To someone who has never used MF, this forum has been a wonderful source of inspiration and information. Thank you!
It is likely that this year I will make the switch to MF and have identified the Alpa TC as my preferred choice. I was first attracted to the Alpa when I saw a report from Guy Mancuso. Either he has huge hands or the Alpa TC is truly a perfectly sized travel camera
To say that I'm somewhat nervous about the prospect of a change is an understatement and I would therefore hugely appreciate some further advice.
My travels take me to interesting but primitive places. The nature of the work I'm involved in and need to document puts considerable stress on my camera gear which must tolerate dust, sometimes rain, dirt and rough travel conditions.
As background, I have used the Leica M8 but had reliability issues and therefore felt compelled to switch to the excellent Nikon D3S which ticks most boxes apart from size, weight and I'm also increasingly wishing for more resolution.
Having therefore identified the Alpa TC I have two main questions for those who have used this camera:
1. How robust and tolerant of rough travel is it?
2. I have yet to identify a suitable digital back. Daylight viewing clarity and robustness need to play a big part. I'm looking at something in the 20-30 MP range.
