    horseman/CFV

    any advice on this pairing? is the cabling or shutter recognition a problem? i'm sure a few of you old bladd'ers would know, eh?

    thanks

    Look at the bottom and see if you have the flash sync cable . I think that is the output right there on the right side

    Here it is to buy

    It's simple. All you need is the flash sync cable that should have come with your CFV. One end into the top left port on the back, the other into the sync post on the lens.

    If you need the cable we have them in stock they are the same ones the Phase One backs use. I think they are $59. Give me a call if you need one.

    Re: horseman/CFV

    John, the proper sync cord came with the back.

    To use it you need to go into the menu > Settings > Camera > Sync

    The trick is to remember to set it back to the 500 when you're done : -)

    Re: horseman/CFV

    finally got out there with the horseman. it is challenging
    first, I found the viewer of not much use; no better than eyballing it. best for me was the 90 degree prism finder (blad) on the ground glass back. make sure you set the back to SWC mode.
    that worked extremely well...BUT: you have to take off the CFV back (careful of the sensor, find a good place to put it), that requires that you unplug the cable and pop off the battery (the battery interferes with the Horseman base if trying to tilt off the back to remove it. so battery in the pocket. put on the prism/ground glass. focus and shift. put the back back, (keeping your prism unit safe),the battery back, power up (make sure you locked the shift locks or it might move&%$%^#). remember to close the shutter; take the shot and chimp the histogram.
    now if you want to do a stitch, remove the battery and back, etc., etc.

    all the while at the Navy Yard, I'm trying not to step over the edge of a pier (i had one foot over the edge on a bumper a few times) or get run over with one of those giant cranes (they are creepy, fortunately noisy)
    or drop anything into the muck i'm standing in.

    now to go back to the blad...remember to change the back to 200...oh yeah, have to cock the shutter to remove a lens...etc.

    fun morning, though I'm still getting friendly with the horse

    John,
    Since you are using a square chip you can rotate the mounting plate in any orientation. I do not have too much experience with the CFV but it may assist you with mounting and unmounting the unit .
    Worth a try.

    Re: horseman/CFV

    i would have tried that, but then all the menus on the back are rotated also .
    i may make a modified tripod plate so the back can pop right off.

    John, it is images like this one that prompted me to get the Horseman too. When you can so easily combine four frames into a near perfect stitch at around 3x the native pixel count of your sensor, it sure makes one take notice. Excellent image!
