For film lovers…and Ken Rockwell fans!


I don’t know you but I have never stopped to take pictures with film cameras! May one day I will explain you the reasons why I do this but today I invite you to read the recent Ken Rockwell reviews of two films (both slides).
First we have the Fuji 400x review. I tried the film and I do not like the color rendition. If I have to use 400 ISO I preferr to use the Kodak Portra 400VC or the Fuji Neopan 400 black and white film.

Than we have the Kodak Ektachrome E100G review. I like this film for street photography. I use it a lot!

And if you have time read his very provocative article over film quality against digital photo quality!

I agre with him to 99%!

Remember the best camera is the camera you can carry with you! And if you do not have money but want to be a real photographer buy an old Olympus RC! It is a fantastic camera (with his used price set at only 50$) and at low ISO it beats the image quality of the Nikon D700!
