  • The smart 12 year old who doesn't accept hyperbole as facts?
  • How do you know how many female photographers are on this forum and how do you measure the levels of realisation in other people? How will you prove this? How do you know this and how many are we ...
  • I personally love old Super Takumars, they usually have excellent bokeh rendering and nice warm colour. Many have Thorium coated elements which probably assists in this character. Take no heed of ...
  • This topic is a perennial regular, just like raw vs jpeg. Shallow dof is just another tool in a photographers toolbox, it's been around since the early days of photography and will always be with ...
  • Film has moved on.
  • Well what's relevant isn't for you to decide is it, unless you're a moderator, and I'm pretty sure you're not. Threads always deviate and meander into broader topics, try to get over it.
  • The general consensus is that the resolution for 35mm film is between 12 and 24mp, not 6-8mp, so I'm not sure what your point is.
  • The bottom line is that film shooters generally don't shoot film for resolution purposes, they shoot it for a number of reasons, the main one being that it has its own look. Whether you prefer it ...
  • It's a very punchy film, can be tricky, has a magenta cast to it at times but that depends on the light. Portra 160 is phenomenal for highlights, that's a film I use for people, probably my ...
  • Well the newer emulsions tend to have tighter grain, Ektar is virtually on a par with slide film it's that sharp, it's like shooting a combination of the sharpness and colour of slide film with ...
  • No probs. New emulsions are being released pretty regularly now. I'm looking forward to trying the new Kodak Ektachrome, people are raving about it. No probs, I thought it was a pretty interesting ...
  • Replied in Says Who
    I saw that comparison and the result was the opposite to what you claim and dynamic range wasn't even mentioned, the shot was of a male model in suit.
  • I never said it was, but then it depends on the size, 4x5 and 8x10 will be more than that, even 6x9. Film is only limited by the ability to scan it, considering you can create sheets to pretty much ...
  • That's simply not true, most emulsions have had to be changed due to the chemicals now being banned or considered environmentally unsound. Some haven't changed much, and plenty of people like the ...
  • I'll take some evidence rather than your opinion.
  • It depends on the film, low ISO black and white films such as Ilford Pan F have very tight grain, and with colour, modern Ektar also has very tight grain, not to mention positive film such as ...
  • I'm not sure who told you that but they're completely wrong, it's the other way around in my experience, and I have the SD Quattro and all 3 Merrills. The exception would be shooting at ISO 400 in ...
  • You said you don't tell anyone to do anything, whilst doing the exact opposite, there is no ambiguity with "Like I've told dozens of others..." You seem to specialise in telling everyone else what ...
  • No, a camera is instant, you press the shutter and it fires and captures the image, if you need me to spell out the difference between that and a drawing or painting then you probably shouldn't be ...
  • It's a good idea, and why not? I'm glad to see people experimenting and having a bit of fun, it beats the usual "Camera x is better than camera y" borefest. I like your first shot in particular, ...
