Is the poor man's MF (the "Brenizer Method") accepted?

This was shot with a K5+50/1.4...


Assembled from 15 handheld pics, virtual sensor size is 62x51mm (but still with a 50/1.4 in front of it!), final resolution is 143MP (beats the 645D, huh?).

I'm still trying to get the hang of it, composition is quite hard when you cannot see the whole picture in the viewfinder...

Luc, this is probably my favourite out of your recent shots from Europe I have seen so far. Great work!

Good results with the medalist too.

Thanks, Tuco, scimmiaz, fs999, goddo31.

Looking at my shots from Europe, and what I can get from 6x9, in my mind the P645 has become my 35mm i.e. the smallest I would like to shoot. I have started selling some of my 35mm equipment and will likely keep only two bodies with a set of lens each.
LX with K18/3.5, 28/2, 30/2.8,50/1.2, 85/1.8, 135/2.5 because it is a nice collection that I would hate to break apart and Canon P with 35,50,100) just in case I still want something light and small outside of a TLR. So I am also also likely to sell the FA Limited.

Call me crazy but I am also thinking about selling my Hasselblad 500 CM system even if most of it has been CLA.
Body with Accumate D, WLF, 45 non metered prism, two A12, meter knob, normal, knob, level, strap, quick release plate, Distagon CT 50, Planar CT 80 and Sonnar 150 plus metal hoods and some filters.

I would keep the 645 for traveling, TLR and Medalist for easy carrying around and the two Fuji GSW/GW for landscape. I have a Berlebach (MF) on its way on top of my Benro carbon with Markins Q3 (35mm).
I just find that outside of the excitement of new equipment, I just have too many cameras/lenses to shoot with - see the pdf attached.

Cheers,

Luc

Thanks Colton. Your WLF shots look fine to me. I am currently practicing with mine too, I find it challenging but fun. Will get some of the rolls developed soon and see whether I actually managed to keep it level and nail the focus!

Here is one more firework shot. I actually only took two with the 67. I think next time I will reverse my strategy and concentrate on the 67 over the digital.

Pentax 67, SMC 105/2.4 @ F16, Provia 100F @ ~30seconds

Thanks Jason, it is fun shooting handheld with the WLF. I'm starting to get used to the reverse image thing. I would love to have a grid screen to help with leveling.
I got a big soft shutter release of fleabay and put it on my 67. I found releasing the shutter a little tough when the camera was down low and the soft release really helps with that.

Another fantastic fireworks shot you posted.

Great shot Luc.

Thanks - this one seem to have made the unanimity. That was the first shot that grab me when I was looking at the roll before scanning.

Cheers,

Luc, nothing wrong with consolidating your gear once you have worked out what you like
I am already starting to wonder if I should do this too, as I am getting more and more into 120 with the 67.

Pentax 67, SMC 105/2.4 @F16, Fuji Provia 100F

I have not yet developed 120 film myself, but this week received the equipment to start doing some myself. As it happens, I can bring it to a local shop. They also offer a decent scanning service, but I have a better scanner myself (though my technique is still not up to par, due to a lack of time). So I scan myself. I would not print myself though, those prints may not last really long and the running costs are considerable. Again, I have a good local service for proper photo-printing.

If I hadn't just picked up a Rolleiflex, I would have liked to have that set. Why not keep the Blad? I love the mechanical goodness.
