Do you have any access to X-Rite ColorMunki Photo, i1Pro, i1Pro2 or i1iSis spectrophotometer? In such case you could try to re-linearise the printer using Epson ColorBase2 software...

The sample I had for tests printed flawlessly under 10.10.3, and it's not easy to make something wrong in OS X printing workflow...

The simple answer to every photography question is "if you don't know that you need it, then you don't need it".
Be critical of your images and the needs become apparent.
If you need full frame or medium format or 50MP or whatever, then it will be obvious.

Phase One LS 28 mm f/4.5 Aspherical super wide angle lens  New $6,000  selling $4995--this has been used twice--honestly, it's just too heavy for my liking and I tend to favor images from longer lenses.

Here's the "official" blurb:

The Phase One AF 28mm f/4.5 LS Wide Angle Lens are designed for maximum image quality and freedom of choice. When used with the Phase One P+ digital backs, the image quality is further enhanced through advanced digital optimization in Capture One, the professional raw processing software supplied from Phase One.

Not only have all lenses have been measured and profiled for automated enhancement in Capture One, also data regarding the specific position of the lens elements are captured and used for image optimization. This leads to absolute leading image quality with unique replication of the true colors, details and lightning of the captured moment. Phase One Digital lenses uses ecoglass, which contains no lead or arsenic, securing both better image quality and a nature-friendly policy.

This full-frame ultra wide angle lens is the world’s first medium format 28mm lens that can be used for film and digital backs. The use of aspheric lens elements produces outstanding optical performance.

The 28mm f4.5 D is a full-frame, ultrawide lens that utilizes the latest aspheric lens technology to produce high resolution and large image circle coverage for film and digital backs. Since wide angle lenses can cause color shift problems with digital backs (due to the extreme angle at which light rays hit the sensor), the Phase One Digital 28mm f/4.5 D has been designed to direct light rays so that they are parallel when they hit the sensor – producing maximum sharpness, color accuracy and contrast.

Unlike conventionally designed digital lenses, the 28mm f/4.5 D Aspherical was designed with the requirement that it works with digital and film systems. It is the world’s first 28mm medium format lens with this capability. The Phase One Digital AF 28mm f/4.5 D is ideal for a wide range of applications, including commercial, architectural and outdoor photography.

illustrted lens is from P1 and not the actual lens.  If anyone is serious about it I'll take a few images.  Mine looks like this however. Smiley

Same question for you:

I have a few questions and perhaps somebody could help me.

I owned a P45 and then moved to a IQ160. Camera is still a AFIII.

1. So there is no upgrade option on the camera, so I have to buy that new. If I buy online the camera and keep my current back, what warranty do I have on the camera ? 1 year or 5 years ?

2. If I want to upgrade th IQ160 to the the IQ360 and buy the camera as well what do I get ? Warranty wise ? What do I get as accessories ? Case ? Backpack interior ? 2 batteries or 4 batteries? nothing ?

thanks a lot for the help!

Thanks to to Luminous Landscape and Kevin for the coverage.  It is appreciated.

The new offering looks to be worthy of consideration.  I shoot both DLSR (Nikon D3x and D810 and best available lenses) and MF (IQ180 with Phase DF or Cambo WRS and best available lenses).  I will be evaluating over the next short period of time.

Hi,
My take is that a high MP camera is best used on tripod anyway,

For many applications high MP cameras are too much. When resolution is approaching 10x8 the set up is going to be the same, not much hand holding there!!
It's obviously been easier to ramp up MP than dynamic range (real range, however you want to define it) and latitude in exposure cf film curves at exposure not applied in post to massage the data.

I'm surprised no one picked up on the cost comparison. Michael, quite accurately, placed the competition in Leica, Hasselblad land, the question posed though was against the 645Z much as the A7R and the camera we don't name, a bit like a certain play by Shakespeare, the 8*0 are in a similar bracket, not a percentage but a decimal point different when the output is still a stream of digital data and what you place both in front of and behind the body to generate that data is vastly more important.

All the gear, no idea.

(Apologies to Kevin. Did I get it right this time Jeff?).

Better, but you don't seem to grok the gist of what I was saying...learn how to behave (and post) here on LuLa before embarrassing yourself by not grokking the way to express yourself. (If you don't know what Grok means, Google it–it's a test :~).

There are 35mm lenses offering an outstanding look, I own my share of those, but there is something subtly different when you combine a larger sensor and longer lenses. This can be reproduced with stitching, but it doesn't apply well to most situations where MF cameras are used professionally, be it fashion, architecture,...

A myth often repeated. There is no difference using a longer lens os stitching compared to shooting in a single frame with whatever camera as long as the FOV and distance from the subject is the same.

Ok, so I'm ordering the Fx and think my Phase One 645DF+ body is worth more than the $2000 Phase will give on trade. I have about 2 weeks to sell this or will let it go to P1.  I'm thinking $3000 for mint camera, low actuations, box, body caps.  If you don't agree, make an offer Smiley  I have not seen any listed on eBay or even on LL

I'm traveling now but will send pics to whoever is seriously interested.
