The Joy Of Analog Photography And Medium Format

In this article, I want to talk about the joy of analog photography and medium format.

The term “analog” is a bit misleading because digital photography also falls under that category. However, many photographers still use film for their work and there are some benefits to it! In this article, we’ll take a closer look at analog photography and medium format cameras.

One of the main benefits of using a medium format camera is that the resulting images are usually much bigger and sharper than those taken with a 35 mm camera. This is because is about 4 times bigger than the surface of the 35mm film format, the medium format can be enlarged significantly without losing quality and allows for more detail to be captured in each photo. In addition, since the medium format is considered to be the “gold standard” in professional photography, you can expect that your images will look amazing!

Another benefit of the medium format camera is that it will allow you to get closer to your subject more easily. This makes them great for photographing products, people, weddings, landscapes, and more! While they are not nearly as portable or small as 35mm, these cameras still have their place in today’s market. They can often be found in professional studio settings and are most often used for commercial photography.

So, if you want to take the next step in your photography career or simply want a great camera that can stand up against some of today’s modern tech, consider investing in a medium format camera! They may not be cheap but they’ll last a lifetime and will always produce high-quality images.

In conclusion, there are many benefits to using medium format on analog photography gear! If you’re looking for sharper images with more detail, or simply want to experiment with a new format, then the medium format is the way to go. Thanks for reading!
