While shooting my Cobra Frames edit, I was experimenting with both digital and film cameras. My wallet hates me for it, but film still looks better. And it’s not a question of resolution or dynamic range (the d800 has better optical fidelity than medium format any day). It’s about more pleasing tonal and color quality. As my roommate and I used to say, it’s got that creamy saturated fat, that whole milk mozzarella.
