    Re: Fun with MF images

    Just a fun shot from the Great Smoky Mountains Fall Tour in 2019.

    Sometimes, you just take a shot to remember something. In this case, I was scouting the next restaurant to visit when we return in the Spring. Despite the rain shower, I persisted in getting a handheld shot so we could plan our itinerary for the next trip.

    The Old Mill.
    Leica S
    Vario 30-90mm:


    PS: After months of using the S with the Vario lens, I can honestly say that it makes for a fantastic, versatile travel lens as well as landscapes and portraits.

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Heading back to Death Valley at the end of the month, this will be my second trip so I feel a little more prepared. I will be driving out from Arkansas and will have about 3 extra days and trying to decide what else I might try to see. Here is my initial list of possibilities, Page AZ area (Horseshoe Bend), Zion NP or the Eastern Sierra's. Any recommendations would be appreciated!

    Zabriskie Point, Death Valley NP

    Vik's Spirit

    Nothing beats the stark beauty of Iceland in winter, and the expressive power of long exposures definitely helps in creating a special mood. Vik's Spirit, 323 seconds of exposure with my Hasselblad X1D, Hasselblad XCD 45mm and Formatt Hitech Filters Firecrest Ultra filters.

    Photographed this archery competition in Nikko about a decade ago. These guys are amazing. They are riding at full gallop, and shooting at three targets about the size of a piece of A3 paper.

    Hasselblad H3D-39 with HC2.8/80mm.

    Greg, I'm envious. Death Valley is one of my favorite places for photography. There are so many possibilities in the park that it has taken me several days just to cover some of them. Beyond Death Valley, Alabama Hills is close. If you're going as far as Zion NP, consider Bryce. It's especially beautiful if there is snow on the hoodoos. Page (Horseshoe Bend, Antelope Canyon, etc.) is over-visited and may not be as interesting as some other less traveled sites. Enjoy your trip and share your photos with the rest of us.

    Joe, such a beautiful image! I am excited about Death Valley, my first trip I only had 48 hours, I will have 5 days this time. My dad always talked about how much he enjoyed Bryce, thanks for mentioning it!

    Steven, that is an amazing shot! The dunes are what I am most excited about shooting again. That was an unexpected surprise for me last time, I did not expect them to be my favorite.

    I agree, for me the dunes is what excites me about Death Valley. A couple more.

    Beautiful image. I hope there is some weather before you arrive in Death Value. Mesquite Dunes was so trampled when driving through yesterday I didnít even stop. Perhaps on the back side it will be better. I opted for Zabriskie Point as I only had a sunrise to shoot on my way to Lone Pine.

    Greg, that's a long drive..... I've done it numerous times. You may want to consider Canyon de Chelly which is not too far North of HWY 40.

    Have fun with your trip.....

    Kyoto Fall Scenes 2019 #11

    Back to Kyoto, bamboo forests are beautiful in Kyoto as many of you know.
    These are taken at not the most famous forest but you can get a good combination of fall color and bamboo green.

    Kyoto Fall Scenes 2019 #12

    These are commonly found or postcard composition in Kyoto but can't resist capturing typical yet beautiful scenes. In ideal condition, I should get a photogenic person on the stairs in second image but I guess I was lucky enough to capture no tourist in the image with a few minutes of wait.

    Jokulsarlon at sunrise

    The glacial lagoon at Jokulsarlon is a classic spot in Iceland, for tourists and photographers alike. And for a reason: it is just amazing to see the multi-coloured icebergs slowly and majestically leaving the lagoon heading towards the sea, where they will dissolve forever.

    Vieri Sir,
    All your pictures are really really excellent. Is it possible to reduce the size of your water mark and perhaps pushed to a side so that it is less in the way to enjoy your pics? But please carry on and you dont need to do anything if you dont feel happy about it.
    Regards.

    I hope you get good money for naming the filter manufacturer You use with every picture You show.

    Hello, the watermark is actually OFF the picture, on the frame. I wouldn't know how to push it more to the side. Best regards,

    Kyoto Fall Scenes 2019 #13

    I was lucky having opportunity to visit Enko-ji 圓光寺 an hour and half earlier than publicly open at 9:00am.
    The most pristine moment I experienced during my stay in Kyoto.

    Re: Fun with MF images

    I did not go out to shoot this morning, but looked out my office door and could see what was coming, so I grabbed my bag to try to at least capture something with this beautiful sunrise. This may be the last picture I take with my IQ3 100, I traded it in with Steve at CI when tempted by Phase One's year end upgrade special. While I have not owned the IQ3 100 long, it has been a great back, my first where I have not had a single issue. It is going to be a great back for someone.

    Yakui-gate 薬医門 at Komyo-ji temple 光明寺from east and west side. I had to run fast as soon as they open at 9am to capture the scenes without worshiper and tourist.

    Greg.... I hope you like your 4150 as much as your 3100. There's lots to like about both but for sure you are going to miss the incredible live view from the 3100.

    Happy Shooting.....

    Thank you Victor, I really struggled with the upgrade, I hope I do not regret the decision!

    I don't think you will, wait til you try frame averaging.

    As long as the frame averaged image is in focus.... The live view on the 4150 is widely criticized and rightly so. Frame averaging is a niche benefit. Focus is critical!!

    That said there are other benefits of the 4150 that you will appreciate such as exposure which takes a little learning but once you get used to it you will really appreciate it.

    Cheers....

    Interesting. I have yet to find OOF shots when using live view, not saying I am some sort of wizard or expert by any means, but my experience has been positive so far. I would prefer, of course, to have a version of Capture Pilot to lean on instead of using the screen on the back. Maybe we will see it some day.

    So much agree. It's just that the experience between the live view on the 3100 vs. the 4150 is dramatically different and inferior. That is not to say that focus, with a little practice, on the 4150 cannot be repeatably obtained.

    Capture pilot is a whole other issue.....

    Cheers.....

    Like many I was expecting an improvement in live view when I went from the 3100 to 4150. I wonder what went south? With 10X computing power and readout speeds they could have certainly done a much better job.

    If you ever get a chance look at the live view of a 7RM4. I own one and it is a dream to see compared to the 4150 or the GFX. It has the same generation sensor with the same pixel pitch as the 4150 and yet gets around all of the apparent visual live view obstacles.

    Thanks Victor,

    I am deciding on a Sony body, I am between the 7R4 and the A9. I will check them both out. I think that for a small travel compact the 24MP may be better along with the way faster ES. But you know how that goes, I may end up getting both over time if I am not cautious.

    I have both the Sony 7RIV and the Sony A9. I find my self using the 7RIV most of the time because of the additional MPX. Admittedly the faster focus of the A9 is a terrific feature, but the files arenít as malleable as I have become accustomed to using the please one IQ1-100 or even the Nikon D850.

    You were right, I love frame averaging! Please forgive me, it was raining so all I could do was step out the back of my office with an umbrella, but I had just opened the box from Steve at CI and had to try it. First is 1/25th @f8 ISO 50, Second 1 minute frame average, Third just a behind the scene.

    Victor, you were right on the live view, it seems to be a step backwards.

    Congratulations! I am glad you are enjoying it. I know the feeling of having to test new gear when there is limited time. I have shot the least interesting subjects here at work for such testing purposes and to scratch that itch.
