I want a Hasselblad :( but the 1DsII will do just fine for now :D

even 5D or 40D will do the job, no need for something more, i just collect too many bodies for just collecting and fun. ;):p

If i got enough money then i will collect 50mp first place, so selling my 39mp will not give me enough money so i don't have enough to add to get 50mp, but really my eyes was on 50mp not 39mp, but my budget that time was closer for 39mp, and too bad that if i got 50mp i can upgrade to 60mp with no much loss, but how i can get rid of 39mp with great deal.

True... I always wanted to play with a H3DII. Never got the chance. Oh well, one day. :D

oh really?!!!
the dealer of Hasselblad here is becoming a friend, and i went to him many times, just last month or say this month as well i didn't go to him, but yesterday i went there but they are closed in Saturday, i will go to him soon, but in the past before i purchase my hassy i was playing with 31mp and 39mp, and i did a mistake to do that as i couldn't resist anymore and bought it by the beginning of this year.
Medium Formats are really something else, i got amazing sharp and beautiful color with my kit lens HC 2.8/80mm, i played with 120mm macro at the store and i completely blown away, no Canon or Nikon lens the sharpest can come closer.

Too bad i want that 120mm so bad, and i read in Haaselblad that 100mm is the sharpest, oh my, if that 120mm sharpness bleeding me so extreme, how will that 100mm be then, i don't want to try or imagine, i know myself, i am so weak, very weak.

These ultra high mega pixel medium format cameras, do they actually capture more stops of light then the full frame sensors we're dealing with, with our Canon cameras? For the longest time, the real difference with film was that there was no need for HDR methodology when shooting as film always had a greater dynamic range. Do these medium format digital camera completely solve this issue and gap or is there still some need for better performance in this specific area as newer models are brought out?

Cheers!

And i want to know how the film cameras can do shots with better HDR or DR than digital? Also medium format cameras whether film or digital has larger sensor and better DR than 35mm digital. I have a dark shot or say so underexposed shot from my Hasselblad, i didn't try to increase the exposure and see how it performs for that against Canon or Nikon DSLRs, about sharpness and colors i saw it was the winner, i didn't test something else, and the ISO i don't care much as DSLRs doing better than film itself, so medium format has its own class and i don't want to get down DSLRs but also i won't praise MF, also we shouldn't try to find many or some excuses about digital MF because they are expensive, i will always choose digital MF for studio and portraits and even landscapes if so, and also higher mp can be so handy if we know when and where to use that high mp, it will be very ridiculus and so silly if those companies incresing that mp every year for nothing or worthless.

Thanks for responding Tareq!

Helpful info!

I got a bit bored today and dragged out my old reel to reel to try doing a "glamor" shot of it!

Nice shot!

I am almost bored for almost 2 months now, and nothing to shoot or say nothing around inspiring and interesting to shoot, with the weather of about 45-50 degree i even can't breathing.

Good to see this thread still going.

Couple of shots...

ISO 100:

ISO 51200 (3200 + 4EV in PP). I was messing around to see how much I could salvage the shot in post. It was completely dark in the room and I was just impressed focusing was dead on.

Nice shooting David!

Yeah, I can still remember the days when I had my 5D and had to turn the lights up to get a focus lock, switch the lens into MF to not lose the position, go back and turn down the lights and then take the shot. I haven't had to do that once with my 1DsMkII !

Cheers!

Thanks Ghost! You are single-handedly keeping this thread going.

The focus is truly amazing for sure.

Couple of more at ISO 1600 and f/2.8 and the use of outer points. No need to focus and recompose like my 30D.
