    Re: Phase One IQ180 first look

    I'm old let me just tell ya that right off the bat. If i can nail a handheld shot with a 110mm lens that should be shot at like 1/250 and pull one off at 1/50 either i am damn good or all this stuff about tripods and monopods for MF is a bunch of BS. You can handhold any of these system just like you can any 35mm system. I really question that argument out there . To me it is all about weight, speed and focal length and finding that balance be it 400 pounds or 1 pound and not to mention talent.

    It does require better photographic technique or care to shoot higher res MFDBs handheld , but you also need to give yourself credit as a photographer, Guy. Being shorter gives us both stability in the wind, not like those tall sasquatch guys....

    LOL Lower center of gravity.

    Seriously though I agree with Ken just takes better technique. No question MF is harder. But we always hear the 35mm Vs MF argument on this hand held thing and truthfully I think a lot of that is blown out of proportion. No one said this stuff was easy, you need to work at this. Like being any athlete you have to practice with the extra weight, focal lengths and speed. Plus you need to know your gear and it's full capabilities and limitations.

    that's real good to hear that it can be hand held. i just got the h4d-50 and i am very comfortable shooting it hand held but it is only 50 meg.

    Well one thing is it really needs to be comfortable in your hand. I think that is key

    Well found another image that is just killing me. Shot with the 150 WIDE OPEN. Just amazed at the amount of detail in this back. I'm on a tripod here

    Re: Phase One IQ180 first look

    I have to say I am getting terrible megapixel envy. I am truly impressed at the amount of detail in the crops. I have been telling myself it doesn't matter and now I can hear my lies screaming at me, my wife will just roll her eyes at not just the $43k for the back plus the whole system, there is no way, but wow. To add another note to the handheld thing, I hand hold my Bronica all of the time. Is it sharper on the tripod, of course, is it possible to get decent sharpness on a MF, don't be silly of course. They used to hand hold 4x5's , I used to hand hold 4x5's, and goodness knows I knew an old timer that hand held an 8x10. Joe

    I'm loading up my Epson 7900 with a 24 inch today and print a couple of these for our workshop folks to peak at. Scary thing is my printer is too small for it. LOL

    Re: Phase One IQ180 first look

    So I printed 23x 30 inch prints of Post 1 and 5 which are the Power Plant with the 150 D , the Church with the 110 LS and the Marina with guy on Pole with the 80 LS and each lens held up amazingly on this monster. So no lens issues there whatsoever

    The IQ180 should come bundled with an Epson 9900.

    Great to see that the lenses are holding up---no doubt the newer D series and LS lenses are going to be to best choices for these new backs.

    Looks like there's dirt on the sensor glass. Is cleaning any easier with the new back?

    Cleaning would be no different. Yes the back was pretty dirty for sure. Since it was a prototype totally expected it to be.

    Re: Phase One IQ180 first look

    Guy & Jack,

    your presentation of the IQ backs is very compelling. Would that i had that kind of money... However, don't sell yourselves short. Your "test shots" are by and large far better than most of the acts of photography committed daily around the world.

    I am hoping that i will be able to take advantage of the flood of traded in P40+ backs when the IQ backs finally start shipping.

    Carlos that is how I bought my P45 back. I waited until it was a generation (and a half) older, and that made it reachable for me. I am glad I did, but since I shoot tethered a lot, the IQ backs are making me want all-over-again.

    Kind regards,
