    For B&W conversions I use the Nik Silver Efex Pro-2 plug-in for LR and also have it as a plug-in for PSCS5 if I want to also work in Layers.

    For color work, especially events and portraits I chose to load OnOne PhotoTools-2.5 as plug-ins for both PSCS5 and LR, but tend to mostly use the PSCS5 plug-in for the Layers option again. Lots of very nice Portrait options that are fast to apply and easy to control.

    When in LR Develop Module, I've selected PSCS5 and Nik Silver Efex as the "Edit-In" options from the top LR menu: Photo> Edit In > PSCS5 or Nik Silver Efex to take advantage of layers if desired.

    When done, the file goes back into the LR Library for that job. Everything is kept all together in the order it was loaded (time shot).

    Sounds complex when all written out, but is actually very fast.

    P.S, here is the dialog window that opens for PhotoTools 2.5 ...

    Thanks Marc, similar to what I use, but via CS5. Have you seen Alien Exposure 4 yet?

    RE: WHAT's FILM, Just yankin' your chain Fred. Love B&W film ... but not as much from a 645 camera. Prefer either gritty 35mm or tone rich 6X7 ... never cared for in-between all that much ... which is why I never cared if my 645 digital camera shot film or not.

    But I'm done with film ... finally tossed out all the darkroom stuff and will donate my Kaiser MF enlarger to some school or something.

    I know you were kidding... it's all fun and games!

    It was shot on the Fuji GX680. Largest format SLR available.
    The film is Panatomic-X

    here is a crop:



    I would really love to have a 44MP sensor that is twice the size of the P25+ for this camera. It would be simply amazing.

    I have yet to find a camera that I like as much as the Fuji GX680.

    Re: I finally managed to get a MF Digital setup

    Hey Guy,
    I have read that before. I completely understand that those are advantages to many photogs. I still think for myself and a large amount of photogs, having a 50mp Dalsa sensor with microlenses would be a killer solution. Have sensor plus with that as well, to allow shooting at lower Rez. Obviously a back with microlenses wouldn't be ideal for someone doing movements, etc. I'm not saying they should do away with the other options, just that this is one that would really fill out the line of backs nicely. There's obviously not 1 solution that's perfect for everyone. But this would be a perfect back for me.

    Cheers,
    Josh

    Yes it adds a valuable option to the back and that is a good thing. Technology like that is what us users want to encourage the OEMs to build. Useful options
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.
