So am really confused and am hoping that someone here may be able to explain to me the difference in bit depth between various cameras/formats.
If I have posted this in the wrong section, please feel free to move it to the appropriate one
Here goes... I currently have a Sony A7R and a motley crew of lenses to go with it.. This includes a Canon 24mm TS-E II that I have often used for stitching and have been quite happy with the results.. Resolution wise, once I am looking at a stitched file, it is quite impressive. Many people argue that the resolution of the Sony A7R alone is worthy of mural sized prints..
There are a couple of other options that I have seen for use with the Sony A7R that dramatically increase resolution and that is the Fotodiox Rhinocam
and the Hcam Master by Stefan Steib
Final version: HCam Master TS 14-24mm
So recently I have seen work by a couple of photographers that I know are using Medium Format Digital and they really have a "look" that is hard to describe.. This goes beyond pure resolution..
The photographers are below;
Ian Allen Photography
and Magnum Photographer Donovan Wylie
Postcards From America
If you click on either, you should be able to get an enlarged version of the image..
I do remember seeing a link that showed that Donovan Wylie was shooting on a Hasselblad H5D-60 on a 80mm lens..
Cannot seem to find it anymore unfortunately. Am not sure what Ian Allen is shooting on.
So I guess my question relates to color and overall look (CMOS vs CCD) rather than just pure resolution (although this is also a part).
I feel like most people describe the difference between 14 bit (Nikon D810) and 16 Bit (MFDB) it is largely to do with color, whereas when people describe the difference between true 14 bit and Sony's 11 + 7 compressed file, it is more to do with recovering shadows as well as artifacts that occur when doing heavier post processing.. Is there less of a jump bettwen "true" 14 bit and Sony's 11 + 7 Compressed file?
I realize that there may be a lot more going on here with post processing but I would be very grateful to hear any input that you guys have with regards to this..
Thanks a lot!
