Enough words. Let pictures speak !
One of the probably best applications for this kind of camera is architecture photography. Please find here a small selection of some work of mine, using the possibilities of a Monorail View camera like the Sinar:
Another fascinating field is macro photography. The following sample images were taken with the Digital Sinar Setup, described above and the Schneider-Kreuznach Super-Angulon 90mm lens.
What might that be ? Well this detail of …. we will see later … is a 100 percent crop of the full size image, at 300 dpi.
Zooming out, we start seeing what we have in front of the lens …
Now it’s clear ! We are looking at the backside of a 2,5inch hard drive. The next image shows the fullscale photograph, which has a size of 11300 x 6600 pixel. This results in a print size of 96 x 55 cm at 300 dpi, or 192 x 111 cm at 150 dpi which would be more than sufficient for a print size like that.
This image was photo merged out of 25 RAW files using Photoshop CS3 (1,17 GB file size).
Most often I use the large format for Cityscapes:
The incredible amount of detail one can extract from such an image is nicely visible looking at the next image – a crop at natural resolution of the famous dome of the Reichstag.
Please click to see the full resolution. The full image, showing the Reichstag, the American consulate and the Holocaust Memorial in front has 9870 x 5872 pixel (equal to an 60 MB image).
