  • A couple of years before I got into MF there was only Phase and Hasselblad on the one side and Pentax 645 on the other side (neglecting Leica here). Phase and H were in the range between $30 - 50k ...
  • wow - I was wrong being the only "Hasselblad Team" member here...there is one more!
  • yes, bracketing is still missing. is on the request list, but H does not confirm when and what will be implemented. Other items hot on the requests are: - EVF indication of DOF in meters and cm or ...
  • You probably won't get much information for X1D here. This is mostly a Fuji GFX forum, not many Hasselblad and Phase shooters here. I like to highlight Just one point regrading the software. As ...
  • Well, the OP say that this thread could be a great learning experience (besides the fun). So what is wrong in a forum like this of having healthy discussions about some techniques relevant to MF ...
  • ha ha ha...my grand'ma portrait studio style! This is my grand'ma, shot in studio at f/6.8 at no TTL flash... [IMAGE DELETED]
  • ok, that is fine for me and good to know. But then I would suggest to include such statement into the opening guidelines...
  • ok, that is fine for me, but I do shoot at closer down (f/5.6 or f/8) in a studio setting. There is virtually no real background for which a "creamy bokeh" or so is worth an open or almost open ...
  • Just wondering why you are shooting a studio setting like this at full open aperture? I guess the distance is about 3-4 meters, so DOF is only something like 15-27 cm. And lens wouldn't render ...
  • So, in that case you won't like this one either: Hasselblad H5D-50c HC 80mm f/2.8 @f/2.8, 1/125sec, ISO 100 lights from Bron, single flash lamp in SB front-left Model Carolina, MUA by Estella, ...
  • That reminds me to a situation I recently envisaged. The marketing manager of a reputable pharmaceutical firm asked me for quoting product shots for the entire catalog of theirs expensive hi tech ...
  • hey, I have the same, since about over 10 years now. Great piece of equipment, never will let you down. very versatile and mobil, for portrait shoots as well as for products. studio only. built ...
  • certainly not by me. But I would agree to close this thread. Everything is said multiple times. No winners, no losers. Both systems obviously have their places. I admit that newer HSS must have ...
  • Replied in Here you go
    yes, this is exactly what we are talking about. By each faster shutter speed the background gets darkened, but not the foreground. In your examples the foreground gets considerable darker as well ...
  • Chris, you seemed to be confused now with these 2 "proofs": in the first example he was saying "to relatively darken backgrounds in high sun/bright light at high shutter speeds..." emphasis is on ...
  • Teila, thanks for your comments! I was describing my situation that in 30 years I have not experienced the lack of a faster x-sync than 1/2000 sec. Off course, others in other photographic fields ...
  • left eye, couldn't have formulated any better! And that is fully clear to me, but obviously not to him. I did that test with a LS system in the other thread in reaction of his test series of images ...
  • be careful, especially in the US: such statements might already be sexist....---> #me too. Besides, blondes usually have more fun...
  • ok, good points. Now let's talk about real world cases. This was taken with Hasselblad H6D-100c with leaf shutter lens HCD 100mm f/2.2 at ISO 64 / f/2.8 / 1/2000sec shutter. Sun was back right from ...
  • Chris, I promised not to come back to this, but heck, I cannot let it stand like this. Your test on here in this new thread is wrong or faked or impossible: you are saying for all images that your ...
