Leaf Valeo 22wi + PowerBook 17 1,5 1,5GB

Postby monokul » Wed Jan 18, 2012 7:46 pm

Hi,

I have this wonderful Leaf Valeo 22wi back but I'm unable to run it with my MacBook Pro + Lion. So I'm waiting for a PowerBook 17 1,5Hz 1,5GB RAM. Can you please tell me what's the best version of capture software for such machine with Snow Leopard? I'll shoot tethered in studio. Second question - is there any point in using FireWire 800 instead of 400 with the Valeo? In a couple days the Mac will be with me and I'll keep all of you updated about the experiments.

P.S. I'm using Mamiya 645AFD for the Valeo 22wi

Thank you
!

Hi

There is one quirk with Valeo, this is that we have never implemented support for this back in the 64bit version of LC since it was discontinued since long at the time we first launched 64bit version,
But at the same time we have never removed it from the 32bit version of LC.

So you should be able to download and install 32bit version of 11.5.1 here http://www.mamiyaleaf.com/downloads_1151.asp
install it on your new MacBook PRO and tether your Valeo.

The version that Ulf has posted should also work on your Lion machine. You will need a 400-800 cable though, which you can order through any of our dealers: http://www.mamiyaleaf.com/fale_uk.asp

Hi there,

The Valeo 22 Wi worked flawless on the both machines MacBook Pro i5 Lion and the Powerbook G4 (5,5) Snow Leopard. I used the Leaf Capture 11.5.1 on both machines since there was sign of slowing down on the Powerbook. I tested the LC8 on the Powerbook and it's stable but there is not so much functionality compared to the LC 11.5.1. Thank you guys for the support. Later I may post some pictures if I produce good enough to showoff. :D

P.S. I use the original 400/400 firewire cable with cheap 400/800 converter. I'm waiting original converter from the U.S.

Best,
Momchil

Hi again,

recent practice showed that I probably overshoot the back and a message about corrupted data image shows up on the computer. However the back allows me to continue shooting but there is no image on the computer after the message. I'm not sure is there overshooting or just a problem with the back. I have to unplug the cable and plug it and reconnect the camera trough the software which is stable as a rock. This happens trough the firewire 400 and 800 so I doubt in the back. However this is happening 2 to 3 times a shooting so I monitor the computer after every shot. I've also noticed that I measure the light for a 100 ISO and I shoot 50 and the images are great. They are not underexposed with the Leaf but underexposed with the Canon 1Ds MarkIII. I love my Valeo 22 wi with the Mamiya 645AFD.

I'm really really interested to know what software exactly you're using to get your Mac + Lion working. I've tried and can't get the software to recognize my camera. I'm running v. 10.7.5.

Thanks,
