Hi Brad
A few questions for the Hasselblad?

Quote
1) This back is shipping when?
I expect the CV39 to ship in August 2009.

Quote
2) I noticed there is no DAC available for any of the FE series lenses.  I assume this was a business decision based on the numbers of these lenses out there, and not a technical limitation?  If I did take the plunge a number of my lenses would be FE, and I'd like to know if there's even a chance that they could one day benefit from DAC.
Hasselblad offered the most popular or most commonly used lenses in the V line. I think there is excellent coverage from 40mm to 350mm. Granted the 250 and 350mm are SA and are unique in their own right. The quantities of F/FE lenses sold are far fewer then those the V system.
It does take a great deal of time for our optical specialist to make these calculations and this is one reason why we have not mapped al optics that were manufactured many decades ago. I will inquire regarding possible future additions.

Quote
3) Is the back available in black trim?
No

Quote
4) I assume for portrait orientation 4:3 shots, the back must be removed, rotated 90 degrees and reattached?
The CFV has one orientation: landscape. If you wish to compose in portrait/vertical position then i suggest utilizing an HC 3, HC 4, RM 2 viewfinder. Of course you can use a waistlevel finder or a 45 degree prism but this may be a little difficult to work with.

Quote
5) Is lens information included in the CFV metadata? (CFE/FE lenses of course)
No

Quote
6) What happens with DAC when a 1.4x TC is used?
Yes, you can use DAC but the 1.4x tele-converter has not been included as a selectable option and is therefore not included in the lens calculations.

Quote
7) Shooting in crop mode is simply a metadata setting that Phocus respects?  ie. If I have the camera set to shoot square, and change my mind in post, can I still "reveal" the full 4:3 shot?
Yes and Yes

Quote
8) What is the LiveView story for the CFV39?
I imagine that Live Video will be available as it is with the CFVII and CFII backs.

Quote
9) Who should I contact to arrange for a test drive?  (I am based in Seattle, WA).
You can contacts Glazer's in Seattle, they are an autorized Hasselblad dealer or follow this link for Hasselblad regional manager.

Thank you for the reply, Paul.  You even managed to indirectly answer a question I had not even asked!  Namely the PM-90 viewfinder is incompatible with the CFV backs?  (If so, as an fyi, the hasselblad web page on the PM90 mentions incompatibility with the 70mm and Polaroid backs but makes no mention of the CFV.)

Thanks again for the Paul.  I'll give this new option some serious consideration.

Best regards,
Brad

Hi Brad

The PM-90 and PME90 viewfinders are incompatible with the CFV back.
These viewfinders where designed at a time when A12/16/24/32 film magazines were in common use on our 200, 500 and 900 series cameras.

"fyi, the hasselblad web page on the PM90 mentions incompatibility with the 70mm and Polaroid backs but makes no mention of the CFV."
Thank you for this observation, i will pass this onto our webmaster.

Which 90 finders will work with the 203FE and the CFV?  I've found that in addition to the PM/PME-90, the RM-2. HC3/70, HC-3 and HC-2 won't fit either...   Is this correct?

(I think I saw somewhere that NASA had some HC3/70's modified to fit the 203FE -- or maybe they're available in a 203FE-compatible mount).  Any idea where to find one of these?  I'd prefer the RM-2 followed by the HC3/70 if either can be made to work.

Thanks, Paul, or anyone who has some ideas on this,
-Brad

May be you folks already know this, but I got this e-mail today......

The new CFV-39 digital back offers an impressive 39mp (111mb) CCD image sensor made by Kodak.  Offering larger files, wider dynamic range and millions of more color shades than any 35mm digital systems.  Hasselblad is offering the CFV-39 for only $13,995. This price is a little bit more than a 35mm digital system but $10,000 less expensive than Phase One's equivalent digital back, the P45+.
Hasselblad has been able to bring the supererior high quality of the 39mp sensor to a price-point that is more affordable to those who may be considering a 35mm digital system.  This is great news for shooters who love their older Hasselblad cameras and Zeiss lenses but want the best digital at a reasonable price.

Why will the PM-90 not fit? Is a mechanical reason? If so, can it be modified to fit?

********
Could you explain why?  I have a 45 but not a 90.  The size of the backs and "button" latch of the CFV and A12 appear to be the same profile.  Pictures of the 90 in Nordin's book don't help me either.

I think it's a size issue. As you can see the viewfinder needs to curve over the back.   The CVF back is simply to big for the viewfinder. The dimensions of the CVF looks closer to a 70mm back than a 120.

Even if it did fit, it looks like the PM/PM-E 90 might block the top of the CFV screen as well.

Thanks..the picture of the PME-90 in the Nordin book looks like the under surface is flat, unlike the PM-90 picture.  It looks to be a PITA with an A12 and PM90 with removing the magazine. I guess it limits the film reload to an attached magazine. I have a PME-45 and that combined with a 503 CWD + Winder is very ergonomic in "portrait" mode.  I wish that I could justify adding the CFV39 to the "kit".

Seeing the Euro 10000 price for the CFV-39 what would be a good deal for a CFV II? I see one on eBay for Euro 6000 brand new with 2 year warranty. Is this a good deal or better wait and pay 4000 more for the 39? Any advice welcome.

I had a good look at my PM90 finder. The size of the chrome plate that slides into the camera body is 65 X 69 mm. This plate is screwed into the base of the PM90. This plate could easily be rotated 45 degrees (need a few new screw holes drilled in it). Unfortunately, the base (plastic) of the PM90 is 65 X 67 mm so 2 mm would have to be shaved off one side and then the unit would fit sideways.

In other words, if the PM90 could be fitted sideways then we could tilt the body (or for tripod use get a bracket) and use the CFV-39 in portrait mode. Then, 1.1 lens factor and the full resolution.

Anyone here who has some engineering know-how who could add his opinion? Any thoughts?

Paul:  How well will the digital correction for 1985 vintage CF 50, 80 150 and CF180 (circa whenever it was first released)  work ?

I understood that these lenses were optically the same as more current ones (with the exception of 50mm nonFLE/FLE)
