Hasselblad 1.7x converter on Leica S (typ 006)

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Hello,

 

I was wondering if anyone has any experience with the hasselblad 1.7x convert on the Leica S? I own the Hasselblad 300mm f4.5 and the Leica S Hasselblad adapter and when I connect the 1.7x converter it will not show the aperture for the 300mm lens and creates green lines in the picture. Just trying to find out if anyone else has any experience.

 

thanks

      A little background of myself, I earn my money by taking portraits and having multiple M systems and lenses I always carry a MF system because I love the rendering for my staged photoshoots. I started with an S2, tried the S006 and upgraded my S2 to a S007. I was always very happy with my S007 but I often struggled with the 100mm f2 for focus and I believed the Mirrorless MF system would fulfill my needs better. After having test the Fuji (which was a piece of plastic and the colors and rendering were far off the S line) I loved the look and feeling of the Hasselblad X1D so I got rid of my S007 with 100mm f2 but kept my Summarit-S 70mm CS in the hope that the S3 would one day be released. The X1D was light, felt good in the hand, has sharp lenses with leaf shutters and has a moveable focus point and performed well at high resolution. In the beginning it was a honey moon I but after a while I started to miss the OVF and mature feeling of the S line and the lenses (although X1D lenses are very sharp) the XCD 45mm and XCD 90mm never gave me the rendering of the S lenses. The X1D also frustrated me of the short battery life, the feeling of a prototype often the focus point didn't move correctly and the interface was buggy even after all the latest firmware updates. 
      Today I found a demo model S007 in a new condition and grabbed it I will shoot it the following time with only the 70mm CS lens but I might slowely add the 100mm f2.0 (which I stupidly sold) or maybe a 120mm CS. 
      Some might call the S as we know it will be the end but I believe the S system will be a classic camera a true Leica cult camera. 
      Attached some photos of my shoots with the S...

      A spectacular sunrise from Playa Ballota, in Asturias (Spain), one of my favourite locations on this amazing coast. The northern coast of Spain is truly beautiful and relatively undiscovered: I can’t wait to go back there next September for one more week of great photography, friendship and fun!

      Hi,
      I have  Hasselblad V series lenses and also a M240. I was thinking of buying 'Kipon Baveyes Ultra 0.7x Adapter for Hasselblad Medium Format Lens to Leica M Mount' so that I can use these lenses. 
      Has anyone used this adapter, and what was the experiance?

      Dear All
       
      I wonder if anyone can give me some advice or help.
      We were burgled last week from north west London and all of my precious cameras have been taken.
      I don't have the reference numbers for the whole stash, but what was taken included
        an M2, son-1085967 with a 40mm/ f2 Summicron lens in a brown leather case   an M8 body, fabrication number 3196666, VK number 10702   an M9 body body number 0384,with 35mm/ 2.8 summaron lens , son-2081257   There was also a 50mm/ f2 Summicron and a 90mm / f28 Elmarit   as well as a Hasselblad 500C/M with an f/2.8 80mm and a f/3.5 100mm lens   and my old Nikon FM2 with a 24 mm, a 35mm, a 50mm and an 80mm lens   and a Canon 5D mk 2 body   a Polaroid SX-70   an old battered Mamiya 645 in a metal case   I'm devastated, not least by the M2/ 35mm  which was the first Leica I bought, and which after a particularly terrible time working in DRC was the only thing that was evacuated with me.   I wonder if anyone has been through the same devastating experience and can offer any advice? The police have done forensics/opened a case but is that all I can do?   I’d be hugely thankful for any help/ lead in this   All best   Miriam

      Hello,
       
      Took my Leica S2 out in London yesterday to see how it performed out of the studio. Took a total of about 50 shots in groups of a dozen or so in 3 locations.
       
      Apon my return I discovered that instead of my usual CF AND SD cards I only had the SD card in the camera. Strangely the S2 only saved 8 images (all DNG) to the SD. A single image from the first location. 7 from the second and none at all from the last location.
       
      This has never happened before. The battery was fully charged and didn't require changing during the day. The SD card has plenty of space on it. BUT the S2 was set to save in parallel and I've never not had both CF and SD in the camera together AND The camera was set to save DNG only.
       
      I'm trying to reproduce the same issue now. Seems that there's maybe an issue with having the camera set to parallel saving when DNG only is selected and there's only an SD card present.
       
      Can anyone confirm that for me? Or could this be something more serious?
       
      Cheers,
       
      Freggio.
