    I agree. Jim needs to share some of his processing technique with us. Boy are those just smooooooth.

    Agreed. There is an incredibly soft tonality across all the shots that almost makes them feel like they are just huge. Hard to explain, but it looks great.

    Also a fantastic contrast, both real and figurative, compared to Doug's shots that just keep throwing off one sharp detail after another when looking at them. This is very nice stuff for sure.

    Well it's all about the quality of the light for a lot of it but yes the Aptus does have nice tonal ranges

    I'm betting it mostly due to the lens and PP

    There are no ventilation holes on the Sinar eMotion series either, in case this is important to anyone.

    not all.. the pano series is Horseman.

    The Golden Gate sots are Mamiya 80mm and 150mm.

    The Fort Point inside shot is Zeiss 40mm Distagon

    Most of the Gladding shots were with the Zeiss 40mm Distagon as well

    I didn't have the Horseman at Gladding or Fort Point.

    Shutterblade has an Aptus 75S for Mamiya on Ebay right now. Would be a fantastic deal if it sold at the opening price. This will get Jack and Guy going

    Gee thanks for pointing it out to the whole world... No deal going to be had there for me now

    (I actually phoned them up and asked for a buy it now so I could maybe get it in Puerto Rico. Nothing doing they said, no BIN and no ending the auction early. Smart actually...)

    Neither are there in the H3DII series.

    Not that fans in digital backs are problematic. I have not had a single customer have a fan issue going back 5 years. They are well sealed off from any ventilation and provide a nice balance of cooling and "always ready".

    I was more just joking with you Doug, though I did call to see if there was a buy it now price... I would rather buy a high ticket item like that from a dealer I can work directly with like Steve . And after all, there will be upgrades (and probably blood!)

    you get any more lenses for the Horseman yet?

    Jim, I don't have a Horseman at all yet. That was the Contax 35mm Distagon. I think I am using Portrait 4 or 5 for the most part but still do some post on them in PSCS3 after running them thru LC11.1. I really do like LC11.1 though and get better results than with just ACR.

    Re: Equal Time - Leaf Aptus 75S

    Jack, That particular 75S doesn't seem to have any factory warranty left so that is a factor with the starting price. You can buy extra warranty from Leaf for I think $2700 per year though you have to send it in for an inspection first.

    I even had to send mine in to Leaf America for inspection to just get the warranty transferred (good thru 7/10/09). They run a few tests to be sure it's up to factory specs. I basically got about $3K worth of warranty for my $19K on the 75S. They only charge $90 for the inspection but FEDEX insured both ways runs that up significantly.

    hi Victor,

    The Dalsa sensor's "pulse-flush" design allows an instantaneous reset of the whole CCD and does not make it necessary to keep them in a sleep mode to avoid building-up of heat due to heating.

    Beside this, the Dalsa sensors do use considerably less power than the Kodak sensors.

    Sinar does not use a fan, but has a built-in "intelligent" power management which switches off the sensor as soon as the image is taken (no power on it).

    The APtus I believe has a fan for cooling. Does the Sinar as well?

    Dear Lance,

    with all due respect for these "extreme" conditions possible with Phase One backs, the real reason why a Kodak sensor has to be put in the "keep-clean" mode, is to avoid noise building up. This is quite different than a Dalsa sensor which can be kept in a so-called "pulse-flush" state (see below).

    Best regards,
    Thierry

    Yes, not quite as sharp as a schneider or Rodenstock would be. But then they are slower lenses

    yea, but sharp isn't effective in these images.. the contrast of this lens is what works.

    reality is seldom 'sharp' (especially at our age)

    no.. it's the FLE. From what i've seen, the IF is sharper, but the FLE has the smoothness. (.. and it's also cheaper

    Would be interesting to do a comparison sometime of the two and different apertures.

    Marc,
    Yes it looks good, but
    the perennial question
    what exposure?
    any NR?

    Maybe what we are seeing is that all the backs (and they can't violate the laws of physics) can go 1600, 3200 or even 6400 under the right circumstances.
    But lets see the color.
    and a 100% crop

    Victor, please don't take offense to this suggestion, as I am only trying to help you in your decision process. There is absolutely no way for any of us to post the exact test criteria you are looking for. The only way you can get that data is to shoot the actual tests you feel you need for yourself, or have someone do it for you, matching your decision criteria. Getting 100% crops on a web site is real nice to show work examples, but my friend it will do absolutely nothing for you in trying to conduct evaluation testing. Nothing. The web is just too restricted in resolution to be meaningful in displaying the actual image data completely. You need the files YOU shot, so that you know how you shot them, and why. You then look for the things you are interested in knowing, from those same test images. I wish there were an easier way, but there just isn't. The proof of the pudding is in getting your eyeball down deep and personal with it. Or you can hire someone to do this for you. But either way, it's really the only way you can ever choose the right product for you. Spending this much money, you certainly do want to make sure you're getting what you are paying for.

