Phase One H25 and 4×5 film

This test, conducted in 2005 sought to help photographers decide if they could replace their 4×5 film workflow with a 22 megapixel Phase One H25 digital back and maintain quality. This test takes on a different context now that Phase One has released a 39 megapixel digital back (the P45 and P45+) and perfected noise response, long exposure, high ISO, and capture speed.

Camera body was a Linholf Technikarden view camera.
