Another popular camera for wedding photography is the medium format camera. This format is smaller (2.25" x 2.25") than 4 x 5, but still produces a relatively large negative. Medium format cameras also have a wide variety of great lenses available. Only within the past few years has medium format begun losing ground to 35mm and digital for wedding photography, but the format is still widely used.

The advantage of medium format is high resolution. Its 2.25" x 2.25" negative size is roughly three times larger than 35 mm negatives, and images up to 30" x 40" can be made without loss of detail. Some professionals believe that the medium format creates much sharper and clearer photographs than 35mm, even when it comes to small images. Medium format cameras use 12 or 22 exposure rolls of film. Reloading takes only a few minutes, depending on the camera model and the photographer's skills.   While medium format cameras can be used for photojournalism-style wedding photography with excellent results, 35mm or digital equipment is now preferred by most wedding photographers.
