    D800E with Macro Digitar 120


    This is my first post, but I have been lurking and reading for quite a while. First off, I must say I really appreciate the massive range and depth of knowledge present on this forum. I have learned a lot. Plus, it seems to be more civilized than your average photo forum out there, which is nice too.

    Anyways I though this might be of interest to some of the members here. I have built one of those Frankenstein setups with a Sinar X, a nikon pk-12a extension tube and some adhesive to be able to mount my D800e body on a Sinar and use a Schneider Digitar Macro 120 Digital lens. Those familiar with these sort of setups are well aware of the limitations involved in mounting a DSLR to a view camera. But you can still have some fun with it.

    Finding samples of such a setup is not easy. I have not run across any specifically with the Digitar 120 and the d800e. So this may be of use. My sensor is in serious need of a cleaning so the dust specs do detract to some degree. But it is what it is. Here is a sample:

    I have aslo uploaded the Raw nef to my dropbox for those who wish to inspect full resolution.

    Dynamite! Terrific color and sharpness. Love the narrow dof and transitions.
