Well handling these big images has always been a problem. Remember people have made high res scans of medium and large format film for years - so at least the computers are quicker now and RAM's cheaper!

As to why they're a different shape, think of a medium format DSLR as three separate boxes. At the front the lens, in the middle, the mirror, and at the back the film or sensor. Remember with a medium format, that mirror is pretty darned big, hence the big body. And most are also designed to be held differently, hence the differences in grip and or viewfinder.

So Daniel, you tempted as your next upgrade?

Oh yeah I forgot, Gordon distracted me with these big cameras - like Nathan said, go big or go home!

Gordon do reveal which cameras you use the most :D

Just in case you hadn't noticed: Gordon is so impartial, that he cannot reveal his favourite brand. Because otherwise he will lose his independent stance in the eyes of everyone visiting (t)his site :cry:

Hi guys, I'm afraid Thomas is right. But if it helps, I do have several cameras from different manufacturers, and over the years, I've owned at least one from almost all of them.

rofl!

Ah dear, as much as I understand this, I must say I hate those types of things where people can not speak freely as it were.

Having a personal favourite camera(s) should have no influence upon the cameras that you review.

So its safe to say Gordon uses a lot of cameras, a lot of the time, and thats all we need to know!

Wasn't that a fun game - now back to normality :shock:



EDIT - CANON FTW!!!
