bstolk: So, what is the physical size of the sensor?
If it's the same one as in the Phase back (and it is), it's a 1.3 crop factor from 645.
RichRMA: Rather than these monsters, where is the collapsible medium format cameras of before, like the Fujis or Plaubels? Can you imagine a medium format camera smaller than a pro DSLR?
I've been dreaming of a digital follow-up to my Fuji GW690II for ages. Point is, however, all (current) MF lenses are designed with a flange distance large enough so that it allows for a mirrorbox. In other words, a whole new system. With a customer base as large as the current MF user group, it ain't gonna happen soon. We can still dream, though.
mpgxsvcd: Serious Question. How many of you shoot Medium Format or would switch to Medium Format if the right camera body was produced?
I shoot APS-C, FF, MF and LF. For the latter two I have film systems rather than digital, and the price is what's holding me back, esp. in the case of MF. For my commercial work, there's no need for anything beyond what my D800 gives me in terms of resolution, color, and dynamic range. For autonomous work, I'd definitey go for a medium format system if the price becomes reasonable. The fact that CMOS is here (and hence higher usable ISO) only makes it more interesting.
What is this, a camera or a camera plus back system?
That looks like one lens I'd like to own.... wonder what the price will be!
Is this an issue that affects all copies, or only some?
I hope they put it in LR!
Why do these article keep having their names altered? First the dog article became "creative canines", now this one went from 'fashion' to 'editorial'.
Excellent article, could serve as a blueprint for others. Really like how the article is built around a single shot, provides depth and insights.
I love these articles, but oftentimes when I get to the end I feel that they're not actually finished. I'm not complaining about quality, rather quantity. I know, I know, it's not a book and it's not even a payed service, but I would actually seriously consider to pay for more extensive articles.
jl_smith: The clicking can be heard in my camera even with smooth panning or slight tilting from one side to the other. It's definitely there and can be annoying if you're looking for it.
I tested the camera several times on video clips to make sure I wasn't just jerking the camera or rubbing a metal clip or something on the body, but nope it's there and it doesn't require jerking around in a lot of cases.
Even so, I'm not sending mine in - don't care about video that much.
I'd send it in anyway if I were you, if only for future resale value.
