Digital or film. I shoot digital when I need digital and film when I need film. For the work I do for vineyard corporations I shoot film as stated and demonstrated above.

I love both. Either way, you get a workable photograph and that is all that counts.

Again, love them both; love photography. Everything about it.

Hi all, I haven't used them lately, but I do have a Rolleicord V-a TLR that still worked fine the last time I used it with Ilford HP5 plus and a Pentax 645 manual focus SLR that I used with color film. I really should at least get the Pentax out of storage. MrDave

I have several clients that still want me to use film rather than digital. The major part of my income comes from shooting 4x5...used to have a little mf...but I do those on digital now.


I don't use 8x10 other than using the 4x5 reducing back on it for studio use. The 'f'(field) camera obviously go outside the studio. My film usage has dropped off considerably since digital arrived. I used to shoot nearly 2000 sheets of 4x5 film per year, now it's down to just over 700 sheets.

90% of my captures are on medium format or larger.

I'm with Chris and others, the majority of my serious work is still MF & LF, unless I know that it will be going into print at a smaller size. My preference for anything ultimately 8x10 or larger final output is at least a 6x7 neg, preferrably larger.

Have you bought your new 39mp "Blad"? What are you waiting for? You can get a pretty good setup for $40K to $50K US. Maybe you want to buy two so you have backup.

May God Bless the Minox!

Tom, God doesn't bless cameras, he blesses Notre Dame football games. Where have you been? Not in church, obviously.
