Why I STILL use film more than digital…

All my readers know by now that I am always pushing film, even though digital is marching on and on.

So, today, I will not be putting forward MY views. Instead, I will both start this post and end it with the view of another person….

“Today’s street photography shot with digital cameras will never evoke emotions of true photos which film era brought to us.

The quality is there but the character is missing and since digital is so cheap and available practically to everyone there is nothing unique about today’s photographs and since supply and demand still exists, digital photos will never have value to people who appreciate true art.”

Now you have heard it from street level!

Have a great weekend!

ME & MY PASSION! ok, you probably looked at the length of this "about me" page and thought, god, what's wrong with this guy!....does he have to start telling us his life story or something!!? well, youve come here now anyways, so why not hear what im like as a person, eh? ive been using film cameras for well over 30 years...my first one being the family yashicamat twin lens! over the years, ive both bought sold and collected film cameras...too many to tell the truth! in fact, ive been buying and selling cameras well before the internet came on the scene, so anything you purchase from me is backed by my self-styled moneyback promise.....if you dont like what youve bought, send it back within 14 days and you get all your money back...no arguments!! WHERE I STAND ON THE DIGITAL REVOLUTION! yes, i do use digital as well, but only as a ready-reckoner...i try and take most shots with my simple 2megapixel digicam....if the shot looks good, i pull out my film camera and shoot! i most defintely do not believe in digital manipulation of photographs....that in my eyes is not photography...its cheating! WHERE I USED TO LIVE, WHERE I AM NOW & WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO DO! i used to live in Ontario, Canada, but moved back to the UK a little while ago (its a long story..!)...but now i'm living in the one place i always wanted to be...Vancouver, BC..the next best thing to paradise on earth! as i work as a freelance writer as well as other things, i often find hat my work takes me to europe for short spells, so i get to travel a lot...not a blessing, as i just hate long flights! im a qualified Quality Assurance guy (you know...ISO 9000, auditing, documentation etc) ....99% of my skill-set is transferable so i can handle any admin or documentation-related roles....see you in BC! otherwise, i specialise in ISO 9000 auditing and documentation. my dream? to have my own thriving camera shop in Vancouver BC, whilst living in the mountains somewhere.....the best of both worlds!

  1. Really, no need to explain! It’s that same conversation like analog or digital sound… as if there is a comparison between them. One is music and the other is tin! However here too that can be transcended [not sure about that word] by a true artist. 😉
    Greetings – hope all is well!

    • very eloquently and succinctly put, marina!
      you have it in a nutshell…there simply is no comparison twixt the two…
      i think we talked about my views of analog audio vs digital audio..and yes, u are perfectly correct as always..digital audio sucks, big time…it really does sound like TIN! have a great weekend, marina…ya sous!
