How to Pack Your Photo Gear - Andrew Link Photography

DSLR vrs a Medium Format Digital Back: Why I bought a Hasselblad

I sold my Canon 5D Mark II and series of L lenses and am now the proud owner of a second hand Hasselblad H3DII-31 with roughly 7k actuations. Having spent personal time with the Hasselblad system now, I thought I’d do a small write up on why I made the full switch and ditched my DSLR.
