Take a look at Phase One's web site. They have several videos of just how rugged their backs are. In one the place it in dry ice and then pull it out, place a battery in it..and then start it up with no problems.  www.phaseone.com

Sorry that I didn't have the proper link earlier, but I was on my iPhone.  Here is the link to Phase One's Extreme videos:

They gotta leave the humor to the pros.  They're about 4,000 out of work writers in LA that would love this gig.

BTW:  Are these backs sold as refurbished, or demo? (insert a smiley face here)

The Mamiya is known as a "value" camera - it is not known for extreme sharpness however, the Phase backs will I believe have no problems working in the cold. Alpa TC and Schneider is tough and precise but you have no reflex view.

Frankly if extreme versatility and robustness is what you want nothing can beat the Canon. Many Canon guys have the Zeiss Distagon 21mm lens which outresolves any wide made by Canon, and there are also some interesting Leica lenses which can be adapted to Canon.

There's a reason why Canon and Nikon have been so successful, and that's robustness and versatility - I think in any craft one needs to be able to choose the tool for a job, and in your case MF is going to be a liability out in the field.

Thank's all for your advise, it very helpfull.
I have and love the Distagon 21mm (and contax/Zeiss 28mm), but would like to have even more image quality for big prints (I am working with two gallery, here in Chamonix)
Yes, I am working most of the time in high altitude but I am mountain guide so I can walk and carry some stuff in the back country without to many troubles.
So I am going to test the Mamiya AFD II+ P45 and the Hassy H3D39Mpix and look if one of this option is worth the extra cost and weight compare to the Canon 1DsIII.
Best regard's

The images on your website are stunning! Best wishes to you in your pursuit.

Two quick notes on the Hasselblad system. 1) The Hasselblad 28mm accepts the same 95mm filters used on some of the other "H" lenses (35mm & zoom) in case you wish to use a polarizer or protective UV filter. The Mamiya 28mm has no filter thread. 2) I would recommend that you take a look at the Image Bank II option. It is very light and compact and provides 100GB of storage reducing or eliminating the need to change CF cards. It also provides power to the back, when attached via the FireWire cable, and I expect could be kept inside a coat pocket with the cable running to the back. I haven't tried this and would be curious to know if you find it a practical solution or not.

Jeff, test drive the H3DII39, not the H3D39 - the II has the 3" display and is the newer model (no internal fan, it is heat sink cooled, and has other features). Best of luck.

The GPS module is also available for Hasselblad "H" series now. Might be of interest to you.

Thank's again for all your advises.
I will meet a dealer this afternoon to test the p25 et p45+ solution against my 1DsIII and decide if the difference is worth the investisment
One question more; witch 28mm, Mamiya ou Hasselblad give the best IQ ?

Hi,
I have "tested" a Mamiya 645AFDIII + P25 + new 28mm via My Canon 1DsIII with 21mm Zeiss Distagon and a Hassy H2 + P45+ and 80 mm via my Canon  with a 50 mm Macro.
P25 is very good but no so much difference to justify the investisment (But IQ is still a little bit better)
P45+, just awesome... and perfect for what I am looking for (landscape).
So I have ordered a P45 (the P45+ is out of my budjet...) and a MamiyaAFDII.
I am just a little bit disapointed by the new Mamiya 28mm, lots of ac and corner softness problem....
Best regard's and thank's for your help

I think you will find the same,or similar, corner softness on the H 28, as well
but when files are processed through Flexcolor or Phocus you will have excellent software
correction of CA to the point you won't know it exists.
The other advantage of the H28,if it is of importance to you,is that the H28 has front
threads and can accept a polarizer,and other filters of course

Did you process your P45 files through the most current version of CaptureOne?
I was under the impression that Mamiya lenses had access to CA controls not previously
available to CapOne/Phase users

Hmmm, I will have to check again, but I generally turn off DAC and I do not see the softness you mention in the corners. Are you talking about vignetting? I really like the quality of the 28mm from corner to corner, I do not see softness. Be well.
