Just a note on settings. Remember, this is medium format thus the camera setting will differ from that of a 35mm camera. We routinely use 2-flash units but sometimes 3. The f/stop is normally set at either f/8 or f/11 for the GF120. While we've included the shutter time please remember that this is the total time between opening the shutter, pressing the drop button then closing the shutter. One hand holds the shutter release - one hand is pressing the drop button on the phone. The timing in reality is much faster.
We'll be doing more as the summer progresses so please stay tuned. Feel free to leave a comment or question and we'll get back to you.

Laowa 17mm GFX
I stopped testing filters shortly after the 92mm thin mount filter. I would have preferred using an 86-mm thin mount however one wasn’t available at the time. I believe the combination of the step-up ring and thin mount filter is less thick than a normal size filter and less as thick as adding a filter system such as either a Wine Country or H&Y. Having stopped the filter testing I went instead to pure image quality attempting to answer a question of what this lens is capable of without any filter.
Testing outside is one thing, how does the lens hold up inside in a narrow space. The mission at Tumacacori worked well as a test bed.
And last one. I had originally set this up as a layered shot shooting one file for the shadows the other for the light. This is not the result of that idea; instead it is one capture. Processed in C1 it shows the amount of detail in the shadows that one can achieve using a GFX100.
