Using D800 as a medium format camera [IMG]
Sep 26, 2012

With D800 I got the MF I always wanted to try but never really wanted to own because of the price and weight. I don't know if D800 really is comparable with MF. When it comes to resolution it is I suppose.

Then there is the 1:1 format. D800 doesn't have a 1:1 crop format, but only 5:4. Of cause you can crop in post, but MF is also associated with a thorough "live composition": You have to get it right on the spot - cropping reduces IQ. Of cause tripod is obligatory. MF is about IQ, composition and careful PP. And maybe the 1:1 format.

Not really me (all the time). I like to shoot in a more spontaneous way. But I think I have the MF option with D800. It pushes my style in that direction.

How about you, does D800 change your style, shooting discipline etc?


And a NON 1:1!

All handheld - shame on me...
