Hi all

Has anyone here ever considered an upgrade from the popular canon,nikon,fuji etc to a medium format system?and would M.C.B. even consider accepting the huge file size associated with these cameras?{Quality and file size is absolutely amazing}

Personally,i believe the large format size is for professional photographers that do this full time and for a company that can afford such systems,and the japanese modes i use now are good training should we decide to go to the medium format system down the track.I would like to upgrade but as i'm still working and and have another 11.5 years till retirement, a loooong way to go yet, but on the bright side i should be able to afford a medium format camera by then …...we'll see….

Canon SI

As to mychillybin, we are committed to keeping pace with continuous improvements in cameras (including medium format) and being able to process ever larger file sizes. From memory, the largest (unstitched) images we regularly receive at present are probably from Nikon D800's. They process well, and we love them.

The way years seem to be flying past for us at present, your 11.5 years will not take long!

cheers for now

Actually,the way technology is going, the lower end point and shoots will be able to supply those huge files sizes and DSLR properties by then {2025,2026}.Will be interesting to see what the future has in store as far as photography and digital imaging is concerned and even if there will be a need for such sites like this down the track,hopefully,photography has a long way to go yet ….cheers.

yes it is interesting the way technology is going, but with more pixels comes more demands on glass. When you pixel peep at images taken with high megapixel small sensor cameras it quickly becomes apparent that megapixels are not everything. My little gopro churns out 12mp images and while these look great on screen, especially the unusual ones when its slung below my hexicopter, there is a lot of noise and lack of clarity at the pixel size

My understanding is that the very fine D800 at 36mp certainly makes demands on glass. I have a nikon d610 on the way, so it will be interesting to see which of my lenses make the grade, and which I have to sell off and replace

Although i know nothing of Nikon gear i googled your d610 and well done on buying into the full frame system,you will notice a huge difference in the quality of your images,and as we all know the decent glass that goes with it will be more expensive than the body,not to mention the much bigger sensor size which is way more important than pixel size/count.Hope all goes well for you and think your Hexicopter will find trying to lift your new system a struggle,not that you would try it…….
