I know, I know. It's easy to say MF because of the almost 1.5X the sensor area. But would happen if some manufacturer comes with a new camera system with a sensor, let's say 27X38? Would that be MF too?
It used to be no less than 41.5X56mm. 30X40mm is way smaller.
Just food for thought.
Yes , I know of your dream of a 5,6x5,6 sensor . Oh how much I would like a sensor of that size too .
It was my dream too , but I have given up that dream ! ! !
Which camera maker should want a sensor of that size ? ? ?
HASSELBLAD for shure not , because it would not fit their H-SYSTEM .
And . . . . . . who else is on the market , who could drive for a sensor of that size ? ? ?
For what other camera system would it make sense ? ? ?
Looking at the sales figures of MF digital backs , you must say and finally admit , there will not be a bigger square sensor .
Even if you want it , and me as well , I believe it will not happen .
So what I do , speeking in MF and LF terms , I have discovered my 6x9 and 6x12 cameras again
and shoot on film (KODAK EKTAR 100) a great film .
I don't like scanning , but still it is a good alternative .
