Thanks Tom!

Colours are really great IMO, and that 90-280 shines, but actually also the kit lens :thumbs:

Yes, like most cameras today ;) I think its nice that the Pana and Leica and Sigma share the mount, even though I am not so interested in Sigma lenses.

What are your first impressions of using it? Good solid feel and easy to get to grips with? It's an interesting camera for sure.

First time I saw it and hold it in hand I thought that its too thick and the grip is too large (for my hands) and left the store without buying. After further consideration (because I own SL lenses) I went back to the store with more time and also the SL to compare and decided to give it a try. After using it some days I actually dont find it too fat any more. It sits very good in my hand. Also most buttons are very good to access. It takes some time to figure out all the functions but overall most buttons are labeled and easy to use. The AF offers more functions and better people/face detection over the SL. The shutter is well damped. After some days and setting the camera up to my taste I allready feel at home and its really fast and good to use. IQ looks good to me so far as well. I havent done any high ISO test - I have shot it mainly in good light and low ISO so far. SO far I enjoy it - and I dont think it is just the "new toy"-factor.

Thanks for your thoughts, I may pick one up next week and have a play around, it's the first mirrorless full frame that has interested me from a size/build point of view. I hope you enjoy using it.

Wow, what is it ?

Wow, what is it ?

The camera is a CAPcam - a computerised view camera. Details here -

https://www.capcam.org/

In normal use, the camera is designed to be used with Medium Format Digital Backs.

I had an adapter plate manufactured that has a Mamiya 645 lens mount on it - this allows me through the use of lens adapters to mount all sorts of cameras on the back of the CAPcam to use their sensors and shutters in place of my Phase One back. The initial drive for doing this was so that I could start shooting video, but with the release of the S1R, I realised that maybe I could replace the Phase One for stills as well.

Currently it's very much a work in progress set-up (just started playing with it all this morning). The CAPcam software cannot read the RAW from the Panasonic, and whilst it should be able to read a JPEG, it's not working. They are looking into this for me.

So what I have to do at the moment (if I want to set tilt and swing) is a little bizarre - I set everything up using a Sony A7III (whose files the software can read), then take that off the CAPcam and attach the Panasonic.

Kind regards,


Gerald.

Very interesting. What are the black rods sticking out at the back? Rays of death? Strobes?

Very interesting. What are the black rods sticking out at the back? Rays of death? Strobes?

The fundamental design of the camera is based on a hexapod.

Those black rods are three pairs of motors that position the front standard.

You can see an earlier example of the camera ďnakedĒ here -

https://www.capcam.org/capcam-history/


(The production camera didnít utilize the hexapod base.)

Kind regards,

I believe that in the original design, they were indeed, "rays of death". However, after many meetings, the committee decided to go the other direction as Gerald has indicated. :o

Very interesting set-up, certainly not for the casual macro shooter :clap: Looking forward to see some of the magical results you can get with a tool like this.

I'm just curious (no plans from me to get into this kind of macro shooting) but I'm wondering what's the advantage of trying to use a Panasonic camera (on jpeg only) vs. just sticking with the Sony cameras that seem to work for both jpeg's and raw's?

Apologies for not explaining clearly - the CAPCam software needs to be able to display an image in order that I can set focus correctly. Itís not used for anything other than that - I still shoot the RAW for processing.

Very interesting concept, and I suppose the S1R with its multishot ability is more or less ideal for this. I watched one of their tutorials, and it's quite impressive. What's the price of this device?

gerald.d
24th April 2019, 00:34
Ok so here is the first semi-serious attempt at getting a decent shot from the S1R mounted on the CAPcam.

https://thegrandseikoguy.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/SBGB001-HR-focus-stack-test-C-full.jpg

This is a high resolution shot, four images focus stacked.

With the S1R unable to shoot high resolution with strobes, I relied on a single Rosco Litepad for illumination with my own custom light modification set-up. Obviously these are not as bright as strobes and with ISO at 50 and the lens (Schneider APO Digitar 5.6/120 Aspheric) at f/8, shutter speed was forced to 1 second for an exposure that was underexposed about half a stop.

Lens focal plane was both swung and tilted by about 16 degrees on each axis (I had to set this up first with my Sony A7iii since, as explained earlier, currently the CAPcam software is unable to read the files from the Panasonic).

This was very much a case of testing the current workflow, and I didn't pay any attention to lighting the case of the watch, purely interested in nailing the dial as best I could.

Four images processed very lightly through Capture One, then stacked in Helicon focus.

