These are excellent.
The first one is actually amazing!
I figured your MF was something like a Hassy. I like the square format for some portraits. My MF Mamiya rb67 is a 6x7 ratio rather than 6x6 but with a d850 have the option to drop downfrom 46 mp to 36 mp with 4x5 ratio or 30 mp for square. The crop is visible in the view finder and easy to switch having programmed it to the video record button near the shutter button
@mrca yes, I use hasselblad, but can you tell me what's the point of writing all this stuff about crop factors in D850 ?
If I need square or a lot of detail I use Hasselblad, If don't- I use Leica for 35/50mm or Nikon with 105mm
Mamiya is nice camera, which I've been using for a while, but lenses for me are too boring (sorry )- that is very nice camera for studio stuff
Kacper11, studio is precisely what I use the rb for, with studio strobes and a 7 foot octa or with fresnels flooded for razor sharp shadows at the other extreme. I like the ability of the d850 to select the format based on the image I am capturing and seeing it in the view finder. I am a portrait photographer and tend to stay with the 4x5 ratio or square depending on what I am looking to accomplish with the movement of the viewers eye in the frame and if the composition lends itself to either format. Shooting headshots, I would be cropping in post because 2x3 is too tall. I like the 6x7 ratio of the RB for portraiture, I find it more versatile than square. I understand how you feel about lenses, they will have to pry my Nikon 135 2.o dc from my cold dead fingers... unless it gets an up date that improves the bokeh and and at the same time reduces ca.
All of these are great. I especially love #13.
Wow, thats very nice!
