Why do you suppose MF cameras do better in low light than 35mm cameras, or 35mm cameras do better in low light than 110 cameras even when using the same type of film?

Medium Format film cameras "do better" in low light? This is news to me. I thought they just had higher resolution. Source?

Source?  Are you kidding?  You ever shot with different formats on film?  35mm was bad, but 110 was much worse!  2 1/4 x 2 1/4 (and other medium formats) was a good bit better.  Much less visible grain at the same ISO.
