comment What are Medium Format and Large Format cameras?
For a given enlargement size, prints made from a medium- or large format source will have finer grain, more detail, and richer tones than 35mm. If you blow up a 35mm frame of Tri-X to an 8x10 print, you get pretty obvious grain, and the tones will be kind of flat. A contact print of an 8x10 sheet of Tri-X will look completely different, with no visible grain, a high level of detail, and much better tonality. It will look more "real", for lack of a better term. Billboard-sized images will probably have been shot with a large-format camera.
