Dark Frame Be Gone!

TechTip-XFTimeLapseTool

In order to maximize image quality and minimize noise on all Phase One digital captures, an additional dark frame of the same shutter speed duration is captured immediately after the image has been captured to record the noise print from that time of shooting and the math from that temporary image will later be subtracted from the original exposure when you view the image in Capture One.  When the dark frame subtraction (DFS) … Read More →

Copal Shutter Care & Alternatives

CopalShutterCare

Since the dawn of Photography, we have made use of some sort of shutter that was part of, or that complimented the optics in the cameras early photographers used to image scenes onto the recording media of the time.  The evolution of chemicals, substrates and processing methods evolved separately from the mechanical designs of what started with the camera obscura. Electro-mechanical camera systems have for decades risen over the purely mechanical … Read More →

Lens Alternatives for Technical Camera Use

Buy A B1 Location Kit and Get A Free Air Remote!-7

The great majority of my favorite landscape images have been taken at the wider end of the spectrum of focal lengths.  Since moving to a technical camera a few years ago, my wide-angle lens of choice is the Rodenstock 32HR.  It provides a field of view of roughly what a 21mm lens would provide using a 35mm format.  If I need to create an even wider view, then I will … Read More →

BLOG_XF-AutoISO

While some prefer to shoot full manual all the time, the automated and automatic processes available on the XF provide safety nets that manual operation doesn’t provide. Auto ISO is the simple idea that the camera will sacrifice the noise-free realm of low ISO for higher ISOs if that change becomes necessary to make the image. When light is falling and extending the length of capture time isn’t practical, raising … Read More →
