If at all something needs to get banned from this forum it's those daft smileys. If you're language skills are not adequate to show you're in a ironic mood, adding a yellow little twinky can be overseen too easily


Fair enough, but this is an international forum and I think it's unrealistic to expect all contributors to have the same standard of ability in the lingua franca: English.

I don't like these 'characters' either, but if they can help to differentiate insult from inadequacy of language, so much the better, and I'd hate to have people refrain from posting simply on grounds of language ability. The only thing I find offensive about the way some write is the intentional lack of respect for conventions, such as the use of i where it should be I. That's just sloppy and inexcusable.

To, too and two are hardly challenges any more than there and their; it would be more pleasant were they not abused.

Other than that, I think we do very well here. I seldom come across posts I can't understand, other than from technical perspectives, of course, which happens often. The thrill of digital.

I appreciate Fred's posts. He does have an ax to grind, but if you strip away some of that his comments are informative. Besides, it's valuable to have a view point challenged. It can reaffirm your opinions or even change them, even if you think Fred's opinions are BS.

How is shooting vertical (portrait) with the HY6 and Credo/IQ backs that don't have the rotating sensor?

Can the Credo or IQ be mounted vertically?

Is the 90 degree prism still available?

There's no IQ back. The Credo can, in very much the same fashion as the non rotating Aptus does, or the 4560.

And yes - the high eye point VF is still available. I think they retail for around 1100 ..I have the price knocking around somewhere from DHW.

Excellent. Great to see Leaf and DHW working together on this.
How is the 90 degree high eyepoint viewfinder with a bigger back on. (digi backs are bigger than the DHW film backs).
Being high eyepoint I'm guessing its a nice fit with a digi back.

TMARK,
I wish I could agree with you on the above as much as I have with nearly everything you post.  I know your thinking, but I feel he's insincere and insulting and mostly trying to knock others and companies down to make himself look better, to prop up his own ego.   Even when he tries to post a positive comment on other's work he finds a way to show he thinks he could have done better.  When he asks others about gear, its all a trap, because he isn't truly interested, he's just baiting people to toss out something he can criticize or knock down in some way later.   It's possible that I got overloaded with negativity from the last months of the political election cycle, but that amount of it in Fred's posts doesn't sit well with me.

I didn't make any real resolutions this year except to get digital negatives working for me, but maybe I should take a break from the forums for a while?

No problem at all. Its mirror based though which makes it really light, but the viewing angles are a bit more limited. But the view is massive, really nice!

Maybe not a bad idea unfortunately...

Hi,

I have mixed feelings. I have seen many posts by Fred, and I really think he tries to be helpful.

My view is that it is OK to share our views, but we need to have respect for the views of others. I don't feel it is OK to put anyones credibility in question.

Best regards
Erik

Fortunately, in cyberspace, it's never too late to let go.

Mirror based "prism type" viewfinders are great. Especially for larger formats as it does keep them light and you get a nice contrasty image.
Regarding the viewing angle it's not really because it's mirror based, but because of the enlargement of the focusing screen.
I have a bit of the same problem with the Fuji gx680 mirror angle finder. I found a great heavy eyecup that really helps
with this type of finder. It's called the bisley scope maximizer. It's actually made for increasing aiming accuracy with high end air rifle scopes.
It's very anatomic and heavy/rigid enough to make it much easier to keep your eye centered. It also significantly increases camera stability when had held
as well as centering your eye when hand held. The Bisley has an internal diameter of 1.25 inches.
