Phase One IQ180 Tour 21.2.13 Day 1

To say I was excited was an understatement!!!

The night before I had been to TEAM DIGITAL to pick up the Phase One IQ 180 and the 645DF+ along with the 80mm Leaf, 150mm, and 28mm focal plane lenses which in 35mm camera terms is a 50mm, 90mm and 18mm (roughly).

I have to thank Trevor from Team Digital for all his help with the run down on the camera and on the Capture One software lesson.

I still had a lot of packing to do that night so i never really got to play with the Phase One once i got it home, and having to weeks with it i didn’t think would matter too much.

So with a 6:30 start i kissed the wife and kids goodbye and off I set for Esperance, it was very over cast that day and a lot of constant drizzle, I was looking left and right and every tree, fence, rock , line on the road was a potential photograph as i was itching to get some shots.

Attached are a few images of the drive from Perth to Esperance, the first two tree shots are near Ravensthorpe and the salt lake is lake King just north of Ravensthorpe

I have to say that at this point i had only used the Phase One for around one hour and  with that nice big clear touch screen on the back it felt like i had used it for months, it was that easy to use!

Anyway after a nine hour drive and several stops on the way i made it to Esperance, but with Cape le Grande camping grounds full i had my first spanner in the works….

more of day one to follow………
