Argentique

December 16, 2010

There is a mystique surrounding film photography that digital cannot achieve.

The sharpness in photos taken with my old Pentax continue to amaze me, when compared with the syrupy digital look of my Canon.

I have to admit that I really buzzed up the saturation in some of the Italian shots. Capturing the sense of a place is as important as recording exactly what is there…

  1. Film has about 25 megapixels worth of data in it (if shooting 35mm). That's more than twice as much as you're getting from most digital cameras. So, yes – it'll be better until they manage to make better sensors. Even then, you won't have the same quality as a wide-format, plate photograph, which is probably about 1/2 of a gigapixel's worth of imagery. 500 megapixels is a long, long way away.
