    Hasselblad Macro - XCD 120mm vs V 120mm

    How high a magnification do you want to shoot ? The 100mm C T* with an extension tube or 2 is an outstanding combination. As sharp if not sharper than the V macro lenses. It's of course not flat field so you have to allow for that. Having said that the XCD 120 is another class of lens. You...

    Anyone considered switching to shooting 100% with film?

    It is a wonderful thing. My new dilemma is considering whether the environmental impact of my processing about 60 sheets a year is something to be concerned about.

    8K is so last week... meet 12K

    You do realize that the camera was introduced over a year ago ? The bigger news is the price has dropped to $6K.

    New to MF digital with 100mp camera - benefits of big/heavy tripod, given electronic shutter?

    I've been carrying a Matthews zippered, fillable sand/rock/water bag for the last couple of decades. I've hung it under the center of my 12' tall Gitzo when I stood beside it on a 15' ladder shooting architectural images, under my little Gitzo traveller carbon when back packing and under the...

    Fun with MF images 2021

    I saw the Images and knew immediately that you had used the ACROS emulation. I shot hundreds of rolls of that stuff, still shooting it in fact. I think they really nailed the look. The images are very nice. Hard to go wrong with [email protected] shots of a welders with sparks flying and anyone in broad...

    Fun with Sony Cameras 2021

    Good observations. That is a Water Snake. Unless you have a Koi pond or pet frogs he's not a threat :D

    Medium Format and Coffee

    My friends in Tuscany insist that you must fill the basket so that it's a little higher in the middle. Then then when you twist the top on the pot it evens the coffee out perfectly. :unsure: I just explained their preference in 2 sentences. My wonderful Italian friends can spend a half an hour...

    270mm lens for 8x10 camera.

    I said they were popular. Not ideal. I helped teach a couple of workshops by a well known assistant of Ansel Adams in Monterey Valley years ago and everyone had a 270 G Claron. They were considered part of the standard field kit for 4X5 and 8X10.

    Fun with MF images 2021

    Interesting image. It looks like a 3ds Max render. Particularly the foreground and the building.

    Going back from GFX100S to SL2

    I've used all three and there is no doubt that Leica has very appealing, unique color. That Kodachrome look, some would say.
