Why do humans insist on building such structures ?
Joseph S Wisniewski: I can hardly wait to try this on the Linhoff M679. That little gem of a view camera just cries out for a medium format back with liveview. Now, granted the M679 is a little long for the lenses that make good normals and wides on a 55mm diagonal sensor, but there are still a few tolerable offerings. For product, this thing should be a killer.
You can keep the Fuji 645 lenses and body that the vultures slap a "Hassleblad" label on.
Credo 40 is available now for $10995 back alone or $13995 with DF+ and Schneider 80mm LS lens
This isn't the best back for a technical camera due to microlenses. A Phase One or Credo back would be a better choice. I use the IQ140 on a Cambo WRS with Schneider digitar lense. Blows away drum scanned 4x5 film
This forum is a hoot. I've never seen so much bickering anywhere outside of a courtroom
Gesture: If nothing else, I expect it will take a while for 3rd party RAW converters to master this sensor output. What Sigma can do with the RAW file with its Sigma Photo Pro will be an important part of the image equation.
I wish Dick Merrill were still alive to give his take on this.
Iridient Developer supports DP Merrill files. Likely Quattro as well soon.
Amazing how many experts there are here, NOT. Why do you think this isn't an improvement over the other DP2 Merrills ? Surely Sigma knows what they are doing.
noegd: A local shop sells the DP Merrill for 399€ (each, not the three of them) Maybe I should get one before the last "true Foveon" cameras are gone?
Had an original DP1 and loved its IQ (in good light).
Do you really think it's a step downward ? Come on open your mind a crack
I wonder if Hasselbad (sic) will offer one with ostrich skin grip for $10,000
I read he shoots with Phase One back and Schneider lenses
Seems like a laughable waste if time to me
I loved my MGB back in the late 60's but wouldn't want one now. Same idea for this one.
16 Megapixels seems so passé
Reilly Diefenbach: Still 299, still way too much.
Buy an IQ digital back you'll get it free
What's film ?
Makes a Sony RX1 look like a good deal
I had a Fuji DS300 back in 1997. I think it cost about $2500. One megapixel ! Wasn't bad though well made
Nice to see an article like this instead of the latest piece of techno trash
Mushy photos = Silver Award ? That's weird

So you are an a-hole
