    Looks like a Cambo Wide DS. Pretty cool for architectural or handheld LF shooting - best suited for very wide lenses... see www.cambo.com

    Boy, and they say that Leicas are expensive! I mean, $1500 for the compact body is OK, but then you have to add the MF digital back and then the lens, and the price skyrockets to somewhere around $30k. Pretty outrageous for a point-and-shoot (technically a scale focused rangefinder.) Looks pretty slick though.

    I can see this as an add-on to someone who already has invested in a digital back (or has inherited one from an eccentric uncle).

    Interesting thing is that at a Gallery show about a year ago, the shot he is shown taking in the video clip, was the "show stopper".
    A 30x40" print that was head and shoulders above everything else on display. No mention of what gear was used for that shot (or any of the others, to be fair), however the showing was sponsored by Canon !!

    I found the gear information by reviewing other articles on his site, however I would think many people believed that the medium format quality print, was made by a Canon body and lens.

    Full disclosure would help.
