  1. Re: Tripods: Is Carbon Fiber worth the extra cost?

    It might be a psychological thing, but for me CF is worth the extra money. The simple idea that I have to carry a heavy tripod along with all my LF gear, where it can be done more lightweight, sets...

    Without focus knob this camera is doable for landscape-everything-sharp only. That’s not what I’m looking for in LF. LF is for me mainly about selective sharpness, oblique focus plane, bokeh, etc....
