    Anyone using a non-tethered digital back on a Medium Format camera? I am considering a back for my Fuji GX680 iii and would like some comments on model and level of satisfaction.
    Thanks in advance

    My suggestion, the money spent on a digital back could buy a whole lot of film.

    Hi Michael,

    you might want to hop on over to

    http://luminous-landscape.com/forum/index.php?showforum=16

    lots of DMF users there, here we're strictly analog, although many of us(ssshhhhh!!!!!) shoot d!g1+@l as well.

    you'll get lots of opinions(like here :tongue:), and the gx680III is a great system, for film or digit@l.

    -Dan

    And what does the FIRST word in my post header really mean; do I need to give the Webster meaning?

    I am sure most of us here have a digital camera. Many of us might shoot film and even have a preference for film; nonetheless I was under the impression there might be some knowledgeable people here who are able to provide some constructive advise before I make a decision - for whatever reason - to add a digital back to my arsenal.

    No we don't need Webster but since there are 80 billion sites on digital and only a couple on analogue, we tend to be pretty strict on not discussing digital here (although we might have a digital under the bed for emergency purposes only).

    From APUG's front page, perhaps you missed it on your way in:

    "Welcome to the Analog Photography Users Group, Founded 2002

    APUG.ORG is an international community of like minded individuals devoted to traditional (non-digital) photographic processes. We are an active photographic community; our forums contain a highly detailed archive of traditional and historic photographic processes."

    Sorry, but this is off topic for APUG.
