Sinar has announced a new medium format back that is capable of capturing 192MP images courtesy of a 48.8MP image sensor that measures 48mm x 36mm. The back acheives this via a multi-shot mode, described below.
The Sinarback eXact features multiple shooting modes, as per the table below…
As you can see, there are two XL modes where the back shoots with an effective 192 MP sensor. There’s the XL 4-shot mode, which provides 192 MP ‘single-shot quality’, however, there’s also the XL 16- shot mode, which samples real colours from the subject for each half-pixel step in both directions.
And it’s this method, which provides un-interpolated colour sampling for cleaner more accurate colours with greater contour sharpness unmatched by any other device.
Camera compatibilty includes the following models:
Sinar p3/p2/p/x view cameras, Sinar m, Sinar Hy6, Sinarcam 2; Contax 645 AF; Fuji GX 680 I, II, III; Hasselblad V, H1, H2; Mamiya RZ 67/Pro II, RB 67, 645 AFD, AFD II, 645 Super, Pro, Pro6008, 6008 Integral, 6008 Integral2, 6008 AF. Any non-Sinar 4×5“ view cameras via Graflock adapter
