    Contax 645 Digital Back suggestions

    I am happy for any new Contax 645 user, even if only a temporary one. Alas, it is not the final cure to GAS… ;)

    Contax 645 Digital Back suggestions

    There will be noise in the shadows with a CCD back. A Phase One P+ Series back can be clean at quarter resolution mode. If that is not good enough, I suppose you need to look into a CMOS based back from Phase One. Look for the Phase One P series.

    Hasselblad XV Lens Adapter Questions

    Sad story. One wonders how they could run this endeavour for so long.

    Fun with the Hasselblad 907x

    In my experience, the 38 Biogon is an extremely potent lens even on digital. But it is difficult to achieve maximum DOF because the plane of what's in focus on digital curves like crazy at f4,5. Stopped down to f11, it gets well-behaved. To me it has a very transparent look. See example below...

    907x 100c - Phocus Mobile 2 - Top Overlay Crops Live View on Ipad

    As far as I saw evidence from other members, magenta cast issue is absent/negligible on the 100c.

    Hasselblad 24mm (or 25mm) f2.5V and 135mm f2.5V

    Any sample pictures produced with the 25V from forum members yet? I am curious.

    Hasselblad 24mm (or 25mm) f2.5V and 135mm f2.5V

    I think the XCD25 makes for a nice replacement of the XCD21 that I revere.

    Hasselblad 24mm (or 25mm) f2.5V and 135mm f2.5V

    Not really the same image circle, but it‘s crazy! Also comparing XCD4/45P and CFi 4/50 for example. Brought the 50 with adapter once instead and immediately regretted it.

    Small case for 100 x 150mm filter system

    There is a Shimoda filter wrap that I use to protect and carry some essential filters plus holder. I think it’s called Shimoda 150 or so.

    Hasselblad 45p firmware update 1.36 release

    Same here. Vaguely related: I would really like to see an update for the 50c bodies at some point. Sometimes when selecting the White Balance, the system completely hangs. Backporting of the translucent frame mask of the 100c would be nice as well.

    Fun with MF images 2024

    I no longer have the 28P, but I also did notice some unexpected focus behavior (talking about achieving the best DOF over the entire frame). In my experience focussing in DOF preview helps with accuracy and focus peaking, like Matt said. Also, like with many wide angle lenses I believe it helps...

    xcd 38 experiences, and compared to 30 and 45

    I second that. Went the same route.

    xcd 38 experiences, and compared to 30 and 45

    That said, I believe the auto-correction profile for the 28P in Phocus 3.8 got a bit better but not perfect with respect to color. Judging from an attempt with an old .fff file and the 3.8 lens correction it’s not completely neutral in my case, meaning still only a Scene calibration can remove...

    xcd 38 experiences, and compared to 30 and 45

    Not sure how you perceive it, but the left uncorrected frame exhibits a red shift on the right hand edge. Maybe it is a bit less pronounced than in my sample.

    Hasselblad 500c and Phase One P45 Back - long exposure not working?

    Ah sorry, I meant M mode on the compur shutter because that one will NOT have the required sync timing.

    Hasselblad 500c and Phase One P45 Back - long exposure not working?

    Could it be that you both have the C lens shutter on X mode? (Just a thought if these are not frequently used for electronic flash photography…)

    Hasselblad 500c and Phase One P45 Back - long exposure not working?

    A proper lens CLA should be between 50-100,- EUR.

    A macro lens for the view camera

    I can also confirm that the Makro Symmar HM 5,6/120 is very good on digital with a massive image circle. Using it with the CFV II 50c. Off-center image quality degrades, but my guess is a BSI back might not be affected by smearing and color shifts as much.