    Peter, the pixel peeping part does play a role, but honestly I am also of the old school that says the only real way to evaluate a camera is to shoot the dang thing until you know it like the back of your hand, pointed at real subjects, and done in real working conditions. If I do that with all the options, then I can honestly say I found the right camera for my particular work. My "test" images are images done for real, not some dang chart full of lines that really doesn't tell me much. Or worse yet, of a brick wall or whatever ridiculous subject that is just about as exciting as watching grass grow. The real world, what you can capture in your own unique vision using a particular tool tells me far more about what I can expect owing the particular monster. Spending this much hard earned cash, I'm for one not betting a red cent on anything but my own very refined senses holding and using the real thing. Sounds like I am not alone in this either, from reading your posts and a couple of the others.

    There certainly is something strongly to be said about seeing real photography shot in real world conditions, as opposed to looking at a crap set of "sample" photographs. None of which are ever done very well, or so overworked with sharpening they just make you sick. It should be easy to get every camera system to make decent images under ideal conditions. Taking one to the field, in the real world, now that tells me a whole lot more. Looking at the work of a working professional that is shooting one of these systems can speak volumes about what a camera can, and can not do.

    Cuck,

    you are absolutely right and my thoughts on this are 100% with you. My words when asked about samples are always "test it yourself, with real images in your real shooting conditions": that is this only relevant test which can give satisfaction.

    Best regards,

    Victor, this was grab shot on a RZ which is a sync cord set-up, so the only Exif Info captured was that it was shot @ ISO 800 using the Aptus back. I think it was with a 210 APO lens wide open, or stopped down just a bit. I deliberately underexposed due to the strong directional light from a window camera left and no bounce camera right (it was a spontanious grab shot just to show the subject, Paul, what a MF file looked like) ... then lifted it in Leaf Capture 11. No Noise reduction was applied other than the default settings in LC ... except I recall blurring the background a bit camera right-top to eliminate distractions.

    Really, as I said on the other thread, you need to get your hands on the gear and try it. There is no substitute. Preferably a demo with someone who know the system and software inside and out so you can see what's possible. I did that with my H system, did it with the Mamiya and Aptus back, and recently did that with a Leaf AFi in-studio demo.

    Re: Equal Time - Leaf Aptus 75S

    Chuck,

    No one who has been married for almost 40 years takes offence at ANY criticism! Your comments are spot on. Couldn't agree more.

    Marc,

    Of course, plan to handle. But I was surprised that more 'raw' files are not out there to view. Almost as if the back manufacturers were afraid.

    I suppose it's just time, getting lazy. Could I rent for a week? sure. Do I have time to play for a week? no.

    I did a lot of 'in silico' testing before I played with the various backs.

    And anyway, it is all just part of the community here. People are fairly open! why not take advantage. It's why I don't mind sending out takes raw to people.

    Now, I'm out of pocket for a while.

    I hope I can see the Hy6 and H3D this weekend

    regards
    Victor

    Re: Equal Time - Leaf Aptus 75S

    Chuck -

    I cant tell whether I will like using a camera 'system' until I have used it..these backs are all capable machines. I like the Hasselblad system - it was a difficult decision for me to give up my Leaf back and switch to Hasselblad - in the end I can assure you the decision was not based on looking at some raw files..

    In the end it boils down to a complex amalgam largely subjective and biased towards the preferences of the photographer..hasselblad isnt perfect the system as a package just works for me. I will be buying a Phase One back soon and some Mamiya gear but really i just want a Phase back to use with my Alpa - because the Phase back has a battery inbuilt in the body and wont interrupt my use of tripod - like the Leaf back did with its battery positioning. Likewise the blad has its battery in the grip and I LOVE that. Also it is a rechargeable battery system - I hate buying batteries.

    but I resisted blad till I had tested the Phocus software because i didnt like Flexcolour mainly because of its low res working files..now Phocus is here I love it..another plus
    for blad.

    Leaf was replaced for a more integrated system and because I was used to and liked the H system of lenses and access to V lenses etc.

    yep like you Chuck - its gotta be real world testing for me and I take a long time doing it. Doesn't bother me as photography has become my favourite hobby - my golf handicap has blown out to 7 !

    Re: Equal Time - Leaf Aptus 75S

    I took a drive up to the South Rim Sunday. There were still some nice clouds left from the storm but the canyon was full of haze. Never would have even taken the camera out had I been still using my 4x5. The Aptus 75S performed better than I expected, as usual. 3-4 pm light. I need to go lighter on the polarizer with this back or leave it off entirely.

    First, 80mm, f/11



    Second was a two frame stitch with the 45mm, f/8, 2 stop hard grad.

    any regrets with the Leaf? (none here.. i've shot some other backs, and i still prefer the look of the Leaf files)

    No regrets Jim. I am still getting a handle on using it well though. The hardest thing to get used to is just venturing to take the shot when I would have left the 4x5 in the bag.

    I agree they look really nice
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.
