Ever wondered what 22 megapixels could do for you? OK, I haven't either, or at least I hadn't up until now.
There is a very nicely written and illustrated review of the Mamiya ZD Digital Back
replete with 22 MP to be found at this PhotoCamel page
. It includes some comparison shots taken with the highly regarded EOS 5D full (35mm) frame DSLR. Have a look at the portrait shots at the end of the review.
I don't think I have fallen into the trap (
) of pointing you at a camera store this time! The source of the review is Frank Doorhof (a commercial fashion/glamour photographer) so I guess it is only fair to mention that his web-site is here
. He does good work IMHO.
The thought of owning a camera capable of this sort of image quality is, for most of us, just a dream but, hey, it is
nice too dream occasionally.
P.S. I have just found a link to the same review on Frank Doorhof's own blog site. OK, he's a commercial photographer so his site exists to promote his work but if you follow this link
you will find the same review. However, if you navigate through the subsequent pages you will find some more stunning images from this camera in his hands. If you need convincing then have a look at this image
