    Thanks Darr, I went out for a play and I really like it. I have used my 120mm a lot but generally to shoot over something. The test shot attached is a pic I have taken a few times, at the lake at the end of my street, but the headlands in the background always appear a little to far away but...

    Thanks Darr, That makes a lot of sense. I really like using my longer lens, XCD120, for my Panos. So are you just using the E6H as a side mount gimbal with an L bracket to shoot portrait? I use my XCD45 and XCD120 50/50% so I am not sure a gimbal would work unless I carry both. Would adding a...

    Hi Darr, Thanks for this post. I have been a regular pano guy for a long while. I use a Benro Pano tripod head system for my multi row panos with a AS L60 leveller. After reading your post I am intrigued by your use of a gimbal head. Besides the weight do you see any other benefits of the...

    Fun with Medium Format FILM Images!

    I normally shoot street art on film with one of my MF cameras, but living in Queenstown NZ and with restricted travel, I haven't had much opportunity to shoot any street art. So I bought a Rolleicord Vb III and thought I would have a play with double exposures. Have always loved Rolleis. This...

    907x 50c now available

    I agree totally on the nostalgia and design aspect of the 907x, it makes me happy everytime I take it out of the bag and being extremely kinesthetic I really enjoy just holding it. In use it is the perfect camera for my long exposure work.

    Fun with the Hasselblad 907x

    I took my kit for a hike to a local viewing spot over Moke Lake near Queenstown. The 21mm handles this type of vista really well I feel. I was trialling my new H&Y drop in NDs and this was a ~6m exposure with the 16 stop drop in.

    Fun with Medium Format FILM Images!

    I hope to contribute again to this thread soon. After being sidetracked with my 907x I am back with a film buzz again and a little Rolleicord Vb series III just landed on my desk. Rolleis have always been my favourite film cams and I see a series of double exposures coming up.

    XCD lenses... wow.

    I use the 21mm for my long exposure work. It can get a little funky on the edges in the skies depending on direction and intensity of the sun and how many filters I have stacked, but all in all it is an amazing lens considering how wide it is. I am a tripod guy and my kit is 21/45/120 and none...

    Lens recommendations for CFV50c II on Actus G

    Apologies if this is the 90th lens recommendation thread but I can't seem to find anything out there for my situation. I currently have the X1D on my Actus G and find the lens restrictions at the wide end frustrating. I fell hard for the 907x/CFV50c II and am on the waiting list. I live in...

    Mamiya Sekor 50 Shift on Actus XCD

    Does anyone know if the Mamiya Sekor 50 shift will focus and/or have movements on a Actus XCD with standard rail and bellows? At present my widest lens is the SK72XL and I generally carry the Mamiya as well in my bag, so wondered if it might work with the Actus? Rather than buying a lens plate...

    West Palm Beach, Florida

    I don’t want to offend anyone but I am heading to West Palm Beach, Florida in late July for a couple of weeks training for a new business I have bought. Would anyone be able to tell me whether it is safe enough to carry my X1D? My normal style is early morning near water, under bridges or near...

    Short-Mid range 3rd party tele options for X1D

    I had a life changing event at the start of October and as such I looking to change my photographic style to something a little safer. On Oct 6th I had a 10m fall onto sand here in Auckland while out with my X1D/30mm. Unbelievably as I fell I placed my X1D on the cliff edge so it survived. 8...
