    The H4D will probably be okay, but bring a backup camera and extra batteries.

    Not recommended for the landscape/adventure photographer!

    Ask away!

    Take your time, pay more attention to the grip histogram than the LCD regarding exposure ... don't let the LCD image throw you ...what you see there and what you will see in Phocus or Light-Room is like night and day. It'll actually shock you.

    It will take time to get familiar enough with the rig to feel comfortable shooting at a wedding ... trust me on this, so don't get frustrated. Keep at it.

    Best of luck!

    If you have ever used a Leaf back you will take the histogram on the Hasselblad back for what it is. I find it of limited use. An indication and a really limited histogram compared to the Leaf. The Leaf histogram is pure histogram porn.

    I would normally turn on the overexposure warning and expose until that just clips a little bit.

    I find that a much faster way to work and pretty much a guarantee you are working ETTR.

    BTW, I am pretty sure the histogram is accurate. I find it simply too small and crude.

    I guess in the studio I don't use histogram. Sometimes there's a high key background, some times mid key, sometimes low key, sometimes outside, etc. However, when I go by the lcd instead of what my flash meter tells me, that's when I find I'm off. I believe more in my meter than camera. LCD just tells me is something is violently off, as I forgot to re-set iso or something.
