Digital Camera Types Explained – Medium format, Rangefinders, and more
In this final part on the different types of digital camera that are available, I'll cover Medium format, Rangefinders, and Scanning backs. These tend to be quite niche products, as well as being expensive, so I'll only cover them quite briefly. And although they're not digital, I also wanted to add a note on film cameras, which is at the bottom of this article.
Medium format digital cameras
Medium format digital cameras are similar to DSLRs, except they use much larger sized sensors (and lenses). Thanks to the large sensors, medium format cameras are capable of very high resolution images, with a large dynamic range as well.
