Medium Format Love

In Film, Photography on May 8, 2012 by eongxien Tagged: , , , ,

Thrilled that I got my second medium format camera – the Mamiya 645e. Not the best camera in its class but since it was available for a good deal, I took a chance with it.

One significant advantage of shooting in medium format – as opposed to regular 35mm film – is that due to its larger size, images are sharper and crispier. Manual focusing is also easier with a larger mirror, however I confess I still took a number of out-of-focus shots so far. There’s only so much depth of field you can muster from a 80mm lens at full aperture.

The shots in this post were taken with the Portra 400 that came with the camera, including the black and white that was converted digitally in Lightroom. Enjoy!
