Nice to see you come up for some air Jim.
FWIW I'm under the impression that the new P1 back is all about the characteristics of a CMOS sensor. So it's about Live View, focus peeking, and lower heat induced noise in long time exposures. I think the folks at P1 have sussed that all the CMOS stuff is nice but they need to convince you about the system as a whole. I say go for it – but then spending other folks hard earned is one of my lesser known talents.
Oh, do Kenyon have a model that will...Show more →
Hi Nick, thanks! Haven't held the Phase One yet, but I imagine the Kenyon 4x4 would probably be fine. When I take it up, I'm going to give it the acid test and just handhold it. I expect it to have about the same bulkiness quotient as my old Blads, with some additional weight due to the electronics. In air to air work, bulk is actually one's friend, that's why I put the battery grip on my D800's before they leave the store.
We'll see how this plays out. I'm thinking it will go one of two ways, I'll be so blown away that it will be a case of how fast I can put together a system, or, it won't wow me much at all and I'll walk away and not look back. They have prepared me for the fact that the autofocus isn't what I'm used to in my 1DX bodies, but then I have no intention of shooting fast moving subjects from a stationary post with that system, and most of my air to air work is manual focus anyway.
