    I will start: Just MF stuff

    Phase One P25 Plus
    AFD loaner body until my new Phase One Body arrives.
    Mamiya 35mm AF lens
    Mamiya 55mm AF lens
    Mamiya 80mm D lens waiting on this also to come in my package
    Mamiya 150mm lens this is the current one , hope to replace with new D
    Mamiya 300mm 4.5 lens Just got this and very nice

    Horseman SWDII Body
    35mm Rodenstock Digitar Sironer lens

    Wish List
    Mamiya 28mm this is a maybe

    Re: Who has what? And wish list

    Here is my MF stuff
    Hasselblad CFV
    SWC 38 non T*
    500 C/M
    2000 FCW
    50 CF Distagon (non FLE)
    80 CF Planar
    100 CF Planar
    110 F Planar
    180 CFi Sonnar
    many A12 and A24 film backs
    PME51 prism finder

    Wish list:
    203 or 205 body, problem is that they are not made anymore and buying a used one can be dicey as they are $$$$$ to start with and $$$$ to repair. Up in the air on this one.

    350 CF
    1.4x converter

    I am very pleased with the IQ out of the CFV and I did not have to outlay a great deal of $ for the set, I am under $13K for the lot so far. It has been relatively painless buying into this system as the lenses are readily available and so are the 500 series bodies. When I started acquiring the Hasselblad stuff over a year ago, prices were really soft. Prices have gone up in the past few months, used gear does not sit in showcases for very long now.

    Re: Who has what? And wish list

    Here is my (current gear)

    Hassy 501 CM
    Hassy CWD (Anniversary edition 503 CW and CFV Back)
    203 FE (Trying to decide whether to sell this or have modifications to use the CFV back with it.
    40 CFE IF
    50 CFI
    80 CFE
    110 FE
    120 Macro Planar CFE
    180 CFE
    1.4x Teleconverter

    I will undoubtedly pare down this list as I gain more experience with what works for me.

    I really like the CFV back as well but am looking at going to the Aptus 75 to gain much more pixel density. Need to demo this to decide if it is worth the much larger cash outlay. I am very impressed with what i have seen from both Jim Collum and Doug Dolde's work with the A75 so I am encouraged. I tried the Phase P25 and while I liked the files the improvement over the CFV were just not enough to make the switch.

    Advice is always welcomed

    Woody,
    From what I understand, the Phase One backs need to use the flash sync on the leaf shutter lenses to fire the back. Not so sure about the Leaf Aptus, but most likely the same. I checked to see if I could use the Phase One on the 2000 FCW and because of the focal plane shutter was told that it would not work. So that would mean that the 203 FE would not work with them either. There is a company hat makes a cable release/sync cord that I am told will allow the use of the focal plane Hasselblads with various digital backs. Here is the link http://www.kapturegroup.com/imacon/imacon.html#4x4one_a

    The CFV is unique in the fact that Hasselblad uses the existing magazine trigger to fire the CFV capture. If you look at the menu for the camera selection the camera choices are based on the delay time for the shutter curtains to open and the leaf shutter to fire. Nice out of the box thinking.

    Hi Jack

    I have not physically looked at any of the high density backs at this point. However that is the next step. However my dealer is Sean at Camera West and he does not handle Phase backs. I bought the CWD from him and will probably trade that back for what I paid him for it in return for the Aptus. Also he got a great deal on a demo back from Aptus for me which is also a consideration.

    In the name of completeness I should probably call Lance at CI to see if I could borrow a P45 demo for comparison.

    Thanks for bringing this to my attention

    Best

    Re: Who has what? And wish list

    Seriously everyone should try as many as you can to get the feel of them and see what works best for you overall. Big decisions and Big money. You simply do not want to buy the wrong system for you. Sean at Camera West is a dear friend and this is not to take anything away from a Hassy sale but folks really need to try things out and decide.

    Re: Who has what? And wish list

    I am getting interested (someone save me please) in an arca F system and a digital back, probably the P45+.
    I just am not getting enthusiastic about high rez backs without swings and tilts, after all, I started in this game with 4x5.
    I might if I shot fashion, but I don't. Maybe I should

    Re: Who has what? And wish list

    Bob: Be advised that using movements with a 37x48mm back -- and hence focusing critically on a 37x48mm patch of ground-glass -- is really tough. First we need to assume the GG is at the exact same plane as the sensor and is true parallel to it, and it rarely is either, let alone both. However, if you get that, you still are making fine adjustments to optimize focus that are frustratingly difficult to evaluate on that small scale... Even with the 75x100mm rectangle of the Betterlight scanning back, I needed an 8x loupe to get close then always tweaked the final settings with the BL's live-view electronic focus. I have examples of the difference that 0.5mm of focus extension made with a 110mm lens at f22 on the BL -- it was the difference between crisp details in a landscape and just okay ones. FTR, that 0.5mm was just a touch on my Arca Swiss F Metric's focus knob...

