    Hard to decide the right tech cam setup... still fighting

    Should mention that you can also rent any of these cameras for a week from Capture Integration- a good way to trial.

    Hard to decide the right tech cam setup... still fighting

    If you are looking at the Cambo 400, I would also look at the Cambo WRS-1600, which has a rotating back. This is my current camera. For me this is an indispensable function- not wanting to take the digital back off and on in the field (or as Dave mentioned, having two tripod mounts- had not...

    On the Capture Integration web site it does show the 138mm lens in an X shutter planned to be released some time this year.

    COVID-19 vaccination

    I got my first dose- Moderna, and am going to have the booster next week. It feels really good to be safe from serious complications- hopefully. I hope for everyone's sake we can really ramp this up for the whole world.

    Questions on trying to get better at using tilt on a tilt-swing

    This thread has me thinking a lot about using tilt for landscape photos- I have the Cambo 1600 WRS with four Rodenstock lenses, only one of which (40mm) has the tilt/shift mount. My question is, should I consider having my other three lenses (28, 70, 120mm) re-mounted for tilt-shift, or would I...

    Rodenstock 138mm Float

    A quick question; if you are using the Actus monorail, do you need to switch to the longer 300mm rail? Just curious if the 150mm monorail is long enough...

    Anyone using the Rodenstock 23mm?

    Warren, With regards to focus, the beauty of a super wide lens lIke this is that your depth of field is huge. In focusing on the building at a far distance, it should all be sharp focus, particularly at f8 or f11. The only focus concern I find shooting wide angle is at very near range, if you...

    Kipon Adapter for Hasselblad

    A question on adapters- hopefully someone knows; I am looking at the Kipon Tilt-shift adapter for use on a Hasselblad X camera. Kipon makes an adapter for Mamiya 645 lenses- my question is; would this also work with my Phase One lenses? If the answer is yes, then I have a lot of lenses that...

    Hasselblad 180/4 with teleconverter and CFV

    Since many of you have a lot of experience with Hassy telephoto lenses, let me ask a brief question. Any difference in optical quality between the C and CF versions of the Hasselblad 250mm auperachromats? I notice that the C version can be found for quite a bit less, so if the optics are equal...

    Hasselblad C vs CF lenses

    Since there are many more adapters for older Hasselblad lenses on digital cameras, I am looking at a Hasselblad telephoto lens. This may have been addressed before, but will the C and CF lenses work on a digital camera with an electronic shutter? It would require that the lens have a manual...

    The great tripod & head thread!

    This Think Tank Changer 50 looks like it makes just about the perfect cover. I just ordered one for my tripod head- the cube C1. By my measurements it should just fit snugly over the head. Good recommendation!
