The Different Medium Types by photo-class The Different Medium Types by photo-class
Hi all,

An article written by ~suntech, reviewed and layed out by the ~photo-class team, aiming at an introduction to the different available camera and film types...

Brief:

Most of us are either used to consumer-range digital cameras or to standard 35mm analogue cameras. However, many other types of supports and cameras exist and are used daily by profesionals.

Letís have a peek at the most common ones.


Please leave us comments if you found this useful or if you have any suggestion.

I cannot view the bigger picture, nor can I download it. I think it needs to be re-uploaded. I just keep getting an error that says "file not found". :\

I also think this page should be updated a little. the prices are way off, and we are up to 39mp with the H3D 39 that came out. it goes for around :wow: $35,000, not bad with the current exchange rates. (not that i'm going to get one, or can afford one :p :D

i agree with :iconevariste:, vintage cameras kick a**. we shouldn't stop using them, just like the vintage audio equipment, now priceless, vintage cameras will gain appeal again. i have a 70's pentax k2, that i picked up from my gramps and a 70's model of the k1000 not the re-release from the nineties, that i learned on, and i found a mamiya 645 in an old dusty box of junk. i haven't gotten the mam to work yet, the shutter sticks. it has double exposure feature too, i never heard of that until i saw this camera.

Quite a useful read.
I myself have an affinity for vintage cameras, and am starting to learn to handle a few of the ones I have acquired.

While digital is certainly the way to go in the modern world, especially if photography is your professional career plan, I would recommend to any hobbyist/experimenter, hardcore or not, to try and get their hands on the old-timey stuff and see what they can crank out.

a image size of 500Mb !!! wtf! my 400D makes images around 10-20 mb in RAW... and thats 10mpx ;P and for "proffesional use" it's wise to have a camera that take images that have a size of at least 32 mb.. (full format CCD) like the markI etc .. so 500mbs would enable you to print out an image at the size of a jumbojet hehe .. nice!

Nice tut!

Cheers from *mangatobbey

Film dimensions are 36x24mm, not 35x22mm.
