Found this Forum, a vibrant, lively and hence useful one; Just joined and coming with a post for your advise and possible help:
From India, now till this weekend in USA, Atlanta.
Need to buy an art-copying MF system, budget and cost-effective, naturally pre-owned is only possibility.
Want to copy paintings of sizes about 4x3ft to 5x10 ft..... (Big sizes can be 2or3 tiles to stitch)
It will mostly dedicated to indoor copying alone, I got my 5DMark2.
1. On looking around i found a Mamiya based system is most economical (?)
2. i wonder why not a Mamiya ZD as a compact one. But is that 22 mp enough ?
There are many brands and configurations, confused too, since not much knowledge in MD and DB system configurations. Budget is not allowing a preferred high end 60/80 mp systems.
Ready to go and meet and possibly buy any source nearby Atlanta in these weekend itself.
Please share your knowledge in this, every drop will be valuable and thankful too...
