Film vs. digital

West Friesland landscape

Minolta Dynax 7 with Fuji Pro 800Z: 1/400 @ f/20 +1.0 EV

West Friesland

Sony A100 set to 100 ISO: 1/200 @ f/9


It’s a bit unfair to compare a home scan of a high-speed film against one of the better quality settings in the digital camera, but I like the qualities of both pictures. It’s cold in the top picture, crisp in the bottom one … .

Schardam winter

Filed under: coast, film, landscape, Minolta Maxxum 9000, Pro 800Z, Schardam, The Netherlands — Howard @ 8:00 am

Near Hoorn, The Netherlands, late December 2009; one of my favourite spots in West Friesland.

Minolta 9000 and Fujicolor Pro 800Z film: I like the cold, muted quality this film has under these conditions.
