    What is "composing in camera"?

    Indeed, ego is a powerful force in slowing down (or impeding) growth and exchange of knowledge :) The funny thing (or the sad thing), IMHO, is that we are a relatively small community of people sharing a common love for something beautiful, and rather than cultivating and nurturing that, we...

    NFTs - the way of the future?

    I am always optimist - more than that, I do believe that we kinda need to move away from fossil fuel, to make life on the planet sustainable in the medium to long run. To invest in bitcoin, which is what I was talking about, you need zero knowledge and technology. It's much cheaper than having...

    NFTs - the way of the future?

    Interesting points. Blockchain's environmental impact is definitely a concern, as is concerning (to me, at least) any human activity that impacts on the environment - which is pretty much everything we do, as humans. On the good side, power can be obtained through the use of renewable sources...

    NFTs - the way of the future?

    In today's fast developing cryptoworld, NFT are gaining new followers, collectors and creators everyday. While there are people on both sides of the fence, lovers and haters, supporters and denigrators, believers and sceptics, it is clear to me that NFTs are here to stay - as are blockchain and...

    What is "composing in camera"?

    Hey Rob, indeed there are. It takes a lot of time and experience to fine tune our own path, and perhaps this investment of time and effort is part of the why many people tend to absolutise what works for them into universal rules of sort :) Once one absolutises things, the step to getting...

    What is "composing in camera"?

    Indeed, that's what it means - composing precisely (or as precisely as possible) at the time of shooting, rather than composing loosely and "fixing" composition in post-processing. To me, composing in camera is the way to go; however, there is one important caveat - image ratio. When we choose...

    Filtersystem for MF

    It seems to me that the Wine Country offers 95mm rings for their 100mm system - which should solve the 24mm lens problem :) Hope this helps, best regards Vieri

    Fun with MF images 2021

    This year, due to the infamous pandemic, for the first time in over a decade I didn’t go to the Isle of Skye in late winter, and I really missed it; I scheduled two trips in 2022 to compensate for that, but in the meantime, I thought I’d share a couple of Skye sunrises with you. 1/5 sec, f/16...

    Filtersystem for MF

    I use the Phase One XT, and I use the IQ4, so I have no need for CF even with full shift - which, being just 12mm, doesn't really make much of a difference if any at all re: the need for a CF versus non-shifting, with all lenses except for the 23mm which obviously can't shift much anyway :) I...

    Filtersystem for MF

    Well, the OP asked about the Leica S 007 - of course if you use lenses with a 105mm filter thread, using 100mm filters becomes an impossibility :) Personally, I can use a 100mm filter system with all my XT Rodenstock lenses (23, 32, 50 and 90mm), no vignetting even shifted all the way. Best...

    Fun with MF images 2021

    These days, it is very popular to show the fire side of Iceland, for those lucky enough to be able to travel there to photograph the new volcano. Being hard for me to travel there now, I thought I’d show the icy side of it with a couple of images from my archives. 236 sec, f/11, Hasselblad...

    Filtersystem for MF

    Another side note - I would never get a 150mm system, it's way to cumbersome to carry and use, not to mention that filters will catch wind like a sail on windy days, shaking themselves and making your whole setup shake :) When I was using the S (Typ 007), I found a way to use 100mm filters with...

    Filtersystem for MF

    Just a note about Grad ND - Georg, the OP, is talking about a Leica S (Typ 007), and in my experience with that camera Grad ND filters are still very much a necessity. Generally speaking, I still use them a lot, even with the (now larger) DR of CMOS I prefer to get as much data as I can at the...

    Filtersystem for MF

    Hello Georg, firt a disclaimer - I am a Formatt-Hitech Ambassador, but being an ambassador for a brand never stopped me from telling it as I see it. Starting with your last question, I wouldn't use a clear night filter in Iceland; those are more useful to balance the hues of city lights, while...
