Quote from: Graham Welland on January 29, 2017, 09:36:56 pmJoe,A couple of points regarding accuracy:Alpa - tilt adapters are required, shift is built in to the STC and Max (and SWA). You had shift ...Bellows - I was very surprised to read that Cambo don't have a bellows solution. Extremely surprised in fact because I use the Cambo Actus DB with my IQ3100 and there are a couple of variants available for just 35mm (Actus) and also as a rail camera (Actus XL).If you want the most cost effective solution with all movements, and you have a back or body with live view, I would challenge you to beat the Cambo Actus. The best part is that all lenses can be bought without mounts and fitted to lens boards. I have tilt, swing, rise & fall and rear shift with the Actus DB.

Quote from: JoeKitchen on January 29, 2017, 09:56:48 pmI was using a P45+ up until about two months ago, then switched to the IQ260. I don't think any of the 80 or 100 MP backs work well with any of the tech camera lenses, especially the 100 MP ones. Too much lens cast IMO. I am hoping the technology in the current Sony AII will make its way into the full frame MF (with the back illuminated pixels). Only then would I consider anything higher in resolution.
Quote from: Lust4Life on January 29, 2017, 10:04:35 pmThe P45+! That was one of my favorite backs that I used on a 500cm Hasselblad decades ago with T* lenses and the waste level viewfinder! One of my all time favorite images was taken with it. Two rows of 5 across, f stopped of 3 deep each. But I got the image I wanted!! It's Glen at High Shoals, GA on my web site under Panorama tab.I could easily go with a P45+ again for the start of this project, but would probably be seduced by the 60MP if I let cost of entry not bother me. We will see.
Quote from: Graham Welland on January 29, 2017, 10:48:39 pmAgreed, I have no skin in this game myself actually - just trying to keep things honest.I have owned and used Alpa Max, TC and STC cameras with all the associated hardware for tilts. I have also used the arca & Cambo WRS over the years. I would agree that the arca has the benefit of all movements built into a single body without having to add tilt lenses or adapters etc. Without LV the focus is somewhat different due to the need for focus tables vs distance markings and back calibrations but at this level you're hopefully going to know what you are doing anyways ...
Quote from: Lust4Life on January 29, 2017, 05:09:24 pmI am finally going to set myself up as an photographer of architecture, both commercial and high end residential/real estate, interior and exterior. My passion for Landscape work is never going to assist me in paying the bills.......I seek to compete with the existing photographers currently in my market area (Raleigh Triangle, NC)...I'll listen to all advice.Thanks in advance to all that help point me in the new direction.
Quote from: aaronleitz on January 30, 2017, 12:32:10 amThere is no architectural project on this planet that can't be photographed absolutely beautifully with a Canon DSLR and its basic complement of lenses. And a tech camera is probably the worst system to use for real estate photography.
