Thanks for the response.
Do you have any experience with this camera?
Sure seems like it WOULD meet my needs  -  am I missing something, a negative I am not considering?

And this was the way out...

Hi All,

I am selling my cherished NIKON D3X body as I no longer use it.

This was the last true professional body that Nikon made, it has been lightly used and comes with a D3X strap, body cap, charger and 2 batteries.

The specs are: 24.5 megapixel Full Frame CMOS sensor

It has low actuations and is in pristine condition.

I am asking $US 2300.00 for everything

LR does not work as well on the LCC process at least in my experience. So all tech camera shots have always been C1 at least for the start. Since I moved back to the XF not an issue anymore.

The question of whether battery systems will ever have the energy density of a tank of gasoline is interesting enough, but even if it never happens that doesn't mean electric cars won't be useful. Depending on how things turn out, we might lose the ability to drive from New York to Florida in a relatively inexpensive and convenient way, but there was never any guarantee that we could do that forever. When/if there comes a time when the price of a litre of gasoline is $10, say, lots of people will get rid of their cars, since there won't be much point owning something you can't afford to use. But we'll still need to buy groceries and go to the dentist and we've designed our cities (in North America anyway) so that those things are never within easy walking distance. At that point, a limited-range and limited-speed e-car will seem like a godsend and not an substandard substitute, even if you only charge it up once a month. In the long run, we will probably have to change the way we live, and no one ever likes that.

Oh let's not constrain ourselves to a bleak future.  Let's have faith in the ability of man to overcome technological hurdles.  After the governments get tired of subsidizing electric car usage we'll go on using more efficient gasoline engine based designs (such as the hybrid concept with it's small battery regenerative model) for as long as fossil fuels are relatively plentiful.  What happens after that depends on what we use for the large scale production of power.  If nuclear power becomes the model then it would seem that a hydrogen based combustion engine would be preferable both because of the highly exothermic nature of that combustion process and the clean emissions (water).  The engineering challenges involve making hydrogen fuel safe.  But I have faith in the wonders of modern engineering.  After all if we can have self driving cars then low risk hydrogen engines should be easy.

The Sony multi-hinge design does look like it will work with an L bracket.  I wish the manufactures would integrate swiss-arca grooves into the body design, obviating the need for L brackets.

This is the Greyhound station in Clarksdale, Mississippi a small, economically depressed town in the heart of the delta. It is often considered the birth place of the blues. I lived there as a child.

I have always had a problem with the dark frame subtraction.  I actually corresponded with Julieanne Kost at Adobe and I was told by her that it could not be done properly in LR.  She was told by their engineers that Phase One would not share their algorithm with them.  At least this is the story they told me - who knows the truth!

Good capture for a sunny day.

But no herons or egrets.  :(

I think the whole issue is a bit overblown. Our eyes adapt to the white point almost completely, unless the color is well off the illuminant locus. So any slight tint in eye-wear will become irrelevant after a short time.

Overblown? On LuLa? Are you kidding? This is the Color Management forum!  8) You, know, where we discuss wearing the proper color clothing while we work in post. Where we discuss, endlessly, the benefits of this or that level of ambient lighting. Where we discuss viewing prints under tightly controlled color temperatures. Where we discuss the fact that most monitors in use are simply unsatisfactory for color management. :D

Seriously though, I'm not sure this is overblown at all. The fact that our own eyes adapt does not seem relevant when it comes to producing an end product that will be viewed by others. If we are the only ones who view our own work, then yes, it is irrelevant. Otherwise, it seems to me, the color shift produced by glasses is as relevant as any other step in the color management chain. Again, for me, glasses on: cool, faint blue hue from the monitor. Glasses off: warmer almost greenish hue. It is a big difference.
