rsjoberg: The only thing I don't like about DX is that the viewfinder frame is not as big and glorious as the 35 frames, which could never come up to the frame on my 6x4.5. The 35mm frame never fit the paper right. It was a movie frame.

In the film days it made sense because that's what there was. There were plenty of lenses. Size and weight were reasonable compared to medium format, and quality much better than anything smaller.

Why I would go back to it when I've got lenses that I like in DX and a D500 on the way is a complete mystery to me. And the quality is very sufficient. And it fits the paper sizes pretty good.

My 35 mm Om2 Olympus was mostly used for 'slides' so matching frame sizes was never an issue. As for print paper compatibility - I think that's why they invented the Stanley Knife!

My OMD M 1 is half the weight of my 7D and produces good image quality - use CPL for large prints

This is the technology I have been waiting for.

I am a clinically blind photographer with only a 3 degrees field of vision - like looking at life through a very long lens.

Having lost all my peripheral vision through stroke induced optic nerve damage I would like to think this technology might give me back a normal wide angle FOV.

Currently I use my camera's wide angle lens to to shoot groups of people in a room that I otherwise cannot see with my eyes.

How do I contact this clever man?
