications I envisage for the 210... and it is beginning to look as if I might be able to get my herbal medication sorted so that I can get something done.
