    (heresy?) Digital Back on MF

    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

    And for those non film moments a Fuji X-Pro 1 and Nikon D4 and D800E.

    Why are there no speaker jacks on a stereo camera?

    You shouldn't post digital stuff here. It upsets the natives.

    Try:

    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/...p?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 ), and the gx680III is a great system, for film or digit@l.

    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).
    Once a photographer is convinced that the camera can lie and that, strictly speaking, the vast majority of photographs are "camera lies," inasmuch as they tell only part of a story or tell it in a distorted form, half the battle is won. Once he has conceded that photography is not a "naturalistic" medium of rendition and that striving for "naturalism" in a photograph is futile, he can turn his attention to using a camera to make more effective pictures.

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