I've been running the Phase One P65+ through some tests to see how it improves over the P45. The first and most obvious is it's 60megapixels. 39 megapixel for the p45. The 60 megapixel translates into a 173 MB (8-bit) TIFF file. That's up from the 112 MB file the P45 produced.
When shooting products it's important to be able to pull out all the fine details of thematerialused to construct the product. The example below of the MacBook Pro shows how well the detail holds up in the metal and the shift key. The added megapixel will contribute to sharper images and the ability to crop and still retain a large file size. Looks like I'll have to step up my dusting of the product before shooting, everything shows.
