I'm not good at post processing; hopefully I'll keep improving.....

P645Z 33-55 lens f/16 about 6s ISO 400 (it started to rain and the camera was pointed slightly upwards)



P645Z 33-55


I still have trouble fixing the 33-55's distortions, or at least getting the photos 'not too bad'.

There continues to be some great images posted here, and I wonder, apart from the obvious photos, how many users use their 645 with a Tripod? 50%, 90% of the time?

I would say I use a tripod 30 - 50% of the time. If I know the light is going to be bright enough, I'll often not even bring a tripod, or leave it in the car and return to the car for it if I'm parked close to the location.

That's impressive, given your images.

Thank you! It's probably closer to 30% than 50%. The ones above were all handheld because the wind was blowing so hard, even though my new Manfrotto MT057C3 is substantial in weight and sturdiness, I decided it was foolhardy to think about using a tripod close to cliff edge. I do have fairly steady hands, and do lose some to camera shake, but sometimes the light can change dramatically in the time it takes to set up a tripod. In the ones above, the light was constantly changing.

Good thinking, one of Tess' favourite tripods is at the bottom of a cliff near our house. We're just happy the camera wasn't on it.

I shoot my 645N hand-held almost exclusively. It is so well-designed ergonomically that I can keep it steady at 1/30 with the A 45mm. And that's film, so no chimping with instant do-over. I'm very happy with my 645N.

The Kodak Medalist II 6x9, however, needs a tripod pretty much all of the time.

For landscapes I'm close to 100% on the tripod, I'm a great advocate for grads so a tripod is essential really. Also, I like the more considered approach of sticking it on the tripod. Not only am I not scared of the cliff edge, I have the rather bad habit of putting it over my shoulder with the camera on the end like carrying a shovel and m promising myself to stop as it's an awful lot of weight for the QR plate to hold.

I take most of my landscape images on a tripod, Portraits mostly handheld. One reason Im hoping for more Image stabilized lenses. Unless of course its too dark and have to drag the shutter way down.

Love the image however, is there an option to reduce the CA in the leaves of the trees? I'm surprised to see this.

Susan
SusanB, there was a very small amount of CA in the original Raw file. Seems it got worse in the editing phase, Im re-editing the image. I need to slow down and not edit after midnight I guess. But your right, it shouldnt be there at all.
