System Cameras

A large number of medium format professional cameras are "system cameras", meaning they have a variety interchangeable components. Somewhat similar in flexibility to a majority of 35 mm SLRs, these medium format cameras generally accept different lenses, and additionaly it is somewhat normal for medium-format camera systems to corroborate with different winding mechanisms, viewfinders, camera backs and viewfinders. This adaptability is one of the foremost benefits of medium format in photography. Updated Review  Dec 18, 2010

Digital Medium Format

With the advancement of digital camera backs,, digital photography came kicking and screaming into the medium format world. Digital backs can be attached to many system cameras and fitted with electronic sensors, successfully creating a digital camera from a film camera. These digital backs are mostly used by professional photographers. Similar to film, allowing for the expanded imaging chip size (as much as double that of a 35 mm film size), and as great as 40 times greater than a typical compact digital camera chip, they provide more pixels with much lower noise. Attributes such as cooling fans also greatly improve the studio model image quality.
