Just curious, but what kind of adapter would one have to use to mount a Hasselblad (Carl Zeiss) lens to a Nikon DLSR?

To open the leaf shutter you would have to cock the lens. How could you do this on a Nikon D3x?

IIRC there is a little slot on the back of the lens that you can turn with a screwdriver. You only need to do this once.

this is no biggie, there's a pin on the lens used to stop down, but as the lens is simple gorgeous wide open there's seldom any need.

you turn to decided aperture, focus, then stop down using pin
metering is down backward

Hm, a screwdriver was never involved.

I've got one of those tools that will cock the lens but how do you get the lens to mount to the body?

An adapter. Just search ebay for instance "hasselblad to nikon adapter". No biggie and great fun.

You can buy a special-purpose tool, but there is no point, as long as you have some mechanical skill. You just have to turn the little slotted circle until the shutter is cocked (when the slot and the red dot line up), about 1 turn or so. I just confirmed on my 80/2.8 CF that if the lens shutter gets triggered, it can be cocked easily with a flat-head screwdriver.

Matynas - So great to see you back. Beautiful shots. Love the BW treatment on these. Shots #1,#2 gives me great sense of space of this tightly woven town.

Jako - The boat shot abstract is very nice.

Rodluvan -I enjoy your color endeavor. Agree with wise guy, that shot is my fav too.

Lately I am busy with learning more about HDR-processing. With the correct software it is not difficult to do, but getting a realistic look is not always that easy. Here some examples with the ZF.2 15/2.8 (unfortunately still on a crop-body , so it actually is a 22.5 mm lens). In near future a D800E is planned.

Comments, tips and tricks are welcome.

The first three look great, very natural, with just a touch too much saturation. The last two have a little of that HDR look to them, a certain soft grittiness. I think just allowing the contrast to go a little higher and holding back the saturation a tiny bit would fix all of these, if 100% natural-looking is what you are after, but they already look really nice.

Thanks Carsten. I will give it a try.

I agree with Carsten Wiseguy. The first one looks the most natural to me.
