Please click the images to see larger versions. I’m moving away form 35mm digital photography and embracing medium format (MF). For the past week, I’ve been using the Pentax 645D, a weather-sealed digital MF camera with a whopping 40MP sensor. I’m not completely abandoning 35mm, but the majority of my landscapes from now on will be shot with the Pentax 645D. I can’t begin to describe how fantastic the image quality is. It’s not just the resolution. The colors, the dynamic range, the micro-contrast, and the sharpness of the files produced are like nothing I’ve ever seen. Here are just a few shots I’ve taken this week. You can’t totally appreciate the fine detail in these small web photos, even if you click the images and see the larger versions. I’ve made several large (24″ x 36″ and 30″ x 40″) prints, and that’s where the detail really comes through.