Here are some 800x1000px crops from the full frame shown above (I say full frame - I tend to crop everything to 4x5 ratio)

https://thegrandseikoguy.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/SBGB001-HR-focus-stack-test-C-crop-1.jpg

https://thegrandseikoguy.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/SBGB001-HR-focus-stack-test-C-crop-2.jpg

https://thegrandseikoguy.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/SBGB001-HR-focus-stack-test-C-crop-3.jpg

All in all, fairly happy with the way this turned out for a first test, but I think the Panasonic is pushing the Schneider beyond its limits here. I have plans to replace the Schneider with the Rodenstock 5.6/105mm in the hopefully not too distant future.

Kind regards,


Gerald.

This was just a test shot, but I wanted to see how high resolution mode coped with a particular type of moving object...

Exposure set at 1 second, lit with continuous LED.

Note that the watch second hand moves in a continual sweep (it doesn't "tick" at all).

Somehow the algorithm managed to create an image the only showed the second hand for a single one of the 8 separate exposures.

The UK's Amateur Photography did a test of the S1R a couple of months ago. They took a series at Bateman's, Rudyard Kipling's house in Sussex, on a blustery day, to see how effective a series was when there were moving objects, in this case the branches of a tree. They used High Resolution Mode 2. They also described the remarkable effect as 'witchcraft'.

Tried out one today with the "kit zoom". I can only say WOW. That viewfinder sails circles around anything. With an f/4 lens in a dimly lit room, the viewfinder image still looks like... I hate to say this... real life, only brighter. It's a very impressive camera, and since they seem to have fixed the on/off switch and the LCD on the "H" model, I might be ready for Mark II :toocool:

Both shot handheld with the S1R, Sigma EF adapter, and Canon EF 100-400/L/II.. Kept the lens's IS turned off.. AF was slow but highly accurate.

As I wrote to my fotogbuddies tonite, "...the camera is physically VERY usable, the native 24-105/4 is excellent for walkabout, with adapters there are LOTS of excellent lenses available, resolution and other visual qualities are 5-star, three of my existing EF lenses--the two TS-Es and the 16-35/4/L/IS--are highly usable, and I've bought just one more, the EF 100-400 II.. And I can get ALL that stuff in my rolling case!!!

I used the colour profile "Cinelike V", with some basic edits in PS, cropped to 16x7 ratio.

Here are a couple I shot yesterday in the afternoon HEAT* in my favorite local spot, both with S1R, Zeiss Milvus 18mm and Sigma adapter.. This lens is the best UWA of the few I've shot which include two Canon 16-35s (the F4 and the F2.8/III) and a 24mm TS-E.. This ZM18 is considerably better, overall, than the Canons.. I've fantasized about buying the Leica 16-36/SL, but I don't happen to have $5500 lying about**.. The Sigma L-mount 14-24 apparently will be shipping in a week or two (?); I have one parked in my B&H shoppingcart, but I've not yet pushed the Order button.

The first pic is an HRM, cropped top and bottom (and still almost 17000 by 9000 pixels), while the pool pic was handheld.

Altho this ZM18 is not the first UWA prime I've owned in my 20 years, I'm having to relearn to 'see' in such short focal lengths.. For instance, several times I bent over, saw a scene I wanted to shoot, parked myself on my butt, and then discovered I was too far away from it.. :o For the water-feature shot below, I was only about 6" (15cm) short of being IN the pool.


* and it's HOT in Phoenix; about 110dF yesterday and maybe 115dF today.
** but I might rent it.

Have a rented Leica SL 16-35/3.5-4.5 lens coming Monday to compare with my Zeiss Milvus 18/2.8 and the rented Tamron.. I'm rooting for the Leica; I already know the Milvus is better than the Tamron and the three Canons I had/have and also that nothing I have produces better images than the Canon TS-E50.

Got my Sigma 14-24/2.8 L-Mount - definitively a keeper.
"Only" 795 g, sharp wide open, perfect for travel/ landscape. The S1R is said to be on the heavy side, but when you come from MF (645z) it is really more portable. Will be great to have only 2,5 kg instead of 4 kg backpacked for a walk on the beach...

Yeah... So I sorta ran into a Black Friday deal that I couldnít pass on from an authorized retailer on a Panasonic S1R Kit (S1R + 24-105/4 for those that arenít sure). It was a very limited time ďimpulseĒ purchase (in a sense) but Iíve been looking at the LUMIX S for over a year now since first announced. Once I accepted that the Sony will likely be required to stay to serve at least as a work kit (I've already pre-ordered the Tamron 70-180/2.8) due to a better AF system then I started looking at options that I really want to use for personal photography projects. This is all brought on since Sony refuses to introduce an acceptable body design size (for me without a grip attached). I tried the A7RIV and it wasnít really 100% for me though Iíll likely add a couple of ďwork bodies to my Sony work kit once the base level is ďupgradedĒ to the new style body. As for my L-Mount kit, I will probably adapt my CV 35/1.2 (my lone remaining M mount lens) and maybe even look for a Sony A to L-Mount adapter if I can for my 135/1.8 that I never sold (my lone remaining A-Mount lens)... well at least until some time next year after this new house purchase is completed... and maybe Iíll have some Sony stuff to sell off because the LUMIX S Pro 50/1.4 is on my list of ďneededĒ lenses too but there are also a few of Leica APO-Summicron (in 21, 35, and 90mm focal lengths) that I have my eye on.

