The Difference in 35mm vs Medium Format

So, in my exploration of 35mm versus medium format film photography, I initially had some misconceptions. I used a Pentax 67 and Canon EOS1n with specific lenses to compare aspects like grain, image quality, and depth of field. While medium format had advantages in terms of sharpness and quality, I acknowledged that achieving a similar depth of field on 35mm was possible with a fast lens, though not without challenges. I discussed tangible factors like cost and camera types, emphasizing that affordable medium format options exist. In the end, I expressed a personal preference for medium format but acknowledged the subjective nature of the choice between the two formats. I concluded with a light-hearted suggestion for readers to explore both options and choose based on their individual preferences in film photography..
