    They are rationalising production. Film photography will obviously never get back to what it was and doesn't need to.  But hopefully it will continue and I intend to do my best to help. Why? ...
  • Leonard, I do respect your experience and opinion. I have, since posting vigorously in 2017 as a new member of DRP about digital things, bought some vintage Nikon film cameras. I really enjoy ...
  • Nikon F100, closest to the F5 in capability.

    Nikon F801S, prosumer camera just under the pro Nikon F4 for capability

    Nikon F60 much maligned consumer camera that reliably creates clear, crisp...

  • It's the result that counts. I have seen some rather fake digital images too. There's no point in my continuing this line. You are all slaves to the digital world.
  • It's your decision based on your experience; which has been formed from your application to film. It's then an opinion formed from your experience. Mine so far is different, formed from a ...
  • Wow Easyrider, Who got stressed? I am trying to get a reasoned discussion about the use of film. Inasmuch as I use both film and digital I think my approach is more level than yours. I use either ...
  • Well done! My “inflammatory” post annoyed you like yours annoyed me. I don’t get your point however about chemical vs digital processing. Your first post mentioned chemical process being the ...
  • Well I suppose I have lower expectations but I am quite satisfied with the results I achieve. I suppose also your digital cameras are medium format for the same reasons you give for slagging 35mm. ...

    I am trying it after 20 years. Others are too. Enough to encourage Kodak to start manufacturing color slide film again. I suppose they have a better handle on these things than either you or I. A ...
  • MarkB, Your comments on the high ISO of the first digital images are correct. I think I must have had high ISO from another shoot that was in very low light and did not check before using the ...
  • Blanche Dovine, Yes to the first question and no to the 2nd. You pay $3.99 for negatives only and digitally process them yourself. Your camera body costs you $15-$50 and a good vintage lens around ...
  • I know they are way overexposed. My point being; with the film camera I did not need to check. It could not rush to high ISO levels because it was fixed by the film and I do not try to push film. ...

    So who did you check with?  I can tell you it is making a comeback with me. I can see from your byline that you are not accustomed to seeing the evidence although it is in front of you daily. If ...
  • bullet1, For $450 you can buy a heck of a lot of vintage film SLRs and lenses and a digitizer and have some left over for film and development. I have a hunch that the MP capacity of digitizers ...
  • JDevlin2, Yes I agree with regards the freedom that digital brings. I use it most of the time especially when I need a quick result. I am leaving the USA shortly and returning home to Australia. I ...
  • Thank you for that compliment re the barn and yearlings photos. I agree with you, I see a difference between digital camera images and digitized film negatives and I like the difference. One major ...
  • Created discussion thread Film Photography/Digital Processing
    Does film photography with digital processing qualify as a topic for this web site? I propose that it does qualify. Off camera processing is an important part of digital camera photography. Many ...
  • Is 35mm film making a comeback? Was the question. So many answers were just personal opinions. If Kodak have decided to re-manufacture Ektachrome this year then clearly they see an increasing ...

    Steve, I can see that the Nikon has more colour, is brighter, not just on the face but her T shirt is a darker more blue tone, the guard rail is brighter white, the tree in the background has more ...
  • Thanks balloon, There is a remote release device that is attached to the camera but it needs a person to be there to press the remote shutter release. I want to leave the camera set up and go away ...
