It's due to the Irish Whiskey, no doubt.

Nicolas, congratulations, and do try to keep the camera dry ...

Nope, rather the herbal phenomenon form, LOL!

It would have been fun if the salmon had been smoked with your world famous medecinal/herbal receipe! LoL!

Nicolas, would you mind to describe the most awkard shot you had to take so far? - I imagine you have some funny stories to tell in that respect! - Talk about difficulties to overcome when it comes to the final shooting!

... I can not begin to imagine! ... <smile>

I'm here in Yorkshire as well you know but I'll be heading north quite soon....... I suffer withdrawal symptoms if I'm away too long, must look out for this wonderful brew.

Congratulations Nic so nice to hear good news, well deserved!

Ralp,

What are you shooting with now? Amazing that Nicolas is so moved and this is, I assure you a very genuine experience. It's exciting to see someone at a particular stage in their work make a step up. Sometime tools do open up capabilities. Leonardo shoots with the Phase one back on a just a used Mamiya and this risky investment was made when he had no cash, none, zero! Still it was a good move as it allowed him to move into the fine art photography market in a big way.

Nicolas has posted architectural images too and they are in a new thread here from his Hy6 shoot of a Frank Gehry masterpiece in Basques, Spain. Worth a visit!

Hi Asher,

Thanks for pointing me to the great shots of Nicolas.

I'm still shooting with the 1Ds2, for a number of reasons. I've been very troubled with the 50/1.2, which draws just beautifully, but which has serious focusing issues up close and can be erratic when stopped down. Since this is the only lens with which I have encountered these problems, there is apparently little that CPS can do, although when I have the time I'll drop it off.

Ralph,

I thought this was partly the 5D! I turn the camera off and back on and retry. One of those annoying things. still that's the one lens I use 99% of the time! I have increased my 4-letter word frequency!

Hello Asher

I have read this article and it seems that this Sinar system is wonderful. A big surprise for me was the quality of the image taken with the 1Ds III .. this looks like a very big print and as the article says shows the quality of the Mark III .. any views on this

Hi Noel
Can you be more explicite please? What article are you referring and which 1DsIII image are you talking?

Sorry to ask, but all this is quite "old" stuff nearly 3 months! ;-)

So I'll be able to answer you…

Welcome to OPF by the way…

Hello Asher

sorry to bother you with this and I realise the articles are a few months old. I read 1 article where you were sitting with Mr Claris and in the article you asked the Printer to stand beside a picture of a Yacht .. and you remarked on the quality of this huge print .. taken with 1Ds III. Thank you for the welcome and taking the time to anser me. I am interested in this 1Ds III quality issue because I am thinking about moving from 645 to DSLR. Thanks again.

Hi Noel

here is Nicolas, not Asher!

In Asher's article, he refers to 1DsMkII (and not III)... (re quality of print)

I do have now, beside the Sinar HY6 a 1DsMkII…
Of course the III is better than the II but it is a complete different machine than the Sinar…

I don't see any issue with the 1DsIII (neither the II !)
But I don't think one may compare DSLR and MF cameras… they are simply not achieving the same goals… a bit like a Ferrari and a Rolls Royce.

Much better and more fun to have both! ;-)

Dear Nicolas

First of all I loved your photographs .. really brilliant. I accept what you say about the MF and the DSLR - I have used Contax 645 for a number of years and I am very reluctant to give it up. WIth Velvia and the proper scanning it is fantastic camera. But time and technology moves on .. and I have used an EOS D5 in Asia for 3 weeks and I am impressed with the results. However I have developed a sort of a market for very big images and I want to be certain that if I move to the 1Ds III that the quality will be as good as the MF/Velvia combination. So thank you very kindly for taking the time to answer me and be careful when hanging out of helicopters !!! Bon Soiree
