Kudos on the three part video showing how the image was captured through to the framing.  This was extremely well done and clearly presented and I continue to learn things from the series.

I just watched the final edit myself this morning. I'm pleased with the way it turned out.

Anyone who wants to understand shooting with an MF back on a technical camera, tethered in a studio type setting can benefit from it.

Tools used?

Alpa camera, Tilt adaptor, IQ180 back, Disto Laser rangefinder, Arca Cube head, studio flash, Capture One tethered, iPad tethered, Jeff's Photoshop techniques, focus bracketing, and a valuable antique violin.

Oh yes... a dining room table and a bottle brush.

Thanks Michael but one further question.  How do you deal with the focus inaccuracy of the Alpa in the field since it does not have live view.  In the studio shooting you & Jeff took a number of shots and checked the focus depth via the tethered image.  I suspect that this is not the type of approach that one can do on a field shot.

The IQ180 now has Live View.

I also find that the Disto laser works outdoors for all practical distances. Just not an issue.

I can only dream about owning any Medium Format equipment. I t was fun and informative watching the videos and your fingerprints will be around for at least another 200 years. Always entertaining watch Jeff and you play off each other.

Was at Vistek on Queen Street in Toronto this morning picking up some Canson Infinity Baryta Photographique in 13x19 and 17x22 size and Micahel, your name came up as I was talking to the Cashier Krista. All good of course.

Have you tried Ilford GFS? It's my usual paper, but I bought some of the Canson after seeing Michael's enthusiasm for it. I'm really struggling to see an significant difference between the two (printer is an Epson 3800); if anything, there seems to be a little less shadow detail in the Canson. I'm using the manufacturer's profiles, which might, I suppose, be less than optimal.

Hi jeremy,

in a different video ( I guess one of the brand new Lr 4 videos), Michael states that these two papers seem to be the same, or deliver at least very simmiliar prints. Also the canned profiles seem to be nearly the same.

So, for me, I decieded to check for the price and buy the cheapest one of the two, which in Germany is Ilford Gold Fibre Silk.

Best wishes

My understanding is they are identical - its the same paper.

So my critical faculties might not be as blunt as I thought. What a relief!

Thanks
