Medium Format Photography

What is your tool of choice?

As with most photographers, my favorite tool depends on the project. I shoot the Phase One DF body with 40+ back, as well as Canon, and the Leica M.

How long have you been shooting medium format?

Believe it or not, I started with large format, an old Kodak 4×5 with a press lens. The Mamiya RZ was my first medium-format camera, and wow, that was a wonderful format to shoot film on. I’ve also shot the Contax 645, which I still regret selling. Now I’m working with the Phase One system, and it’s quite intuitive. The images obviously give you so much more information to work with due to the chip size, the resolution and the bit depth.
