I was rethinking my earlier post What's going on with the Hasselblad? I speculated that the reasons I'm shooting fewer frames was due to slower capture rates and write/review speeds (on the digital back).
Well, I kind of neglected the biggest difference and reason for shooting fewer frames. I'm zooming with my feet.
On the D3, I'm shooting either the 24-70mm f/2.8G or the 70-200mm f/2.8G both of which allow me to move "in and out" of the frame with the turn of a ring. For Kaley's most recent image, I remember climbing over rocks and having to rebalance myself simply to move in and out of the frame.
If you haven't figured by now, this has nothing to do with Hasselblad vs. Nikon. It's simply lens selection. I only have the HC 80(mm) 2.8.
Upon further review however, I foresee a lot of "zooming with the feet" to come because Hasselblad's lens lineup does not include many zoom options. In fact to my knowledge there are only 2 zoom lenses (50-110, 35-90) for the H bodies. Both of these options overlap with the 80mm length and offer slower apertures.
In a way, this makes me more selective because I can't waste too much time walking in and out to get different length captures. Only time will tell how it really affects my ability to shoot with fixed focal length lenses.
