I came across this great article last week over on Luminous-Landscape.com by Richard Sexton who walks through the many different cameras he’s used for architectural photography in his thirty year career and why his current workhorse camera is a Canon 5Dii (i’m assuming here that the article was written before the release of the mark iii). Richard has a pretty huge array of cameras to choose from including phase one digital backs, view cameras, and of course the humble DLSR. What I loved about his critique was that he wasn’t married to any one system. He highlights the pros and cons of each and appears to happily swap between gear based on what the shot needs. This is a refreshing approach as it seems that many discussions about medium format cameras and DSLRs quickly turns into a tribal war rather than a practical assessment of what each tool delivers. Well worth the read.
