Medium Format Anyone?

Posted May. 26th, 2021 (3 weeks ago) by Daniel J. Cox

I’ve had some requests to update my blog due to my last blog post being a bit sad and difficult for some people to look at. Since I’m on the road working in Iceland I don’t have a great deal of time to really come up with anything amazing. But I did find this interesting piece on the medium format Hasselblad cameras which I’ve been toying with the idea of testing for quite some time.

Let me know what you think about me testing a Hasselblad or possible the new Fuji GFX100. When I’ve started dreaming about medium I have a hard time deciding which one I would want to go with. Would love to hear from my readers what they think about this whole idea. Am I crazy?

    Hi Dan,

    Many thanks for posting this new blog entry, I’m just into wildlife photography right now so haven’t given a lot of thought to landscape yet. The thought of carrying around another complete system would is rather daunting! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

    Best wishes, Peter

      You’re right Peter. It would be difficult to have another system. That’s part of what’s kept me from doing it. I was appreciate hearing from my readers and you make a good point. Thanks for joining the conversation.

    Hi Dan,

    I don’t think you’re crazy. Or maybe you’re crazy like me, because I keep thinking about trying one of these cameras to see what it can offer. The Fuji system’s range of lenses is more interesting to me, so that’s the one I’ve been thinking about — and the Fuji system is more aggressively priced. Probably not the choice for wildlife, but I can’t help but wonder about landscapes.

    At any rate, I’d be interested to hear your thoughts if you decide to test one. Do you have a project in mind?

      Thanks for joining the conversation Rick. I’m actually leaning towards Fuji myself. Nothing specific in mind for a particular project other than using it for my landscape work. I definitely wouldn’t even think about it for wildlife since I don’t wanna carry the great big lenses.

    I believe you are not crazy at all. My dream is to take pictures with a medium format camera, too. I have in the family album pictures taken with analog medium or big format cameras and the 3D feeling is just great! Of course, the money involved here are a big problem for everyone, but if you can afford it, I believe this is the ultimate dream for a photographer…

    P.S. Hope your father is well, again!!!
