Writing here for MediumFormat.com offers a different venue than my usual reviews and how-to approach. In the coming months I will discuss how to achieve peak image quality on medium format, because the 35mm format is already nipping at the heels of medium format—a perfectly executed shot with 35mm can easily compete with a medium format image in which mistakes were made. I also intend to discuss choosing a medium format system and when and where to skip medium format and choose another solution.
My general approach to everything I do is to ignore assumptions and instead ask “why?” and “how?”, and that will be my approach in my articles. The medium format market is growing, so it is worth justifying when and why medium format makes sense, easing readers along the path of deciding for or against medium format, and then how to make best use of it.
