On Pentax 645Z added to studio comparison database article (136 comments in total)

Felix E Klee: In a professional context, for example for fashion photography in a studio, what is the advantage of a medium format camera today?

Today's full frame sensors and optics provide more than enough resolution for even very large printed ads, and dynamic range there is plenty as well. Furthermore, in a studio environment, I expect lighting to be perfect and the pro photographer to frame close to the final result.

For landscape photography medium format is interesting, but that's not my question.

I think resolution (image quality) could well be one answer. Retouching ease might be another.

I guess twenty years ago you could ask "why shoot with an 8x10 camera when 4x5 delivers all the resolution you need." Or "why shoot with a 4x5 camera when medium format has all the resolution you need." ...and so on...

Lassoni: uhh.. some painting is suddenly landscape photography?

I think it is a great photo and very rich in tones. If it looks a bit like a painting to some, big deal. Now if it was manipulated to look like a painting it would still be a nice photo but maybe not deserving as much respect.

ThatCamFan: That first picture does not even look like a photograph but a painting or crayon coloring. Who could ever tell it was a photograph? I can't & I still wont acknowledge it as a photo as it looks nothing like a photo.

Oversharpened? Maybe he just used a sharp lens. Please don't take this personally but I wonder if some folks who complain of oversharpening may not have great distance vision and nature itself is a little blurry.
Mind you, I don't like white halos either.

I think the problem is that some people think of photography as art and others think of it as photography.

The only Canon software I am interested in is Map Utility and it is a shame there is no way of knowing if it has even been updated (from 1.5.0.5) without having to download the whole package.

yslee1: Ok people, add HDMI out and a remote jack and we're in business for a drone camera.

And maybe a simple av out as well.

Not to belabour a point, but once you pay for office and workshops, employees, machinery, and all the other related expenses that come from running a business, you end up marking those pieces of metal quite a bit. But I guess you know that and maybe keeping your overhead low by working out of your garage.

And yes, I think they are expensive too.

photo_rb: First in its class? I guess that means f/2.8 because the Canon 16-35mm f/4 has IS.

Gotcha! I was a little slow to pick up because the difference between 2.8 and 4 is not important for my work but I understand that it could be to some. Thanks.

Really really? :-)

Then you know that pieces of metal cost a lot when they are used photographically.

These might be useful as "UAV" or drone cameras where weight is very important. I wonder if there is a way to stretch the WiFi signal to several hundred feet or more?
