LJ - Eljot: The MFT chart does not indicate the aperture, therefor it is useless.

@ Favorable Exponynt : Ok, now I see it. That is a typo, of course.

lacix: I wonder if this movie could be done much easier with today’s digital technology – Maybe even with the popular A7S II 4K ?

In this interview http://www.visual-memory.co.uk/sk/2001a/bl/page1.htm John Alcott says he used 5254 color negative film for the entire movie. That was a 100 ASA tungsten film by Kodak. He pushed it to 200 ASA. With modern cameras you can use ISO far higher than ISO 1600 so it would be no problem to use a conventional T/2 lens.

That makes no sense at all.

I doubt that it is wide open.

If it is wide open it would be very good.

That is a far better question.

Cameracist: Please, what is a m4/3 equivalent of those lenses? Thank you.

I suspect it is not that easy.

The image ratio is the same whitch makes it easy:

Diagonal of the P1 100MP-senor is 67.20 mm and the diagonal of an 4:3-sensor is 21.64 mm.
21.64/67.20≈0.322
=> XF 100MP x 0.322 => 4:3
One 13-26mm f/1.3-1.8 and one 24-48mm f/1.3-1.8 would be needed for equivalent angle of view and depth of field.

LWW: Going medium format in 1990 was the worst thing I did for my photography. To heavy, to tired or lazy. Mamiya 645 kit. M43 is the best thing for my photography, light and convenient. No-one questions IQ over image impact for sales.

Edit: sorry, wrong comment.

ShootFilmNotMegaPixels: Does Phase One have film backs or can you mount of a film back with an adapter?

As far as I know no. The last camera with support for film back was Mamyia 645 AFD III.

Marty4650: I need to find an adapter... so I can use these lenses on my Panasonic GM1.....

Is there a smart Phase1-PentaxQ adapter?

AshMills: Equivalence police- that's 16-32mm f1.6-2.4 and 30-60mm 1.6-2.4 to you.

I would like to have a 48m-96mm f2.6-3.6 for my 24x36 mm² camera. I think that is a handy range.

The Name is Bond: The X-rite is a usability nightmare. Such clunky software.

Argyllcms is also available for mac. Buy a cheap Spyder4 and use it with argyllcms! Or just leave it the way it is!

Truebar: If you want to satisfy everybody, then please put image stabilisation into the camera body. Thanks in advance.

Ok, IBIS would not work with the XF-mount or would compromise the IQ too much. I get that. But sating that IBIS would be a b*s* feature is ... well, b*s*.
And a touchscreen can be convenient at low camera angles. The screen has to be tiltable though.

So is the Spyder software. I purchased a Spyder4 lite for my Eizo ColorEdge because the only diffenrence in the to the more expensive ones is the software and I don't use the software at all. I use the Eizo software of course. Before I had a ColorEdge I used Argyllcms. That software seem to be quite capable and is easy to use (for a command line software).

sneakyracer: I am really impressed by the 90mm lens used in these shots. Bokeh looks very very nice and the images are tack sharp at the point of focus. The Color looks ok but its a matter of processing taste. A bit disappointed with the iso 1600 shots. Noisy and soft. Again, might be an issue easily resolved with better post-processing.

But this is an intrinsic advantage.
