Leaf apparently updated their 56 mp medium format back. A friend who uses Leaf backs sent me this.

The internal rotating sensor is another feature to think about. Nice feature

If you can, try finding a hasselblad CFV 39 to rent. As long as you dont have to get too crazy with adapters, tethering and flash sync, its a KILLER back... HUGE(larger than 36x48mm) sensor pumping out 39mp. You can see the muscle fibers in someones iris...and your reflection in the pupil...

Yea, sure would be nice but the $30k price tag sort of puts it out of reach for me. :(


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

Yes. The new Leaf ones are the Credo ones. On par with the Phase One IQ-series.

Well, they finally caught up to Ektar. Now, on to Portra and B&W!


"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.

Beats any colour slide film by a mile, though. And beats any colour film, of any type, for resolution.

For the record, Ektar film looks awful, IMO...
