Who needs it!
33 or 39 is already problems with storage etc.

Also regarding full frame?

No cropping like the current "full frame" from Hasselblad?

Cheers,

Interesting but the news I wanted to hear from Phase was that they had a back for the Hy6!

Gotta love (and hate) rumours.

Good lord, how much is that going to cost (if it's true)?

$60,000?

An incremental increase in the size of the sensor is going to increase the price like crazy, no matter how many megapixels there are.  30, 40, 50, 60, 70, it doesn't matter.

On the bright side, the 36x48mm 33 and 39MP backs should decrease in price.  Yay...?

I think this is very plausible.

Hasselblad will call it "super-format" to distinguish it from "full format" and will get the tooling for the 645 finders out of storage  

On the other hand more and more Hasselblads are being used as location cameras, so I guess we might see a "super D3" version in due course, with high ISO, more DR, and less MP. Now that's a camera we'd all like.

Well the full size is very welcome news, but 60MP? A 30MP version would be just great.

30MP and usable 1600 ISO would be my vote.

Yeah, there's a whole list of things they should improve on before going for more megapixels imo. Personally I'd like to see higher and better iso and an lcd on par with the latest dslr. Also, faster capture rates and wireless transfer would be cool.

yeah, well at the moment a 645 fullframe Phase Mamiya with 60MP is an idea I find mildly entertaining given the abilities of the camera component and lenses. I know whereof i speak, I own a P45+. . A 54x54mm Rollei/Sinar/Leaf  or Alpa system I find totally believable on the other hand. I won't speak about Hassy, after all they already have "full-frame", right ?

How about LIVE PREVIEW? We really, really, really NEED live preview before we need 60 mp. I'm pissed. These MFDB manufacturers are ridiculous. We should start boycotting Phase One, Leaf, etc. until they give us what we want!

I don't know about you all, but I am going to hold out for the 150Mpx version, where 20 shots will fill your hard drive, and you'll need 48MB of RAM to open a file in photoshop, and 98 MB RAM if you intend to use layers. I'll buy two of those.

By the way, does anyone know what the average resolution of photo paper is? As in, how much actual data will stick to the page of say, a 16x24 print?

I didn't mean it in a critical way, am just curious. I can't think of a compelling need for this feature.

I would just be happy with a firmware upgrade from 1.5 to 1 seconds. Other than that speed boast not much else i need. Bigger LCD is always a nice feature but 60 mpx is not something I would buy. Rather buy a second back if anything than and actually a P21 plus with a higer ISO at say 1600 would pretty much throw my Nikons on the street.

I think most shooters would like to see Capture speed increase
Bigger and better LCD
Higher ISO's that perform well at 1600 and maybe more

I would think these three would be the most wanted features, with maybe a couple mores small things.

I would want a nicer screen and the capability to do MS without being tethered (not necessarily because I need it but it would be nice to have and I could use it).

Besides that I am pretty happy with what I currently have.

I could also use longer exposures, also just for fun.

60MP? I now already cannot process on my laptop without being forced to load up on coffee.
