Nice shots until you see the last one. Makes the others commonplace.

Nicely presented Poilu
I don't understand the camera Fuji?
Could you describe it for me and lens used?
Is it point and shoot?

Perhaps not better, but definitely fun to use.

thanks for nice comments

Fuji Z200 is the name of the cheap film Very Happy
body was contax 167 with contax 85 2.8
digital with contax 35-70

I didn't want to compare digital with film
I take the digital shot just to check colors when scanning with bellow

I didn't find the digital version better, I prefer the color of sea and sky on film
Don't forget that in this case the 40D is the limitation when scanning and conversion to jpg destroy lot of colors
The Z200 is sharp without heavy grain
Why do you consider digital better on this sample Confused

I like the one with flower pots and the one with the paintings.
You are right, digital vs. film should not be the topic here. In negative film, there always remains the question,
if the prints are really showing what is in the picture.
I am astonished about the quality of your bellow "scans", impressing.

Very nice set, Poilu, I like the colors you got from the film. My faves are
the flower pots/staircase and of course the sunbathers. Wink

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks Jes!
I was not happy with the colors
I changed them a little today, I hope they are better
I was trying with ACR but I get better result with levels
I just use the auto from levels after invert, then change the curve to boost contrast

Really nice contrast and saturation in those shots. Esp the pots.

For some reason I'm drawn to the 3rd pic though. Embarassed

I missed this thread... what a tantalizing series. I love your island's fauna Wink
#3 reminds me of my vacations when I was a Uni student... sigh. Crying or Very sad
#4 looks like the pidgeons are watching the bikini ladies Laughing
Last one is funny, much Hitchcock's humour I would say Very Happy

I am impressed by how well the cheap film holds the comparison with digital... well of course digital colours feel more realistic... not to mention detail... but the contrast inherent to the film makes the picture look better in the background area compared to digital.
