    And it's real generous of them to include a 1GB memory card. :rolleyes:

    What's that, like 8 pictures and full rez.

    Photos that have to be blown up to billboard sizes. It's just a digital medium format camera…*I expect it fits the same uses as MF (film) does/did.

    I guess really commercial photography. For instance, those huge pictures of people wearing cosmetics which exist in shopping centres. I walked up to one of those the other day, a good 6 metres wide, and the detail close up was amazing!

    When I first saw this thread title the very first thing that I thought of was Hasselblad. Turns out I was right.:)

    It's interesting that they mention 'Moire free colour rendering' as one of the features. Last digital Hasselblad I saw on a shoot delivered shots riddled with moire.
    Admittedly it was coupled to a Leaf Aptus digital back.... but it left me somewhat dissapointed.

    Digital medium format cameras are sexy as hell. I couldn't ever see myself buying one, but a man can dream.

    I don't think I'd ever get one. If I wanted MF digital I'd get a digital back and stick it on a 500C/M. More fun. :D

    If it was moire, than I would assume it was the back's fault, since a good deal of earlier nikons and early D200s had the same problem and it was sensor based.

    I agree, but if I were to ever need MF professionally then I know I'd be shooting something high-end enough and with enough volume to warrant spending cash.