    My current thinking is that using focus blending (software or manual layers) with a high-rez back that is mounted at true-zero on whatever camera you choose (including the Horseman SW-D or Alpa), is going to be more logical approach to focal plane extension than Scheimpflug with these MF DB's...

    Re: Who has what? And wish list

    I am also starting to feel the same as Jack on this one. I plan on trying the Helicon Focus software that a few other guys here have mentioned recently.

    I was planning to get a used Arca Swiss F Metric 4x5, but have had some trouble this weekend trying it out for the very same reasons that Jack mentions. I am using the head cloth and magnifier also to get what appears to be perfect focus on the ground glass. But when I check the shot, it needs a minor tweak.

    For those of us having gone through all the M8 rangefinder and lens adjustments, we know how much more critical the focus is. Nikon and Canon added fine focus adjustments as a saved setting for each individual auto-focus lens on their new bodies to eliminate this.

    For what I can do without any shift, the 80 lens with the small extension tube seems to be the right lens for me on MF. If this Helicon Focus works, it might just be a better and MUCH cheaper option for still product shots.

    Best,

    Ray

    Re: Who has what? And wish list

    503CW
    Phase One P20
    50mm Distagon CFi
    80mm CFE
    120mm CF Makro
    And a lot of accessories...

    At this point I'm happy with what I've got and not looking to make any investment.
    Eventually I'll get a faster combo to combine with my 503, maybe a P21-30 in Contax mount. But nothing "on the radar screen".

    Re: Who has what? And wish list

    Me:

    Mamiya 645AFD II = ZD back
    35mm
    55-110mm
    80mm
    105-210mm
    150mm
    300mm f/4.5

    Wish to purchase a better digital back, budget permitting. Will look at Phase and Leaf when the time is right. Then I could use the ZD back permanently as an infrared back, as well as a backup back if my primary back gives me problems. I am also wanting to do some tests on the 55mm and 150mm primes and how they compare against the zooms.

    It is a real dilemma. I agree with the logic behind your decision but it was the weight and bulkiness of such systems (hiking to landscape sites remember) that put me off 4x5 in the first place.

    I figured that I put up with no swings and tilts with the entire 35mm format so doing it with MF doesn't lose me anything and gains me the resolution I need for the large prints.

    There is no one size fits all requirements so pick and choose what you are willing to lose

    Re: Who has what? And wish list

    The one thing that gives me some thought now since I stayed with the 22mpx backs and did not go higher was if i need to pick up more overall resolution and be able to get even bigger was the Horseman sliding back which i can stitch fairly easy enough 3 images together and pick up the overall gain that way also. It is cheating per say but it does get it done and that is something that has some real value plus i have a sliding back for the normal shots also. So looking at the Horseman or Cambo there some real power there not to mention the extremely fine lenses on these sliding backs. I thought about selling it and getting the 28mm but really rethinking that with the Horseman because it solves two distinct issues. I'm waiting for all the parts to get it all back together so I can get out and put it too use. My lens was loose and it was off so that went back and waiting word on that.

    The Sylvestri Flexicam body may be a solution. One of my clients who just purchased a P45+ ordered one to try out. He is going to let me evaluate it when it comes in. The distribution of their products here in the states is lacking so it has been hard to get an evaluation unit w/o purchasing it upfront as a special order item.
    It looks like a great product on paper.

    Re: Who has what? And wish list

    Rather than list all the stuff, I am just going to post a picture from each medium format system. They're all film, though. If someone can tell me what's what, they get extra credit.




    (I suppose that counts as medium format)





    If anyone gets this one without reading the file name, I will be pretty impressed.

    Ah, I forgot the wishlist -- Hy6 with Sinar 33mp back. And a 110/2 in Rollei mount, a Hasselblad X5, some superachromats for the hassie...and an Aston Martin DB9, while we are at it. Of course, none of those is likely at the moment, least of all the DB9!

