Hasselblad H4X Compatability with Phase One Backs
Problem
Hasselblad announced the new Hasselblad H4X as a replacement for the growing base of tired H1/H2 cameras, but will this new camera work with my Phase One P series, P+ series or IQ series back?
Solution
Hasselblad has not offered any guarantee that the H4X will work well with the Phase One IQ or P+ digital backs, and it is therefore difficult for Phase One to recommend this as a viable solution.

Lens losing focus when body and lens mounted vertically in reprostand or tripod
Problem
Using the lens and camera on a reprostand or mounted vertically - the lens is sometimes loose or goes of out of focus. It seems like the gearing inside the lens is too loose. This happens mainly when the lens is in manual mode. Using the lens horizontally works perferct in manual or auto-focus mode. Focus stays in the same place. Because of the lens design the gearing and thereby Auto Focus is super fast. Keep in mind the number of lens elements and mechanics that is needed on a medium format lens design with a Leaf shutter. However using a tighter gearing with more resistance would cause this fast AF operation to be slower. Note that a workaround is described below this illustration.....
Solution
It is possible to "lock" focus simply by accessing the Custom Functions - named CF. Use the following CF menu: CF-10 - set to 2. Then the release button will only release. CF-12 - set to 1. Now the AFL button will handle the AF operation. The camera must be set in AF-mode on the lens and the AF...

Problem
When using Pocket Wizard Radioslaves with my Phase One 645 camera and the shutter speed set to 1/800 or higher I get black images. Shutterspeeds at 1/125 to1/640 my images becomes ok.
