I test the way I shoot so there's no graphs or brick walls. I shoot landscape, nature and wildlife (in that order) so when I get a new piece of equipment I run everything through in that order. My question(s) are simple; will it work for me. How much (if any) will I need to change my workflow, both in capture and processing. And will it make me money.
I've been shooting with a Phase One digital back for several years and have gotten quite comfortable in a workflow that, well works for me. This was my first opportunity to try a Leaf digital back and was very pleased. I found working it was intuitive and easy. Instead of a menu that scrolls up and down like my IQ180 this one swipes much like reading a book. While I personally don't care much for CMOS and cropped sensors I really like this one; I think it has more to do with it being Wide Spectrum. I also found tethering to my Surface Pro 3 as easy as with my IQ180. The ability of live view is what sets this apart. IR filters have a tenacity to shift focus ever so slightly. The ability to change into a live view mode, double tap the screen and check focus all within seconds made using this digital back a pure joy. The screen was usable in bright noon day as well as inside a dark building.
This is just part one, so stay tuned for more.
