    Thanks Guy. I can't take credit, nature composed the waves. I just pointed the camera at it.

    i'm only taking about 6 shots for each of these portrait sessions.. since they happen on the street, sitting or standing... and even though the focus was just a little off the eyes, this one really portrayed who she was. (that 110/2 is tough at this focus distance.. only 1/8" DOF....)

    Re: Fun with MF images

    My first image post, appreciate comments, but appreciate some gentleness too...:-).

    I usually work with a Canon 1d3, but these were shot with the Hassleblad H3D-22 on a test drive...dealer demo. The lens was the HC2.8/80 with HTC1.5. The HTC was easier to use than I imagined, geared, and with sensors to tell the camera, and I understand Phocus how much of it is being used. Nice center detents too.

    As I was testing the camera, I did not do any processing other than Phocus export, CS3 resized, watermark, save. I must say, I am impressed with MF quality.

    This is a Lange Datograph, showing dial side. Even with tilt at the max 10deg, there is not quite enough to render the entire dial focussed.



    100% crop. No further processing on CS.



    Reverse side, showing movement of Datograph.



    100% crop, no CS processing. No touching up, even the two strands of cotton fiber on the glass is visible. I love the 3d effect.

    Hi P. Chong, and welcome to getdpi!

    First comment is I would have probably set the main time to "10 minutes before 2" to better see the lower part of the watch and more clearly see the hands.

    Next is re the Hassy TS converter. When I tested it, I found exactly the same thing -- not enough tilt to get the PoF I needed for a typical tabletop shot. Personally, I think that if table-top product is your thing, then currently one of the digital-design view cameras like Linhof or Arca are the best bet. You could also try Helicon focus as it works very well for this type situation, and Hassy has the micro-adjust focus thing when shooting tethered which would be a perfect mate for Helicon.

    All that said, everything else looks pretty good to me in terms of detail (where it is in focus) color, processing and representation!

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Peter, as a watch buff I am a bit envious of your timepiece. A. Lange is one of the few watches I've never had the pleasure of owning. With regard to photographing watches (or any reflective jewelry) you have set yourself a difficult task. I have tried on more than one occasion to accomplish this and eliminating the reflections, on both the inside and outside of the bezel, are murder. Even the stock photos on A. Lange's website have some unwanted reflections !!! I think you did a better job on the display back, which is simply beautiful. The shot below (using my Sinar e75LV) was done as a test for a local high end watch dealer who was not happy with his in-house images but, unfortunately for me, did not have the budget to outsource them

    Re: Fun with MF images

    How funny that the most item i shoot with my H3D is the watch, no much opportunity or time to go out here and nothing much interesting to shoot here at home than watches, i will try to shoot jewels [of my mom] if i can, but i need table top, i don't even have normal table for shooting products.

    Thanks Ed, and let me return the compliment with your shot of the pathway into the woods. I doubt I'll get that watch shooting gig but am working on another. Hope springs eternal

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Thanks for the kind comments. Indeed I have been collecting watches for a long time. And shooting them is great fun.

    Jack, yes, the traditional watch shot is 10 past 2, and for Lange, their product shots are 10 to 2. Same smiley effect...The session was rather hurried in a dealer studio, one hour, fired some 49 frames. Little details like getting the cotton fibers, cleaning smudges, fine tuning the positioning, making sure our reflections are not seen from the bezel were dispensed with.

    I have tried Helicon Focus with my 1d3, but found the process a bit too tiresome.

    David, indeed ALS is a fine watch, and a great company. I have had the pleasure of working with them, as founder of their fan club for more than a decade. You are correct that shooting small, shiny objects are a difficult task...and the crystal reflects the light source causing haze...but in may paid shots with these watches are done with the crystals removed to eliminate reflections. The more difficult reflections to rid of are those which arise from the curved bezels.

    Here are two more watch pics, from another earlier session with the H3Dii-31 with the HC 4/120 macro. Lighting is one very large softbox, lit by a ProFoto monobloc, overhead the table. No processing other than Phocus out, CS, resize, watermark, save.

    Apologies for dirt on the back of the strap.



    100% crop.

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Yes, I guess so...the slight fuzziness as this was done hand held.

    The H3d-22 was shot on a Linhof ballhead on a Gitzo tripod. The H3dii-31 was done handheld. Both with a ProFoto monobloc with a large softbox overhead. Also no HTS, so DOF is miniscule. I can see the fat pixels of the 22 putting out a punchier picture than the 31.

    Re: Fun with MF images

    about 15-20 minutes. Haven't had anyone hassle me yet... I've offered a free 8x10 of one of the images. I keep a portfolio of my work on my iphone, and I give them a business card with my email and phone #. For me, initial contact is the hardest. I'm a better listener than talker.. and that seems to help break the ice. There's a lot of appreciation about asking to take their picture, rather than having pictures taken without asking. A number of the people are homeless, and just like being talked to as a person.

    One thing about MF is the captured DR. I also am liking the subtleties found in Dalsa greens:

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Jack, I have to agree with you about the dalsa greens. With the kodak sensors it seems I was always having to back off the greens and even lowering the green channel to get a natural look. With the P65+ I am loving the greens, especially when the scene is somewhat less than lush pure green.



    Cool images by the way, I love both of them.

    Thanks Carsten! Not sure which junkyard shot you are referring to, the monochrome pano or the color one of the cars along the creek? The former was specifically cropped to the pano format to better utilize the natural lines of the road through the image, and I think the monochrome treatment helps zero in on the composition. I will probably work that image a little more, probably go cooler towards a more neutral tone. The latter was a more difficult shot technically, into the Sun with reflections off the water. I was actually surprised the P65+ captured the range in that single exposure as well as it did.

    I figured that was the one you meant. I am pretty impressed with this P back's ability to handle monochrome conversions, providing excellent tonal range while retaining good micro-contrast and excellent shadow detail.

    Jack, these are very important to me as I've ordered the H4D/60, and seeing the natural qualities of these Dalsa shots is reassuring.

    I hear you Marc! For both of us it was a huge delta in dollars for a marginal increase in resolution. However, the files are different -- and you are going to be head over heels in love with what you can do with them, especially when it comes to monochrome. It took almost a month, but now that I've learned the files better, I'm definitely past the pain of the upgrade .

    Sorry if too big but the detail is what makes this image.

    I always love to see that big shots but due to forums rules i must see it in smaller version, and few who post a clickable to large shots here[larger than 1200x in any direction].

    Thanks! Just a backyard of an auto wrecker, and apparently he stacks up old cars along the bank of the creek so the occasional travelers stop to take photos
