justmeMN: BTW, today Canon announced that they sold 1.5 million interchangeable lens cameras last quarter, and projected sales of 5.5 million interchangeable lens cameras this year.

Well, photographers who shoot Canon setups also eat at McDonalds, they order fries, take photos of the fries with their Iphones for their Facebook page -- it is all clearly mutually dependent, isnt that obvious? :)

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

The smaller your sensor, the less light is available to be gathered in the same amount of time. Why is that so hard to understand?

Iso is a variable which affects small or large sensor cameras equally, so it is not a factor that can make up for the inferior light gathering ability inherent in smaller sensor cameras.

Aperture equivalency tells you the equivalent depth of field and total light you are gathering. http://www.dpreview.com/articles/2666934640/what-is-equivalence-and-why-should-i-care/2

At least people here seem to understand aperture equivalency. Goto any APS-C forum and you will find most posters in complete denial in regards to aperture equivalency.

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

And a dateback please, so I can have a nice big date burned into my film.

Joerg V: Thoughts:

a) Darn. Kidney already sold for D800 + lenses...
b) X1D's IQ is woohoo.
c) I would love to see some landscape images (taken from the window of my apartment).

Don't you have another kidney?😉

Gorgeous.

Wonder what that little structure to the left and behind the lighthouse is. Maybe a fishing platform?

In reply to:

Mike Sanservino: US Secretary of the Navy James Forrestal was present at Iwo Jima and witnessed from a distance the first flag-raising atop Suribachi. Forrestal was inspired by the sight of Marines erecting the flag, that he requested the flag be returned to him as a memento of the historic event.

Colonel Smith, flat-out refused Forrestal's request, considering the first flag raised over Iwo Jima to be the property of his Marine battalion. Colonel Smith ordered the first flag lowered and returned to his staff, and a second flag raised atop Suribachi so that the substitute flag could be sent to Secretary Forrestal. It was the second, larger flag that was photographed by Joe Rosenthal.

Thus, Forrestal never got his souvenir -- the Iwo Jima flag was too famous for even a cabinet secretary to keep. Of course, Colonel Smith was thwarted as well. Both the first and second flags raised over Iwo were turned over to the National Museum of the Marine Corps.

Marines are Marines... NOT soldiers.

The US Marines are an excellent outfit if you want to control some area on earth, but if you want to learn English, you are probably better off using a different organization.

In reply to:

magneto shot: rightname would be "C-medium format" or cropped medium format since that is what it is. its nowhere near the size of medium formats as reference in film days.

Marco is correct. A sensor with 35.00001 mm diagonal is Medium Format by definition.

This post makes me shutter with fear.

Tee1up: Short of selling a kidney, this won't ever happen for me but i would love to take this out for a couple weekends. There's almost a cool steampunk thing going on....

I dont think they rent kidneys. If they did, I wonder how the kidney repossession process would work.

In reply to:

StevenE: This thing is barely medium format. The sensor is only 22% wider than full frame.
For perspective, full frame is 62% wider than APS-C, and more than 100% as wider than MFT sensors.
Previous Hasselblads were 50% wider than full frame

Well, this also brings up a discrepancy with FF too. The "full format" actually sounds bigger than "medium format" or even "large format". Why cant we call FF what it is? "35mm format".

gipper51: Hmmm...can't wait till somebody like Metabones makes adapters to get 35mm format T/S glass on this body. It should cover the image circle, but probably lose shift. That will open up quite a system if you can deal with all-manual focus glass.

Plus I would imagine just about any medium format lens ever made could be adapted to this body.

Joe, while you are controlling the lens cap, who is lighting the flash power?

wolfie: Another nail into the DSLR coffin ... :))

Yake, I dont think you can cover everything of Wolfie's argument by just saying that this wont steal buyers of SLRs because they cant afford it. The fact is Ha$$elblad, a noted producer of quality photographic equipment, are putting a mirrorless design into a top of the line product is still significant. On the other hand, if you could show that it is the mirrorless design which is causing the high cost of the product, then I think you would have a better argument.

I suspect the increasing use of ganja has something to do with the proliferation of conspiracy enthusiasts.
