    LOL! It's probably her way of flipping you off for the amount of camera equipment you have stored away in every nook and cranny of the house. See, I told you it was a bad idea to hide all of your Leica lenses on her side of the closet

    Oh, I know what went wrong...
    After my MF kit indulgence, Cynthia got a BMW Z4 3.0si.
    It is called "equalization" :-)
    It was that or another 3 carets or so for her collection.
    Now the Prius is "my" car and the Z4 is "hers"

    Here is another try, a portrait with 80 mm, the flash of the H3DII 31 (!), 400 ISO.

    Result is pretty good. The man is an art dealer in Lyon, France.

    I'm vey impressed with the quality of my new camera

    Re: Fun with MF images, part 2: What are you shooting with that MF back?

    Every once in a while you need to shake things up a bit; step outside the box so to speak. Anyone who knows me knows that I shoot landscape and very rarely anything else; and all my landscape is done using medium format digital. Yes, I will occasionally shoot wildlife but that's shot using an older digital 35mm; even rarer still is the occasional person, so rare that I call then human or family landscapes.

    What am I leading up to? How about restoring (or attempting to) a 95 year old image that has seen better days. I was asked a couple days ago if I could "do anything" with a wedding photography of a friends grandparents that was taken around 1910. The image was torn, faded, missing pieces, dirt, dusty, and scratched. I said sure I'll give it a try.

    The image was too large for my Epson scanner to I decided to set it up in the studio and copy it using my Phase 645 medium format camera and digital P30+ back and a 75-150 lens. What you see was taken at 1/7 at f/4.5 at a focal length of 90mm. The image was processed using CS3; the finished image was printed on Hahnemuhle Fineart Baryta paper on an Epson 9800.

    Bottom line? I liked the finished result and Jim the grandson loved it.

    Good job on the shoulder Don! I must say, however, I like the older, more neutral tone. That's just preference -- overall I think you did a superb job.

    Only a street away from my place. I've been meaning to take a photo of this for months:


    And in keeping with the theme of decay...

    Even closer to home, this is literally the view out of my bedroom window. It's actually a beautiful street except for this:

    I've been having tons of fun on my nightly 3-4 mile walks around the neighborhood with my new gear. I tend to carry something to defend myself in bad areas where I took my old gear. But now, it's a totally different story even around my neighborhood with a police station behind my home!

    Hmmm... this thread is quiet.

    From a few hours ago. Test shots for some new hopefuls. Still some retouching to do.

    Graham,
    A lot of us Americans are watching the news to see how our future is looking. May account for some lack of activity here Meanwhile, beautiful images but I'm curious about that night time shot of the building. If you had used a PC lens could you have eliminated that "tilt" of the buildings.

    what tilt? If you're talking about the building further up this page, there is a non-vertical wall on the right hand side. That's part of the building. Every other vertical in the image is perfect.

    Graham,
    Yes, that's the building I was talking about. I assumed all the walls of the building were vertical and that the strange appearance was due to lens distortion. Forgive my architectural ignorance, it has quite the Leaning Tower of Pisa look to it... I also quite like the image of the two models caught mid-stride in the air. Please don't tell me you got that one on the first take

    Here is P45+ shot
    with 80mm (my MF 'walk around, in cities)
    Kind of wonder what people really think of Portobello Road! (I have THREE other shots of people photographing the signs - to each his own- I like photographing photographers! LOL)

    Really like the Contax for walking around, esp the 80mm

    every once in a while, even the autofocus get's it right!

    :-)

    PS C1 processing on this. No post except the std 34% sharpening and WB. The P45+ makes it easy

    Of course, the only un-manned mac at the table.
    We met in the old Commandant's house at the Charleston Navy yard where they keep the USS Constitution.
    It demonstrates that you can rent just about anything.

    The park service folks used them as candy dishes.
    The place was built in 1804, so I guess they tried to put us in the mood.

    Re: Fun with MF images, part 2: What are you shooting with that MF back?

    Chris at Capture Integration came through once again; I have a shinny brand new Cambo RS1000 and P45+ to test while were at the North Rim next week. The kit consisting of the RS, P45, 24mm and 47mm lens arrived here at noon today and for the next 6 hours I put it through its paces. My immediate thoughts after 6 hours are that I really like this system. Ive tested my Mamiya 28mm with the P45+ and find that the corners fall off just as reported, compared to the 24mm with is totally sharp.

    The images were taken with the Cambo RS1000, 47mm lens then merged with CS3.




    I have all day tomorrow to get used to the new workflow that it takes shooting with a TC then were off to the North Rim.

    Did I mention that I really really like this camera?

    Don,
    I really enjoy these images you post. This is the kind of photography that I love and you do it very well. Looking forward to some more... meantime enjoy playing with your new kit. BTW, aside from corner sharpness do you have any other thoughts about the difference in the Mamiya 28 and the 24.
