Medium Frame Nikon MX News round up: Rangefinder? For Weddings? Just show it Dammit!!

Just so no one thinks I am going to stop this blog I am posting some links to some rumours about a new Nikon medium format camera pitched to the “wedding” photographer.  Then I have an HDR photo post with details on what was used to make it.

You know I’d like to see some good wedding photography or at least some that shows you something that only a really high end camera can deliver.

Personally I know I could use any camera to it’s fullest capabilities but does anyone else even try. I guess it doesn’t matter when the techno lust kicks in I remember when I was just out of highschool and I would read road and track and car and driver and even the classier Automobile magazine all because I wanted to learn about the really top end cars that I would never buy.  Why was that?  Well the really cool thing about photography is that the costs of really good sensors keep falling so one days dream is another days reality. But will you be able to use the extra capability?
