    I'm using Flexcolor, but to be honest I don't know if it's the latest version. I'll have to try a higher ISO.

    The latest Flexcolor is 4.8.4, but I think the improvements may have come in 4.8.1 or 4.8.3. All the latest revisions were just to support some of the new Hasselblad cameras and lenses.

    Wonderful image Doug.
    I get good results underexposing the DMR at ISO 400 but not so at ISO 800, but I am using C1. Have you had success underexposing at 800 and I wonder if using Flexcolor is the key? Rob?

    A shot from the Green River Overlook from the trip to Moab. R9/DMR + 80mm @f/8 handheld. This was after we went to Mesa Arch where it was a bitter cold morning.

    I don't ever use the underexposure trick. I have not been convinced it works or actually have tested it myself. I am not sure if some people are actually under exposing by two stops and getting really dark files or if they are just dialing in -2 for exposure compensation.

    For just straight 800 and 1600 iso, Flexcolor seems to do the best jop if you play around with the noise reduction settings.

    Re: DMR Image Thread

    I just ran a test in my backyard with the DMR, shooting with the 1600iso setting and then shooting at the 400iso setting at the same aperture and shutter speed. This meant the 400iso shot was underexposed two stops. Using Flexcolor, I moved the exposure slider two stops on the 400mm shot.

    It looks like the underexposed 400iso shot does not have any more noise than the 1600iso shot, but the under exposure seems to loose some fine detail and the pushing in post more of the highlights clip. If you look at the crop into the slide, you can see that the surface of it is more over exposed in the 400iso shot than the 1600iso shot.

    These are my test shots. I used a tripod and the shutter speed was 1/8000th of a second, so any detail difference can't be camera shake.

    Here is the 1600iso shot.




    Here is the 400iso underexposed two stops and pushed two stops in Flexcolor.

    Asolutely! Not to take away from the little one (but they are all cute, and I have a tonne of them ) what impressed me here was how the 105/280 painted the image, esp the branches (don't tell my daughter, but it was the row of branches that I was most interested in.) The 105 does a marvelous job without totally distracting from the main subject.

    I wish I knew what is was, but this lens, though not as sharp at 280 as the 280/4 has a special look that I like and others do too. I guess it is not worth speculating (but if anyone knows, please pipe in!)

    Just sorry I waited 40 years for the lens

    Doug: Wonderful! The translucent ears from the light, the grass in the mouth, and the expression looking to see if everything is safe, nicely done.

    Victor: Nice capture. I like the spirit of this photo.

    Rob, I used to use Flexcolor about two years ago but found the interface a bit cumbersome. Having seen your shots, I thought I would try downloading the latest version which I see is now 4.8.5. Whilst accepting my registration and log in, it blows me out everytime that I try to download the software by saying that I am not authorised! There seems to be no way back to download an earlier version as it may be because the latest software needs 64 bit processing and I am using Windows XP? If so how do you get back to an earlier version?

    You may need to register again at the Hasselblad site. If that doesn't work perhaps somebody can send you a copy.

    From the GetDPI Carmel Workshop. McWay falls is on the Pacific Coast Highway a few miles past Big Sur. I think I used the 35-70mm for this one.

    From yesterday morning: the Acorn Woodpecker is best known for drilling holes (in trees, utility poles, barns, houses) for storing acorns but they have to do more mundane stuff too like drink water. This is an adult male who has dipped his bill into the pond (background) and is letting the water run down his throat.

    What adapter did you use for the Hassy 110 to the DMR? I am still awaiting the two adapters to use it on my D3 and Adorama still shows out of stock for these Novoflex products. I would welcome any advise to get this lens into use with my system.

    Victor - that is a nice shot and btw ( as a 4 marker ) that boy is a golf natural - the way he has his right elbow tucked in and is perfectly balanced for a turn - beautiful to see a naturally correct swing/turn

    had to lay on the ground for this,

    get his head out of the trees. Low up is interesting, but tough when the players are 3' instead of 6'

    also, when the game is boring (as it ALWAYS is) you are closer to a nap position!

    on golf, well in a few years, but you are right, keep the elbows quiet (works for level baseball swing as well.)

    My wife is coaching him. I am untrainable! :-)

    Yep, still my favorite lens in the line-up, followed by the 35/1.4.

    Woody - I was tempted to buy yours as a backup, but realized I haven't slipped down the slope that far that I need backup lenses, well not yet anyway.

    Marc - I have the 35/2 but I trust your judgement and opinion so I will have to look into the 35/1.4. What about the 50/1.4, does it also have the same look? What about the older 50/1.4 with E55 filter thread as compared to the latest version (E60)?

    The 35/1.4 and 80/1.4 are old time rock 'n roll, and have a certain character to them that's becoming lost with all the ASPH and APO lenses. More artistic, so to speak. I've not used the 50/1.4 E-60, but it is supposed to be wonderful.

    Re: DMR Image Thread

    I've got the newer E60 50mm lux and its very nice. Actually I also have a new copy of the 50mm 'cron too and there are subtle differences but they both have the same sharpness in terms of fine detail. I have been trying to decide which of the 50's to keep for a while now.

    Re: DMR Image Thread

    The new 50/1.4 has a very nice, gentle character to it. It is still quite sharp wide open, but it is not biting in any way. The bokeh is nice as well. I find that it is a little more "modern" than either the 35/1.4 or 80/1.4, but it is still not reminiscent of the harshness that lenses like the 28/2, 50/1.4 ASPH or 90/2 APO ASPH can give you. Here are some samples.
    I believe this was at or near wide open...if not totally wide open, then definitely wider than 2.8.

    This is fully wide open (and misfocused, but the bokeh is so nice!)

    Another, not quite wide open


    Well, sorry they are all from the same basic place...I just forget what else I specifically took with it...

    This trip the pelican is for clothing and laptop. Going carry-on and traveling light - so
    1 M8 with 12,21,28,50 and using Guy's 75 cron
    1 D300 with 50, 18-200, 24-70
    1 GRD2

    It all fit in the Domke J803!!!!! (OK small lie - the ginormous Nikon hoods are going in my other bag).

    This is a three image shift/stitch Pano from San Juan. I used the Leica 28m and shifted 10mm each way. The stitched file is over 6700 pixels wide.

    Doug - both are very nice but I like how the bird is framed by the curve of the waterline and the incoming wave in the second image. Very nice indeed.
