I don't get it. Why should I haul around all of this 4x5/8x10/11x14 gear, sheets of film, film holders, light meters, changing bags, etc, when all i have to do is carry a pocket point and shoot.
I haul around a scanning back.. and it's really no more than what i'd carry around if i were using my 8x10. .. in fact, with the new control unit, it's not much more than i'd haul around with a 4x5 and film/film holders.
I find advantages to it. For the time i shoot, wind is minimal (morning light). If it's an issue, then i shoot with the 1dsmk2. The detail, color and insurance that a shot has worked and is complete (no soft corners, no film holders with light leaks, no lab to expose or develop improperly) offers me an advantage that makes me willing to carry it.
It's one of the two tools that i haul around with me. If the conditions allow, then i get the shot with the betterlight. if the conditions don't , then it's the 1dsmk2 and a t/s lens stitch.
Your images are beautiful, and I'm sure much more so in print. But Betterlight is not going to replace their (I assume) declining business with landscape photography. Phase One and Aptus are not only their competition in the studio. I'm stunned (or impressed with better light marketing) that Sexton says a camera that takes exposures in minutes is something landscape photographers should keep an eye on. Perhaps that was an editing mistake. Perhaps he said that the camera must remain unmoved for so long that " it's easy to keep an eye on".
And I'm still a large format photographer.
