If "difficulty" had any relevance it might be the difficulty of making a picture that interests other people; and plainly, as social creatures, we're wired to recognize faces and posture, and detect relationships and status.

Rocks and trees? How do you make those interesting? ;-)
There's two types of difficulty with photography. How tricky it was to get that shot, waiting up a tree for two weeks to catch a glimpse of a snow leopard and then as you mention the difficulty of making easy to capture  something look good. I was talking more about the former.

Alrighty, I seem to have resolved the problem.  I'm six prints in with my usual settings and no lines. 

I pulled the front and top off the printer and cleaned up everything around the wiper area as well as what I could see on the print head.   Let me tell you how much garbage was hanging out in all of those areas.  Many q tips and dabs of rubbing alcohol later and she seems to be running a lot better. Even sounds better.   I pulled half inch long pieces of ink and debris guck out of multiple areas, some were even on the print head.

Hi Jeremy, Good to see you back. If you go back and read the posts carefully you'll see that I agree with you on the question of being a one-trick pony. Like you, I do it all. I prefer street over all other genres, but not to exclusion of the rest of the world. I do stand by what I said about relative difficulties.
Been really busy with house renovation of late which hopefully soon will mean not only will guests be able to stay again, but I will have a decent sized photo studio at home.  Grin So only time for the occasional post on LuL of late.
I think something's difficulty is relative to how good you are at that task. Some may find street harder than landscape and vice versa.

It does make them an "equally happy master of none" though.
Why don't come right out and say my photography is crap then Slobodan? As that what you are repeatedly implying.
The big problem with your childish insults is that I'm actually pretty good at a whole host of things and that includes many genres of photography. I call myself a photographer, not a landscape photographer or street photographer or portrait photographer for a reason.

Iím considering investing under $12,000.  What I hope to accomplish with this investment is to begin a career in photography, which is currently a hobby.

My current system is the Fuji X-T1 which I donít plan to get rid of and love for reasons I wonít go into here.
I also currently have a rail camera I have not used yet Ė Calumet with a few lenses Iíll be pulling out of my grandfatherís basement in a couple weeks and an Epson 4990 for scanning film to Digital.

The systems Iím considering:

Tachihara Ė Large Format Film (For portability in field)
Cambo Wide DS Ė DB
Contax Ė DB
Phase One/Mamiya Ė DB
Hasselblad H4D 30
Alpa 12 TC - DB
Pentax 645z or 645d

What I like to shoot:  Landscape, Portrait, Model, Minimal, Night/City Scape, Still Life, Macro & Action In your price range I strongly suggest a DSLR. DSLRs are extremely versatile, with medium format unless you go for the most recent 50MP CMOS systems there is always a compromise be it poor high iso performance, long exposure performance etc. And no MF SLR camera has the AF performance of a DSLR (35mm) Most of us that own Medium Format Digital have multiple systems for that reason
Why MF?  The look/feel of medium format seems exceptional beyond what Iíve been able to produce within the limitations of my gear.  I particularly like to be able to capture the detail and crop photographs that arenít framed perfectly.  Iím hoping to capture greater depth of contrast, and fine detail sharpness. Again, In your price range I strongly suggest a DSLR (35mm). To handily beat a camera like a D810 in regards to detail under a wide range of conditions you really need one of the better and more $ Medium Format Digital systems

Some Questions:
1.    What is the difference between technical setup (Cambo) vs Medium Format, why do niche photographers go technical?
2.   Should Lenses be my focus, and I should be looking at older Digital Backs (within my price range) like the P20ís?
3.   Given that sometimes I like to go into the field for a few days, is technical even an option?
4.   Given my broad range of what I like to shoot, should I be looking for the most flexible system?
5.   Why do the H Digital Backs seem less expensive second hand?
7.   I feel like having an exceptional set up sets a photographer apart from the competition, but part of me thinks I have a lot to learn and should wait for a year or so before making a huge depreciating investment. Quality of work (including post-production), work ethic, client relations, self-promotion and service will set you apart, not your gear

All that said a Medium Format Digital back is a great piece of gear to have. It is versatile in the sense that you can mount it in a wide range of platforms, from tech cameras to SLRs like the PhaseOne/Mamiya bodies, Hasselblad H bodies, Contax and Hasselblad V among others. But not all backs are the same there is a HUGE range in price, quality, performance and user experience. Hence, it's best to work with a dealer (I use DigitalTransitions in NY) unless you REALLY know your stuff already, in which case you would not be asking in this forum in the first place!

Keeping the camera center of gravity over the head is more important with larger cameras (DSLRs). With small mirrorless cameras, this doesn't matter as much. The other advantage of an L bracket is that if you generally like the subject from that tripod position, you can switch back and forth from landscape to portrait position in seconds and still maintain level horizon, etc. A third possible advantage or disadvantage is that the camera grip gets bulkier (and camera weighs a few more ounces). I shoot a variety of subjects but find it easier to keep the L bracket on all the time. I suppose that if I knew on a certain occasion that I would not use a tripod or that I would use only telephotos with tripod rings, I could take the L bracket off for that occasion, but in practice it is just easier to keep the L bracket on.
