    X1d e-shutter quite usable.

    Would be interesting to photograph a clock with a second hand or a mechanical metronome. Or cars driving through a 20MPH school zone.

    A bit of a crazy piece of kit

    What I have seen on pricing, film gear generally is ridiculous expensive.

    Ageing photographers and the weight. Simplicate and add lightness.

    And of course if the tripod has the option of different tripod angles, this gives another option for more movement. Did not think of that before.

    Ageing photographers and the weight. Simplicate and add lightness.

    Thx for the reply. RRS TA-2U-LB Leveling Base is ordered.

    Ageing photographers and the weight. Simplicate and add lightness.

    Me jumping in here. I have a philosophical issue with the use of the word "down" when moving to a smaller sensor size or with "up" when moving to a larger sensor size. Generally also somewhat negatively or positively, respectively, associated. I see it more "horses for courses" than "up" or...

    Ageing photographers and the weight. Simplicate and add lightness.

    Yes, have been also thinking about the RRS TA-2U-LB Leveling Base. What has been your experience? The advantage of the leveling base for use with a (heavy) technical camera is that there is less chance of a tipping the tripod since the camera can't fall into the 90 degree drop notch. But I am...

    Ageing photographers and the weight. Simplicate and add lightness.

    This is also the tripod and tripod head I am using. No center column, but enough maximum height that the non-existing center column is not missed.

    What we all strive for:

    Would add architecture to the list. The classics are here Rudolf Arnheim's, Art and Visual Perception, The Power of the Center, Visual Thinking, and Dynamics-of-Architectural-Form.

    What we all strive for:

    I know only one book on/about photography that contains a constructive, detailed & comprehensive discussion of composition and that's Bruce Barnbaum, The Art of Photography: A Personal Approach to Artistic Expression, 2nd Edition. Has a chapter titled "What is Composition?" followed by a chapter...

    The great tripod & head thread!

    Maybe a bit off topic but since the last postings were about a wooden tripod, Ansel Adams wrote: Engineers have told me that vibration is one of the difficult problems to overcome in design. It can appear with different "loading" (the weight of the supported components), or with sympathetic...

    Live view support for Capture One for iPad / iPhone Version 2.3.0

    Just saw that on dpreview: "Atomos announces Ninja Phone for connecting camera to iPhone for monitoring and recording", https://tinyurl.com/mv5bwb7t Of any interest or use for us?

    The Phase One XT 150mm HO-S SB Lens – First Impressions

    Perhaps, but repurposing an arial lens for general purpose photography might not be so straightforward.

    The Phase One XT 150mm HO-S SB Lens – First Impressions

    Last year Silvestri introduced the Apo Silvetar 5.6/35 mm Interesting that camera manufacturer now started to step in with their own lens design.

    IQ5 rumors

    No April Fools' Day prank of an announced IQ5! I guess, no one would believe it in the first place.

    Phase One XT 150mm HO-S SB Lens

    Yes, that's the answer I unfortunately expected.

    IQ5 rumors

    There is something to be said for 4:3 as a good compromise between 5:4 (4:5 for us 4x5" shooters) and 3:2 (36mm or FF).

    Phase One XT 150mm HO-S SB Lens

    For Nikon Nikkor T lenses the focal flange distance is about 2/3 of the focal length. Assuming that this also applied to the P1 150mm, this would give a focal flange distance of about 100mm. My Silvestri Flexicam would just have enough extension. But even if I could get a custom COPAL shutter...

    Phase One XT 150mm HO-S SB Lens

    Your webpage states "150mm Telephoto design". I am not aware of any modern Rodenstock lenses of telephoto design. Are you free to share the flange focal distance.

    Phase One XT 150mm HO-S SB Lens

    Does this mean that P1's "XT Short Barrel Adapter" adds 42mm of extension? Cambo has three different rear spacers, WRS-1010 / 1017 / 1048, adding 10mm, 17mm, and 48mm, respectively. Will be interesting to see whether P1 will follow Cambo, and offer different extensions. Such rear extension...

    The great tripod & head thread!

    Camera bags surely fall into the same category. Someone once wrote that he stopped questions his wife about her handbag purchases and handbag collection after she pointed out his every expanding camera bag collection.
