but I know shit about it..but it seems appealing.
what, specifically, is appealing about it to you?
slow, expensive, heavy, bulky...basically not the easiest thing in the world to use...especiallly cause it's expensive.
BUT...the image quality is flat amazing. especially if you shoot B&W and develop/print yourself.
do you want help or not, asshole
I my mamiya
why don't you learn to stitch pics together with panorama software
like this guy does http://www.maxlyons.net/
can do 1+ gigapix0r pics if you got mad skills
stitching != 2.25"
I want the dramatic/high contrast/ black and white, amazing resolution.
plus the whole dealie that the camera is all metal and mechanic is really cool too
I want one
You're a fucking tool.
nothing makes you more pro looking than a medium format camera! fuck 1DsMKIII's, MF makes you MADD PRO SON!
I don't care about that.
you can stitch all the pics together you want, but you still won't get the tonal range and detail like you would with a medium format shot.
digital has better tonal range than film, and a 1 gigapixel image has more detail than medium format
read all about it here http://www.clarkvision.com/imagedetail/index.html
stitching a bunch of 10mp images together is not the same thing as a gigapixel image... and no shit a gigapixel will carry more detail than a MF image you fucking twat... but tell me, how many gigapixel DSLR's are there out there? a MF image is the equivalent of a 32 megapixels, you're pro-sumer/pro DSLR won't compare
And, do you have real world experience with both?
*edit* I just looked at your link. they're comparing 35mm film to digital... if we were talking 35mm maybe your link would be relevant, but since we're talking about 120, it's about as useful as evan.
35mm and med format film is made of the same stuff, just one is bigger. the detail retained is porportional to the area of the film. the site does have medium format comparisons, please read the web site. it is very informative. all of the issues you brought up has been discussed and painstakingly analyzed in that wonderful web site
not even worth the time to argue with you... you're obviously a digital nut sack rider, and measurebator who has no film experience and only goes by what you read on the net.... Please go back to POTN.
if you want the highest quality images, you have to do some measurebating
buy an SD14 or S5 Pro
I had a mamiya 645 super, but I didn't know what it was, and I sold it for like 600 bucks
aren't you a moderator? aren't moderators supposed to set a precedent on how people are supposed to treat one another on this forum?
no wonder this place is full of 7 year olds
