- User configurable, save-able, and exportable(!) layout presets. Can be shared amongst peers or used to streamline the interface.
- 'Triggers'. ie Connect a CF card and the interface will switch to any of your layouts (For example, Import tools etc etc). Or connect a camera and have the interface switch ot your own predefined layout and setup an adjustment - ready to go
- Floatable tool Palettes
- Which includes the Navigator tool, can be resized and used as a Loupe.
- Tethered capture interrupt - ie Shoot tethered and work with images simultaneously
More to come - we are still at our Partner Meeting!
hi david, so does the focus off center, then recompose actually makes up for the differences in the focus plane? how does it do that?
still, when shooting on tripod, doing a difficult composite for example, you really cant be turning the camera every few shots. even thought the canons multipoint focus points don't quite go wide enough for all shots, most of the time there is a focus point exactly where you need it. so you lock down, and shoot all day in one direction. and even if you have a subject away from a focus point, its really extremely quick to click into live view at 10x and check that way, then take a shot - almost instantly from live view.
i dont have a hassy back, just a aptus on a h1, and i really love my camera. but to be honest, the last dozen shoots ive really wanted to use medium format, but on the day its just been too tough, and ive just finished the shoot with the canon.
its been like ive needed to take my hassy kit to shoots so the clients take me seriously, but when i shoot some shots with the canon and they see that file popping up on a 30" screen, they are completely happy with the canon. if they need larger file sizes, a can shoot a top plate, left and right in less time than my aptus can take a single shot, then i have a monster file, far in excess of 60mp.
im not trying to hassy bash, i just really want some big improvements so i get excited about having medium format again. more megapixels and a slight af adjustment isn't really cutting it.
if its really that hard to add more higher tech, usefull improvements to the H, at least add a vertical grip and a better color scheme (ie, black).
