Whou !!!

Interesting camera, system, and fantastic shot, is it more versatile system than the hasseblad v system ?
coulombic Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2012   Photographer
It is substantially more versatile than the Hassy system. I can essentially use any lens on this camera, provided the image circle is large enough. The Hassy is really just a SLR, while this is more of a technical, direct-view camera. The Hassy, however, is far easier to use. My setup has no autofocus, no metering aside from what my histogram provides, and the image is inverted (though, I think the Hassy V is inverted, too, but I don't recall).

Different horses for different courses. That said, my setup always draws a crowd when I'm out shooting.

Ok thank you for the long answer you system is very unique,...i would find the perfect system for medium to large format digital photograph, i like the arca system[link] but i think i really expensive for me... and for now i will stay with scan and film...:)

I was torn between the RM3Di, the HCam, and the Silvestri Bicam II. The RM3D likely offers the best quality, but being that I already had a number of exceptional lenses that would work with the HCam, I figured I'd try it out. Turns out, I really like it. I find the quality pretty exceptional with my 80Mp back, and I very seldom need to use LCC profiles for color correction (while the competitive technical cameras are highly dependent on this for angle-of-incidence color cast correction).

The biggest drawback, naturally, of most digital backs is the exposure limitation. The shortest exposure I can make with my Aptus-II 12 is 32 seconds. Film . . . well, with reciprocity failure and a fat ND filter, you can expose away happily for hours, really streaking the sky and smoothing the passage of time. Miss that. I'm tempted to pick up a film back for my Mamiya just for this reason.

What do you use? Hassy V System, I'm guessing?
cameraflou Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2012
No I have no Hassy V system or anything like that(pretty much expensive), I only used old film cameras.
But having already seen a photographer using a digitalback on a sinar P3 and the result he got, I was speechless ... the details obtained...:)

Your system looks really cool, but still expensive for me, I'll stay a little longer with my old machine ... and the film ...:)

Keep it up your good work...
