The future prevalence of technical cameras in the architectural arena depends on this competition from full-frame devices that, by comparison, are relatively affordable yet still deliver great image quality. For the large-format class to establish a firm foothold, the development of affordable digital backs with large medium-format sensors, higher resolution, a very large dynamic range, and better image quality at high ISO values is needed. Another helpful development would be new lenses—especially in the wide-angle range—designed specifically for digital sensors that allow for significant adjustment without vignetting or color shifts.

The large size of the subject, the wide angles of view, and the relatively large subject distances mean that selective focus doesn’t play a significant role in our considerations. Especially when shooting for documentary purposes, architectural photographers need to be sure that the entire subject is captured in sharp detail. For this reason, we often shoot with the lens stopped right down—a technique that also reduces vignetting effects, chromatic aberration (color fringing), and softness at the edges of the frame.
