Still going through the soccer stuff, but here's a side by side of the same wedding group  shot with CMOS and CCD.  The IMGP files are from the Pentax 645Z, while the A659 files are from the Hasselblad H4D-50.
RAWs are at

Given that I shoot in all types of places, the ability to push the ISO is huge.  Oh how I wish I had the Z for one of my favorite shots - the noise level on the Hass is just too much for me.

I'm spoiled in that I live 5 minutes from Glazers here in Seattle, so anything Hasselblad related I can rent.  I'd have to purchase the Z and the lenses I wanted to work with regularly, but can rent from LensRentals anything special.

Thank you very much for sharing these with us, I'm slowly building collection of various files from all over the place. admins from pentaxforums also released their full review with a lot of samples to download and there are links to raw files available on fstopper too (also ISO25600 file).

One thing puzzles me though, some DNG files can be opened and processed in CaptureOne (I use version 7), others can't. My theory is that the ones that can be opened in C1 were probably shot as .PEF files (original Pentax raw files) and then converted to DNG using Adobe's converter and the ones which C1 can't open/process are the ones that were shot as DNG - can anybody confirm that this is the case?

(also covering them again to dng from DNG doesn't do the trick and C1 won't open them)

The 5% figure is based on sample shots published on test sites. I always try to find images witch have texture in corners but perhaps one in twenty have corner details. Corners use to be sky or foreground.

I don't say corners are not important, just saying that it is difficult to find images with good corner detail. I actually care a lot about the stuff, but it is just that it is hard to find good samples, and that also applies to my own pictures.

Best regards

I got no idea how you can come up with a percentage of images that need good corners...seems impossible to do. I know the type of images that I shoot, I have details in the corners and when printed large, these corners need to look good as people do come up close to large prints to see the picture within the picture as they examine all parts of the photo. That's the real beauty of large prints, you can stand back and take in the entire scene and you can also come in close and take in the different details in the photo that could not be fully appreciated from a distance. Many landscapes flow throughout the photo, quite often starting in one corner and ending in another corner.

I just don't agree that corners are not important in landscapes. I can see this in portraits as quite often people use wide apertures to blur out the background and corners...but with landscapes, most often the entire scene is in focus, including the corners.

I find the third party batteries are good enough and represent a significant saving over the Sony branded ones. I have one spare 3rd party battery and I rotate use between it and the Sony. They seem to last about the same or at least the 3rd party battery doesn't seem to be noticeably worse.

Setup your phone to copy pix to iCloud. Setup Lightroom to autoimport from your iCloud pictures directory.

How can I get iPhone 6 Plus JPGs automatically moved into the Pictures folder on my MacBook Pro and imported into LR5 at the same time?

Ideally the JPGs on my iPhone would be automatically deleted after they’ve been moved onto the laptop.  

I have zero interest in using LR on my iPhone.
I looked at using LR Mobile but it seems to store the JPGs in the Creative Cloud.

I’m not sure what pathway the JPGs would follow to travel from my iPhone to the laptop.
The way I get this to work now is to use a wired connection and import them from the iPhone.
I do use Apple's iCloud. 
I do subscribe to Adobe’s Creative Cloud

I'm using Mac OS 10.10 (Yosemite) on the laptop, iOS 8.1 on the iPhone and I'm running LR 5.6 on the laptop.
