Wow, what a statement:

I always wondered which cameras he uses.

Don't miss the Raymond Meier images in that Alpa Gallery as well. Stunning.

It looks like a CF back which carries its own battery and can use CF cards.

Look at his photos in the gallery - they all seem to say Leaf Aptus 75.

Sorry but having owned an Aptus I can definitely say that what he has in his hands is not an Aptus.

Owning a CF back, I can tell you what he is holding in his hand certainly looks like what I own. I cannot tell which one but if it is one I can assure you it is a single shot version. Mine looks the same but has 2 small openings at the top for ventilation which I don't see here...

Sure, he might also use an Aptus but I don't seem to be able to find that gallery either. Why not use both  I am still pondering over getting a Aptus again as well. Lovely pieces of equipment .

Multishot with a copal shutter wouldn't make much sense anyway.

The cable to the back looks like the wakeup cable provided by Phase One - perhaps Hasselblad is using the same wake up cable ?

It is a wake-up cable. I just received a message that it is a H-fit P1. Hasselblad normally doesn't use that cable.

I was talking about the Meier images on the Alpa site which Mark was referring to:

If you select Meier, you get these:

Does anyone know if Gursky is the photog that shot large format images from fashion week and were recently featured in the Art Basel photo gallery on Lincoln Ave in Miami? There was one image in particular of Lagerfeld walking down the cat walk that was incredible.

hard to belive that he shoots this kind of subject. But you never know.

Gursky's Alpa/ Phase use is relatively recent. all his more famous images were done with film.
(and it shows, many are badly post-processed and suffer from excessive sharpening artifacts)

it seems stitched P65+ is the way for such big format image makers - like Gursky, Crewdson etc.

Looks like a Sinar eMotion back he is holding in his hand.

This thread reminds me of my childhood when my friends and I were smitten with the particular baseball glove that Mickey Mantle used. LOL.

Right!  Who cares?  Even if one liked his stuff, it's not the camera, stupid!
