And that presenter, Jon Bentley... He's a robot right? Far too much movement and facial expression to be human!

An unfair comparison to be sure, but I confess to being distracted by the Emma Peel costume.
Good man. I did just that. Will post if anything comes back.

I'm calling bullshit and I haven't seen the results yet. It is a digital print in both cases, so you are limited by a CCD or a CMOS no matter what is done! Any drop in resolution is due to the lack of clarity in the negative scanner. BULLLLLSHIIIIITTTT

Is this video really accurate and fair?
Its an extreme example, but here is a clip to another "Which is better - Film or Digital" that I watched.
They compare a Nikon F5 to a Nikon D300 both at ISO400.
Their verdict, rather predictably, is that the digital was better.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't there like a thousand factors that could influence this? The scanning equipment, firslty, the film used (they don't state what film it was - a pro film like Kodak Portra 160NC or some high street rubbish?) etc etc
The video is here :
I admit my only comparisons are between film shot on my F80 and my D70s and film always wins for me. I have just bought an F5 and yet to see the results from that but I expect they will be better still than the F80.
This is the 19th post about the Video !!!! You should read the site more Ted
And another thread merged.
Yes - my apologies. I was to eager to post it having being amused by it's bias. Sorry, David, for taking up your time moving it. You could have just deleted it - I'd not have taken offence :-)
There is a rather longish thread on PN about the comparison of Digital to Film with their asessment that Digital is far superior and film is really digital itself. I gave up on them. You cannot reason with any of the digital people.
