Quote:4:3 was (and still is) also common in medium format, not only compacts. Imho, it often looks nicer for portrait oriented images.

But it's true that a 32x24mm sensor is not strictly speaking a "full frame" 35mm sensor.


I'm curious about the "digital rangefinder" instead of a mechanical one. Sadly, they don't give a lot of information about how it works...
 

Instead of mirrors and prisms, as most rangefinders do, they use twin imaging sensors that overlay their images to produce the same dual image effect in the viewfinder.  The first sensor is the main sensor, the second sensor is a small one where the black dot near the hand grip is.
I'm surprised Konost didn't spec an "old-school"  CCD for that "classic" CCD look.  :lol:

afaik they could even buy the KAF-18500 sensor used in the M9 - it's just not made by Kodak anymore.

I don't need references for guessing, but the 645Z uses the same sensor as Hassleblads so 4/3rds it is!

 

 As dated a design that the Konost is (and we've yet to see the performance of this sensor, if ever), I think a CCD sensor would have been like throwing a drowning man a lead lifebuoy!
