Leaf Aptus 75 Digital Back vs. Phase One P45 Review

Reader Score: 6.12 (out of 10)
Field Report: "In June, 2006, two months prior to this report, I had an opportunity to test and shoot with an Aptus 75 back alongside my Phase One P45. My report was fairly comprehensive, though limited by the fact that I could not shoot with the same camera body and lens, so doing meaningful direct comparison's wasn't possible.

My conclusion was that both backs were capable of roughly similar image quality and that they differed primarily in their user interface and screen technology. Nevertheless, I really wanted an opportunity to shoot with both backs side by side, and to be able to conduct a few more thorough image comparisons.

Leaf was very accommodating to this request, and just prior to my participation in the Adobe Lightroom Iceland Adventure, loaned me an Aptus 75 for the trip. I have a spare Hasselblad H1 to work with, alongside my H2, and so I was able to have both backs on a body at all times, switching between my 35mm, 55-100mm and 210mm lenses.

shot for several days with both backs, though mostly with the P45, for reason's which I'll elaborate shortly. My plan was that on the last day of the trip, in Reykjavik, Bill Atkinson (my driving and shooting partner on this trip) and I would spend half a day running a full suite of comparison tests between the two backs. As luck would have it, this was not to be."
