I'm trying to understand why the company I work got a medium format Phase One camera to take photos for their website. The person who ordered it has left, so we don't know their reasoning, but I assume they equated a higher price with better quality product (we have two $50K studios)
Is the camera really worth it for us? The images only go onto the web. Iunderstand the difference in pixels, and I see it has a bigger sensor, but in reality why is it worth it?
I don't see that the quality is so much better than the images from my new Canon Rebel (the pictures are sharper but I attribute that to the $15k lens as opposed to my $200 lens)
Basically, is it worth using a medium format camera for images that are only posted online?
Is the resolution that much better?
Note: I did see the question What benefit does Hasselblad have vs high-end Canon / Nikon? but I still don't understand why someone would get such a camera to post pictures online (I could use an iPhone for that) and in general the question also talks a lot specifically about Hasselblad being what it is (brand, price, etc)
