PowerG9atBlackForest: I've seen no explanation so far of how this filter can be adjusted directionally. It is for good reasons that polarisation filters in front of a lens e.g. can be rotated. Would someone like to clarify this question before proceeding? Or did I miss something? If so please tell me.

(at) fmian: Thanks, Your first posting expresses exactly what I wanted to say. I also do agree with your second posting (within this column). Regards

PowerG9atBlackForest: Does it matter what it says on the tin as long as you are happy with what is in?

It sounds to me that everybody never felt unhappy with a product branded with a famous name.

PowerG9atBlackForest: Guess what? We've seen it all already! Not the one million minutes in one piece - but bit by bit: Twiggy and Marilyn, and wasn't that terrible at Lakehurst and Pearl Harbour. Oh, those sweet clips of nostalgia every now and then!

You may tell your son that most of the footage, if not all of it, is already available on YouTube or elsewhere. The time "is right" now.

How foolish can a question be? Are you 78 y-o+ and I am sure that you already watched that clip about the Hindenburg Zeppelin at Lakehurst ??

Industrial students may well be capable of designing a fashionable, foldable lightbox. Designing LED lights suitable for photography with proper CRIs and all that matters is quite a different thing and not a laugh.

PowerG9atBlackForest: Wonder if the EVF can still be used in a look-down position with an electronic flash mounted on to the hot-shoe.

Perhaps, some Asian company comes with some sort of prolongation ...

PowerG9atBlackForest: The main effort still remains the same: Alining the cameras carefully.

Lars, I read what you wrote: "The app also uses the device's built-in gyroscopes and compasses to provide on-screen guidance for optimal camera spacing and positioning."
In the past I did some bt sequences by myself. With the precision required, I doubt very much that built-in gyroscopes and compasses really can do the job. They eventually could if (and probably only if) screen copies of all cameras participating could be made visible on one master screen. Even if so, arranging it I am sure would take longer than the "under one minute".

InTheMist: Well said Barney!

Pretty much my feelings put in words. You should be an editor or something.

Anyway, I'm still not sure how I feel about that 28mm lens. I actually like how they implemented it* but I'm a bit mixed on having only 14 MP at a 35mm crop.

*if I understood right, frame lines only, cropped in Lightroom, where you can adjust it later. It's consistent with the Leica philosophy of seeing what's entering the frame through the viewfinder. Have I understood right?

May I just repeat what you said: Well said Barney! Pretty much my feelings put in words.

gbvalli: i think that for an only lens would be more useful a 35 mm .

Missing out the 28 mm then.

PowerG9atBlackForest: Quote: "The camera, the Hasselblad A5D, has no moving parts and as such avoids unintentional internal mechanical movements that aircraft vibrations can cause."

But hey, aircraft vibrations could still move the camera as such, unintentionally, externally, mechanically.

Second thoughts: Anyway, did at any time internal moving mechanical camera parts impose problems if designed, produced and assembled properly, as presumably in Hasseblad factories e.g.?

The whole statement seems so ridiculous. What was the need for it?

To finish it up, I haven't heard of Hasselblad screws getting loose by vibrations, either.

I once had a Leica universal bag similar in size, quality and prize to this Ona Berlin II bag, but not of messenger type. The original bag had rigid dividers. So, I think everyone will appreciate these customizable soft paddings.

The bag may even look attractive to non-Leica owners, e.g. within the mft community where I found there is lack of profoundly good quality bags.

One detail however, strap holes ought to be oval not circular round.
