    H1 + Imacon 123 is it still worth it?

    I'm currently shooting with a Mark IV but have recently been intrigued by Digital Medium Format as 95% of my photography is studio and fashion work.

    There's a H1 + 22mp Imacon back set up for sale locally and I'm just curious if I'm wasting my time buying older tech.

    Thanks,
    Luke

    The 132 still produces nicer images than any of the recent 35mm DSLR. Not at high iso but at 50 and 100 iso, it can not be beaten.

    Thanks for the response, pretty much exactly what I was looking for. I rarely use past ISO 100.

    There will be a lot of people coming to say a DSLR is way better..... but test it yourself. I have done mine, even the old leaf CantareXY against the D3x and the D3x failed on everything except for resolution. The 22Mp sensors are great and still perfect to use. The exceptional times when Moire occurs, one can use Phocus to eliminate that.
