Justin,

Nobody would want to deny you the right to be and remain a photographer. It is like everywhere in life, things change and evolve. If you want to walk with these changes, then you have to be ready to see things differently and be open to learn a few new things.

Digital photography is not the "absorbing monster" which takes away your freedom of shooting, in the contrary, it does open you so many new opportunities.

There are in fact very little basic things to learn and know, when it comes to digital. It starts with a software to capture your raw files: this can be learned in a couple of days. The rest is basically the same as in analog photography, the optical rules have not changed, and there is little "old" theory which does not apply to digital as well.

That is my opinion.

Best regards,
Thierry

Perhaps here is the wrong place to mention it but this is me all over. I'm hopeless with matters IT, does this mean that I am a bad photographer in today's brave new digital world? Am I to be denied the chance to express myself as fully as I wish because I prefer photography to messing with binary logic?

It is easy to become so absorbed in the mechanism that we forget the function.

In my line of work I use mirror up/self-timer about 99.9% of the time. On the Mk3, this can be set using one of Canon's fab Custom Functions. You then simply press the shutter button, the mirror is raised and the shutter fires two (or ten) seconds later. Brilliant!

On the Hassie, you have to move you finger to a button hidden behind the grip and press it twice in quick succession! This raises the mirror. You then press the shutter button and the shutter fires two seconds later. Crazy! Even worse, you have to do this EVERY time. You cannot, as far as I know, set it as an action as on on the Canon.

Hassie must enter the wonderful world of custom functions. There are six menu items (with a few sub-menus) on the Hassie, there are dozens on a Canon.

Another thing..........1/3 increments for both shutter speed and f/stop are mandatory in this day and age.

Perhaps you should enter the wonderful world of instruction manuals?    

Everything you mention can be done on the H3D in the ....wait for it.... Custom Functions menu!

Including the 1/3 stop increments. (Custom Option 2)

For the self timer you can also set it to remain ON after exposure so you don't have to reset it. (Custom Option 22)

In the Self Timer menu you can also ask the mirror to stay up after exposure... or go down... actually everything you ask.

Easy eh.

Or, why don't you lock the mirror and simply use a cable release?

Jo,

Thanks for the advice.

But, can you set the shutter button to SIMULTANEOUSLY raise the mirror, followed by firing the shutter two seconds later? i.e. Turn what is now three actions into one?

Many thanks.

Photography is a technical art form. I believe painters usually have to learn to draw and use paints, can take them some time to become good at it.

Edmund,
I've seen you have used the word "foobarr" a couple times on LL.  I can't seem to find the definition of it, although I've only looked in the Apple dictionary.
I can guess at it by the context but could you give me a better definition?
Thanks

I believe foobar is an acronym based on the verb foo, Fooed Up Beyond All Recognition.

Wikipedia lists this as FUBAR, but in my day hackers used foobar, I believe.

I use it as a transitive verb eg. "to foobar exposure"; I guess the passive should then be "foobarred", as "foobared" sounds even stranger.

Or maybe it's just my english that is strange, as I mostly talk to myself, here in Paris

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FUBAR

Wikipepdia  says hackers don't use the term for its primary meaning, I diagree, I do

Usually you start with a function f, revise it to ""foo", then you mod it to foobar" and after another mod it is so convoluted that it doesn't deserve a name anymore

Got it.  I looked up in Wiki but used the double r that came up with nothing.
Thanks

Actually, I always understood Fubar (proper spelling) as a military term, meaning "F_cked Up Beyond All Recognition".  I don't know if it originated in the military, but it is commonly used there, as in discussing orders from the CO in the tent way behind the front line:

"They want us to just charge right in there with no cover at all? Man, that is FUBAR."

A number of historical books on military campaigns will bear this out. It was certainly in use at least by WWII in the American military.

Trust the military to sex up their language

It's still in common use in the US Army in exactly that form, especially in male-only front-line units (infantry, tanks, artillery, etc.). Support and training units (which commonly include females) tend to be a bit more PC in their choice of terms in common usage.

I think so.  I reckon if you told the Self timer to stay active (Custom Function) and then set the self timer to MIRROR UP then DELAY (Self Timer Menu) then that should do it!
