Choosing Medium Format Film Cameras

Medium format film cameras make use of the 120 film size. This film format captures images that are larger than 35mm film and smaller than 102 x 127mm film used by large format cameras. There isn't a standard film size for medium format cameras, as it varies depending on the manufacturer. To choose the right medium film camera, you need to know the types and features that are suitable to you.


Medium Format Types

Medium format digital cameras come in multiple types. Single-lens reflex, also referred to as SLR cameras, feature a box-shaped body and a waist-level finder, which makes them ideal for close-up and telephoto photography. Twin-lens reflex, or TLR, cameras come with two lenses to help you view the images when shooting. They're affordable and suitable for taking candid photos. Rangefinder cameras feature a special focusing feature that automatically measures the distance between you and the subject, for sharp photos. Medium format panoramic film cameras fully use the film frame for more detailed and fuller images.


How to Choose the Right Medium Format Camera

Cameras with large sensors offer bigger megapixels for higher quality images. You also get a wider field of view. Whether you're using view cameras or instant film cameras, these medium format cameras offer more versatility of images because they use different aspect ratios and frame sizes.

Also, consider the kind of lighting you'll be using for your photography. Constant and flash lighting are your major options available, and they'll determine whether you should buy a camera with a leaf shutter or one with a focal plane shutter. Also, think about whether you'll need a tripod or you'll shoot with your hands. If you'll hold the camera, shop for a lighter model.
