'The Shot' to be compared across mediums

'The Shot' to be compared across mediums

We have finished taking all of the images for our huge digital vs. film show-down.  The film is currently in queue for processing and I will post a list of all the film types shot and also all digital formats shot as soon as we group everything into a single place.  The write up & review will probably come in chunks, so be prepared for a lot of information coming your way.  We have done this test to attempt to settle the score on the current digital technology and its quality level versus the traditional photographic medium.

Today John-Paul and I will be taking a number of film sizes and types and making test shots to make the big comparison between film and digital.  The film types up for scrutiny and review?

  • 35mm Kodak Ektar & Ilford FP4 & Kodak Tech-Pan
  • Medium-format 2 1/4 and 6×4.5
  • Large Format 4×5

After the rolls are processed and digitized John-Paul and I will make comparisons to images of same subject matter shot tomorrow as well with both the Canon 5D and the Nikon D3.

We will see who the winners are and definitely share them with you once our results are finalized.

In Part 1 of our Infrared Photography Discussion, John-Paul provided us with great comparisons of the various IR films available on the market.  Additionally, he took the time to discuss the similarities, differences, and unique properties of each film.  This week’s discussion will focus on the various possibilities for black and white infrared photography using digital equipment and digital post-production processing techniques.  The day John-Paul made his IR film comparisons, he also made a digital capture of the scene we used to illustrate the various IR films in Part 1.  The digital capture can be seen below:
