Film and digital

Bodleian 1 / Radcliffe Camera Bodleian / Radcliffe Camera

The first picture has been scanned from a commercially processed print from a Yashica-Mat photograph; the second is from an A100 picture taken from a near-identical viewpoint, cropped to be square, like the film photograph.

The Yashica-Mat has an 80 mm lens, equivalent to a 50 mm lens on a standard 35 mm camera; the A100 zoom lens (Tamron 28-200) was set to 30 mm – about 45 mm on a 35 mm camera.

The focus point was the wrought iron over the doorway.
