New Sinar Hy6 31-megapixel medium format

Sinar continues the medium format buzz that started with the trio of high-megapixel MFs (medium format!) with the new 31-megapixel Hy6 65. More details via the Imaging Insider.

We rarely talk about medium format, partially because the exponentially increasing waves of shiny silver clones are eating up our resources. It's hard to believe that in 2008 alone we had 170+ new digital cameras and that's from the major manufacturers, not counting the likes of BenQ, Vivitar, Praktika, Norcent, etc, etc, etc, along with cloned brands from the past, webcams, camera-phones, hybrid-camcorders, etc.

But fear not, after Photokina we will make adjustments and spend less time on the sub-$200 boring shiny-silver-clones that get re-announced every six months and more time on lenses and the medium format. We hope :)