    The #F050 Flexicam (with fused bellows) is $2850.
    The #F108 Sliding Back for Flexicam (traditional V interface for a digital back) is $1595.
    The #F050 weighs 2.37 lb., or 1.008 kg. This is obviously without lens, or bay adapter fitting for lens (if required).
    Have full price list somewhere with all mounts and lenses. Will find it and post tomorrow.

In 2007 I was able to buy a cheep used eMotion 75, upgraded it to 75LV and sold to finance the SB 54H and a Rollei Hy6. We do a lot of copying work for my wife's gallery and some artists in Russia and 54H became the tool. We use the SB54H on the Sinar-m and I do not plan any upgrades of my multi shot sinarback. I am sure that the 22 mpx. resolution is more than enough for catalogues we do 4-5 times a year. Sinar-M is stable and fast. Before I used the Rollei X-Act and the Alpa for copying work and the Sinar-M system made my manual focus cameras redundant. I will definitely live with the Sinar-M and the 54H for a long time. We rent out the system pretty often and the rent fees help us to pay some bills.
    The Hy6 is my personal camera and I plan to upgrade the e54LV in the future (after PhotoKina?). I do not need a high density sensor for my purposes, I would like to buy a high sensitivity back to use on an ALPA handheld (I shoot 6x8
    Fuji NPZ 800).

    Re: Who has what? And wish list

    Hasselblad H3D-II/39 & Image Bank:
    28mm HC, 35mm HC, 50mm HC, 80mm HC, 100mm HC, 120 Macro HC, 150mm HC, 300mm HC, 1.7X HC
    2 CF Adapters to use all CFi & CFE lenses listed below:

    Hasselblad CFV-II digital back (purchased, but to be delivered):
    Primarily destined for the Hasselblad 203FE as it's the only back that works without restrictions or sync cables.

    Hasselblad 203FE:
    50/2.8FE, 110/2FE, 150/2.8FE, 250/4FE, 350/4FE, 1.4XE & 2XE, (also any of the CFi or CFE lenses listed below.)

    2 Hasselblad 503CWs and accessories:
    30CFE fisheye, 40CFE, 50CFi, 60CFi, 80CFE, 100CFi, 120CFE Macro, 150CFi, 180CFi, 350CF

    Imacon/Hasselblad 949 Film Scanner (same as current X5.)

    Rollei Xact2 view camera with Kapture Group sliding back in H mount:
    28/2.8 Schneider APO Digitar, 45mm Rodenstock APO-Sironar Digital, 90mm Rodenstock APO-Sironar Digital, Rodenstock 120mm Marco APO-Sironar Digital, Rodenstock 150&210mm non-digital for people work.

    (view camera focusing note: when tethered, Phocus software not only provides Live View, it provides audio feed back.)

    In the pipe line: but not finalized:
    Hasselblad CF/39 Multishot with iAdapters for a H2F camera; iAdapter to use it on complete Mamiya RZ Pro-II system (that's to long to list here); and a V mount iAdapter for the 503CWs. If this doesn't pan out, I will secure a Phase One P39 or P25+ in V mount.
    Also hunting for a second 203FE to convert for the CFV back, so I can retain full use of the E Film backs on the other 203FE body.

    Wish List:
    ALPA (someday )
    May upgrade the 40CFE to the IF version, and upgrade the 180CFi to a CFE version.
    Would like to eventually get Kapture Group Quad Stitch Sliding back for the Rollei View Camera... but this may be unnecessary if I do secure the 39 meg Multi Shot.
    Hoping Hasselblad delivers on the rumored T/S HC lens(es) ... also hope Hasselblad makes a Focal Plane version of the H camera.

    Remind me to break into your house one day Marc, it would be well worth the money for my flight and the thugs I would have to hire....

    Re: Who has what? And wish list

    My assistants mother just died and he's not working for me for the upcoming wedding season, he's sorting out stuff in a different city. I'm meant to be talking to a prospective replacement today, it's hard as I live in a different country than I work in and training people up over the phone isn't easy!

    However just to make you happy Thierry, I'll put 'knows how to use a crowbar' into the job description!

    Ben, if you and your team can get through the radio security system, break into the vault, ... and do it in under 2 minutes due to a local response time (I live right by the police station), you are welcome to it ... my insurance is paid up in full

    You've got a point, I'll just kidnap you instead, no hard feelings though right?

    Yep, I tried to sell my grandmother but what with the economic slowdown it's been hard to find a buyer.

    Can you focus at infinity with this lens, and are you using the Rollei recessed lens panel w/bellows? It's hard to find accurate info on this.
