Re: Nikon and Sony to show Medium Format Cameras at Expo

The benefits of square format are that you don't have to tilt the camera 90 degrees to change from landscape to vertical format and have the associated shadow problems using flash. It also lets you get the full linear resolution of the sensor regardless of aspect ratio and if you decide to print square you're not using 1/3 of the sensor area and resolution. I actually find it a pain having to tilt my MFD Hasselblad compared to when I shot 6x6 with the V-series cameras. Mind you, I did like the rotating backs on my RZ67's. I'm still hanging onto my 553ELX in the hope that the prices on digital backs falls even lower
