Hmm. I like this idea. I think wide is the future.
But only 20 more mm on the short end, and we could've had 56x56mm, and it only would've cost, like, $120,000 dollars! Come on DALSA! Get your act in gear!
But seriously, let's take a look at the numbers here:
The new "10" back gives you a 3:2 20x30 inch print at 300dpi right out of the camera. Daddy likes.
Cropped to 4:3, you get a 20x25 inch print at 300dpi.
Compared to a P65+, at native file size, which is already at 4:3 to begin with, you get approx 22x30 inch print at 300dpi. Not a huge difference to me.
I'm guessing the Aptus and Sinar backs will be identical? Or does Sinar choose to not go with the wide chip, and use something like what Phase is using?
