I've been meaning to get another film camera for a while as I used to shoot a Fuji GSW690III MF camera with Velvia 50, 100, Kodak E100 and Fuji PRO160. A few years ago I sold my Hasselblad H2 with Phase One 33MP back and film back and the Fuji690. I sold these two cameras and at the advice of other photographers I know, switched over to a Canon 5D Mark II system with a 24mm TSE II lens. I've never been more disappointed! Canon is for Wedding photographers and hobbyists, not people that want sharp, gallery quality prints. After two years now of struggling to continually re-program this damn thing to reduce the constant noise it produces while shooting scenes at civil twilight I've had enough! ("Low noise at HIGH ISO" - my ass Canon! It should say "some noise at low ISO, more noise at 400 ISO and a LOT more noise at 1600 ISO and Oh Yeah... don't stop down more than F8") I'm selling the Canon kit and going back to film! I've always known that large format film was what the top commercial shooters have used for years but didn't think I wanted to enter that arena due to certain limitations and the cost of scans. Now... I'm seriously considering it! I think I'll get about $3800 for my Canon kit when I part it out and then use that to re-invest in another system. My initial thoughts were to buy a Nikon D3200 with 12-24mm wide angle zoom and then take the rest of the cash and buy a Mamiya 7ii with 43mm lens. This would give me two excellent camera and lens combinations and fulfill my digital needs as well. I could get both cameras and lenses for around $4400. The Mamiya 43mm lens is about as sharp a lens as money can buy and the 6x7 format DWARFS even a full-frame 35mm. Then I got to thinking, a 4x5 can take 4x5, 6x12, 6x9 and 6x7 format with different backs and attachments AND at the 4x5 size there's nothing on earth that I cannot shoot and capture tremendous detail. The caveat is I've never owned or shot a 4x5 camera and have some reservations about going there, as a good Walker or Wista with a decent Schneider super-angulon lens would set me back about $4400... my entire budget would be blown on only one camera! My goal is to produce gallery quality prints for landscape and architecture work. I know here in Austin architectural work doesn't pay enough to justify using it for basic shooting but with the quality able to be produced for landscapes I figured the investment and the move could pay off down the road. Any thoughts?
