Q: has anyone bought the leash and cuff quick connect straps wondering how they work in real life

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

i bought this camera in excellent condition from a local guy for 20 thousand Pakistani Rupees, roughly equal to US $250.

the camera is heavy, cumbersome and all-manual. which basically means you have to do a lot of prep before actually taking a shot. they say its results are superb and out of this world, but i have yet to find that out...

am not considering a digital back for it, particularly because this will be my 'old school' camera :) i use my digital camera's spot meter to calculate the f/stop and the shutter :) but i am planning to get a viewfinder for it that comes with a built-in light meter, making things easier :)

Lighting: i wanted to give the camera a more 'brochure-like' look :) which is why i chose to employ both my flash units in remote mode :)

the flash to the left, the SB900, was fired at full power while the right-side flash, the SB600, was fired at lower power, enough to illuminate the camera's rear.

i knew two flashes would not only look good but would also give the photo more depth, more 3 Dimensionality. you be the judge of that.

my only complain is that i did not get the camera's lens properly lit. lots of room for improvement.

interestingly, it was shot with my standard 50mm prime lens, which did a decent job. now i only wonder just how good the 45mm tilt-shift lens will be for such shots.

did some levels adjustments, cropped in 6x7in format and presenting it here for your review :)

thanks for reading and viewing :)

    Very nice, loved the complete sharp subject (obviously the great camera ;) ) n BG really works very good for mood here. how about trying 3-point lighting setup? i'd helped to expose the front portion of lens properly which went dark from a very side due to side light or may be placed a reflector (IMO only)

    Nice sharp image, I love this tool excellent, but currently using a viewsonic hdmi 1080 monitor and it is showing a little bit darkness on lens area. checkit.
