Digital vs Film
I’ve been experimenting a bit with film of late, and thought I’d post some comparisons. Although I’ve shot on film years ago, it was always just on compact cameras which provided no real control over anything, and this is my first experience with manual film cameras (an SLR and a rangefinder). I quite like the experience, but find that at my skill level (beginner), digital is still the only format flexible enough to save my mistakes from looking really bad. Anyway, have a look at this comparison of three shots I took of the swimming pool at Tintagel, the boutique hotel down Rosmead Place in Cinnamon Gardens; the first is digital, the other two on film (the digital RAW image has been processed on Camera RAW and then on PS as a JPEG, while the film shots are scanned negatives that have had some contrast and exposure tweaked in PS):
Canon EOS 600D and EF-S 18-200mm lens at 18mm, 1/500, f/3.5, and ISO 100.
Yashica FX-3 Super 2000 and Kodak Tri-X 400 film, with a MC 35-70mm lens, at 35mm, 1/500, and f/3.5.
Leica M6 and Kodak Tri-X 400 film, with a Summicron 50mm f/2 lens, at 1/500 and f/2.
