It seems I'm soon to get the go ahead to purchase a full Hasselblad kit for work. I will do some hands on tests soon with various models, but I will not have the opportunity to mount it on my Linhof Techno due to my inability to borrow the correct adaptor plates, etc.
The kit will most likely be a H5D-60 and a set of primes, 35mm, 50mm, 80mm and 120mm.
My question is for those out there that have used the Hasselblad implementation of the 60mpx chip on a technical camera. I'm wondering how you are finding Phocus for scene calibration / LCC and if you are annoyed by any tiling or rippling issues, even after applying the LCC shot in Phocus? I plan to use only two Rodenstock lenses with the Techno / H-60, being the 40HR and, eventually 70HR, but also the 55 APO Sironar-Digital and 90 HR-W. If people are having a lot of problems and the results are a relatively frequent, I would probably rather go for the following kit:
H5D-50c, 24mm, 35mm, 50mm, 80mm, 120mm and HTS1.5x.
Or, if I forgo the HTS and 24mm, I could possibly afford to get the CCD 50 AND 50c, plus a set of lenses. I see the CCD version is seeing some price reductions at the moment, and research by forum members such as Anders Torger suggests the 50mpx CCD is the best all around tech camera chip to go for if maximising moments and maintaining colour accuracy is important. For me it is.
Either way to look at it, it's a luxurious position to be in, that's for sure. I wish they would be my personal cameras for me to use only, but alas, I'd have to share them with workmates, etc.. I would have the use of them for a good portion of the time for my personal projects, which I'm funded to undertake as part of my job.
Any advise on the above, particularly the 60mpx scene calibration performance in Phocus is appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
