Keith Cooper: Interesting but what about that Laowa 24mm f14 relay 2:1 macro lens?

@AlanG I think you are confusing sensor crop factor with lens magnification. However I'm curious on how you come up with the 96mm number.

Nikonandmore: It's quite a remarkable psychological fetish that most discussions about large format photography are invariably dominated by people that have NEVER shot a single photo with anything else than a consumer camera. But I am yet to see ONCE a single pro/larger format photographer jumping into negative discussions on mainstream gear they don't know anything about. Worse, pros openly accept input, new ideas & strive in being educated about all matters of photography while others stuck in defending their lesser gear against stuff they've never seen, used or tried.

So even though the Fuji isnt cheap, not perfect & can't fit everyone's budget, it's a camera to admire & learn many things from.

Ignorance is painful & even more is the lack of its awareness. And Im the first to personally insist on learning & listening more than I talk. Ultimately all photography is about who takes the photo, NOT about gear. But using better gear (because you understand & respect it) means you also deserve it!

This is Medium Format though :D

WastingTime: Make 3 leaf shutter lenses and you have a serious competitor for P1/Hasselblad.

@IdM photography still cheaper to buy a leaf shutter lens than to move to a new lighting system
@nicolaiecostel spend thousands on a new camera system to rent another camera system. How does that makes sense?

It's simple really. You want to compete with the MF big overpriced guys, you offer what they offer, at a better price. The pro guy is not thinking "hmm yes, this camera makes sense, now I only have to replace my entire lighting system and that's it."

left eye: Is this or is this not the Sony sensor in the 645z / X1D / 50MP backs, etc?

EVF : say the sensor is active for 15mins, then I take a photo.

OVF : the sensor is not active for 15mins, then I take a photo.

Which will have the cleanest image? - less noise, less hot pixels etc,

or is EVF all about shooting quick and then turning the sensor/viewfinder off, or are sensors these-days not touched by the heat of being constantly on for deliberation.

Dry ice might be too much, but you're not that far off. Shooting in the sun at 91F using live view will add more noise to the image than shooting in a cooler location with an OVF.

Azathothh: OMFG a tilting screen! This is for noobs only, teen hipsters selfie takers instagram users! The will break on day ONE. Digital PHotography is dooooomed!

\sarcasm

As a professional photographer. I found the tilting screen to be extremely useful when shooting products or pretty much anything shot from above. In fact I was very disappointed that Canon hasn't made the tilting screen available for the higher end models.

WastingTime: I am a photographer and I find this funny. But if anyone wants to remain attached to some old camera you can sell all your furniture and start buying broken stuff on eBay just to prevent that it ends in the trash.

IT'S JUST AN OLD CAMERA, MILLIONS WERE MADE, SOME END UP IN THE BOTTOM OF THE OCEAN, SOME ARE IN USE, SOME ARE BEING CRUSHED, SOME WERE PROBABLY USED TO KILL SOMEONE.

Crushing an old camera is not vandalism dude. Comparing an old camera to a human being is not very sane either.

'We’ve made it part of our mission to ensure our photos are real.'

A never ending debate. What is a real photo anyway? Are Black and White photos real?
what about if I move a slider to make that water a little more turquoise?

WastingTime: the oculus and vive experience still seems to demand a lot of money for a somewhat complicated setup. We need a high quality VR viewer that doesn't need to be attached to a pc somewhere. The PC should be the size of a cell phone so you can put it in the headset already.

Are you kidding? yo deleted my first sentence where I clearly say OCULUS and VIVE, which are the ones that provide the most immersive experience, close to what true VR is supposed to be like. You won't get that kind of power from current phones in front of your eyes.

I'm aware that there is VR gear that works with the phone. But not Oculus or the HTC Vive, those need to be hooked to a computer, with a cable. They even sell the computers on their website, I don't know what's funny about that.

Azathothh: Sigma is poop.

I know, we must all use Zeiss glass otherwise our photography wont be good enough. Sigma lenses lack "Character".

What lighting are they using to keep the painting evenly illuminated, or the camera does that too? This intrigues me, as a photographer that has shot art before, paintings can and will be difficult. Specular highlights on the shiny oil strokes are not impossible, but hard to control, and sometimes this means changing the light setup for each painting.

How does this camera solves that?

In reply to:

zzzxtreme: Will there be a smaller version (with same sensor but mirrorless and less features) somewhat?

Sensor aside, this is about the physics of the lens, since they do not resolve such fine details like those than a 100 mp sensor can capture, they were not designed to do so. Therefore, it has nothing to do with the size of the sensor. You'll get a 100 mp file, but the image will be soft when looked at 100%. Post-capture sharpening might help a little, but new lenses would help a lot. Even Phase One has replaced most of the original Schneider lenses with new ones that have improved resolution.

While you could use the lenses for the 645Z, I don't believe that the resolving power of those lenses will reach to 100 MP. MTF charts are out there, somewhere.
