Beautiful High End Medium Format System. CNET Article, Phase One 65+ Review. So what does a medium-format camera with the price of a midrange BMW get you?Big, luscious images, for starts. But brace yourself for even more sticker shock, because there are some professionals who spend more than an order of magnitude beyond what I did.
This is the domain of medium-format digital cameras, whose sensors have roughly twice the surface area of a high-end SLR for maximum image quality. Medium-format gear is beyond my means but not beyond my curiosity, so I was pleased with an offer to try one out.
In this case, it was Phase One's top-of-the line products--the 645AF and newer 645DF cameras, the P65+ image sensor back that can be attached, and a handful of lenses. Such gear appeals chiefly to fashion and commercial photographers, the types who produce full-page ads of glamorous models and diamond-encrusted watches.
Lacking the gaggle of assistants, spacious studio, and forest of flash equipment common in this realm, I'm not equipped to put a modern medium-format camera through its full paces. But I'm not a bad or inexperienced photographer, so for those who've wondered what a medium-format machine is like, here are my impressions.
So what do I think of a camera with this price tag? Chiefly this: you want to dive into the photos the P65+ can produce. The shots cry out for giant monitors, poster-size prints, or constant zooming to explore the details of a shot. As an example, look at the shot I took of San Francisco below.
Using the gear was eye-opening in many ways. Let's start with the fact that it was worth more than all the cars I've owned in my life.
Even the rugged Pelican case in which the products are packaged cost more than a lot of people's cameras. But, as the saying goes, you get what you pay for. One data point: DxO Labs, which subjects photographic equipment to a battery of tests, rates the P65+ sensor top among the 102 it's tested.
