    Oh but you tease. None of the used equipment you have is on the new template built Shopify site web site that your wife built.

    Hasselblad XCD 28P

    So you're validating my point. Thank you :D I have the 21 and as Grayson mentioned the MTF looks very much like the MTF of the 28 and it never disappoints. But then I don't buy any lens based on numbers or MTF. I expect the 28 will be a great lens and its size a real benefit.

    Hasselblad XCD 28P

    What are the odds that they're releasing an optically poor lens ?

    Evelyn Hofer: view camera

    The standard lens on her Linhof Master Technica was a 150mm. Her street photos all have a very normal perspective and that's what a 150mm gives you.

    Any Hasselblad users just use Phocus and nothing else?

    So why not download the trial versions of all the apps you're considering and do your B&W conversion in each ? Affinity has a trial, Adobe offers trials and Phocus is free. See for yourself. Personally I would use Phocus to convert my HB raw files no matter where I intend to take them for...

    Any Hasselblad users just use Phocus and nothing else?

    I'm in the camp that believe you want to use Phocus to at least do the initial raw conversion. Their color science is not duplicated in any other application. If you want the option to do additional work on your images another consideration is Affinity Photo. It's very powerful, in some ways...

    Fujifilm 8mm f3.5

    Here's a brief but useful comparison to Fuji's short XF zooms by Gordon Lang. I love ultra-wides and this lens looks sweet !

    Fun with Medium Format FILM Images!

    Nice shot ! Those Minolta film backs are pretty rare. I've never seen one. :oops:

    Hasselblad discontinues the H?

    It's only worse when Leica is part of the debate. And to call it tiring is being kind.

    6x7 Film Holder with Arca Swiss 6x9

    The N is on the adapter, for film or a digital back. The film backs that Rod lists above will work on the old style film adapter or the N, current version. What Abruzzi meant is you can't use the N ground glass and a non N film adapter because the film plane will not be where you focused on the...

    6x7 Film Holder with Arca Swiss 6x9

    Well there's your answer for buying current the current AS adapter. It's nice of Rod to provide the info.. He's helped me out a couple of times. This is the vintage model that came on the 6X9 F C I bought in 1983. It fits perfectly on my F Classic, the current camera, as well. Of course it can...

    6x7 Film Holder with Arca Swiss 6x9

    I have the correct grafloc film adapter that I've used with 6X9/6X7 roll film backs for years. I'll take a couple of quick shots of it and upload them later today. FWIW I use the current N adapter for my CFV II and it fits perfectly. The grafloc film back adapter I bought 30+ years ago.

    Which Profoto strobes are you asking about and do they have HSS mode ? Have you asked other 645Z owners ?

    DIY ground glass mask, advice please

    I worked with an Arca Swiss 6X9 in the studio for decades and simply used a clear piece of acetate marked with a sharpie and taped to the ground glass to give me the formats. You can also buy a replacement ground glass with the format indicators.

    has anyone tried the Hasselblad CFV II 50c with tech camera?

    This seems like a good place to ask a related question. The Hasselblad flash sync cables that came with my 907X CFV II have 3 conductors on the mini-plug end, 2.5mm I believe. With an audio cable this is referred to as tip, ring and sleeve. So where can I purchase a backup set of these ? Or...
