    Dynamic Range FIAL!

    Cropped sections from photo in question. Again, not saying digital could not have handled this, but that film would have handled it easily with nothing more than sunny-16.

    well the whole exposure is off, like, it's overexposed by at least a stop or two to begin with...

    Also, did you save this as a RAW file or just jpg... because that could also be a huge reason you can't pull the detail?

    ANYWAY... this isn't a digital discussion forum so you can't answer that here anyway haha, but anyway, film is grand so yay film!

    Well, yeah its overexposed by a stop, I see that NOW. Not very forgiving, is it? And no, not RAW because you can't rapid fire shoot (pets) without overloading the buffer along with other processing issues we don't need to talk about here.

    So yeah, film has some advantages other than these touchy feely mystical qualities people were talking about.

    AH that's your main problem, you're using JPG not RAW... no wonder, not a good comparison haha... for you film guys I'll talk in terms of film to be PC....

    He's shooting with..... Fuji FP100C and getting a print, instead of shooting with Portra, and then wondering why the over exposed image can't get any info in the blown highlights, because the image is final, you don't have a digital negative (RAW), you have a digital print (JPG) so you're not going to be able to pull info... nuff said on that subject.

    STILL why do I shoot film? cause it's friggin awesome!!! (and you don't have to machine gun your pets with it... hehe).

    What is RAW? Are you cooking meat?

    Right! I figured that the meat would start off RAW and end up in Medium Format.

    why do I use film?


    what a bizarre question...as if I would set up the camera, compose, focus, measure the light, calculate an exposure and trip the shutter....only to expose the...what? air molecules inside the film chamber? I use film because...well, because photography is kinda a meaningless activity without film in the camera...isn't it?

    Me, I'm just to dumb and old fashioned for digital. Not to mention, there have been some statutes passed regarding my being allowed to use certain types of technology, part of which might or might not be digital photography.

    No, it's just, by and large, that it is all I have ever used. Don't see that changing much in the future.
    Thank you.
