None of the LF or MF one-shot backs comes anywhere close to film quality.
The latest PhaseOne H20 back for MF yields 4080x4080 pixels, or less than
one-fourth of a medium-resolution scan of film in the same format.

I'll believe it when we arrive.  If it were that easy, we would have been
there long ago, at about the same time that CCDs replaced vacuum tubes in
video cameras.


Anthony,

With all due respect, you are wrong for once...

The newest LF digital backs are 12000 x 15990 pixels producing a file of
1.1GB in 48bit. It is the Better Light Super 8K-2 digital back. Its smaller
sibling, the Super 6K-2 produces 9000 x 12000 pixels. Furthermore, they go
from ISO 200-3200 in 1/10th of f-stop increments. Quite impressive!

Phase One has the PowerPhase FX which gives you 10500 x 12.600 pixels,
albeit only in 24bit - a file of 380mb.

That said, they don't come cheap, but that was not the issue... :-)
