well, the question isn't dangerous but the thought process may be. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] As many of you already know, I only shoot digital and have since 1998 - BUT - I got here using film just like most veterans. I do have access to the equipment and a frig full of film - and with all the ongoing pontificating from so many boasting film is still the sh*t - I have been mysteriously intrigued. One person close to me was going on and on about the skin transparency quality captured in film so I have had serious thoughts about that qualification. A lot of information to have to evaluate and compare... so, here's my question: In my curiosity, did I shoot this shot using film or digital? I can't remember so please tell me if you know. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] No Photoshop here, this is the shot, I didn't even use the rubber stamp... I wanted this scan or capture to be pristine for this evaluation.

Please tell me, I am dying to know. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

That sir is a lovely digital image of the even lovlier Chelsie. I'm betting either a MF back or possibly a Canon 1D or 1Ds Mk. II.

I'm gonna guess film, sole on the fact that the file is called film.jpg In all honesty it's really, really hard to tell on web images because most scanners compress the ev range as much, if not more than a digital camera. iso400 negative reversal film still has a tonal range that digital drools over, but I think for many applications digital is beating chromes.

Robert,

I'll guess digital, either that or you lost some quality while scanning in the tonal transitions on her forehead when converting this for digital / web use, which to me makes it look digital.

If this is several years old however the highlights and shadow detail look like film.... I give up, to hard to tell at this size!

Scanned or captured, the image is digital. I think the question is irrelevant since the working space of the picture is sRGB, a space with a much smaller gaumet then that of a print from film. There are many other factors that can contribute to the quality of an image. In the end only a few people can really see all of the color in an image.

I remember when I used to publish a magazine. We could have a great print, excellent drum scan, perfect registration in prepress, but if the pressman was having a bad day all the good stuff that preceeded didn't matter.

Wonderful image of a beautiful model. I don't think it makes a difference which you shot it with.

i gotta go with what tom said. we're not looking at a "wet" print that's remained in the film domain from cradle to grave. whether you captured it on film and then scanned it or you let a sensor capture and process it, the end result is still a digital image and, frankly, once it becomes digital it's no longer apples and oranges. it's all digital fruit.

Here's a film shot.



I believe it was Ektapress 400 rated at 250. Scanned with a Coolscan LS2000, printed on Epson 2000 printer and more recently, scanned again on a flatbed. Still looks like film to my eye.
