    Rob,
    That is a fantastic shot. I love the on-the-ground action that you captured.

    He was wearing a firemans suit with Nomex underwear, balaclava and helmet to be that close.

    Ben, those are stunning architectural shots --- look like they were taken with a view camera! (That little 15 is an impressive performer, isn't it?)

    Thanks Jack, It is an impressive little lens. It will out perform my nikon 12-24. I have the CV12 now and I think it is better yet! I should of posted these shots larger, I sized them down to about 2-1/2 megs.. What is a good size to post on the forum - where it shows the image at it's best? Ben

    Yes I agree, the little 12 is even better

    You can post any size image you want, then the posting software limits the initial view to 900 pixels. If the reader desires, they can then click on it and get to the full size as uploaded. As for what's best, I find anything more than about 1200 pixels gets cumbersome to view and moreover, it gets near to being high enough quality it can be screen captured and printed calendar quality without your knowing it...

    Cheers,
    Jack

    These look great Ben . Nice thing is the distortion is very low. What also is amazing is it is a 350 lens and I think the 12mm is even better also.

    Re: Fun time / M8 images

    Little commercial shot I did two days ago. This was 2 minutes after I smacked my head into a door frame climbing a ladder and i compressed my neck. Head hard as a rock which is no surprise but who said this stuff is easy. Have to say love the M8 but sometimes on a pressure cooker it can be a bit frustrating when it comes to getting everything lined up perfectly. But the files just make it worth the extra effort.
    50 lux and processing over 200 raws from a 600 shot day. BTW went through 1.5 batteries which is not bad considering a load of chimping

    Outstanding commercial shot Guy --- great exposure balance and perfectly composed with the truck readable, though slightly oof in the background!

    Re: Fun time / M8 images

    Thanks Jack , yea just a little different looking . The truck was the key otherwise it would not have worked as well. here is another with strobe fill outside . i use a Dynalite sine battery setup to power my strobes . Love this unit for outside work since i can use my studio strobes. http://www.dynalite.com/fxp1100_n.html

    Here is one you can't even notice the flash. I'm lighting on very low just to add to it.

    Re: Fun time / M8 images

    Great when you have a completely overcast sky which in this case was very flat so it gives you a little punch. What i would like to see us do on the forum is get folks out there shooting with strobe to give just that extra pop that we run into. You know that M shooters don't use flash or tripods is such a bad statement we here much to often and is never the case. Tools help the photography result and tripods are vital and so is strobe when used correctly.

    Not really , have to use the recovery a little more than I want since the skies are wash out than a touch fill and a touch black but yes they do have some real punch to them. Here is another with the 90mm Summarit at f4 with a little strobe fill.

    Guy - I would love to see one of those jet cockpit shots made with the CV12. It would be interesting to see the comparison to that shot you have in your gallery. Was that made on roll film or 4X5? Ben

    Re: Fun time / M8 images

    Yes you can it can handle a 1200 watt Acute pack for sure. I have used that quite a bit even with 2 heads running 600 watts each. Now you can get without a doubt about 140 full power shots off. Which is pretty darn good and you can also buy a second battery and switch out. Now they cost around 1100 dollars for the unit but you don't have to buy special battery units which given the power and speed are not exactly cheap. You can get 3 or 4 second recycle times so if your doing normal stuff that is pretty cost effective. Obviously if a fashion shooter than maybe the gas generators would be a better choice or go with battery units. The nice part is you keep the amount of different systems down to one setup for everything AC and DC than one or the other which I like and certainly saves money overall.

    Perhaps you could do a lighting demo in Moab. I think Andy and Jack would volunteer to carry the gear up the trail to the Delicate Arch

    M8, with 35mm CV Ultron: wildlife camera!

    Possum!



    I must confess to a sincere, if sentimental, attachment to possums. This one is about the size of raccoon and has a wooly white undercoat with long silky guard hairs and shows no inclination to haste, even when bothered during supper. His manner is one of a shuffling amiability, as opposed to the casual waddling menace of a buck raccoon.

    M8, CV Ultron 35mm, ISO 1250, processed in LightZone. LZ is brilliant for turning noise into film grain, IMO.

    I find it excellent that you have no flash reflection in the eyes. Normally they blow out whitish or greenish in this kind of shot.

    I think it has a lot to do with the Vivitar 285HV- it does a fine job of diffusing the light and since it sits up quite a bit from the lens, red eye (or green eye) is minimized. I love 'em.
