What is Medium Format Camera?

Medium Format photography uses 120 film size (larger than 35mm film size). It uses a sensor that is bigger than the 35mm full-frame standard. It has better image quality when compared to the 35mm cameras. The other advantage of this camera is, the body parts are interchangeable unlike other single camera body. With the medium format systems, you can use different viewfinders, film and digital backs, focus systems, etc. Finally, the medium format cameras are used in fashion and advertising industry (Vogue magazine).
