NEW Fujifilm Camera!
10 months ago

Just arriving back home after a 2 week trip to the USA, I added yet another Fujifilm camera to my family of 11.  Now with 12 Fujifilm cameras in-house, perhaps some will finally be convinced that I do not hate and despite all things Fujifilm.

I enjoy my GF670W so much that I added the sister camera (seen below on the left), the GF670 folder to the mix.  What a great camera, medium format quality that fits in a jacket pocket.

A **VERY** special thanks to Billy Inya!!  Without him, this simply would NEVER have been possible!!

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6

I use Lexar, its one type of media that you get more than the typical 4 images in this format.

For color I use Fuji 400H, except I was able to get another stash of Reala 100 ($12/roll, 25 rolls).

I also shoot some Provia 100F and have a stash of 400X (25 rolls, now discontinued).

For black and white, I use Acros 100 and Ilford HP5 and Delta 3200.

using film is very different both in the shooting and the final result, and whether or not the differences are appealing is a matter of taste. your question might as well be 'why do you like seafood?'.

6x7 allows for either 10 or 20 shots a roll.  Maybe you have some reading up to do before you try sarcasm again.

No, the question might be more like "Why do you prefer analog seafood over digital seafood, when 99.99% of all gourmets can't detect any taste or other sensory differences, analog seafood is so much more expensive per byte, and it's so much harder to find and prepare?"

Adding to that, if you go away on a scenic desert for a year that has AC power, you can carry a year's worth of digital seafood memories in a shirt pocket, but those analog digital memories will take ... Oh, I forgot. You have to process and masticate those analog seafood memories so very very slowly, one byte at a time, so you probably wouldn't need a truck to be able to remember those analog seafood meals.

Yes, you're right. In the end we submit mostly to our preferences. Graham's preferences, even though he probably really loves large film formats, is probably tainted a bit by a loathing not of Fuji digital cameras, but of the Fuji digital shooters that often unfairly insult and taunt him.

Does this mean that the "likes" to this response still use film or are you all just envious of an ancient technology.

Does not matter by the time you take 10 or 20 shots, focus, advance the film short of a fast moving landscape the moment has passed.

Still shooting Analog, why?

I love my xp1 but when you do a bit of research you realise that in some ways digital still hasn't matched film, especially if you shoot B&W. Can you show me a sensor that can be overexposed by 5 stops before it loses detail or alternatively a B&W film that only contains 256 shades of grey?

That's why I've recently started shooting 35mm Ilford FP4 again and loving it.

Newer isn't always better.....

Good answer. By the way, what is analog..?

I will never shoot with film anymore, however I do understand the appeal and the results you like so much.

It's like asking me why I listen music from my tube amplifier instead of solid state technology. I know why and with your medium format you do to.

Cheers

You must be retired and have time on your hands. If you are making these claims you must be processing and printing yourself, right... I would not trust a lab if you are so particular about your claims of controlling shades of grey.

Those 256 shades of gray are JPEG (8-bit) shades. Haven't you heard of 12-bit, 14-bit and 16-bit RAW files? They'd give you 4,096, 16,384 and 65,536 shades of gray.

That's why I've recently started shooting 35mm Ilford FP4 again and loving it.

I hope that your 35mm camera is able to prevent film curl and keep the FP4 really, really flat. It's really needed for high resolution fine grain film.
