    Phase One P40+ Oregon Workshop Images

    Morning folks Jack and I are on our way up Oregon but along the way we stopped and shot a little yesterday. I wanted to start a thread on just the P40+ on this trip since we really have not seen a lot of images from it since it is fairly new. So thought it deserved it's own space but the reality is this back is actually in my mind a bargain. For a 40 mpx back starting prices at least listed it is 19 k and if I remember correctly when the P45 + came out it was higher priced . Maybe Dave or CI crew can talk about that more but for me this is just one appealing factor besides it is a killer back with sensor + and a whole list of new features. Anyway just thought I would share some and will continue to use it on my way up. The P30+ is sitting patiently in my bag but I just want to shoot this. Having the P30+ for awhile now I really don't need to compare visually anymore I know what it does. Just want to see what I can draw from the P40+. I already know this is a killer back, maybe I just need to push my pocket over the edge. LOL

    In a way i hate these workshops with CI and I only mean that I get to work with all these great backs and my pocket starts having heart spasms. But seriously for me it is the only way to get to know these backs and make sound buy decisions.

    Anyway enough 4 am rambling

    These are shot with the 28mm at some long exposures like 8 seconds or so. Have to look at the Exif

    Well almost did it handheld at 1/15 at F8 . Yea it's me but still a decent shot . The second one is wide open. Between wind , coffee shake I should have grabbed the tripod. LOL

    Try to get some nicer images today as we hit the coast. But what beautiful country up here. I never been up this way and I have seen most of the country but this is enjoyable for sure.

    Guy,
    I think there's going to be a very new P30+ up for sale soon.

    Re: Phase One P40+ Oregon Workshop Images

    Henry this is a sweet back, hate to even admit it. That is just trouble for me. LOL

    Also I think Phase has fine tuned the profile more than the last time I shot this back. More images needed to be shot but so far I can see improvements from when it first hit the street. I admit I am cheating here as well I have C1 version 5 beta on board my computer. Big improvements to the program.

    The one thing is I know buying new of the Phase backs this is actually maybe the best pricing on this back compared to the others. Not saying the others are bad but this seems to be the bargain back in price.

    Guy,
    whatever you do, don't hand the back to the CI crew after the workshop. Just go home with it until they can arrange for your new unit to reach you. LOL

    Hope you enjoy the workshop as much as the participants.

    Perfect....Guy, just print up a small "P30+" sticker and place over the "P40+" label on the back...

    ....and make sure you get to the CC bill BEFORE she does

    That failing, get some padding and just take the beating.....it will only hurt for a little while, and you can spend the recuperation time playing with all the great shots and planning more gigs. Let's call it a "hard win" when you bring that P40+ home

    In my experience there is often not much of a beating, but rather an "equal time for the crime" sort of punishment. That makes a $19K back run just $38K... if caught.

    Jewelers love when guys make this kind of blunder. Or in some households it may be the other way around if the photog is the wife... so the husband gets a fly-fishing trip to Argentina.

    Guy,

    It's not even $19K. This time around you have a P30+ to trade so it'll be more like $9k. small change like that won't show up on your CC bill as prominently

    I like this shot also. My only nit to pick is that the distant birds in the sky are blurred from their flying motion, and that looks just a tad distracting for what is otherwise a very nicely 3D detailed shot.

    Keep up the shooting and sharing. Love seeing this stuff.

    These shots with the 28mm are holding some nice color and saturation that is looking quite nice. Not sure what is in that new "soup" from C1 Pro 5, but it is doing a nice and tasty job here

    Yea I noticed that too LJ. Luckily I have about 6 of those shots to pick from. This is a very nice back indeed . Has a load of detail in the files and the skies look much better now than they did before . The profile is certainly better now. I hear these are selling very very well . I can see why.


    My Elinchrom Quadra pack shows up tomorrow so look forward to trying that with the attendees
    Really nothing holding me back except money. I do notice a little diffraction though around F16 so need to be careful. Anyway beat up heading for a pillow. Have some nice sunset stuff to post maybe early in the morning.

    When I get some winners this week I will use the gallery. These thumbnails make it easier for the Iphone

    The Marine shots are in Chetco

    Here are a couple more more for fun. Jack and I are really scouting these two days to find some nice spots for folks to shoot. Sunset here is just south of Gold Beach

    Doing very little to these files BTW just want folks to see what this back can do without me being to artsy.

    Tightrope or Gordian Knot? LOL.

    So, you are not doing much, if any tweaking of files from this P40+ back? If that is the case, I have to say that things are really impressive. Nice depth of color and good transitions. The new profiles for it are turning out some very nice files. There seems to be a bit more richness to them. No other way I can describe it. Stuff is looking very nice.

    Great shots Guy, thanks for sharing.

    As if it was not in off that I'm trying hard to keep the P30+, now you want to stick in our heads the P40+ uh

    Wish I was there with you guys, really could use a break from Vegas I tell you.

    I wonder if it might be better to shoot with Helicon Focus in mind rather than the older approach of shooting at apertures like F22 which is beyond the diffraction limit? I haven't personally done much with Helicon Focus yet but I saw some shots from Doug Peterson at our summer workshop that worked dramatically well. It would be great if someone with real skills could do a comparison between an f22 shot of a scene and then do a four or six shot Helicon focus based shot to see if the files are degraded in a noticeable way using this software.

    Woody I like helicon focus a lot and it is a better way to go if all things fall into place like no movement going on. I will do one again this week and show you. We did this a couple times on the workshops and it really is a great tool to work with but yes getting to F16 can cause diffraction and as the pixel pitch gets smaller it becomes more of a issue as I noticed with the P40 with 6 micron and talked to Dave and Doug about that last night. Some shots like the early morning shots I got away with because not a lot of detail anyway but certainly ran into it with the trees. So care is needed

    I just checked the technical specs on Phase One site and it shows the P40+ compatible with wide angle & technical cameras.
