@ Henry

Sure, they are very close, but even there, I can walk or grip in the analog pics. This will never work with digital.

Joachim , there are many factors involved :

already the color (sometimes not the same)

then the "false clarity" that gives the digital (smoothed pixels) and not well-defined grains

(in color as b&w) film is sharper, better defined (see many examples I shown above)

and then this "numerical aspect" , to the end "aggressive" lines, "cutting" lines

then it is clear that it is the software that does the job and it's too well so that everything

is at the same level, this is why the image becomes "flat"

My poppies are better in film

I was very brave enough to carry my Medium format two lenses/ meters/ and a Canon EOS and a 50mm, a lot of films No tripod/ It is crazy when I thi

Bonjour Henri,   I still prefer black and white film (I use almost no colour). The advantages of digital don’t mean much to me. Seeing instant results is not so useful, since what comes out of a camera is always far from a final result, and the final result requires time and thought.   Film also continues to improve. The quality of available film and developers is as good as it has ever been, and it is still as competent as digital sensors of equivalent size.   I also much prefer silver g

On a week-long stay at the Faroe Islands, I took the ferry from Torshavn (the 'capital') to the southernmost island, Suduroy, and looked up potential shooting locations on the island. This image was taken a little before the sun was setting in the ocean, with wind from the west (left). With the uplift of the humid air at the cliffs, fog and clouds drifted over the island. A quite typical situation for the islands; the ocean can be more or less cloud free, but the islands are generally covered in

And beautiful they are too, something that is missing in this neck of the woods. Keep them coming.

 

If I was honest I thought the APX100 (original too) would have been "less gritty". First thing I thought.

 

Still, lovely shots nevertheless.
