    It looks nothing like the blur of a large aperture lens. To most of course they want to eliminate noise it's ugly.  Grain is pleasing and that is why the same software that eliminates noise also ...
  • And noise in digital is ugly and I only see the grain in film which is pleasing.  Of course it is subjective
  • Replied in Seriously?
    Apparently you didn't figure it out then.  Film looks outstanding.  Once again it is subjective so you are entitled to your opinion and yes it is an art.  Art is a form of expression and if you ...
  • Now you are just playing semantics

    Non of that matters.  It's the final result and the way it impacts the viewer that matters.  Don't get lost in engineering since it's an art

  • Well the ones worth archiving.........
  • Well that is a statement to the content and quality  of the photos not to the inherent value of a photograph beyond it's creator.
  • Short answer.......yes film will last longer.
