Hey JW: If memory serves me correctly you spent some time with the Hasselblad folks in the recent past. How was that experience? I had an opportunity to play with a friends H4D-40 yesterday and feel in love. I'm already planning a series of bank heists to fund the switch from Canon

While they don't have the long glass like Canon, for everything else they would be a hoot. This guy uses their HC 3.5/35 mm lens with the HTS 1.5 tilt/shift adapter - a very slick setup for architectural work. I wondered what your impressions were?


Hi Jeff,

I love Blads and have captured over a million images on them. I have been in discussions with them for about a year. My concern is viability and reliability. There's some pretty stout evidence that their sensors are good for 100,000 exposures at best, and after warranty service is, as you might imagine, really steep. I had at least two back up duplicates for every piece of Blad equipment,. Not because Blad was unreliable, but if you're shooting professionally, you need the redundancy. Um, at $49K for a body/back/lens, when I ran the numbers a reasonable system was going to be close to 200K. The imagery is incredible, but, try as I might, I just don't see how you can make those numbers work. I'll keep you posted.

On the Mac v PC subject, Rodolfo has a very reasoned opinion. Never thought I'd be on this side of the fence, but I hope I never have to touch a windows machine again....ever. Last night I had a presentation to give to a few hundred folks. The venue didn't speak Apple, as a result the visuals were considerable less interesting than they could have been. On top of that the Windows tech guy stumbled all over himself trying to get the PC to do anything. I realize that this is only one scenario, but all my days with Windows came rushing back to me. When I got in my car to head home I gave amy MBP a pat of appreciation for what it doesn't put me through.

Yes, occasionally they do hiccup, but I'm trying to remember if my PC manufacturers looked over the counter at me and said, "We're sorry, we don't want you to have any additional frustration so here's a latest and greatest unit to replace your 7 month old computer". That alone goes a long way in my book, but the fact that 99% of the time they work flawlessly and they're fun, is pretty cool too.

Rich, that is a very, very, nice Tonka. Speaking of which one of the unforeseen aspects of our relocation is that Belford is on one of the low level routes into and out of area 20T and Otterburn ranges!
Traffic is light two or three movements most weekdays since Christmas. Mostly Tonka, some Hawk and Tucano. No Tiffy as yet.
Question any ideas on a reasonable price scanning receiver so I can get some warning of incoming?

Spent the day at Scott Kelby's Light It Shoot It Retouch it show. Even though it was model shots, some of the Lightroom and Photoshop techniques might be adapted for big nasty oily greasy rusty dusty things liken we shoot! Lots to think about though - some of the masking stuff was mind blowing -and all done inside photoshop too! No masking software.

Jon - forgot to ask earlier: do they give you a workbook to take with you (and to take *notes* in)? Do you need to bring anything with you other than a pen or pencil (or iPad) to take *notes* with? Just trying to get ready for my stint in the class Tuesday.

I'm told that Kelby is headed my way for the same seminar. I'm more serious about attending after your comments than I was before - thanks.

That looks like an ex- Hawkins & Powers Privateer. I used to stop at H&P's main facility at the airfield outside Greybull, Wyoming, and wander around the open-air boneyard among the mounds of discarded jugs from old radials, stacks of junked wings, R-3350's on their stands, and pickled R-4360's still in their shipping cans. They always had some interesting hybrid aircraft on the flight line: for instance, old Flying Boxcars with a single turbojet installed upside down on a pylon behind the cockpit.

About ten years ago I sat out on our back deck and watched as another of H&P's Privateers, loaded with fire retardant, passed low over my house in Colorado on what turned out to be its final mission: ten minutes later its main spar failed on a drop run in the foothills a few miles behind my house and two good men were lost with the airplane. It was the company's death knell: H&P did not survive the loss of two aircraft in separate accidents that fire season.

I'll root around for some photos, tomorrow.
