The reason for Canon not having a MF camera ....and didn't Hasselblad steal the design from them though...is that they'd have been laughed out of court.

canon made 35mm...people knew this, they bought this...they were allowed to make 35mm because the big guys were using MF and LF and the little people using 35mm could be happy with their Nikon's and canon's et al.

But now....it's all changed and top of the rooster shed roof is Canon and now there's a whole load of new users who just might come into the game with a digital MF canon....plus of course canon have made some intersting purchases as a company in the last couple of years.

IŽd like to make a point that applies to my own take on viewing HDR images.
I notice that when we look at a highly contrasted scene, our brains/eyes can see a lot more detail in the overly dark as well as the overly bright areas, more than your average digital camera (even a pro camera like the 1ds mk2).

Yet when I look at an HDR image it no longer looks right, it seems that the software is also confusing black for dark, and lightening it. You need some dark areas to make it look natural. Its hard to decribe but thats how I see it.

Looking at the boat image it looks all wrong to me, there doesnŽt seem to be any real shade you need shade no matter how much dynamic range there is.

I prefer manually selecting the dark or bright areas using a large diffuse brush in photoshop. I donŽt know if software is ever going to get it right (iŽd imagine so) but maybe the hardware of the new supercam (1ds mk3) will provide enough dynamic range combined with resolution to make it all look natural, without burning out etc.
