EXCLUSIVE: Samsung goes medium format! Canon and Nikon should be worried!

EXCLUSIVE: Samsung goes medium format! Canon and Nikon should be worried! | medium format digital photography | Scoop.it
My very good Samsung sources just unveiled a TERRIFIC news! It’s probably the rumor of the year and if it turns out to be true than Nikon and Canon should be worried! Since decades the pro market is in strong hand of the two giants. This could change soon thanks to Samsung. The leaked medium format camera will be announced for real!
And I can already share the specs to you:

1) The camera uses a 36mm x 36mm square sensor!
2) Samsung developed three different sensors. One 18 Megapixel sensor and two different 34 Megapixel sensors.
3) The lens you can see on the picture is a manual focusing 24mm lens.
4) It has a shorter lens-sensor distance than other medium format cameras (Editor’s note: Probably because it’s mirrorless)
5) On the road… AF lenses, EVF and optional accessories like grip, flash and screen.
6) The development is under phase two (That means Protocol, Viability and Marketing). Phase three is when the final decision will be taken.

DSLR vrs a MF Digital Back: The reason I switched to a Hasselblad

DSLR vrs a MF Digital Back: The reason I switched to a Hasselblad | medium format digital photography | Scoop.it

I recently made the change; the jump to digital medium format, and more precisely Hasselblad. I sold my Canon 5D Mark II and series of L lenses and am now the proud owner of a second hand Hasselblad H3DII-31 with about 7k clicks. Having enjoyed personal time with the Hasselblad setup now, I thought I’d do a small write up on why I made the full switch and gave up my DSLR.

Sinar lanTec, by Zoltan Arva-Toth

Sinar lanTec, by Zoltan Arva-Toth | medium format digital photography | Scoop.it

Posted by Zoltan Arva-Toth on November 23, 2012

 

"Sinar has launched a new camera for architectural and landscape photographers. The Sinar lanTec is a highly portable technical camera that can be used on a tripod as well as hand-held. The shift range is set effortlessly up to 20mm left and right. In addition, you can raise the lens by up to 25mm, or lower it by up to 15mm, which helps prevent convergent or divergent verticals when shooting architecture. In the event you wish to make stitched, rotational panoramic pictures, it’s good to know the tripod mount is physically located on the optical axis, however, for hand-held use, the tripod base can be removed quickly, thanks to its rapid and secure locking mechanism. As for composing the image, your Apple iPhone or iPod Touch can be connected to the lanTec via a special Sinar rotating adapter. This serves as a viewfinder which can quickly be set for either portrait or landscape orientation. Thanks to a range of optional adapters Sinar lanTec camera is compatible with a number of Sinar, Mamiya and Hasselblad digital back mounts."