So I wanted to do a quick lowlight test of the S1R and the close focusing ability of the 24-105/4 OIS lens. This is handheld at ISO 8000, 1/15 of a sec, f/4, and at 69mm.

What I can tell is that this will be a versatile lens for both photo and video use... and perhaps the best $450 that I've spent on a lens so far. Not a great or special shot by any means but pretty much all I did was add one of my B&W presets to it. There was little noise present and what was there was attractive "grain like" noise. On a side note the jpeg wasn't bad either and at lower ISO I can see myself delivering those for family pics. I've included it below.

Looks like it is the larger body I wanted. Itís really comfortable but Iím not leaving Sony FE at all. I may shrink some of my Sony kit down a bit though and use some of the funds to finance a couple of lenses. I still have the Tamron 70-180/2.8 on preorder and will pick it up as soon as I can.

All images are 3k+ so open in new tabs to see full-res.

The S1R is great, falls well to hand, best grip of all my mirrorless cameras, mostly great haptics. Magnified view for critical focus is horrible compared to z7, α9 and α7sm2. Have been using a smallhd hdmi 720 oled 7 inch external monitor for critical focus, helps very much, although I am going to upgrade to a 1200p 2200nit external hdmi. The external hdmi just plugs right in and no tethering program or external tablet or computer required, kudos to Panasonic for this. Every high resolution camera and mfdb needs this kind of high definition raw output with no additional tablet, computer, app, program etc required. HDMI, USB, Thunderbolt or Ethernet, just get it together already.

Love the S1R. 232 lp/mm spatial resolution in highres mode, no pdaf wasted pixels, good color science. It's making images I only dreamed of making before.

Ah, I've not been there. I thought it might be somewhere in Westminster near the others.

Thanks for the info!

I rented a S1R today from the local camera shop here in Anchorage (Stewarts Photo) to decide if I wanted to get it as a companion for the S1 I bought from Stewarts last month. I had time this afternoon to take a few handheld shots around town with my 24-105/4 lens. Here are three of them.

For me, the ultimate test is how I like the prints. So I made 13x19 and 17x25 prints with my Epson P800 of these and a few other S1R images this evening.

Decison made. I'll be buying this S1R.

Hi Gary,

may I ask are you using any RIP with the Epson and how do you like it?

Hi Peter. I generally use the Epson printer driver with the P800 (and with my 3880 and other Epson printers in the past). I like the Epson ABW (Advanced Black and White) functionality. Occasionally I will use QTR (Quadtone RIP) if I'm not getting results I like with ABW on particular images/prints.

Two of the regular particpants in monthly color and B&W print exchanges I've been part of since April 2002 use Imageprint 10 to make their prints with a P800 and P5000. The prints do look very good.

My only complaint with the P800 is that when printing on 17 inch wide paper I sometimes get a slight paper skew as the paper feeds thru the printer. I've found ways to minimize it, but it does require some extra care.

Thankfully, taking photos and making prints (which for me is mostly a solitary activity) is one thing some of us can do without health risks, to ourselves or others, in these uncertain times.

It might be worth checking out the Canon Pro-1000 too.

Canon PRO-1000 printer review - Northlight Images (http://www.northlight-images.co.uk/canon-pro-1000-printer-review/)

While I have mostly used Epson photo printers for the last 20+ years, I've also owned/used the Canon Pro-10 and Pro-100 with good results. The Pro-1000 looks very good.

Thanks for the link Gary. My benchmark is actually cost of outsourcing to pro labs V the amenity of knocking off smaller sized stuff at home. My typical print size starts at 3X2 or 4X3 feet and I wont ever buy a large printer as I'm just not interested. However for smaller sized print runs - maybe...tbh I've hung a 75inch LCD screen on a wall at home and use that for personal display...but I do want to print some small stuff around the place. books/albums are definitely imo left to outsourcing

Processed one more of the few images I took with the S1R a couple weeks ago, before the "stay at home" order kicked in. I may try to get out this weekend for little while. Get some fresh air, exercise and take a few photos. Lots of space here in Alaska to be outdoors and far away from anyone else.
