Large 16bit files

Unread post by snickgrr » 06.01.2008 20:55

I'm still playing around with the program and so decided to see how it handles my big files. The back I shoot with produces approx 192Mb 16bit files.
This is a stack of 13 and after chugging away on the G5 for about 7 minutes it produced a very nicely rendered file. Didn't run any dust maps although I can see a few dust trails. No halos. Also decided to see if I could get the same image using the swings and tilts on the camera but at f45 couldn't approach the depth of field from the stacked file. Also of course it wasn't really sharp anyway.
Nothing done to it but a bit of black and white work in photoshop and a tiny bit of smart sharpen.

The last one is really nice! What kind of camera are you using?

I agree, I like that second one, but the first does show how the magnification performs. Umm what are we looking at...and like he asked, what rail setup are you using?

on second thought... at 192MB, likely a scanback that is 100% crop

The first one is a 100% crop. I shot that with a Leaf A75 medium format digital back on a Fuji Gx 680lll. I usually have this on an old Horseman Large Format rail that will allow me to move it in and out.

Couple pictures of it here on this thread...scroll down the page a bit
