Medium Format

Introduction:

Medium format photography utilises 110mm film that is larger that that of 35mm standard photography, yet slightly smaller than large format 5″x 4″ film. Due to the increase film size a higher level of detail can be captured. Prominent manufacturers of medium format camera’s are Hasselblad and Seagul. The latter of which, I have utilised in this shoot the use of the Seagul large format camera.

 

For the purpose of this study the following question(s) were addressed:

  1. Will medium format film produce higher quality images than standard 35mm film?

 

Hypothesis:

35mm film requires greater enlargement, resulting in more grain. 120mm film requires less enlargement so therefore less grain is visible resulting in medium format producing higher quality images.

 

Methodology:

 

 

 

 

Conclusion:

I have found this process relatively simple to execute, due to its similarities in developing 35mm film. I have found that it does produce a higher quality image than standard 35mm film and have found the images I took in this format very impressive in their detail and colour reproduction.
