    Forum Software Upgrade

    I'd be happy to pitch-in for making that option available. A years-old post at the top is "interesting," but it's a major pain to have to scroll down through pages and pages of past years to find the most current post.

    How Can We Help GetDPI Stay Alive

    Good idea! I didn't know the site was in trouble 'til today, Sep 15th, when I just happened upon this thread. Over the years, I've donated a few times, just to say "Thanks" but never got responses that the payment was received. I had to go to my online card account to see that it posted. I was...

    How to not get ripped off on Ebay

    Thank you, Kit, Weinschela and StephenGilbert, for your replies. I will consider it all, or just wind up selling it to Adorama or B&H.

    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."...

    Technical Camera use in landscape photography

    I use rise and/or tilt in about 10% of my images, but as far as being out in the boonies is concerned, there's nothing that I know of that's as small, light and straightforward easy to use as the ArcBody.

    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...
