Nice sentence, indeed! Record set as the longest? This I don't now.
More seriously, I understand your frustration. Digital MF format has changed the way to handle things and the gear to be used with, even more in "view-camera" shooting. It's still in constant evolution, on all sides: resolution, quality, handling, speed, match of the camera with the sensor, lenses, software, etc ...
We, understand "Camera/back makers", would be happy to have such sensors so-called full-frame, but current technology with related costs give it the limits. We are all trying to cope with the reality of today, and IMO we do it quite well: this reminds me having read in the begining of the 90's the following, concerning digital:
"If film would not exist, we would have to invent it"!
Does this still apply? I don't think so.
Let's be honest and recognize that digital is fantastic, and the images produced with it are as well, at least that is my opinion.
Damn right. And I'm back to my Fighting Weight.
What's just frustrating about all this is, when you've built "a look" out of shooting a 6x8cm film camera for so many years, and then one day, they tell you, "It's time to shoot digital", but then they don't hand you another 6x8 camera, but instead, a sissy little 645, with a whole different kind of focus fall-off, and then, here come all the back makers, and just to mess with you even more, they don't make the chip match the (sissy) camera, but they make the chip *even smaller*, and then have the gall to call it "a full-frame camera", well, yeah, it kinda gets under your skin a little bit.
Does that set a record for longest run-on sentence?
