Thats D700? Some sweet colors you have..


Thanks!

Yes, the D700 at base iso. As I said earlier in this thread somewhere, lately I've been really hooked on the colours produced by [what I assume] is the zeiss lenses (o/c in combination with an appropriate post processing from raw). Having only two other non zeiss lenses (Nikkor 2.8/180 and 2.8/24-70) I can not say for certain if this is specific to Zeiss or some placebo effect, but I'm happy about the performance non the less.

Now I'm shooting mainly with D3x and try to keep it at base iso as well, almost purely for the colours.

this is with the medium format hasselblad lens 2.8/80 (non T* coated) on d3x

I tend to agree, first and foremost in most cases (thankfully) is the photog, but I remember using the older nikkor ai and ais lenses. Although sharp, they had far from the saturated colours and contrast the newer lenses have. The difference seem to be coating mainly.

So actually it's not the coating as the most colorful lens I have is the non T* coated medium format 2.8/80

Coatings can shift colors, T* does have that signature shift to magenta/blue, at least that old one on C/Y. Newer has sorta "polarizer" like colors (when boosted via saturation).

In case of that Hassy lens, its probably due good glass itself. Tho some coating is most likely there too.

Sure its about photographer I dont deny that (even tho its not obvious Im taking some photos too sometimes ). I was just curious what made those colors look like this. Mostly D700 colors look all the same, just different PP tweaks, but base is same. These two look a lot different.. Plus it has really impressive amount of details. I guess you had great light too.

Dont take it as denial of skill, I never do that.

Really like those BW interpretations of Röros diploneis. It's a picturesque place for sure but you add something to the scene.

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

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.
