Camera Types

Medium format cameras come in a wide variety of styles. Most are satisfactory for many different jobs, but some are better suited for certain applications than others. Your selection of a camera, therefore, must be based first on the subject matter or the photographs you plan to take. Then you can make a final choice of camera by investigating and determining how important the following features are for your application:

• shape of the camera;

• size, weight, and portability;

• type of viewing;

• degree of electronics and automation;

• component interchangeability;

• shutter;

• special camera features;

• availability of lenses and accessories; and

• quality and workmanship.
