Is it worth it to put my Bronica ETR up sale for a Cannon DSLR ?
what kind of work do you do?
that makes the biggest difference i think.
also, are you willing to sell it to me?
You're gonna need more money. Try not to weep when you find out what you can get for the Bronica.
Sorry. I've been there too.
Yep. Think about the quality of your Bronica set-up, and then look at what you'll get for it now. I'd keep it even if you do decide to buy into a dSLR system. Even if you have a number of Bronica lenses and accessories you probably wouldn't be able to raise the funds for a digital Rebel, much less any quality glass, so to me it doesn't seem worth letting a system like that go.
What would it cost you for a Jobo Developer and a good Film scanner?
I have a Hasselblad with a couple of lenses and a Mamiya 6.45 system. But the most complete system I have is the Mamiya RB... 2 bodies, 5 backs, 5 lenses (including the 150mm soft), prism finder, bellows lens hood, etc. I was offered $300 for the RB system.
I'll give you $350 and pay shipping
Do I get kissed first?
Think about what you’re shooting or want too, what workflow do you enjoy, computer and software upgrades, is this for personal or professional uses
As for quality IMO most DSLR are already sharper that 35mm film, and I have read several reviews on the Canon 5D that say it competes well with MF
I have a 5D. I haven't bought a roll of film in more than 3 years. I'm doing better work with the Canon.
christie do you have any of those film bodies and lenses etc anymore?
pm me if you do, or if anyone reading this does, i'm in the market for a used medium format.
There is a comparison between the 5D and drum scanned 6x4.5 Velvia here (also 1Ds MkII, and assorted medium format backs)
To my eye the Velvia is sharper than the 5D by half of a hair, but you'd never spot the difference in a print, and with a scan of lesser quality the 5D would win hands down. Some of those digital medium format backs are clearly beating 4x5 Velvia. Of course, with those prices for digital backs, I'll be sticking with 4x5 film for quite a while longer.
