    Interesting article at Luminous Landscape telling the story of Phase One's development of the first (serious but not very compact) medium format back with a CMOS sensor.

    Interesting development for sure. Wonder if/when there'll be a significantly downsized MF camera!

    Don't see that ever happening. If you're shooting digital medium format, you're not going to be worrying about size. Besides, if I was paying $35,000 for a digital MF back I'd want some bulk and heft for my money.

    It seems that the same Sony sensor will also be used in forthcoming Hasselblad and Pentax digital MF cameras. Looks like Sony is planning to take over that sensor market entirely.

    Same sensor announced for the next Pentax MF digital. Seem like a LOT of fluff in the LL article.
