Medium format historically refers to the 120 size film format that was used in the Hasselblad V System cameras. It was much larger than the standard 35mm format and offered a superior image quality thanks to the high quality lenses and the larger image area of the film. In digital photography, medium format refers either to cameras adapted from medium format film models or to cameras making use of sensors larger than that of a 35mm film frame. Medium-format roll film is still available from specialty shops and photo labs, yet nowhere near as ubiquitous as 135 (35mm) film. The 620 format was introduced by Kodak in 1931 as an intended alternative to 120. The 620 format is essentially the same film on a thinner and narrower all-metal spool.


Large Format (4 x 5," 5 x 7," 8 x 10," etc.)
Medium Format (120, 220, 2-1/4," 6x6, 645, 6x7, 6x9, etc.)


120 film is a film format for still photography introduced by Kodak for its Brownie No. 2 in 1901, and is still very popular, as the surviving medium format. Its specifications are defined by ISO 732. The 120 film format is a roll film which is nominally 60 mm wide (in fact, about 61 mm, or 2.4 inches).
