Since I was so "fixated" on using the larger Fuji sensor camera for the Vertex method, in order to emulate a 65x65mm sensor - i see photography with its normal sensor of 33x44mm, like a bonus. And it is a delight to see the quality from a large, 51 MP sensor - i gladly admit that.

It plays at both higher level - and it is more demanding !


Fullframe sensors are very good today !

While at the same time - fullframe sensors are really so good today, that the end product (the photo) can be used for basically anything and everything. One does not need a larger sensor like the Fuji GFX in order to make good photography !

My published Diary images do not really show much difference in the end, whether I use a Micro Four Third sensor (13x18 mm), a fullframe sensor (24x36mm) or a GFX sensor (33x44mm), or the crazy large 65x65mm "sensor" with the Rotating Vertex Method + Pentax 6x7 lenses.


Much more demanding level

Also true is, that once you use a larger senor - everything is more sensitive for errors ! You would be surprised... The demand of good shooting discipline is raised considerably, in order to achieve the higher quality you get from such a large sensor and/or high megapixel count. It increases the level of preciseness one has to adhere to considerably.

In that regard, a 20 MP fullframe camera is far more flexible, and to some degree, also has a little bit margins for errors and "cheating" or "sloppiness".

But doing the same with a larger sensor camera - is a no go. Or call it waste, because you do not need a larger sensor camera, if you shoot/work sloppy.


Main photo

Was taken in very low light, at aperture ƒ7.1 with an exposure time of 20 seconds at ISO 100 made with the Sigma 105mm f 1.4 ART lens.
