    The important thing is taking the time to see what those files Steve posted will actually give the artist who is working within the constraints of the digital files that are actual images. I will find some time soon, hopefully, after I finish my current project and before I return to the much larger project that needs to be completed by June.

    Dave, you can of course download a 30 day trial of Capture One, and then you would have a more accurate basis for what I was seeing in the testing.

    Re: fat pixel digital backs

    Just found this forum and thread. It's great to see so much interest and success with this old gear.

    I've been using Hasselblad 500 c/m with P25 for about 6 years now, so thought I'd share an image. I recently printed this 30x40" on Hannemuhle Photo Rag and it turned out fantastic.

    I can't answer your question but both Joel and I think the recent posts from new member "ukclippingpath" don't make much sense to us and at least miss context and are posted in the wrong thread. Or they are posted by some kind of spam-bot.

    In cases where this happens it's usually better to "report" the post to mod/admin and not react in the thread, but that's probably my personal preference being an administrator of another forum, where this saves us a lot of work since as admin/mod you don't have to scan all new posts but can rely on a post report coming in for shady new entries.

    Re: fat pixel digital backs

    Thanks, for the Dandelion!!! Very nice and confirms my cursory review of two images I downloaded from Steve Hendrix: my impressions of the images from fat pixel backs is that the difference is in color, contrast, richness, and smoothness. These are all dependent on the processing of each image by each individual, but so far, I am pretty certain that given a fat pixel raw file, as I used this morning, the results are different in a good way, from those of newer digital backs.

    Magic? Or, could it simply be aesthetically different? It is the same either way. So, given the world in which we live, we can all use a little magic, so let's stick with the term "Fat Pixel Magic"!

    It is actually a tip of the hat for the designers of the earlier backs... my respect for them is immense.

    Now, what could be more fun with a relatively low cost than an H body with fat pixel back? Or a V body with a.... or a... well you get the idea!

    Re: fat pixel digital backs

    The two images from Steve Hendrix that I processed using my own personal protocol, are terrible quality JPEGs below. Somehow, the files just did not want to load at the usual size or resolution, but...

    The first image is from the IQ180, with minimal adjustments in LR, utilizing increased White setting, lowered Highlights, and not much more than making sure the clipping was minimized and sharpness added.

    The second image is from the P25. Similar adjustments were made in LR (slightly less) and final adjustments including sharpening were made in PS.

Views:	25

ID:	141403


    So, how did the images respond to my processing?

    *** Note: Apologies for the low resolution images. But the differences that I see are not so much in resolution, but in color, vibrancy, richness, contrast and shadow details. Others may strongly disagree with my results and that is fine, and expected. My approach to evaluating how the raw images would respond to my personal workflow is certainly different from almost everyone I know.***

    Every individual has unique preferences in processing and final results.

    The P25 has a charming character that I generally prefer, but then I do prefer darker images over high key. I also prefer rich colors snd contrasty images in general. In the processed P25 image, the greens are much more natural, to me, but others may prefer the yellow-greens prevalent in so many CMOS sensors these days. I personally find them unnatural and unappealing. I have the same yellow-green issues using Velvia transparency film, too.

    That said, the resolution in the raw files indicates that larger prints will obviously result in larger printed images with the 80mp digital back. Nothing new there.

    The images posted above were re-sized to 8x12 and the difference in resolution was not visible... until I re-sized for posting in the forum. Both images then became low resolution facsimiles.

    It would be wonderful to see others process Steve's images using their own workflow and posting the results for discussion.

    Bottom line: There is Magic! And it can be found in your images, regardless of what gear you use. How that Magic appears is up to you!

    This is a very nice comparison and I can clearly see the difference too. Excellent demonstration. I am heading outside with my Mamiya ZD back even though it will be rainy and the weather quite cool. No summer yet in Finland.

    There is not much choice in transparency film these days, but I prefer Velvia to Ektachrome for most nature photography. What I have problems with is that scanning without deliberate color editing can't neutralize a magenta in slide films. The blue is too strong too. The magenta cast can be corrected, but not the blues.

    Another one with P25, there is a lot of detail in the original file.

    I recently bought a Hasselblad 500C/M with a chrome 80mm Planar lens. I stuck my P30+ on it and was very pleasantly surprised at the micro contrast from this 30-year-old camera/lens combo. Great stuff.

    Re: fat pixel digital backs

    Once again, I return to the Fat Pixel backs!

    One of my favorite artists is Pierre Pelligrini and he does amazing work with, you guessed it! Yep, a P20+ Phase One back.

    Here is an interview with him and you can follow his work via the links.

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/minimal...017/03/22/190/

    My takeaway:

    Whatever you use, it is the gear between your ears that makes the biggest difference!

    Anyone have a Fat Pixel Back they are not using? I think it may be time to really get to know it.

    Or... send it to me for exercising it once a year in care of "Dave's Ultimate Fat Spa"!

    Long exposures on a P20???

    I am trying to figure out how to do long exposures on a P20 on a Hassy 553elx. There is no lens with a shutter to speak of as I am trying to use a pinhole on a 32mm extension tube.

    short latency? Long latency? Wake up signal to the sync cable? Is the PhaseOne wakeup cable necessary ($100) Momentary switch or continuous switch?

    I know it is an old small back but what the heck, my Hassy is getting very lonely. ~TEU

    Re: fat pixel digital backs

    Hi all
    got the opportunity to buy (at a very low price) a P1 645AF+80/2.8+Aptus 22

    Knowing the pro and con's of this digital back, i think i'll go for it.
    I've taken a pair of shot, just a couple of question:
    - are the P1 autofocus reliable? maybe it was my fault but looks like it's not very accurate
    - is a little backlash (~1mm) between the back and the camera normal (it rotate a little once installed)

    Just saw this... perhaps you can get an answer from a dealer near you.

    Here, I usually call Capture Integration for questions, but any Phase One dealer should be of some help.

    You probably found the answer by now, but the P20 doesn't capture for very long exposures. It wasn't until the +-models came out (i.e. P25+) that long exposures became possible.

    bought it, and found this....
    the Aptus is working well (except for the internal battery.....).
    The backlash was due to the hook latch. The right one was a little bended upwards......just a little pressure seems to have fixed it all. No light leaks and the focus plane seems ok.
    Unfortunately, i was correct about the front-focus....the autofocus was a bit off. Looking at some videos on youtube, i found where the AF modul is located, tried a little adjustement on the module screws and it seems that now the AF is right on the central spot.
    Not yet used with some serious shot but the image it gave looks pretty nice.

    great image sahotar, awesome colors

    but one little advice, focus on the eye that is closer to the observer/camera, thats the eye someone looking at a picture looks first, and then you see a slightly blurred eye
