More from Oregon, again all from my Yashicamat shooting either expired Portra 400NC or 160NC. Portra really suits Oregon I think.

The Yashica TLRs are great. I just bought a second 124G and have expired Portra 160NC in the first one (220 format). It's a great combination.

I'm starting to get to grips with the 645Z after 45 years of shooting 35mm (I started with a 120 Agfa folding camera). Any (including brutal) criticism welcome as I'm not yet sure myself where I'm heading.

For anybody interested....
This is a Dassault Mercure. In the early 70's, Dassault decided to try and grab some of Boeing's 737 market. With huge loans from the French government and a break even build of 200 aircraft, the total order book was 10 examples (all bought by Air Inter). The production line was dismantled in 1975 and the last aircraft withdrawn from service in 1995.

Nothing field wise to criticise about the shot. It is very well exposed and composed (Including DOF). Also an interesting subject. The only criticism I can summon up is that the pp has rendered the image a little 'chalky' as shown on this forum. Slightly dry HDR effectish. Maybe drop mid tones a little and let some more dark areas be darker. Maybe a little less sharpening, not much but maybe. It's definitely a keeper and the latitude of the Z's Raw files means you can go almost anywhere with it. Hope that's not too negative.

I also like the shot and was thinking it looked a little over-sharpened too. I found when I started shooting with my 645D if I used a Nik preset I had developed for my crop cameras it could come out looking oversharpened so I had to dial it back a little for the D.

Also when I use topaz plugins , via PS6, I always dial the opacity back to about 40 via edit when saved. I don't think they designed their effects for anything as dynamic and pixel rich as the Z.

Thanks for the appraisal Unkipunki and Matt. Unfortunately, the edit to the post was to reload the image after a little additional sharpening because I thought it wasn't quite there....wrong!
I'm off to the Pyrenees next week so I'll have the type of subject that I bought the 645Z for.

Amazing what the 645Z can do at high ISO!

ISO 6400, handheld on a moving ferry, 1/30 @ f4.5 on 28-45 (at 28mm) with image stabilisation on:

I'm appropriately amazed (and delighted ;~).

Another from the garden, this time with the 6 stacked images from the 28mm-45mm. The conditions were very still which helped. You may notice what looks like motion blur in the tree canopy. This is in fact a cameo by the infamous Scottish midge. They adore humid, still, and overcast conditions. I packed up and ran in record time.
