Re: biggest


i wonder about people who switched over to digiital 12 years ago and gave up on film at that time.

those early digital cameras were not even in the same world as 120 or 4x5

they had poor colors, horid dynamic range, devoid of tone ect....

on the other hand 4x 5 was the stuff that masterpieces were made of

Actually one of the biggest problems back then was that the raw conversion software was not very good.

If you were to take any raw image from a camera back then and reprocess it today in Photoshop or Lightroom, you would be surprised at how much better it looks now.  And yes, sensors have improved dramatically too.
