need help deciding
« on: November 27, 2005, 06:12:09 PM »

I have read many of the reviews at luminous landscape and although I am going to demo several cameras next month I wanted to get opinions. I am a product photographer who shoots primarily in studio ( i know most people here shoot on location) . I have been renting digital backs for some time now and have used quite a few of them.
I have been considering purchasing either a h20 back or a h25 back for a while. The P backs don't interest me much because I have no interest in shooting untethered.
My dillema is should I save money and purchase the Canon 1 MarkII with a Cambo 35 and schneider lenses, or should I purchase an H25 and Cambo camera and schneider lenses. I will tell you the savings is very tempting and some reviews say it is indistinguishable.
Any thoughts are appreciated.

What do your clients demand in terms of filesize etc at the moment.??

I do both location and studio work.
I do most of my work on a Canon Eos 1Ds  ( soon to be replaced by a Ds mark II or the eventually new Canon hopefully coming next year)

But when I shoot cars (Big Swedish brand) in the studio I rent a Hasselblad H1 and aP25 back
They would never accept a Canon file (they done tests on the Ds mark II and don't accept it)

So even though the  Eos1Ds mark II  comes pretty close to the P25 sometimes (if you use capture sharpening and all that in your work flow) in some tests.

There is a big chance that some clients will not accept a file from a Canon.

And with all these new backs coming out,there might be a good deal on a h25 in the near future.

So in my opinion (if you can afford it) go for the h25 .
