If you've done the -photographer rounds- its easy to pick up a camera system and begin to use it. However, its critical to be intricately familiar with the vagaries of camera systems during challenging shooting conditions. After shooting slide for several years, I made a 100% move to digital in 2003.

My post-capture work is minimal and I'm migrating from Adobe Lightroom to Phase One's Capture One Pro. I have recently found Digital Nirvana by moving to a system around the Phase One IQ250 Digital back.

I now use the systems below :

  • Medium Format Phase One IQ250 Digital Back
  • Hasselbtad H5x Camera
  • HCD 28mm/4.0
  • HC 3.5-4.5/50-110 mm
  • HC 2.8/80 mm HC 4/210 mm
  • HC 4.5/300 mm
  • Tete Converter H1.7X
  • Alpa STC
  • Alpa 12-XY Mark IV
  • Rodenstock HR Alpagon 4.0/40mm SB
  • Rodenstock HR Alpagon 5.6/70mm SB
  • Schneider Apo-Digitar 4.5/90 mm

My vendor of choice is Capture Integration - give them a be pleasantly surprised.
