    How good is Phase One? When you look at the EXIF on Nikon's photos of their cameras, Nikon shoots its own product photos with Phase One backs! Clearly, Nikon doesn't chance the quality of its product photos by shooting them with consumer-grade cameras like its own D3X.

    This is very well documented at kenrockwell.com. Anyway for professional product brochures... the norm is to use medium format for optimum resolution and quality. DSLRs good for hobbyists to carry around orchard rd take street shots! hehehe on the other hand you can use those medium format cameras for street shots, there's nothing stopping you if you can afford them, but diff cameras are meant for diff purposes lah

    I think most ANY camera manufacturers in the big league will INSIST on at least medium format, or even large format. It's all about maximum quality. It has nothing to do with trust or chance. It's all about industry standards.

    Nonsense.

    Use the proper tool for the proper job.

    Try shooting fast moving low light events with medium or large format?

    yeah, the water purifying companies also don't ask you to use their staff's pee for their products.

    Don't feed the Ken Rockwell fanboi troll folks. He's posted several topics in his confrontational style including one where I gather he largely copied and pasted without acknowledging originally that the words weren't his own until caught.

    He's clearly just trying to stir up muck.

    No lah, my reply was for the thread starter lah.

    Large format is bad choice for low light, fast moving situations, so its SLR for such jobs. Commercial photography often have to print big so its medium and large format for such jobs.

    Thread starter is making unfair comparison and IMHO, trying to stir ****.

    Yeah. Canon uses Hasselblad for their compact camera commercials too. So? Everyone should sell their Ixus and their Car/Apartment for a Hassy?
