    Hasselblad 100C and 35XL

    Well WA and shift is the definition of what you'd want to use specifically a tech cam for ... interesting.

    Hasselblad 100C and 35XL

    Even on an 180?? That's disappointing

    IQ 60MP VS 100MP (color comparison only)

    The 80 megapixel CCDs don’t play with SK wide angles. That’s why the 260 is the one to get if you want SK wide angles. Then you are in non live view territory which means framing and focusing aids or hyperfocal.

    LR Enhance

    If you work off of DNGs the results with Topaz software is better. You can export P1 files via C1 as DNGs and subjectively I see a better result somehow vs. based on TIFF.

    IQ 60MP VS 100MP (color comparison only)

    I hated that I actually could only use iso 50-100 for discriminating quality. Handheld is tricky and you work on a tripod and focusing without live view is annoying once you got accustomed to modern backs

    IQ 60MP VS 100MP (color comparison only)

    The 80 mpx CCDs never worked with SK WAs, while the 60 MPX was ok. That's the main reason to go for a 60 MPX CCD. This said, I'd choose CMOS any day of the week vs. CCD for live view.

    Will you be getting Capture One Studio?

    Agree that C1's cost can be "swung" - its more of a value for money thing for me given they are not really releasing THAAT much new killer features for the 300 bucks you throw at it when subscribing. I am still on my C23 perpetual license which I got on an online sale. I see no reason to upgrade...

    Will you be getting Capture One Studio?

    The AI crop is limited in the "Pro" version. The problem is that the engineering resources are now split between two product tiers and you have no assurance of new ongoing features if management continues to opportunistically favour the enterprise solution. I would have thought c. 300 per year...

    Will you be getting Capture One Studio?

    The point is the PS is a given for many people so effectively you can say that C1 is an incremental cost if you don't want to deal with LR or Camera RAW within PS. C1 becomes a hard sell if you subscribe and get no new features in return.

    Will you be getting Capture One Studio?

    I think they’d make more money by focusing on value meaning high volume lower price but I guess the battle against Lightroom didn’t go as well so far in the sense that they weren’t able to make the volume inroads they had hoped for and now someone in management / marketing analysed that it’s...

    Will you be getting Capture One Studio?

    That’s the dumbest release ever - and a slap in the face of current C1 subscribers. AI crop and multi view are nice but it’s not really groundbreaking stuff and the fact that people who already pay the inflated subscription to C1 for the Pro version don’t get new features but instead are only...

    New camera from Arca Swiss: the Pico

    Essentially the ask is to make a 3k 35mm 60 megapixel BSI back.

    New camera from Arca Swiss: the Pico

    The Sigma is the best bang for the buck if you are into stitching – the Nikkor 90 samples on a bellow cam posted the other day were fantastic. Nothing to complain.

    New camera from Arca Swiss: the Pico

    Let's face it. The problem of the tech cam market right now is that most prospective "younger entrants" are priced out in this environment and pro's are either priced out due to lack of refinancability or they just prefer the new gen mirrorless systems like the GFX for workflow. This said, if...

    New camera from Arca Swiss: the Pico

    My point is more that there Pico addresses an audience which through it can “skip” buying a digital back. You should be able to adapt the new AS modified T/S lenses such as the 24mm and if you can use say a Digaron 40/50 on top that’s pretty useful with a M11M. I just think that in 2024 a lot...

    Ageing photographers and the weight. Simplicate and add lightness.

    Leica M and Pico! The M is the perfect "ageing photographer" camera. Best IQ available in a small package that goes everywhere.

    New camera from Arca Swiss: the Pico

    If it allows for SK 35/43/60 or Rodie 23/32/35/40/50 to be used with crop MF or Leica M / L it'll be a great solution. Very curious to see what combos are possible with the M11M.

    New camera from Arca Swiss: the Pico

    I think this mainly benefits new tech cam people who want to use an L or M camera or a Sigma camera as a cheaper digital back alternative especially if they already own such a system. If you thought about tech cams and are on M for example, skipping the digital back with this is an easy gateway...

    New camera from Arca Swiss: the Pico

    Well it solves the expensive back as a hindrance to entry topic and opens up Schneider BR. Here the 35, 45, 80 MK II, 120 Macro come to mind as interesting lenses, with the allure being the wides for arch use via shift and stitch, although correcting distortion won't be too easy. More...

    Leica Summicron-S 100 f/2 ASPH, boxed, updated $3850

    The S4 is likely to be launched in Spring of 2025 – so a great lens for the new system, too. Spring because financial year end of Leica is March. Fantastic lens.
