    I like film...(open thread)

    Hi All, .... the reason why I do not come here ? “ can’s worms” ? written by one person of this thread , an adjustment of these terms is imperative . It is necessary to put the expression of these terms in a context where at the beginning I intervened for the SIZE of what I obtain with the image of film in TIFF 16 bits that is to say “10 times higher” than what I have with the DNG of my digital camera 12 Mo in DNG vs 120 Mo in TIFF. So it comes from there. One person (the first ) intervened to say that it was wrong, and another person (the second) answered him including in his comment of “can’s worms” and with one comment "it is nice" (commenting the photos posted by the first person). How do I know ? because I received immediately this comment on my personal email address ( I follow this film thread - I kept this mail as proof) ... coming to read after in the forum, this comment of “can’s worms ” is DELETED by this second person ... Why have it “deleted” if the idea of worms can was not blameless or without afterthought ? ... coincidentally these two persons have a M10 , which leads me to say by passing to these people that if the images are so good for them , they can leave and let drop the film in this case. It is the use of these words in its context that makes me angry (this type of comment is “across my throat”) . I always said that what I get with the film is superior in SIZE and in quality to what I get with my 2 digital cameras and it is the truth . This is also what Adam and Philip recently demonstrated. We are here in a forum where we can discuss , but avoid the use of terms that can be confusing . I'm a practician and for me a “can” with “worms” has a sense. https://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/english/can-of-worms No need using this expression for one comment , there are others less aggressive and insulting. For your information, the first person is Mister Nowhereman , the second person is Mister JMF … and thank you by passing to Chris , Phil , Philip and some other friends in this thread for your kind intervention and support in the past. . Best and good photos to All in this excellent thread. Henry

    I like this look Edward This picture is also nice Edward This last picture with insects for meal is the proof that film gives us a sharp definition with softness , not like in digital. Finally your series of street photos show us that film has a very nice black and white tone ... and also outstanding definition, contrast without agressivity I mean for our eyes Thanks for posting Edward Best Henry

    Thanks Edward me too I prefer M rather R and it's less heavy less discrete Adam you're right I tried Ilfosol S or Ilfotec HC it's not like D76 I think D76 is the best with TX Best Henry

    Edward all these pictures have beautiful black with nice grain , I like this film too A good compromise between grain , nice black and white tone and definition When I purchase my new M-A , Leica offers me some rolls of TX 400 The best developer for TX is IMO Kodak Pro D76 Best Henry Another question Edward you find a difference when you shoot FM with M7 ? You prefer M or FM ?
