There is a small story behind this one. I tried to shoot this fern with focus blending before and failed. A month later I was back with my T&S gear and it was still there…Re: Close up and tiltReply #2 on: October 11, 2020 at 2:47 am
This was shot in my P45+ days on the Hasselblad Flexbody.Re: IQ3-100 TrichromaticReply #3 on: October 7, 2020 at 4:00 am
It looks like I finally saw the light and joined the P1 wagon with a IQ3-100 Trichromatic on XF with a couple of Blue Ring lenses (35, 80, 120 and 150).
So far so good, the colors are really lovely.
Now that you have been trough three different 100 MP systems, it would be nice if you could share some of the experience.
Do you consider using the Trichromatic on a technical camera?

I was shooting some flowers today. Usually I focus on just one flower or a group of a few flowers. But this time I wanted to show a lot of flowers and have all of them in reasonable focus.
This was shot on my mirrorless full frame camera with a Contax 35-135/3.4-4.5 Sonnar zoom. The lens was connected to the camera with a HCam Master TS II adapter that allows both tilt and shift.
In this case, tilt was used. Tilting the lens allows for tilting the focal plane, a technique known as ‘The Scheimpflug Principle’. The Scheimpflug Principle is not a panacea for extending the focal plane, as everything above and below that focal plane will be out of focus.
Tilt and shift lenses have been with us for a long time. But mirrorless cameras allow for designs with very short mount to sensor distance, allowing to use T&S techniques with a lot of old lenses.
I can use my Canon EF-mount lenses on the HCam Master TS, but the Canon lenses don’t have manual aperture control. That is the reason I have a couple of Contax RTS era Zeiss zooms for Scheimpflug. The lenses won’t allow for any significant shift, but will work fine for tilts.
