Thats pretty much the size of it. If you need viable wideangles wider than 60mm then you need a 49 x37mm size chip. The CF 40mm and SWC work just fine with this chip size and the loss of 7mm from the frame size is insignificant relative to the 6x4.5 frame size.
The V series does work well with either of these backs ( I have the 132c) and depending on your needs the savings offerred by the CFV are quite considerable and there is the advantage of 16 bit capture and medium format looks over a DSLR.
Has anyone had any expeience or have any information regarding the Hasselblad CFV digital on the V series cameras ?
I understand that it is a square sensor. What happens with an 80 mm lens. Is the factor 1.5 so it makes it a 120 mm. Is it the same as lenses on 35 mm slr type cameras ? If this is true then even a CFV back on a SWC would only be the same as approx. a 60 mm lens with a film back ?
This would really limit ones wide angle photography. Am I missing something or is this the case?
The other thing I wonder about is there some type of viewfinder mask or is what you see what you get when looking through the viewfinder on the camera ?
Any information would be appreciated.
