Whou !!!

Interesting camera, system, and fantastic shot, is it more versatile system than the hasseblad v system ?

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?

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...

The color is just eye-poppingly incredible. Wow.

I imagine you had to go with a large aperture to get the foreground so sharp and to deal with the low light, but I think you could have crept up to having the horizon more in focus. My eye goes straight to that band of pink in the distance then jumps back down to the first crisp place, which is distracting.

A beautiful work, however.

Actually, it's a slightly different issue, somewhat more technical. I was using a technical view camera to shoot this, and using tilt extensively as to try to optimize depth-of-field. I tilted too much, which caused the distant features to start falling out-of-focus. I wasn't completely happy with the way it turned out, but the foreground really was stunning. Additionally, it is a fairly long exposure (32-seconds), which caused the clouds to move a fair bit, as well, adding to the appearance of "out-of-focus."

A technical view camera? Is that one of those accordion-looking deals?

The foreground IS stunning - I probably wouldn't have mentioned the horizon had you not specifically asked for a critique. :)

No, I'm not rocking a bellows setup (though, for sheer range-of-movement, they're pretty much unbeatable). I'm currently using a Hartblei HCam B1 with various tilt-shift lenses with a medium format digital back. See HCam: ([link]).

I think I might be able to salvage some detail. Either way, I'm actually not terribly disappointed how this turned out, due to the tremendous detail and color of the foreground. I still need to print it, though, just to see how I like it full-sized.
