I'm expecting delivery of my new H3D-39 with the 28, 50-110, 150, and 1.7 mutar in the next couple of days. I'm looking for any information I can get from users. Anything to watch out for? I've used flexcolor with my Imacon 848 for the last few years.
I'd welcome insight from anyone who has gone before me down this road.
I have my H3D39 for a few months and have good experience with HCD28m, I think it is quite sharp, and compact, compare to other HC lenses. I think the system is fast and responsive, but I have problem develop much love affair with the Flexcolor as well as how the H camera was designed and engineered - compare against Contax 645 that I also use with P45, the Contax is a superior camera to me, except its autofocus is not as fast but that does not bother me much.
The overall sharpness and the correction from the system is nice, I hope Hasselblad improve the software more. Besides 2HCD 28mm, I also got 35, 80, 50-110, 100 and 150, all of them are quite good, I did not use long enough to experience lens issue, but H3D39 once tethered to a computer of more recent upgrade of software, it won't work with other computer of older software unless you choose to downgrade the camera?? This is something they need to look at to fix it. I think for whatever version of software, one should always be able to shoot, and when it happened, the camera freezed, you will need to remove the Firewire line and remove the battery to wake up the camera again. But other than the software issue and the logic behind the system, I found shooting CF card with H3D39 a strong system. What I do exepct, is in stead of rely on camera power, H system can design something much smaller and lighter and use Firewire port to supply the power to the back and give the back more portable function when use with platform with movement.
