    I haven't been able to make much time to go out for proper photo trips this summer which is a huge bummer. I have been itching to do something and managed to snap these using my cell phone recently.

    Good colors, Pali.

    JG, that's a very interesting look.
    Please stop feeding the trolls.

    So most of the IR's you have mentioned (in that other post about your jaunts and the law) you use the Actus with the NX500? Just a single image, no stitching?
    I was planning to test/buy a shen hao canon adapter to 2x3...
    Just asking, since I get a chance to and most of the posts are from veterans and long time LF photographers... if you have time Sir..

    I actually have two "FrankenKamera" outfits that I use regularly besides this one, depending on the photos I intend to take. The first is a modified Toyo VX23D medium-format view camera, which I use with an A7R body and a variety of 35 mm and medium-format lenses when I expect I will need to use tilt and swing movements in addition to rise / fall / shift movements. The other one is a modified Cambo WDS medium-format technical camera, which I also use with an A7R body and the same selection of lenses, which I use when I expect I will need only rear rise / fall / shift movements (i.e., mostly architectural exteriors and urban and suburban street scenes, such as this one).

    I'm using the Cambo Actus with the my modified NX500 body for infrared photography mostly because I'm not using it for anything else. This way, I don't have to spend any time swapping bodies back and forth, but can just grab it and head out the door when the mood strikes. That plus the fact that it's the smallest and lightest camera outfit I have available, which comes in handy because all of the IR photos I've posted here have been taken while I'm doing double-duty by also walking my dog.

    Just a single image, no stitching?
    Well, Yes and No. I generally don't do any stitching, but I do take multiple photos of the same scene -- typically seven of them -- and then blend them in Photoshop by aligning them, turning them into a smart object, and using the median mode. This has the effect of reducing noise (which IR photography generates in abundance because so much of the image data is recorded only in the red channel), as well as smoothing jagged edges and revealing small, textural details.

    For the curious, here is a typical (non-infrared) example of a single file image:



    and seven identical files, median-blended into one:

    I'm not sure exactly what adapter you're referring to, but I will warn you that mounting a DSLR on a typical view camera usually doesn't work too well. I started down this path using my mid-'80s vintage Toyo 23G medium-format view camera but quickly discovered it wasn't nearly as stable or rigid as it needed to be to achieve optimal results. I found this was also true using a Toyo 45G and it was only after I bought my N.O.S. Toyo VX23D, which was specifically designed for use with digital backs and short focal length, high-res lenses, that I was able to achieve satisfactory results.

    Just asking, since I get a chance to and most of the posts are from veterans and long time LF photographers... if you have time Sir..
    Although I've been photographing for more than 40 years now and have more than 25 years of experience using view cameras of all formats, I'm far from an expert about any of this. That said, I'm happy to help when I can, so feel free to ask me any questions you might have!

    Thank You Sir... very informative, no the adapter is just a common face plate similar to a horseman 120 back and the tube has a mount for EOS.. type.. OK no its very helpful info..Since I am still getting into the hardware slowwwly..

    I did not know that.. about using a multiple shots of the same viewpoint worked. I always thought when layering on Photoshop or any photo-editing software would "drown" the image.
    But the black and white with the cruisers in it that was film, I keep looking at it.. for reference ideas ..

    OK thanks again.,.. and I might test a toyo half plate sakai with a tilt-all and hopefully it will be "quiet"... I hope to do 69 and 54.. will post as soon as I can; do the shot and develop them.
