Re: filmscanners: film vs. digital cameras - wedding/commercial photography





There are a number of traditional reasons why MF films have been used in
wedding and portrait photography.  In the not so distant past, a lot of
touch up work was done directly on the negs, and MF allowed for this
more simply.

Further the usually square format allowed for variable cropping, and
traditional sizes (like 8 x 10" and 11 x 14" can often be produced
without cropping on the long dimension.  35mm frames require cropping in
the long dimension to fit these standard dimensions further decreasing
resolution.
