Medium format used to be something that was reserved only for rental houses and a few lucky photographers, but in the last few years, we have seen some medium format options come down in price quite significantly, though they still sit at the upper end of the price spectrum. So, is it worth shelling out extra for that larger sensor? This interesting video compares a modern full frame and modern medium format camera to find out.
Coming to you from Alex Barrera, this helpful video compares the Fujifilm GFX 100S medium format mirrorless camera to the Canon EOS R6 full frame camera and discusses if medium format is worth the extra investment. No doubt, cameras like those in Fujifilm’s GFX series have made medium format more practical and affordable for a lot more photographers, but that being said, it is still more expensive than most full frame options, particularly when you add in the cost of lenses. A lot of it depends on the kind of work you do and how you are showcasing your images, and you might find that things like the faster burst rates in full frame cameras are a bigger benefit than the larger sensor. Check out the video above for Barrera’s full thoughts.
