    Me too - I'll be there Saturday and maybe Friday evening for dinner. Unfortunately work commitments and physical distance from SLO & RRS killed playing on Friday.

    Re: Capture Integration in CArmel - formerly Pigs in a Blanket

    Thanks Ken and Don plus of course the great support of our trusted dealer Capture Integration - Dave & Christine Gallagher and Kristen Alexander - for making it an enjoyable and informative long weekend.

    Ken - as usual, you 'enabled' ... And now I'm waiting to try my own tethered Surface Pro.

    After having the chance to shoot the Alpa FPS with IQ250 I'm very impressed with the future of technical cameras and digital backs. Luckily I'm not in the market for the new CMOS back at this revision but the live view was the real deal and was a perfect combination with the FPS. Now the Alpa ... Ok, I can see one of these moving from my lust list to my want list. Err, thanks Dave G for bringing this to try, I think!

    Also, it was very enjoyable meeting up with some shooting buddies and new faces trying medium format and Leica gear over the weekend.

    If you are at all interested in trying out a variety of medium format and high end digital gear in a relaxed environment I can highly recommend one of CI's events around the country. An enjoyable location and experience plus access to a collection of gear in one place to shoot and assess all in one place.

    Until next time.

    Re: Capture Integration in CArmel - formerly Pigs in a Blanket

    Thank you very much for the kind words Graham.

    I'm currently sitting in a hotel room in Barstow after driving all day from Carmel. Next stop is Valley of Fire for a couple days.

    I wanted to add on thought here. Capture Integration is also a new Sony dealer! Christine will be our go to person for everything to do with Sony so give her a little while to get her feet wet then let her help. Sandy is getting her 24-70 tomorrow and we plan to touch base with Christine when the 70-200 is released.

    I know I'm biased however I feel you couldn't find a better dealer than Capture Intergration for sales and support.

    Christine is the best. You say, "jump," and she asks, "how high?"

    Re: Capture Integration in CArmel - formerly Pigs in a Blanket

    Thank you to everyone who could make this year's 5th Anniversary, Capture Integration in Carmel! We were pretty packed with twenty people in attendance. It was great to be able to try out some new equipment, and try out new approaches, good food, drink, and great company.

    All I have to say is the IQ250 is for real. It's a great option especially for those new to medium format digital photography. The live view option is very DSLR-like and usable. All the early nay-sayers who criticized this MFDB without having even held it owe the lead Phase One IQ250 engineer an apology!

    The IQ260 Achomatic---wow. I used this MFDB on my Cambo tethered to a Surface Pro 2, which makes everything just stupid easy.

    Thanks to everyone who attended the Carmel shoot. Thanks to you guys being so nice to me, yesterday Dave took all of my money when I purchased the Cambo starter kit. Now you'll have to put up with me at future gatherings of the group!

    Sorry that I left after lunch to make the 5 hour drive home. I still work for a living and needed to be ready go first thing Monday morning.

    Thank you, Ken! You are the best host ever!

    This was my first tech camera shoot. I came away with 4 images that are the post processing and printing house. The images are darn good for my first try.

    Thanks again to everyone in the group. I am really pumped up about shooting tech cameras.

    Best regards,
    Jeffrey

    Welcome to the GetDPI family, Jeff! I think you'll find the forums here a valuable resource for all things medium format digital.

    If what you have purchased is what you call "the Cambo starter kit," I'd hate to see what you call the deluxe technical camera kit!

    Jeffrey,

    Dave taking all of our money has a very familiar ring about it!

    Enjoy the Cambo. A great choice.

    Even more likely if you'd seen John's photo of Graham lying on the beach next to his tripod.

    Graham is not afraid to get dirty. Why I love his enthusiasm for photography and besides that he is damn good to boot. Lol

    I thought he was figure modeling for John.

    If Bob attended this year, I'm sure he would have convinced Graham to take off his shirt....

    Lack of rise/fall on the Alpa FPS had me going old school and setting up the camera low for the foreground and the only way to really get to grips with the IQ250 live view was to get down low. As Stephen mentioned, yes, I was wallowing around on the beach. No designer jeans and jackets for me when I'm shooting that's for sure! If I'm not dirty, I'm not happy

    That would so NOT have happened unless his pockets were very deep or it was a flesh pics for camera trade (hey, we're all whore's at some point)

    Re: Capture Integration in CArmel - formerly Pigs in a Blanket

    The starter kit means that I only purchased one lens but included almost everything else. Now under serious consideration is a Surface Pro 2 which I am reasonably confident will become part of my tech camera package in short order. It is all great fun thanks for the Carmel group guys (and gals!).

    Re: Capture Integration in CArmel - formerly Pigs in a Blanket

    Shot in Carmel over the 4th of July. Foggy and cold. However, thanks to the pigs in a blanket group I learned enough to have a blast with my Cambo camera. Ken helped me out while there. Thanks, Ken. I did though look like one of Jerry's Kids (you know the ones they have a telethon for annually?) while I assembled my rig for the first time including a Surface Pro 2. Let's see, where does this cable connect, and what the heck do you do with this thing? Oh it was a barrel of laughs. See you guys next year at the pigs shoot.
