On article Hasselblad to announce 'game changer' next week (457 comments in total)
In reply to:

jensmollenvanger: I'm pretty sure it's going to be a mirrorless MF body. Hopefully with the 53.4 x 40.0mm CMOS sensor and around 50MP. But probably it will be the 44x33mm Sony sensor found in the 645Z and 50C. I want something more portable than a 645Z or H6D, let's say about 1kg so it balances well with the excisting HC(D) lenses, preferable the new ones with the max shutter speed and sync speed of 1/2000. Also, a large EVF with a fast refresh rate and minimal shutter lag, custom crop modes (5:4, 4:3, 3:2, 6:6, 6:7) with some sort of mask overlay, accurate and fast AF with true/eye focus, great battery life and a well-thought-out and easy to use interface/buttons. Priced around 6000€ for the (weather sealed?) body, this would be a portrait photographers dream IMHO.

Do your models enjoy posing in the rain?

On article Hasselblad to announce 'game changer' next week (457 comments in total)

What could possibly be game changing? I thought about this and I have an answer:

You turn a mode dial to the type of shot you want, such as on the beach, in a restaurant etc.

You turn the zoom dial to determine how many people are in the shot.

You press the button and the camera photo shops a random composition based on archive photos of you and your friends and stock images it downloads automatically.

It then adds a suitable caption and uploads the image automatically to your favourite social sites.

All without taking a single real photo.

DigitalTed: For all you disbelievers I haved posted two sets of photos to my gallery QED

I believe you may have made a little mistake, the sets of negatives posted were from a different shoot and do not include the above image.

Toermalijn: It seems this image is a stock image converted to Ilford .

What's the advantage of the compact camera over the Epsom scanner?

Gettting such a good shot after being thrown about the skies is no mean feat!

Do I get Brownie points for guessing that's the A1 you're flying over?

Interestingly Tin Eye also found a copy of this photo credited to user 'Anne Dixon' on myfinepix.com

Certainly the photo's in Ted's gallery show an interesting range of cameras. Are they all his or is there something we should be told :D

I'm impressed with the quality of the colouring, how did you achieve it?

Derek Dean: Seems to me that it's quite possible the poster simply misunderstood the requirements, and thought it was supposed to be a photo OF a film camera.

In any case, it's a lovely photo.

Camera, ISO, Focal length? All changed in line with a Hasselblad shooting FP4, which would be capable of this quality.

Yes, there seems to be little doubt that this was not shot on FP4.

Of course if it's disqualified then there will be no trace of it.

If we leave the entry here then even if it's withdrawn these comments will remain as a testimony to what a loser DigitalTed is.

Leave or Disqualify? Wha' d'all think?

In reply to:

Ken Phillips: What I would like to have is a sensor module - with perhaps an APS-C or larger Sony sensor - with which I could create my own system (use Canon or Nikon glass, etc.)

There are numerous C mount modules available for the Pi.
