  1. Re: best digital back Leaf Aptus22 vs Phaseone P21+

    Yes into it now, but by no means an expert :)

    First off, you are comparing apples and oranges. The P21+ is a crop sensor 18MP back and the Aptus 22 is a 22MP full-frame sensor camera.

    What...

  7. Re: A Cardboard Box Arrived from China! Chamonix 8x10!

    Jack will respond ;)

    First off, I will go solidly on record that the Chamonix is NOT the "equal" of the A/S with Orbix, nor is it really the "equal" of the Ebony 45 SU. As I wrote in the original...

    Re: astia f for landscapes?

    I think Astia is an excellent choice, especially if you scan and print digitally. The added latitude is always welcome, and the softer color palette can be pumped up easily in post processing.

    Re: Help me configure a Mac

    I just ordered mine: I went with the 3.2's and basic 2G RAM and 500G drive, to which I'll add 8G aftermarket Apple-Qualified RAM purchased 3rd party ($400 for 4x2G paired sticks). For drives, I also...
  11. Re: Would you replace a 90mm and 135mm with a 110XL?

    I'd definitely TRY the 110 before letting go of your 90 XL --- 110's are readily available, 90 XL's harder to come by...
  12. Re: Would you replace a 90mm and 135mm with a 110XL?

    Ted answered the pricing question.

    As for format, all of the backs capture roughly 3" x 4" (72mm x 96mm IIRC). Anyway, I would say the regular 6K is equivalent to a perfectly captured sheet of...
  13. Re: Would you replace a 90mm and 135mm with a 110XL?

    Yes, assuming "best film possible" is a color emulsion too :D But to be clear, I'm referring to the Super 6K HR version (or 8K), not the 4K.
  14. Re: Would you replace a 90mm and 135mm with a 110XL?

    No need to hide, just get a bit more educated... Leica M glass is optimized to be its sharpest at relatively close reportage shooting distances, like 1.5 meters for the 35's. Also, they are...
  15. Re: Would you replace a 90mm and 135mm with a 110XL?

    The M8 sensor does not have an AA filter in in front of it, and the comparable Nikon and Canon sensors do --- makes a HUGE difference in ability to print large with clarity. Lenses of course also...
  16. Re: Would you replace a 90mm and 135mm with a 110XL?

    totally agree Frank --- it's why I still shoot with 4x5 :) (And FWIW, I still own the Chamonix --- I think we had a bet?)

    Bottom line is the M8 is about like quality drum-scanned 2-1/4. ...
  17. Re: Would you replace a 90mm and 135mm with a 110XL?

    I can print the M8 files to 16x24 and they look excellent. With digital, you don't need SND filters ;) A technique we taught in Yosemite was digital blending for that very purpose. The image above...

    I have owned all 3. In a nutshell, they are all great. However, the Nikkor M's IC is pretty limited and it just covers 8x10 with a few mm to spare. Because of that, I went with the Fuji 300C. ...
