I am currently in the massive time sink that is researching and deciding on my first MF Digital. So far I am leaning towards the Refub IQ160, 645DF+ and the 80LS lens combo.
I am mostly a landscape photographer, but want to get the Leaf Shutter Lenses in case I want to dabble in Flash at a later date.
During my web research, I came across this thread:
Medium format Stitching, what a tough business! | Photoshop, etc.
The poster states that "PhaseOne 645DF camera doesnít allow mirror lockup and open curtain at the same time, to let you use the lensí leaf shutter only: so that you click, and get no vibrations. Instead, the mirror can lock up as expected, but when you press the release button the second time (or use the cameraís timer) both the curtain and the leaf shutter go. According to PhaseOne customer support this is due to the way the camera has been engineered, and you have to expect vibrations in the 1/4 to 1/60 range even on a robust tripod with a solid head, due to the curtainís whiplash. "
This is the first I have read about this and would love any help with this. Is this an issue on the 645DF+?
Thanks in advance for any and all help
