    Bill that's pretty amazing and better than mine I think though that does depend on where you focussed... do you recall?

    It's a tough job sometimes... (both shot using 150mm f4 PQS lens)

    I'm pretty sure it was autofocus at the exact centre of the image.

    I should add that the Sharpness Falloff setting in C1 is very powerful and I forgot to mention that I used it just a little in this image.

    David and Graham,

    I like them all! Awesome make up Graham. David, if your model had a smoldering cigarette in her hand, shots #2 and #3 would be perfect "film noir" fodder

    Graham, to be honest, I think the second model looks like a piece of plastic

    David, awesome, the eyes are stunning!

    Here is my recent image, Contax 645 with 45-90mm and Leaf 65.
    I shot this at birthday, with a Nikon 800 flash mounted on the camera, then converted to B&W in PS4 to add a mood.

    Seriously, I welcome constructive feedback. The full res file looks good and sometimes skin loses all texture when reduced for the web. Here's a crop from the file:

    For Graham:
    I celebrate your work. It is really good.I need some info on the 54LV back. You seem to be well versed on Sinar backs.
    Do you encounter moire often on fabrics with this back? If so, how do you deal with it?
    Is the Live View feature done in the back or you need to be tethered to a computer?
    In your opinion, how well it would work with a 500CM?
    Have you used your back with movements? Color casts?

    Since this back has inexpensive adapters for different platforms, I'm considering it to fit my Hasselblad for the time being. Later on, I would add a Hy6 with one lens and so on. Step by step. I love the skin color in your photographs.
    Thanks in advance Graham for your time.

    Only on about 2 shoots in 2 years, so it CAN happen and if you shoot a lot of fabrics in perfect focus, you could experience it a lot more than I do. This is an issue for all 22 MP backs in particular.

    I usually airbrush the colour in 'colour' mode, leaving the pattern of the fabric intact.

    It only works on the tethered computer.

    It wouldn't be much different to the setup I have now - i.e. connection by sync cable only. It's not perfect but it works. If anything, the 500CM will be more of a pleasure to use without having to swap film backs every 12 frames.

    Quote Originally Posted by Uaiomex View Post

    Only briefly playing with a view camera. These chips should be good for this type of use. Sorry I didn't look into it thoroughly enough to determine color casts. If you do get them, the Sinar software supports a white shading file (or whatever it's called) which undoes the cast. According to other users such as Rainer Viertblöck, it works well.

    I have a similar plan to upgrade to Hy6 in time. It's pretty easy to switch adapters. Good luck with it all!

    Thank you Jack and Evegeny!

    Evegeny, Nice conversion. I tried shooting my daughter's birthday with the same lens/camera/Leaf and a side mounted flash, I found the combo way too heavy and unbalanced for any serious shooting in fast moving environment like a party, how was your experience?

    David, my experience is the same, this lens is very heavy and eats battery faster than other Contax AF lenses (I don't have super-tele).

    I think zoom lens is very useful for events when situations change quickly and no time allowed to change focal lengths. In studio I use it on a tripod.

    Took this in Canyon lands National Park, Moab the day after I went to False Kiva which is very close by.



    Mamiya AFDII P30+ 28mm lens. Opened in C1 4.8 then finished the processing in CS4 this morning.

    Found out that I should have my new lens for the Cambo RS1000 by the end of next week. Thank-you Chris!!!!!

    Don, nice image, but I find the halo at the horizon bothersome. Just my $0.02.

    These were shot on the same day at the Winter Wheat images I posted a few days ago.

    The printed images doesn't have anywhere near the halo effect that we're seeing in the Jpeg.

    Industrial Observations Within the Western Landscape, a new series I've been working on. A new style for me, both in subject and processing. Let me know what you think.

    Justin - I like the newest series.

    David - Thank-you, Moab or Moument Valley both have great places to photograph - we try to get there several times a year.

    Ditto. Excellent images and color/saturation looks great on my system. The only minor nit is her forehead looks a bit hot in the second image, so maybe burn it in a tad -- shoulders are just right though.

    You've got mail Give it a try and let me know if it helps on web output. Take the full sized, fully CS4 processed tiff file BEFORE the extra web adjustments you had to make, then run that action and check it.

    Graham,

    You really seem to like (IIRC) that 180/4 + tube. It sure seems to produce. If you get a spare bored second, would be great to see/here about it.

    Really nice look on that second one, Graham. Almost Leica M-like in its intimacy. The first ones I find less intimate but more stylish, also very nice.

    Sorry, not by a long shot! The color and the processing kill the beauty and the youth of the model (imo). Somehow it changed character now it looks like a snapshot instead of a casual portrait, other things like the hair and the background, top left corner are annoying in this version too.

    The success of your first freckled portrait was its natural look, maybe if you did the same here...

    Graham,

    I happen to like both the color and B&W equally, but agree they have a very different "feeling." My only nit is in the color version, the bright white RH side is more distracting...

    Thanks to Chris my 24 and 120 lens were both delivered yesterday



    This is the result of the initial testing of the 24 w/center filter. Opened first in C1 then finished in CS4.

    I hope to post examples of the 24 vs. 35 vs. 72 vs. 120 lens shortly.

    Decided I really didn't like the other image and re-cropped it..
