The State of Medium Format in 2021. Is It Better Than Full Frame?

For more articles like this, be sure to please subscribe to The Phoblographer.

There have been times I’ve considered buying a medium format camera. Mostly, I’ve looked at the Fujifilm GFX series of cameras. But I’ve also really liked the old Leica S cameras with a CCD sensor. In 2021 though, the medium format camera world is very quiet. Phase One has some very high megapixel DSLRs that we hear nothing about. Hasselblad has some DSLRs and mirrorless cameras, but the latter misses the mark. Leica has a medium format camera system, but there isn’t much development for it. So the only viable possibilty is Fujifilm. What’s more, the company often says that it is their future.

But when it came to developing them, we were at the mercy of two significant factors: the film stock we used, and the developer at the lab we went to.

Maren Klemp Transports Us to a Strange and Beautiful World

“As a kid, I was very interested in the idea of parallel dimensions,” Maren Klemp tells me. “I often went to the library and spent hours searching for books in the mystery/paranormal section.
