fat pixel digital backs


Like it.

I recently purchased GFX 50s along with 45, 63, 45-100 and 110 lenses but still can not bring myself to put P25 for sale.
If you still have your P25, would you put up photos of the P25 angainst the GFX? They’re both fantastic cameras. Wondering how they look taking the same scene. I know cameras, lenses and even software are different .
Hi everyone. Long time listener, first time caller. Thought I would throw in some P25 images.

Sorry I'm a bit late to the party, but I'm currently using a fat pixel back (Sinarback 54M, 2004 vintage, I believe) with the Kodak 22-megapixel sensor in my portrait studio in West Orlando. It's hitched to a Hasselblad 553ELX, mostly shooting the 80mm/F2.8 CF Planar, the 120mm/F4.0 CFi Makro-Planar, and the 150mm/F4.0 CF Sonnar. And if I'm shooting tight head shots of someone interesting, I use the 180mm/F4.0 CFi Sonnar (a truly stunning lens). I'm very happy with the resolution, and the skin tones--most of my clients are black, because of my location, and it does a far, far better job of getting the skin tones right than my Nikon D810, which tends to make black people very orange-y without some rather strenuous correction.

If you'd like to see what it can do, here are a few full-resolution samples I've got stashed on my website. These have had a bit of Nik Sharpener applied to them, but it's just building on what's there. (I *think* this was shot with the 180 Sonnar and an extension tube.) (Shot with the 120 Makro-Planar--the same lens Platon uses, with his style of lighting.) (Shot with the 150mm Sonnar, wide open, with extension tube.) (Shot with the 120mm Makro-Planar and the Auto Bellows; this was a test shooting a coffee sack I have hung up on my wall. The area of the image is approximately 1.5 x 1.2 inches.) (This was actually shot with my first Sinarback 54M and the Mamiya RZ67 plus 180mm W-N lens; I had to sell the camera and the back to help fund my move back to the US. As soon as I could find--and afford--another Sinarback on my return, I snapped it up, but I use it on a Hasselblad here.)

Hope this conveys just what this old fat-pixel back can do in terms of portraiture. It's "only" 22 megapixels--but it's 22 *glorious* megapixels!

Glorious pixels indeed !

Very nice work. The color and rendering of those lenses V lenses is still wonderful as well.

You're a brave man to rely on Firewire and software that can't be updated, much less replaced should you need to.


Hola, buenas noches desde Girona.

Llevo ya unos 8 años utilizando CFV-16

Dejo algunas fotos sencillas, hechas con el CFV-16 edición firmado por Victor Hasselblad. Me averguenzo cuando veo "fotones" que han subido a otros compañeros. Pero ahi las dejo
