Shooting landscape with a Cambo WRS1000 and Phase One P45+

Cambo WRS1000 Phase One P45+ 72mm f/8 1/250 ISO 50

If you've been following this blog for any length of time you'll remember my main landscape camera is the wonderful Cambo WRS1000 coupled with a great Phase One P45+ digital back.  I have a trio of great lens, all Schneider, 35mm, 72, and 120mm.  While I've had this setup for several years I just recently added a viewfinder that I'm finding very useful.

This has been my only landscape gear until early this year when I added the Leica M9.  I've written at great length lately about the great if not stunning image quality of the M9 and Leica lenses.  Frankly I've been blow away at what I've been getting with this camera.

In writing so much about the M9 I feel I've neglected in writing about or sharing the images I've been fortunate in capturing with the Cambo WRS/P45+.

We've been in the Jackson Hole area since October 4th and shooting almost everyday.  My main landscape camera remains the Cambo/P45+ and while here shooting landscape and nature I wanted to see just what I might be able to do with the Cambo.   

I've been pleased with the various images I've been able to capture from as close as 6' for the trees to the 2-image panorama of Ox Bow Bend.  I just started experimenting with the Buffalo and hope to do more of the herds that roam here and maybe a moose or two.

Thank you for alowing me to share my experiences and please remember I welcome your feedback and questions.

I also want to thank Dave Gallagher owner of Capture Integration in helping to keep the equipment bags filled with great equipment.
