The little camera on the left is my Pentax Q, the "smallest interchangeable lens mirrorless camera in the world". It takes good pics, I've posted a few of them on these boards. The big bomber on the right is my recently purchased Fuji GW690, a 6 x 9 cm medium format film camera.

To give an idea of how big the negatives on the GW690 are, I included a 35mm slide to give a point of reference to "full frame" sensors. I get 8 frames(!) out of a roll of 120 film. All of which got me thinking.

Unfortunately, the Pentax Q does NOT fit inside the back of a GW690. My dreams of using it as a digital back have been dashed.

But, how are the pictures from the GW690, you ask?

I wimp out and send the film off to The Darkroom. They send me back a cd, along with the negatives and some prints. It's expensive, but worth it.

No not bad at all...but, it depends on the films you use, no?
I wonder if the lab sharpened this photo or the lens is natively sharp?
Everything I read online about this camera said that the lens is very sharp. But yeah, I was using Fuji Velvia 50 here, other films may have grain for instance.

It’s actually not that expensive if they send you some prints too. I use Indie Film Lab To develop mine, they send back the negatives and upload digital/scanned versions on the net. You should check them out.
