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

    Jack,
    great composition and for my taste your images really stand out quality wise (I mean color, tonality and sharpness). Plus: great scenery - not just an image to show of the quality of MF but your images are ausdruckstark for me(I dont know if meaningfull is the right word).
    Regards, Tom

    [QUOTE=t_streng;65534]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.





    Looks to me like you have it nailed. Is this output from Leaf or Adobe software? Very film-like tonality. I love it.

    Hi Tom:

    Thank you very much! I don't know what that word means, but it sure sounds like a good thing!

    Ausdruckstark means something like powerful (in this case), or expressive, more literally.

    Thanks Bob,
    So far I find it easier to convert the dng-files with photoshop compared to the Sinar software. For some reason C1 allways shows me an error when I try to convert the dng in c1. I dont know if it is my fault or if the Sinar dng dont work.

    Hi everybody,
    I'm waiting for my Alpa SWC. In the meantime I took some shots with the Phase One /80mm 2.8 / P45 DB.

    Hi joerg (?),

    I don't know if it's just the thumbnail, but this looks a little over-sharpened to me. Does the roof-line of the main tower look the same on the full-size version?

    The Sinar DNG's work fine for me in Capture One, (I am on the mac and use the regular, non-pro version), so perhaps it is your configuration. By the way, I like your images!

    Hi Folks: A friendly reminder that this thread is fast approaching 50 pages and 1000 posts in length, and as such getting close to the right time to start a part 3

    Hi Graham.
    Thx for this hint
    I'm new with C 1, experimenting with it only a few hours.
    Yes, a bit of sharpening has been done which should be ok for printing, but it seems that it is to much for regarding it on a screen.
    Rgds, Joerg

    ... just rechecked it and the original doesnt look that over-sharpened. Did the Thumbnail with the Web Contact Sheet function and it seems that at this point the sharpening, though unchanged, gets to harsh.

    BW Conversion using Pan F curve then decreasing the grain sharp slider slightly.

    I find I may need to use the left column for over / under ( +/- 1) exposure then fine tune a bit with Silver Efex. Return to CS4 and may tweak curves for contrast adjustment.

    Output sharpen with PK Sharpener.

    This is a high DR view of the Africa Museum, built by Leopold II, king of Belgium and prince of Saxe-Cobourg-Gotha 120 years ago.

    A nice place to visit (beautiful gardens) if you're lucky enough to visit Brussels & suburbs during a sunny day...

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    Lovely, Tom, particularly the first. I know I am a bit of a film fanatic, but I will have to eat my words about the 54LV and film having comparable resolution -- this is a direct comparison, same lens, same camera, same camera position, of the 54LV versus Fuji Acros in Xtol 1:1...this is one of the finest grained and longest ranged films you can find. I scanned it at 3200 dpi in an Imacon 646 -- no resizing...the files are natively comparable in size. While I still love the look of film and will keep on shooting it, it is interesting to see the results. It is basically the same results I had in 35mm -- given an equal imaging area, digital is markedly sharper and higher resolution than film. (For those who are not familiar, the 54LV is 22mp and a 1.1x crop from 645. The film was full frame 645.

    Here are two screen shots (decreased in size about 33%) that show the difference:




    And no, I don't believe the softness to be a focus issue -- there were no sharper areas and this was the case over several different lenses, and apertures.

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    Very interesting Stuart! I have a Mamiya too with a film back and have compared Fujichrome 50 with my Phase P45+, same lens, same camera etc etc. The back beats the film in a heartbeat. Frankly, a fairer test is to compare the back with 4 by 5 inch film. I think the back still wins because it's grain-free but there might be a teeny weeny bit more detail in the film shot.

    You might check the Luminous Landscape shoot-out of a couple of years ago...

    Best,
    Bill

    Really nice first shot, Tom. I really love that one. I almost thought it was square until I scrolled down I love the square format, and would trade all my stuff for a decently large square format digital back on a Hasselblad V camera. The CFV I find too small though, causing problems at the wide end. The 40 IF is huge, and not that wide at 38mm equivalent in 35mm or so, on the CFV.

    Quite a few hardy Wisconsinites made it down to the Lake Michigan shoreline yesterday for the annual polar bear plunge. Another time when it's good to be the person behind the camera.
