  • Gentlemen, it is indeed the recent Lomo 120 I was referring to, not the Lubitel. The Lomo 120 has glass lenses, but it it still expensive for what you get compared to Wye's Fuji. BTW, I have the...

  • I tried the 6 Plus in the shop and I was impressed by the image quality and well controlled noise. Considering that the best camera is the one that you have with you, with the 6 Plus in your pocket...

  • More interesting is the recently introduced Lomo with 120 film. In itself a rather cool entry to medium format cameras, and portable as well, but it is as expensive as a 2nd hand MF Fuji...

  • A very good series !
    It reminds me a bit of the work of Edward Burtinsky.

  • These are interesting times. Unless someone needs a compact camera right now (as in, the old one is broken), then it is better to wait a few more weeks and see how the X30 and LX8 will measure...

  • Fresh, interesting "fabricated landscapes". A good idea, well executed.
    I was less impressed by the people pictures. They were very lomography-like. Spontaneous, but no interest for me.

  • Considering their history, I expect a new firmware for our nice XE1 as well. Currently the focus peak is difficult to discern in the EVF, I hope that a colour change would help.
    The performance...

  • The samples definitely look good enough.
    It would be interesting to compare side by side to an 85mm f1.8 on a full frame camera which I expect would have similar DOF wide open.

  • I understand that not all improvements could be applied to an XE-1 firmware, but it would be good to see at least the focus peak color change feature in the XE-1.

  • I don't know who made the sensor of this camera, but it is well known that the (reputedly capable) M sensor is designed and made in Europe, so that one is not a Canon or Sony sensor. The M sensor...

  • You have a point. I still use medium format (Rolleiflex, Fuji) next to my digital gear and it can be largely good enough.

  • Guys. Think about Ansel Adams. An example of slow, limited yet knowledgeable photo taking in nature. That is what can be cool with this camera.
    I'd still bring a more manageable camera as well....

  • While I like the idea of the device, I agree with your conclusion: this is a camera for thoughtful, deliberate shooting on a tripod, and then enjoy the quality afterwards. Using it as a P&S is a...

  • Go to a photography museum and look at the big prints, even the modern ones. They are usually taken with 4x5". You will be impressed with the quality.

  • Indeed, mrdancer, rent a 4x5 kit,study the operation, make landscape pictures, examine the results and you'd wish that you could delete your comment.

  • Let us talk facts, not perception. The lens is the most important part. With a good lens, and decent light metering and guesstimate of distance the result will be on par wiht a Linhof. A 4x5"...

  • i don't agree. This does not aim to be a a Technika, but a cheap entry to large format photography. Despite not having movements, it is good for large prints at museum quality if the proper lens...

  • The XT-1 with its wonderful clasic Contax-like styling is gorgeous. Having great experience with an XE-1, I am lusting after this.
    And it must be said that the Lomography Petzval, here shown as a...
