Choosing a camera system has profound effects on many aspects of your photo career that go far beyond mere differences in mega pixels or file format. Every aspect of your craft, including the quality of your work, the fees you can charge and the flexibility of assignments you enjoy, rests on your choice of a camera system. Dual format cameras provide a perfect balance of film or digital capture flexibility that no other camera system can equal.
Size Matters Bigger is indeed better! There is simply no denying that as you increase your film or digital sensor size, so increases the quality of your image. Larger film or sensors result in better color and tone, less noise, and greater detail. The bigger format (6x4.5) is nearly 3x larger than 35mm SLRs and 4x or more larger than most D-SLR cameras. The superior image quality is visible not only to you but also to your client and ultimately those who will view your images. In addition, the large viewfinder is an excellent visual workspace for composing images.
Modular Design – Greater Versatility Dual format cameras allow you to configure them to meet your own shooting styles or needs. You may choose different viewfinders, film, instant or digital imaging backs. The interchangeability of these image capture backs provides the
flexibility you need to meet the demands of your clients. Today’s dual format camera systems offer you the
flexibility to address your clients’ ever changing needs with one camera system.
