Kerrick James and the 645D in Boston!

Kerrick James and the 645D in Boston!

This is Kerrick James, and yes I will be doing two presentations at W B Hunts in Boston, one on Friday, November 5 from 4-6 PM, and also Saturday, November 7 from 9-11 AM. And, I do have the 645D and 55 FA with me right now and will have it in Boston, as well as two 30x40 test prints made from 645D Monument Valley images. I have a 120 slide show to present and I hope many of you will join me. I will be showing new 645D image samples from the deserts of the American Southwest, as well as K-r and K-5 images, and the show is called 'SOUTHWEST SOJOURNS'.

I wish I could make it down. If you ever make it up to Victoria (after your stop in Portland), let us know

Will do, and I'll post all future events here as soon as they are firmed up. Would love to do this show in the Northwest.

Keep shooting, Kerrick James

I may be on a fixed income, but if you come to the OTHER Portland, I'd be very interested.

While reading your OP here, I was suddenly struck by the question, "At what point does the projector's resolution begin to limit showing the quality of very high-res photos?"

silly brain.

Any idea if we'll be able to run a few shots through the 645D on our own SD cards? Would love to do a few studio type shots w/ a beauty dish, but I suspect this isn't what the seminar is about ;-)
Great work...would love to hear if you've tried A/B comparisons w/ the K5 and 645D and what you throught about the shadow noise and dynamic range in relation to sunset/sunrise shots...

It would be great to see it as a webinar. Manfrotto offers sometimes webinars true their School of Excellence. I followed some of them the last months.

Well, I haven't seen their space so I don't know how their lighting stacks up, but as far as I'm concerned you're welcome to bring an SD card and take some sample shots to peruse later on a monitor. If 20 people want to do that time will be limited but otherwise go for it!

Hi Kerrick,

I don't suppose that the Philippines is on your regular circuit? Oh well. Thanks for posting here and keep us informed about your experiences with the 645D, especially as regards whether or to what extent it might have changed your commitment to MF film photography.

Best, Alan

Even though the majority of my recent assignment work has been shot on the K-7, (now on the K-5, a serious upgrade), I still was pulling out my 67II system for the 'grand landscape' on occasion. But, after testing the 645D, I can't go back to the 67 Velvia again. The 30X40 test prints I made from the 645D, using two 645 film era zoom, clearly beat my 67 lenses and film. So there it is. The prints actually rival well handled 4X5 quality, an impressive feat, and this camera is far easier to work with for most shooters. Its worth the money in my book.

Hi Kerrick:

I still use mostly my 67 and 67II and have preordered the 645D (an act of faith on my part, I don't usually like to be a first user). So I'm quite pleased to read your assessment of the camera.

You will be pleased Thomas. The 30x40" prints were amazing...

Very interesting.
But what do you mean: 30x40 cm or 30x40 inches?

The double quote is the symbol for inches.
