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

    Got home a couple days ago and one of the first things on the agenda was to fix the image that I had posted previously; so much nicer being able to see images on a "real" screen (meaning much larger) as well as having the horsepower to process it the way I wanted to.



    Again, this is three images shot at different focus points then layered in CS4 but first I did an LCC in C1. I do have a question regarding the LCC technique - this images was shot with a 35mm on a Cambo RS 1000 using (or attempting to) Capture Integrations white plastic. The problem I ran into was that the plastic was too large to fit within the lens "wings" thus it was shot approximately 1 to no more than 2 inches off the lens. Do I need to cut the plastic down in order to fit inside the "wings" so that it'll fit against the lens?

    Happy Holidays To All!

    First decent snow of the season...
    So I just HAD to shoot something as soon as I cleared 10 inches of the stuff from the driveway...

    Don, the redo looks *EXCELLENT!*

    I would trim the LCC plastic to fit between the ears to avoid reflections off of the lens side of the LCC screwing up the calibration frame.

    Bob:

    The last one is fantastic.

    In your second shot, you must have underground power lines there. Every decent church shot around here had a set of power lines running to it. If that was around here there would be lines running in from the right and terminating at the edge of the roof about where the down spout is.

    Thanks Jack, the image had been haunting me till I fixed it. I just took a dremel to a spare sheet I had, it fits now.

    BTW love the pinhole images!

    It didn't break above -5 degrees F here in Wisconsin today. Lots of wind brought the wind chill down to -35 degrees F. Amazing how the drifting winds change the landscape. Here are a few images ...

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

    Kurt, nice images. It's been VERY cold here in Colorado too. Right now, we've got a balmy 13-degrees, but we hit -14 last week.

    Anyway, I was wondering if you have any tips for shooting with this type of gear in those cold conditions? I had a bit of a problem with condensation on my last cold shoot. Mainly due to the fact that I grabbed my equipment bag, threw it in the truck, and went driving around and shooting (my primary method of daily shooting in these desolate parts). But upon getting my gear out of the warm truck to the 5-deg outside, things went better than expected. I didn't get much condensation (probably due to the extremely low humidity at those temps), but getting back in the truck proved a bit of a problem. Plus it was snowing. My lithium batteries in the Phamiya body died mid-shoot (which was odd because they were fairly new, and they purportedly do well in the cold; a second set worked great).

    Any advice welcome.

    -J

    PS: How about those 80/1.9 samples?

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

    Ideas from DSLR world, but same risks apply. If really cold, bring plastic bag outside with you when you shoot. Before getting back into truck, put camera in cold bag first and make sure bag placed in area that will allow contents to slowly warm (e.g. not in front of heating vent, sunlit window, etc). Cold camera with cold air inside and cold plastic enclosing it.

    Idea is that condensation upon sudden temp shift forms on outside surface of cold bag, not on camera. Situation is reversed going from really cold AC'd car/building to warm & humid (South Florida anyone?).

    Winter adds the extra threat of any condensation that does form freezing if an effected camera suddenly goes back into cold environment.

    Other option if and out of truck often would be a food cooler - older and uglier the better. First time out bring cooler out and leave open during shoot. Before you get back inside, put camera (sans battery to keep it alive longer) in cooler, close, etc.

    Leave truck: take out cooler, remove camera (leave open during shoot), insert battery, shoot and reverse. Keep batteries warm in coat, etc (or use battery pack in coat and cable) and let acclimatize for a second (just in case any condensation forms on shell) outside before inserting.

    Insulated outside air in cooler allows camera to warm very slowly when back in truck - lowering odds of condensation if you wake repeated trips in/out of warm car. When home, bring in closed cooler and just let it sit and slowly warm up. Many arctic shooters leave gear outside in Pelican's (sans batteries) until they need to come in to avoid a lot of temp shifts. Of course theft is less of an issue...

    Could use same technique if going from AC'd car in hot/humid area to AC'd offices and back a lot. Adding a dehumidifying gel pack in cooler would cut back odds of any moisture forming inside even further.

    On top of that no one would ever guess that old ratty cooler in your truck held $$$$ of gear.

    101 ways to do it, but the idea is to allow the cold/warm surface of the camera/lens to slowly adjust to sudden temp/humidity changes and to ideally keep such shifts to the minimum feasible.

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

    Here are some more from my weekend along the coast.

    Here is one from the first night, a 90 second exposure at f11 with the 80. the light was odd, a combination of very late sunset and city light creating an eerie glow through high fog. It was a bad exposure to begin with and I had to push it 2 stops in post, so it got a skosh noisy:



    Here is the color version of the B&W I posted earlier in this thread with the long range of grays -- I was amazed at how subtle the hues and tones were when viewed on my main box. This was the 210:



    Next is taken a half hour later or so as a storm blew in. Taken from roughly the same position but with the 35:



    The storm anly lasted a few hours, then later that night we got this. I realize it's a cliche, but hey, I love sunsets and sunrises! Taken with the 55:



    Then the final morning's sunrise taken with the 55:

    BTW, I was just looking at the jpeg of the first exposure above, and realize I forgot the crop to show noise and detail -- the small jpeg doesn't show either being downsized that much. Here is a 100% crop from the tiff:

    Cemal and Jack, very nice shots.

    Justin, I think Rob provided excellent advice in regard to cold-weather shooting. The Phase batteries have been pretty good in cold weather ... with the batteries in the camera body being the ones that don't hold up very well in my experience in the cold.

    I will send over 80/1.9 images shortly, Justin, as I just picked up an N version of the lens and I want to compare it with the C version I already have ...

    3 images from today. I still have to get used to the slower pace of using a MF camera and I still dont feel I get the IQ in the resized images.
    I am working on it. Hy6 with 40mm and 80mm Xenotar.
