    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).

    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.

    Maybe steak tartare?

    There is also "blue" which is basically where you show the steak the flame quickly on each side and throw it on the plate.

    My thought on his comment, was actually that hey maybe there's no film in the camera, because it's a wet plate

    I regularly shoot JPEGs on d*g*t*l because it's good exposure practice. Can you imagine a film photographer saying "I don't worry about exposure because I can fix it under the enlarger"? That's exactly what RAW digital users advocate all the time. They do this because digital cameras do not promote a sense of confidence owing to the numerous layers of technical intervention - most of which are automated - that making an image requires. Chimping is the most obvious manifestation of this lack of confidence in the equipment, and pros are as guilty as amateurs.

    Turn off the screen, cancel RAW, blank the histograms and learn some vital exposure skills that transfer to film.
