The problem with Canikon is ....(wait for it)

...they don't have an uprgrade path.

FF is just not enough anymore.

Seriously, this photographer here is using 8x10" film cameras and sells his prints for $125,000 a pop.

I purchased his recent documentary here:


Free trailer there, but the "brief encounters" documentary is avail for $10 from Amazon and well worth it if you're into this kind of photography. The details there indicate that he scans them, has someone do the pp on them, transfering the best details to the optimum one of the 60 frames he shoots for each scene.

The point being that Ricoh should quit fooling around with MF and build a decent 8x10 sensor camera. (Whoops, forgot that April 1st was yesterday). But cheers to Ricoh for the new Z, whatever the custard is called.
