    Hazards of shooting digital medium format

    If you're watching this video with kiddies around, put on your ear buds or turn down the volume.

    That is absolutely hilarious!! I was talking to my local dealer and he was crying about the bullshit situation being described. Digital MF killed his analogue MF biz but created nothing exciting, new or affordable for him to sell. Either way he lost. It is pathetic.

    The funny thing is that Leica linked to that clip. I found that funny, if a company has that kind of humour and self-distance I wanna buy their products.

    FYI: The original link was taken down from the website you linked to. They claim the reason is for profanity.

    Here is another link which goes directly to the site where it was originally published:

    Basically, it says to me that advertising and hype are more important than function but people still don't want to pay what things are worth. :rolleyes:

    Sure but digital medium format is not even close to worth what you get for the price.

    It's basically a scam. You get the equivalent of a 6x4.5 sensor for some god-awful price usually in 20-30k+ range.

    Said rip-off price buys 1000s and 1000s of rolls of 120 film - all of which can be used from 645 to 6x9. And none of it suffers from the pitfalls of digital image recording.

    The core issue is that people want everything now, now, now and they'll gladly invest in ridiculous technology just to avoid waiting a day.

    Patience is no linger a virtuous aspect of our society - it's all about the "give it to me now" effect.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.
