    Still skeptical about Fujifilm's GFX 100(s) IBIS?

    I've been a Hasselblad user since the '60s, and still cherish the two that I still have. But, now that I'm about to turn 80 (ack!), I bought the 100S solely because of the IBIS. A few days ago, I had the 110mm on the 100S while tromping around the wildflowers. This test image was hand-held...

    All Polarizers are not equal

    I've been using Hoya filters since the 1960s on Hasselblads and Nikons. Recently, I bought a Fujifilm 100S, and with the freedom of hand-holding MF came (new to me) magnetic filters. Kase seemed to be popular, so I bought a "starter kit" yesterday, consisting of an ND 8, ND 64 and a circular...

    FS: Canon EF 24-105mm L IS USM lens and camera full kit

    I am the original owner of this gear. It's all in barely used condition, except the Tamrac carry case, because my name is on the inside. - Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM, image stabilized, “L” series lens with original lens hood, front and rear caps and original lens pouch. - Canon 40D camera. -...

    Fujinon GF 30mm f/3.5 on GFX 100S

    Here is a quick test of the Fujinon GF 30mm f/3.5 R WR lens. The test here was at ISO 100, f11 @ 1.6 seconds, on a tripod, daylight illumination. The RAW (RAF) image was processed in Capture One, outputted to TIF, then further processed in Photoshop and downsampled to JPG. I used controls in...

    Hasselblad / Zeiss 120mm Makro on Fujifilm GFX 100S

    This is far from a controlled scientific test, but enough to demonstrate if the Zeiss Makro-Planar CFE 4/120mm works on the GFX 100S using a Fotodiox DLX Stretch Lens Adapter. The Hasselblad was a 503CW with a Phase One (Phase1) IQ-160 back. Initially, I attached the lens to a Hasselblad...

    Hasselblad "V" system lenses on GFX100/100S?

    Has anyone here had experience with "V" system lenses on the GFX100/100S? I have some of Zeiss' best glass for my Hasselblads, and hate to sell them if all they need is an adapter.

    MF In-Body Image Stabilization at Last!

    I've been waiting "forever" to hand-hold MF at (presumably) 1/125 and get tack sharp images. According to reports from Photokina, Fujifilm is working on the GFX 100 (102MP), and "...also features the world's first in-body image stabilization system for a medium format mirrorless camera."...

    Hasselblad HTS1.5 Tilt/Shift Adapter

    When I first saw this I thought it was an ArcBody Photoshopped. Apparently, Hasselblad had to take it off the market while they were fighting a law suit (probably by one of the bottom-feeders who make a living by finding loopholes in patent filings). Has anyone here had experience with it?

    Your humble opinion on Hasselblad V WA

    After shooting Hasselblad "V" systems for about 30 years, my shortest lens has been the 150 (other than the ArcBody Rodenstock wides). So now I'm in the market for a 50, 60 or 80, but I'd like your experienced opinion on which is the "sharpest" and user-friendly for my IQ-160 back, please.

    Capture One and Lightroom equal now?

    I'm not sufficiently conversant with either Capture One or Lightroom to make an in-depth comparison myself, but I'd like to read a critique and judgment call by experienced users of both here.

    Tech camera caught in a downpour

    You tromp with tripod, Cube or other pricey head, Alpa/Arca/Cambo/Linhof/Plaubel/ArcBody/etc tech cam and attached Rodenstock/Schneider/Fuji/etc lens and PhaseOne/Leaf back, to a vantage point 1000ft/305m from your car. You make some excellent captures and completely unexpectedly, you and your...

    Custom profile maker recommendation?

    It doesn't seem cost effective for me to buy the hardware because I'm using only two papers and two canvases with a NEC PA271w as my primary monitor. Has anyone here had good results from folks who're in the profile-making business?
