  • I've been shooting this camera on Gitzo Traveler Series 2 legs, in sometimes slightly adverse conditions, with wind, and they've worked marvelously. Stiff, rigid, confidence-inspiring. I'm a huge ...
  • Replied in Second wave
    That's never a bad idea of course, but I will say that the 50S made so much immediate sense when I first picked it up, and I've never shot with Fuji X cameras. That in itself is part of what sold ...
  • Replied in Legacy Leaf
    I love mine, not least for its 2000th shutter speed, which has been incredibly useful shooting in extremely bright outdoors situations. Flash sync has never mattered to me.
  • I know. Mine are the Zeiss V lenses. I suppose I should have noted that.
  • There may be a slight irony in that I almost immediately bought an adapter to adapt my Hasselblad lenses to my GFX. As an aside, up until now, I considered those Hasselblads to be the highest ...
  • I'm still getting to know the camera, so maybe I missed it, but is this a menu option in the camera, or are you referring to a post process? Regarding the GF lenses in general (well, at least the ...
  • I'm waiting for the M mount adapters to be back in stock. I'm most keen to put some old Leica lenses on the Z7. I'd also like a Contax C/Y adapter, maybe Contax G (although that's always a tricky ...
  • And how exactly are you informed of the OP's shooting ratio?
  • Thanks!
  • Sharon, is that the 18L?
  • There is a section at the bottom of the ICU page that indicates clearly which single ICU or some combinations of ICUs fit which bags. As for each ICU, inner and outer dimensions are included in the ...
  • I don't own one yet, but will soon. They seem popular with some pretty serious outdoors oriented photographers, including Jimmy Chin. https://fstopgear.com/products/packs
  • Oh I think it's a great suggestion to build a preset, or import one, that gets the shots closer to whatever "wow" is! :) I'm all for that. It's just the extra effort of shooting the card, building ...
  • I don't have patience for any of it! :) Which doesn't surprise me at all, and reinforces my secondary assertion that the GFX system in itself won't solve the problem.
  • Did you look at this full size on his site? Check around the lips, chin, and screen right cheek, below the glasses.
  • That's what I was guessing. So this is relevant to the OP as we're both shooting AIS/old fully manual lenses. The "meatball/arrows" aid isn't an option. Which takes us back to the vastly superior ...
  • Of course. But my point there was simply that Chris' employment of color tests every day isn't excessive, if absolute accuracy matters. I myself have no interest in any of this, as what I shoot ...
  • Huh. Odd. It's not in my camera. I just checked again right now, with the 35mm f1.4 AIS mounted, and I don't see it. Maybe I have to be in a certain mode? I have no recollection of ever seeing it, ...
  • Let's be clear on Alophind's stated goal: wow factor. Not accurate color per se. Chris Dodkin is shooting daily commercial work where color accuracy is central to representing his clients. His ...
  • Sure, I guess. There's a place in someone's bag for probably every lens ever made, and I'm not immune to the pleasures of what poorly made lenses can do. They're just not for me. I suppose my ...
