    Seem to be collecting cameras that I intend to use one day soon, in addition to those I've had for many years. Member here since 2009.

    Imacon Flextight Question

    Hi, 1800 DPI is the resolution for 4x5 on your scanner. However, using a 6x6 frame you can scan at 3200 dpi. if you wish, scan half the 4x5 as a full strip of 3x 6x6 at 3200 for both sides of the image and stitch the two together with a massive gain in resolution. Hope that's of interest to...

    CFV50C and 903 SWC?

    It's many years since I used the CFV on my Hasselblad SWC/M, but from memory: The Hasselblad SWC/M has an extended tripod plate which prevents the battery fitting directly to the CFV and therefore the battery bracket becomes essential. However, if you cut the plate the battery fits without the...

    Hasselblad - CFV50c Version II - possbile?

    Can we continue to dream about one day having a sensor in the vertical/portrait form, or even switchable ? If the CFV is the biggest selling/earning product for Hasselblad, I don't understand why they have never developed the alternative view. Can anyone direct me to a review of the CMOS...

    Hasselblad X1D

    Same for me, Godfrey. I prefer 1:1/5:4 print ratios resulting from years of B&W silver printing on standard paper sizes. I'm also a lover of the SWC and my S-24mm gets me most of the way there, but not quite. Consequently, for me, the angle of view of the short side is more important than the...

    New 45mm S vs 30-90 zoom? Any thoughts?

    It's a Full House then. :-) Maybe an assistant is what you need ? :talk028:

    New 45mm S vs 30-90 zoom? Any thoughts?

    what is stopping you from doing what seems to be the obvious and selling off the 35mm ? 45/30mm combination seems logical to me. I'm stewing over 100/35/24mm whereas I currently own 70/35mm & 5 Hasselblad lenses. Think I swing between the extremes more. That showed on Lightroom analysis...

    Leica 007 and Canon 5ds/5dsr ETC thoughts

    Hi, Peter, Thanks for the benefit of your experience. Leica loaned me a 24mm for 2 weeks at the end of last year for a trip to Venice, Italy. I took the opportunity to shoot 300 frames with it and a selection of 6 of these are shown at the end of this album...

    Leica 007 and Canon 5ds/5dsr ETC thoughts

    "A lower priced body" would result in a bigger loss on bodies. Maybe a corresponding increase in lens sales would produce a profit. I want a 24mm S lens, but arrrrghhh !

    S Is For Show Us Your S2 Shots

    The S will only record DNG to one channel. Unfortunate, but true. It will however record DNGs to the SD card if there is no CF card present. Gary

    S Is For Show Us Your S2 Shots

    I can't give a qualified opinion on this. I've only one lens that flares like a pig, a 90mm Tele-Elmarit. The S and Hasselblad V lenses that I use on my S just don't flare in the work I do, which is different to that which you're pursuing. I don't believe that your experience with the S is...

    S Is For Show Us Your S2 Shots

    I've never had flare with my 70mm either, so far. BTW, I presume you have the RRS L-plate for the S in your sights ? So useful. IMO. The RRS extension plate at full length takes you very near to the Nodal Point on most lenses. I'm using Gitzo tripods with RRS heads at the moment, but...

    Is there really going to be a new Monochrom coming out in Feb?

    I felt the same until I sold off my Asph lenses and replaced them with lower contrast non-Asph glass. The issue went away immediately. Rarely clips the highlights now and the shadows don't need to be sacrificed. Asph is better with film imo.

    CFV-50c !!

    Doug, why haven't Phase re-designed the backs to work with the Hasselblad V bodies using the linkage to activate the sensor? The cable always makes it feel like an adapted back, rather than a first choice. Gary

    Leica S 100mm F2

    I bought into the S2 specifically to use my Hasselblad 110mm/f2.0 FE that was providing wonderful results to my almost complete satisfaction on film. The focus confirmation and digital capture would enable me to do much more of what I'd started with street portraits. Tbh, the 110mm with the S2...
