CCDs have always been touted as having superior imaging capabilities but have fallen out of favor because they are more expensive, use more power, don't do high ISO as well, and are harder to make than CMOS sensors. On the flip side, the used price of cameras like the CCD-based Pentax 645D and CCD digital backs have come down dramatically and are now within reach of some of us. So the question becomes, if one shoots exclusively in a studio at lower ISOs, do those older Kodak sensors still...
I bought a Pentax 645D off of Craig's List...(I know, Buyer beware) from a very talented professional photographer in San Francisco. We had quite a lot of dialogue about the condition of the camera, which he said was (like new). After taking a few test shots, I can see the kiss of death: a small green line in all of the shots.

Do I need to attach a lens to be able to reduce the ISO value? Can someone please clarify this to me? Thanks. Incheon
I'm looking for some advice regarding stopping motion using my Profoto D1 Air 500s. I love these heads and use them for just about everything. However, I'm getting into more beverage photography, and need to start capturing splashes etc. I've been having a heck of a time accomplishing nice crisp frozen motion. I've played around with high speed sync on my speedlights, but I would like to use my D1 Airs. I admit I'm very new to this sort of thing, and don't have much experience with freezing...
