  1. Anyone else seen this? http://www.twelvephotographers.com/. It's sort of like Tour de Camera but with MF. I reckon we should do this as well. Anyone up for it? I'll buy an A12 back, we can come up with a theme, and then we can take it from there. Reply if you're interested, serious only! Once we have 12 'blad photogs (including myself) we can kick this off. OK, we have 12 photogs: 1. Lee J (Switzerland) 2. KevinHorn (Minneapolis, MN) 3. Spencer Wells (NYC, NY) 4. ZanderT (NYC, NY) 5. midwestshred (Santa Monica, CA) 6. EspSkate (Bay Area, CA) 7. WestonKruse (Austin, TX) 8. fadedpastels (Albuquerque, NM) 9. Zane (Orlando, FL) 10. éS Accel (NYC, NY) 11. SteveLaClair (Raleigh, NC) 12. himynameiserik (Southwest, CT / Portland, OR) I've got a back, which i'm in the process of testing. Once i know it's good i will sort out the route and let everyone know it.

    Tour De Hasselblad Anyone?

    Well it's now been 4 years. I was in NY last October, I could have organised something. I'm in Pittsburgh PA in June, I could maybe organise something. ZanderT?

    Hurrah! I've been getting my fix on /r/analog and uploading random projects to my site: https://leejo.github.io/projects/ Glad to see SP is still one of the last surviving skate photo sites, even if the skateboarding link is tenuous these days and it went away for a bit. Good job Steve.

    Skateperception is back?! I sent an email to ZanderT about a year ago, as it's still with him.

    Hmm, don't see you on the list: 1. Lee J (Switzerland) 2. KevinHorn (Minneapolis, MN) 3. Spencer Wells (NYC, NY) 4. ZanderT (NYC, NY) 5. midwestshred (Santa Monica, CA) 6. EspSkate (Bay Area, CA) 7. WestonKruse (Austin, TX) 8. fadedpastels (Albuquerque, NM) 9. Zane (Orlando, FL) 10. éS Accel (NYC, NY) 11. SteveLaClair (Raleigh, NC) 12. himynameiserik (Southwest, CT / Portland, OR) Wouldn't it be easier to mix this around a little? My US geography isn't great, but wouldn't this work better: 4. ZanderT (NYC, NY) 10. éS Accel (NYC, NY) 11. SteveLaClair (Raleigh, NC) 12. himynameiserik (Southwest, CT / Portland, OR) 5. midwestshred (Santa Monica, CA) 6. EspSkate (Bay Area, CA) 8. fadedpastels (Albuquerque, NM) 7. WestonKruse (Austin, TX) 9. Zane (Orlando, FL) Hey, and you know what - I'm going to be in Orlando FL in June so i could grab the back before i go! Haha...

    How about in everyday use? Is it a pain in the arse to focus? Is the meter accurate? Is the 45mm f4 fast enough? Does it work for shooting people? I've got a project i'm about to start and was going to use the 'blad, but i think it'll draw *way* too much attention. I think the x-pan might work pretty well (and i can use it for another project i'm working on too). Edit: Eh fuck it. I've just ordered one and will see if it works. If it doesn't i'll sell it.

    Anyone here used an X-pan? Thoughts? Pros? Cons? Yes? No?

    He doesn't, he's just out to confuse us all.

    *Gah!* Ok, where is the actual back that is part of this process at?

    If you're not on the list then why do you have the back?

    Eh, he can make up for it by shooting a really good photo. FLstrange - PM me if you still have trouble getting hold of a darkslide.

    Any luck? If not: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Hasselblad-Film-Magazine-Dark-Slide-Authentic-OEM-Hasselblad-part-lot-1-/381303124586?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item58c76ff26a 10 bucks, seems like a good deal to me.

    Do you have another back you could use the dark slide from so you can send the back on its way and then get a replacement for your existing back?

    Wait wait wait, $33k isn't the total investment? That *does* seem way high then.

    If it's a 1,000 run edition of a company within reach of Steidl then i'd say the quoted figure is pretty reasonable then. I'd still want a cost breakdown of course, and an idea of sale price so you can work out the break even figure (i'm also assuming that they will give you a number of copies as part of the investment, and allow you to purchase more copies at cost should you want to). Props!

    Have they given you any details other than $33k, because if i were going to shell out that kind of coin i'm pretty sure i'd want a full breakdown of exactly where the costs are going along with a pretty strong contract - and even then $33k sounds way too much unless it's something like a 1,000 run edition by Steidl or something pretty elaborate (probably a low estimate for a publisher of that quality, but you get my point).
