Limitations for beginners

Far fewer medium- and large-format cameras are made than 35 mm types. They are mainly aimed at professional photographers, and include single lens reflex and direct viewfinder types. Kits of this kind are expensive - with the exception of one or two basic twin lens reflexes intended for beginners. You must also remember that these cameras are bulkier to carry around, and mostly lack features such as built-in exposure meters and auto-focus common to smaller cameras. You will need more costly enlarging or scanning equipment too, able to accept the larger negatives.
