MEDIUM FORMAT PENTAX – WORTH THE WEIGHT

Only about five percent of my images are shot on my medium format camera. It simply doesn’t have the speed I need for the majority of my work.

So, as you can imagine, I’m often questioning whether I even need to be carrying the extra weight of the camera, the lenses and a tripod – particularly when it comes to the big walks.

But then I shoot a landscape with it – like this waterfall in Victoria’s Indigo Shire (below) – and I recognise the value of those big 120 meg files. You may not see the quality in this optimised version but, I can assure you, the detail’s impressive …..which, sadly, leaves me little excuse not to lug it over hill and dale next time.
