Does anyone know for sure if one can use third party primes (more specifically, Zeiss ZF.2/Milvus lenses) with the newest generation of Nikon teleconverters?  If not, are there other teleconverters on the market which would work?  The camera in question is a Nikon D810.  Of course, autofocus is not an issue.  However, what about aperture control?  Can the aperture be controlled via one of the command dials (as is the case with Zeiss lenses mounted without a teleconverter)?  Sorry, a lot of questions to which I have no dependable answers.  Much appreciation for any help you can offer!

With best wishes,

Is it like when I put my hand in water slowly the water moves, but if I put it in fast I create a wave?

I suspect this is the case, but I'm no authority. My immediate reaction to this news of the detection of gravitational waves, was the implication for the direct detection of Dark Energy and Dark Matter which comprise about 95% of the matter and energy of our universe, according to current theories.

Unfortunately it seems that  dark matter and energy do not exist in nearly dense enough 'clumps' to produce gravitational waves that could be detected by LIGO.

Mark, as a follow up to my earlier post I did submit a ticket to PrintTao and actually got a phone call.  I ended up talking to Darin who was very knowledgeable and very helpful.  There is a bug in the software that won't allow for the 'Cell' size to be independently adjusted without also adjusting the image size.  There is a workaround which hopefully will be eliminated with a software fix.  I need to adjust the Cell size to allow me to have leading and lagging space for canvas wrapping (I print Museum wraps).  There is also a simple way to tell the printer not to cut and also a way to apply cut marks - although not as simple as my Canon software.  I have yet to actually make a print but intend to do so this weekend.  I was very impressed to see the willingness of PrinTao to make sure their software works as intended. 

Thanks much for bringing this software to my attention.

The relationship between creativity and rule-breaking is certainly interesting and not one of identity. Keeping to rules can surely be a creative choice - lots of great artists choose to work within conventions - but maybe not because they don't know any other way or because they regard breaking the rules as forbidden. And I suspect that even in jobs that require a strict adherence to rules, it is best to do it consciously and with awareness that the rules aren't being kept for their own sake.

Keeping to certain rules because you find them useful and because you like the results, or because your audience likes the results, is what many artists do. Such artists can be creative within the rules they have accepted.

If the situation changes, regarding the economy, or the artist's own satisfaction with the rules, which he might begin to find restrictive or boring or purposeless, then the creative person will change the rules. The less creative person will tend to cling on to the old rules.

Perhaps the Impressionistic and Symbolic painters, and Picasso in particular, are good examples here. As I understand, Picasso's early works were representational and photorealistic. The realisation that photography could do the job much more efficiently was a motivation for him to change his style in a creative manner.

It's interesting to speculate, if the camera with recording capabilities had not evolved, would Picasso have continued to paint in the representational style?

The point is, it was working in v8. So it's not that they don't support it, it's that they blocked it.
However yes it is their product and their right to do so and yes Pentax should buy into a proper solution.

I dont know how many paying Canon or Nikon customer they have, and how many paying Pentax users they would have. And I don't even think this is part of their calculation.

As far as I know v8 didn't support Pentax645Z, it wasn't 'working' then and it isn't 'working' now.
However you could get it to work with "Capture One Fix" and if I'm not mistaken it's still possible. But there was never a native solution.

Larry - Well said.

Pete - It's a wonderful image and demonstrates that one can handle low light quite well within the limitations of M4/3.

adapters, hubs, powered....does not really sound like a nice location solution.
my retina 1st gen with h4d-40 made a lot of problems and hasselblad didn't come up with the suggestion to use powered hubs back then. I blame the apple adapter, however the Hasselblad system should be robust enough to recover from this without having to reset the whole system.

If your windows laptop works, keep it for the location setup and save yourselves some headaches.

As some of you may know, PhaseONE choose to block the Pentax MF cameras in version 9. While it used to be working in v8.
Fair enough, it's their software.

Here what was posted by PhaseOne on their forum:

We have always been clear in this regard, since the very first Capture One software.

We do support a vast range of small and micro format cameras.
With medium format we only support our own "Team Phase One" * camera solutions.

We have never misled anyone in this regard.
We have never changed or revised this policy.
Nor should anyone expect it to change.

If you want to use Capture One in your medium format solution, then purchase a Phase One or Mamiya-Leaf solution.

This thread ends here.
Any new thread with the same topic will simply be deleted.

* "Team Phase One" includes: Phase One, Leaf and Mamiya.
Kind Regards
Ulf Liljegren

Does Silkypix support Phase One files? Does Canon DPP support Nikon files? Etc etc

For 12 years C1 has supported nearly all small format cameras and their own line of medium format cameras. It does not represent "fear" of Pentax and more than it represented "fear" of the Mamiya ZD or any other medium format system that has come and gone while C1 had been around.

Also, what are you talking about regarding reliability?? Phase One is widely acknowledged to be the most robust and reliable back made. Call any major rental house in the world and ask them which backs they prefer for issue free tethering; it will be P1 every time. Maybe you are feferring to the fact that on their public support forum there are support issues posted? This is true of literally any product. Very frustrating especially when you get to see how infrequently the issue complained of on the forum was actually the hardware rather than user error or something like a bad USB cable.
