I'm toying with the idea of moving into MF for my equine portrait work, and finding it a little bewildering, and with little time on my hands to do masses of research. So hoping you guys can offer a bit of advice, even if its just to point in which direction to look further.
My current work flow is Nikon F/F with 85mm lens, and Profoto lights, its my standard set up, but I also sometimes have to work totally outside in the summer, so overpowering the sun is a must, and I understand I can get faster flash sync with MF too.
So a couple of questions please, do all MF cameras have the same fast flash sync 1/800th? and do the frames per second vary considerably between makes/models? )I don't need loads of frames per sec, but often its the split second after the first shot, that the horse poses as I want! and I don't want to be waiting 2 or 3 secs for the buffer to catch up.
I'm currently looking at a Hassy H5d-40, (loads cheaper than the 50c) or a Phase one with an IQ260 refurb.
Any thoughts much appreciated, thanks in advance.
