Technical Camera Images

Following my post in the BTS thread, here are the final images shot on the digital back, both are crops made from single exposures as I felt that the rapid movement of the clouds and change of the light combined with the relatively long exposure would create artefacts in the sky so I didn't want to do any stitched images.

The film images will have to wait until I get home to get developed and scanned, hopefully at least one or two images would have worked out, I'm always nervous shooting high contrast scenes on film, even negatives.

Just a note, after the shot of the first image (which was a sunrise) I noticed condensation on my lens, but it was too late for me to re-shoot. I've tried to salvage the image as much as possible, but the highlight area's in the middle do suffer from it still, just a reminder that I should always leave more time to let the camera come up to temperature before I start shooting :facesmack:

The horizontal clutch mechanism on a vintage Roger Dubuis Chronograph Retrograde Perpetual Calendar. Linhof Technica at full extension, with Hasselblad CFV back, and Schneider Kreuznach 90mm f/9 lens. No movements applied, as the Linhof tilt is not geared and too difficult to make precise movements. Photographed at f/22. Full frame shown.

Hi Dave,

I've been posting images in the "Fun with MF Images" thread as it seems that most members have been posting there. But OK, I'll bite - here's the third and final image in a series from my latest and so far only successful adventure to the Marin Headlands to capture the fog rolling over the Golden Gate. This one took a bit of extra work: it's a flat stitch of a 5-layer median blend (i.e., I captured 5 successive images, shifted, captured another 5 successive images, blended each stack, then stitched).

Wow, John, that is lovely.:)

The amount of knowledge, skill, experience and just plain work involved in creating such an image is enormous and not many people realize that, so I must offer my appreciation. And I thank you for both inspiration and sharing yet another insight into your work!:):):)

Okay, let's try to animate this thread, although with something different from the beautiful landscapes and cityscapes you post here. :)

Still documenting the big mess of construction sites here in Berlin.
This has been taken with the Hasselblad 40 IF + CFV-50c Mk1 on a Cambo WDS with 11mm front lens rise. Color graded to my personal taste. No LCC applied.

I see that the inline image preview kinda ruins/defocus the image, click on it to see it the right way in the lightbox.

Thanks for viewing.

How about some banal landscapes?:)

Or... cat pictures? LOL...

I am really missing the tech cam posts and as we go into a long winter, it would be nice to see more images! Archived images would be fine...:)

The 40 IF is such a great lens...
Unfotunately mine has a broken shutter, and nobody can repair it.
At least I found one (after two years) to open the shutter.
So I can use it again without the inbuilt one.
Regards,
Ben

Ben,
there is a former Hasselblad technician in Germany who is usually up for the more difficult repairs. No website, just a name and contact details: Ulf Kühn, mail: [email protected] (he also has a Hasselblad email adress, [email protected] but is slightly more responsive on the other one). I had several repairs done by him, so it is a reliable contact.

Good luck!
