One of the more difficult things to conceptually grasp, and that a number of my images in this set fail to do, is to understand how the FoV and the focus point plane are linked. First, as John said, there's the lack of format coverage. Magazine issue 5 will come out Sept. In the image above all of these things come together. But then I work with raw files from 42Mp 135 full frame and they're excellent too. Wide open this lens is still nice and sharp and the tonality it renders is gorgeous.
Such a camera needs to have what the Canon R has: it closes the shutter in front of the sensor when changing lenses, or some kind of ultrasonic sensor cleaning system that operates every time you turn the camera on. There are a few solutions available for this problem. Damien Demolder - what's the widest aperture you were able to use on a sunny day - given the physical shutter speed limitations of the Blad's leaf shutter? Today I received my copy which I bought off ebay for about the same price and it is in excellent condition. Mamiya 645 1000S vs Contax 645 In the past I owned a Contax 645 + Zeiss Planar 80mm f2 T lens. But at least you'll have the widest aperture 6x9cm camera on the block.
This is like shooting a gallery for a macro lens with 4 half ass macro shots and 26 landscapes. I hope that this reassures you about the quality and usefulness of the 80mm f1. Kurt, that's all your fault! Even as new lenses help expand the appeal of the X System, photographers accustomed to the speed of a Sony or a Nikon may be hesitant to invest. I don't see any problems with the 50 Shift on my P45+ in any shift position. Can't tell you how it performs on a digital back but should be alright with the 9 micron pixel pitch backs afaik.
But, when the shot comes out, the camera photo looks much nicer. We see a few other things distracting in the composition. Today I received my copy which I bought off ebay for about the same price and it is in excellent condition. The guide stated that at small apertures and high shutter speeds, one must always compensate by up to one full stop. I'd kill for a f1. How do you find the portability of the camera? The bokeh was harsh the third photo down captures some of this and although the depth of field on 645 was thin, the bokeh meant that most of the picture was a mass of ugly blur. It even has close focus distance of 70cm! As you see the failure in this image is that, Though the majority of this image is beautifully out of focus except for the point of critical focus the eye , there are some other places where the focal plane intersects the face again, most notably in the hair and can be distracting and was very difficult to attempt to mask out in Photoshop, so I gave up on trying to do this.
I am not madly in love with the camera itself, nor hate it either but the pictures it can produce start to get my medium format photos closer to my 35mm using the Leica Noctilux 50mm f1. Traces of use on the lens barel due to use in projection machines Glass are clear, without fungus, without haze, without heavy dust and without visible scratches. From our very first test image, we could tell that Hasselblad had worked some magic into this lens. In March of 2011, Microsoft released version 9 of Internet Explorer that, in addition to providing greater security, is faster and more standards compliant than versions 6, 7, and 8 that came before it. At least with film but that doesn't count I guess. I'll post some images taken with the 80mm 1.
Nicer to have the distant background slightly blurry to set off the subject. This is barely larger than full frame. I've never used this lens. These are premium telephoto lenses which offer relatively fast apertures and superior optics. There are also the advantages of a very bright viewfinder image, and the ability to shoot at f1. Thanks in advance - Steve Stephen: I like the f1.
While it is not quite as sharp as the f2. Though in real life this is not something you would notice since they still click firmly and confidently. My stupidity will be somebody's gain! Having a long and intimate friendship with fast lenses in 35mm format, I wanted to have same low light and shallow depth of field possibilities in medium format. The slightly wider-than-normal angle comes in handy too sometimes. On the rear lens because the rear lens is overhanging the bottom of the lens barrel is a little mark, not a classic scratch in the coating. The amount of dust particles in the skies of these images: wow; skies with measles! By this I mean, if you look at the above image, the first thing you are struck with is that you are being drawn to the models left eye, dragging you deep into the picture.
Footnote: Actually, the widest aperture lens made commercially for the 6x4. There are trade-offs, not the least being the convenience and ease of use of the iPhone. Also, if any lens correction software misread the profile as another Hasselblad lens, that may have done it. Perhaps in your next set of photos you could split the difference and find a way to marry your sublime compositional instincts to a more robust and much closer look at the world around you. Things are very modular in medium format, but there is much less compatibility between systems than you must have been thinking. The Noctilux is lauded as the fastest lens in the Leica M series line up as well as the world , as a new standard in image quality at wide apertures, and being a king of bokeh amongst other things.
Secondly, the camera body does not use interchangeable backs. Holding the world at arms' length is not a bad choice aesthetically; your pictures are magnificent, especially in their use of negative space. Make me an offer - you pay postage please. Steve - I have the all-metal, f1. No doubt precipitous price-drops relative to income helped. Add to this the announced in May, and Hasselblad has released four new lenses just this year. So I wouldn't rule it out right away - but of course, I wouldn't be willing to spend any serious money for such a sample either.
What would a standard setting of Phocus do? In our opinion, a fast aperture lens like this was exactly what Hasselblad needed to make the X System feel complete; that it arrived on the same day as two other lenses is an unexpected, and very welcome, bonus. The lens related downsides lie in depth of field and bokeh quality. I didn't expect to be that amazed. A 645 lens might just about project a 6x6 image, probably no more, but image quality could be rather poor in the extremities. As it happens, I have my camera here at work with me today, so I've posted a photo of it below. I remember my copy of the 'Kodak Professional Photo Guide' which contained instructions for compensating for leaf-shutter geometry at high speeds.
