That's just beautiful.
I never could afford a Hasselblad, nor would I ever need one, but that is artistry.
Yes, but . . .
will it blend?
Magnification is of course independent of format, as it relates to the relative size of the object compared to the image projected onto the imaging plane (sensor, film etc.) In this context I should have referred to angle of view.
Depth of field control
To me one of the beauties of medium format was the ability to control the depth of field so much more than with 35mm. You can decide what you want in focus and the rest then just drops out. Sure you have to think a lot more about it, but then that always improves the results anyway.
I'll second the opinion of I have no need for one, but Oh boy do I want one.
Great review BTW. Nice to read a review that goes beyond "how many pixels"
I've had a CF-39 for a couple years now.
No, I didn't purchase it for myself, it was a 10th anniversary present from my Wife. To say I was floored would be a gross understatement.
I bought the body & lenses used, right out of college, and still use it for B&W film photography. Most of my nieces & nephews are fascinated by the "ancient" technology, and I trust the older three with the enlarger, unsupervised (my darkroom's a converted walk-in closet here in the office).
Adding new tech to this old hardware was really a brilliant idea. I actually use it more now than I did when it was film-only.
