Arrestingly real colours rendered in tangible detail: medium format lenses realise the extraordinary potential of medium format cameras. Built to meet the exacting standards and unforgiving demands of working professionals, digital medium format lenses combine the latest in optical technology and performance to deliver exceptional quality images for editorial, exhibition and advertising.
CameraPro stocks selected digital medium format cameras and lenses from market leaders such as Fujifilm and Pentax. If you’re interested in any digital medium format lenses that aren’t on our website, please get in touch as we may be able to source them for you.
An unprecedented level of research and development goes into designing medium format lenses to ensure their quality and performance. Outstanding sharpness and resolving power is the norm, while many models feature wide apertures to bring out the stunningly shallow depth of field made possible by a medium format sensor. Some medium format lenses employ leaf shutters enabling super-high shutter speeds and, as a result, ever greater control over exposure.
As the professional’s workhorse, a medium format lens is built to withstand the most relentless shooting schedule. Superior construction elements often include dust and weather resistance, and sometimes brass mounts for added durability
Then there’s the medium format aesthetic, distinct from anything achievable with a DSLR. The wider field of view (compared to smaller format cameras with the same focal length lens) afforded by the larger format sensor makes perspectives more natural. Landscapes, for example, can be captured with much less of the edge distortion associated with a wide angle lens, resulting in images that more closely resemble something seen with the naked eye.
Made specifically to produce the highest possible image quality, medium format camera systems are typically bigger, heavier and pricier than DSLR and other consumer camera systems. They’re therefore traditionally most suited to professionals working with consistent environments, well planned setups and stable platforms.
However, the latest digital medium format systems are more user-friendly than ever. Smaller, lighter cameras and lenses more comparable in size to those from DSLR systems are extending medium format’s appeal beyond the professional-only sphere to landscape, action, portrait, fashion and lifestyle enthusiasts.
Along with some of the best medium format lenses and cameras on the market, CameraPro also stocks an extensive range of professional quality photographic accessories, from tripods and lighting equipment to memory cards and paper.
All stocked products are covered by a full Australian manufacturer’s warranty, giving you confidence in your purchase.
