The Lilliput uses the same batteries as the Canon - LP-E6 type. These can be bought quite cheaply (non-Canon brand) and last about 1.5 hrs. I use the set-up for long exposures and if the wind is blowing strong I can simply remove the monitor (attached using an Arca-Swiss type plate) from the articulated arm. I will try and post some pics of my set-up this weekend if it helps?

Well, look at that, I am the example of the bad student  Cheesy

I guess the answer to my worries lies in the quote I embded in the same post.

Thank you for your answer !

Your other examples in today's phlog were all very interesting, can't wait for the next !

I like it, but I wonder if the stuff in the distance is more interesting than what's in the foreground?

There's a lot to see and photograph between Moab and Yellowstone.  I've done that drive well over a dozen times and have taken several different routes, all of which have gone through some pretty spectacular country.

Here are a few areas to consider:

Logan Canyon
Steamboat Springs
Dinosaur NM
Mesa Falls
Wasatch Mountains, i.e. Albion Basin
Uinta Mountains - Mirror Lake Highway
Flaming Gorge
Grand Teton NP

Yep. That's all good stuff. Dinosaur has the additional benefit of spectacular natural beauty, and whimsical kitschy weirdness, all in one package.

As the image has been demosaiced, I don't see what difference it would make what color the pixel was (using Imatest, that is), but perhaps it does?

Ah, but that's the point.  It isn't demosaiced.  The way I showed you it is just the two green raw channels straight off the sensor.

The annoying thing about these printer service problems is that it doesn't match the service we get from Canon on cameras and lenses. I've had to have one lens and one camera repaired in the last few months, and both were handled quickly and efficiently. I have no complaints at all with the photo equipment side.

If you use ETTR then you are certain that the highlights will have detail.

Then, it's a matter of choosing how much deep shadow you really want.

I believe that many photographers believe that they have to alywars have visible detail in shadow areas. That's a technology trick, not photography. Photography should be a process where you the photographer decide what you want people to see and not to see, just as we do with how we frame the image.

It will be very interesting to see where tech camera land is in say 5 years. I have no idea. There are both bright and dark scenarios.

While tech cam manufacturers really depend on lenses and backs that play together, the lens makers (Schneider and Rodenstock (=Qioptiq)) will survive even if they discontinue the whole lens lines, the "large format digital" category is more about tradition and prestige than moneymaking. Copal shutters have already been discontinued, and while stock still exist and you do get a Copal shutter if you buy new today, it won't last forever, and no attractive electronic shutter alternative has yet appeared. DHW HS-1000 is promising, but compared to the Copals they are crazy expensive (~$2100 per shutter was last I heard, with a pancacke camera mount on that you'll be paying more for shutter and mount than glass for most lenses).

There's lots of interesting sensor technology growing in the small sensor market (ie mobile phones these days) but if it will ever reach MF sized sensors is unclear. In the best case we do get back-illuminated instead of the current front-illuminated designs:

which opens up for great wide-angle performance, even with relatively small pixels.

In the darkest of scenarios the sensors will just continue to become worse concerning color cast and crosstalk, making even Rodie wides limited, and Schneider and Qioptiq don't make anything new and just wait until the market self-dies, at least the wide-angle side of it. I guess Sinar-style studio product photography with longer lenses and clunky electronic shutter systems will still have its niche.

In a bright scenario we do get a wide-angle-capable 645-sized CMOS, we get a worthy replacement of Copals (or a restart of Copal manufacturing), and lenses like the SK28 and SK35 start working great again, and maybe Schneider even makes new versions for those that needs even sharper images.

If Copal no longer will be the standard shutter and instead some electronical shutter, I'd like to see an electronic interface from the tech cam bodies for registering movement settings in the EXIF data. Although I find the 100% mechanical operation charming, I'm sure "regular joe" would prefer having lens/aperture/shutter-speed/tilt/swing/rise/fall/shift/focus settings all registered (would mean that people could skip LCC by the way, and open up for automatic digital lens corrections like we have on regular cameras). That together with live-view and high ISO CMOS would actually make tech cams user friendly Smiley
