It's going to be three weeks before we get to try out the Hasselblad, contact me in mid June and we'll let you know how it's working out. A good friend might contribute a six year old wide screen Mac computer towards the effort, then we can run a FireWire cable in to do editing on their Capture One software.

This sort of reminds me of listening to a good import LP played through an analog tube amplifier.... and realizing that the old stuff we grew up with was actually pretty good. The digital music sounds.... thin. Damn, I wish I hadn't thrown out my old Marrantz 2270 back in 1989.
Thanks a bloody lot bringing up MF, look what I did today....

It's a used P1 654DF (previous model) and the P40+ with an 80mm Schneider Kreuznach Leaf Shutter lens. I also picked up a 45mm Mamiya lens. In the two years since I last looked the entry pricing for my minimum requirement had dropped something like 4000 euro to a price not much more than what I paid for my former Canon 1Dx which made it more palatable

Very nice! Post some pictures.

I really did buy our's for my wife, but I'm getting excited about trying it out myself. We'll probably start out with our 40mm and 80mm and have her also come over with a 2X extension. The price drop and the untethered shooting is also what gave me the idea to try again.

Frightening indeed! Where did you find this guy? Hopefully, none near the boat. Great photo. It is so clear.

I'm still fumbling around with the camera ATM so nothing worth posting yet.

One thing I have learned that will apply to you also, the raw files look substantially better "straight out of the box" in Capture One than they do in Lightroom. It's not surprising since it's a Phase One product. It is free for P1 digital back shooters but you have to pay if you also want to use it with other digital cameras.

Sadly, right now I don't have the time to really get deep into the shooting or learning C1 as my apartment needs to be empty and life packed away/thrown out by the weekend. I have at least made time to test that it all works.

Buying the P1 has resulted me in moving my ND/NDGrad filter collection and one studio light from the storage to the sailing collection

tnx guys It is a Panamanian crocodile and we estimate it 10' which makes it medium size. The picture is from the Rio Chagres, at Gamboa where it merges with the Panama Canal. They found 22'+ long ones at Lake Gatun because they aren't hunted anymore so grow big and old

The picture was captured with a Canon 7D with 100-400L lens.

Makes you be sure not to tangle any lines in the prop! Wouldn't want to be the one who draws the short straw

I actually once cleaned the prop with two of these guys around! I even trusted my wife enough with a shotgun to stand guard while I went in

That is real trust that her aim is good and that you haven't pi$$ed her off lately.

Re: Any Photographers with DSLR's Around ?

Caution: Rave Ahead!

Yes RAVE, not rant.

My beloved Nikon D600 full-frame DSLR developed the dreaded spots-on-the-sensor problem. This problem is well known and Nikon issued a technical bulletin some time ago, and offered to fix the problem for free.

On May 26 I hit the Nikon website, read about the recall, and printed a form and UPS shipping label. Packed my D600 body only in a small box and took it to UPS.

On May 28 I received an email from Nikon saying they'd received it, and would fix it for free.

On June 1 I called Nikon Technical Support and told them I was planning a long summer trip beginning June 19, and hoped they could speed up the repair. They promised to try.

Today, June 5, I received the camera back. They'd replaced the problem shutter, cleaned everything, checked everything, and restored the camera to new condition.

All at NO CHARGE at all, not even for shipping.

This is the way manufacturer recall's ought to work, and I can't say enough good about Nikon repair (in Melville NY) for the very professional and speedy way they handled my D600 repair.

END RAVE

Bill
