[Minolta 500si Tamon 28-300 F8-F11 ~150mm efffective Kodak Gold ISO200 color negative film > Epson V300 > Gimp] A 10MP crop of the original 30MP 4800dpi scan About what you'd get with a very-good subframe shooting raw & a very good lens at about 300mm effective. Minus a few poles LOL Probably could have gotten rid of the bushes here as well but that's another half-hour worth of editing. So, yes. Comparing the best of film to the worst of digital, and the best of digital to the worst of film, some interesting things pop up. It's not often that I get a shot that is terribly worse than I would have gotten easily with a subframe, say. Sometimes worse, yes, simply because I got the exposure wrong, something I've had to really learn to get right with film but I think I've got that down now. Usually I get a better shot with film than I would have gotten with a subframe, as long as the film is fast enough. Most of the time the colors come out much better than they would have with a subframe, and most of the time grain and dust are not major issues. The two things that I can't do easily with film are control the shots' exposure easily (it's either "good" or "not so good", it's that simple) or check the focus (likewise). Aside from changing ISO, which is not really that much of a deal for landscape-shooting. I rarely shoot fast film and I usually have a mini-tripod or a rest available. But I'm getting better and better at getting the exposure and AF to be "good" at the same time, certainly better at dealing with my scanner and between ISO200 and ISO800 film I can get all the shots I really want to get. Really, give me a bucket of ISO200 and a mini-tripod and I'll be happy. ISO100 is a little too slow for GP shooting, it's super-sensitive to exposure and not significantly cleaner or less-grainy than ISO200, and ISO400 is still not really fast enough for handheld shooting without a flash in low light but its *way* overkill for daylight. But the main thing is that surprisingly none of it is really that "grainy" if it is well-exposed and the aspect-ratio is realistic. It's more grainy than digital obviously but really not that bad plus there's no chroma-noise. For ultimate fine-detail, yes, one has to either shoot digital or go with a 9600dpi+ film scan and yes for ultimate speed and ease of use one has to shoot digital, no way around the fact that film has to be developed, scanned and cleaned. But for normal shooting, casual work, film is fine: easy & cheap to buy on eBay and develop, easy to load, shoot, scan & crop, fairly easy to clean, takes sharpening very well, and will definitely give you good fine-detail and great color. I'm happy with it. Plus you're not going to have to drop $500+ on the camera, which makes me *very* happy. Plus you can get great fullframe lenses for next to nothing. In fact they are so cheap and easy to buy that I had to stop myself from buying cheap SLRs and lenses on eBay. I gave up on the Tamron 17-35 in Nikon-mount (I could have gotten it for about $150 on eBay eventually but it's like catching a fish in your hands) and settled for a Cosina 19-35 for $85 with free shipping, and I bought a completely-unnecessary 500si Super for $40 from the UK including shipping instead of the 700si or 800si, which I could have had for about $75 on eBay. All because I wanted a 500si with a metal lens mount instead of a plastic mount (I'd never heard of such a thing before I bought the 500si). Altogether I bought the two 500si's and the N80 for $75 total not including shipping. That's what I paid for a Canon A610 off eBay 3 years ago and I've paid more than that for a new B+W multicoated UV filter in 77mm. I also bought a D70 for $85 along the way, which has various issues but still takes good shots. I would rather shoot any of these than the A650IS, G9, A610, 400D, A200 or even the 5D that I used to own. The 5D is not "bad" but really only hits its stride in low light at ISO800-1600. And that's just not enough to justify a $1k 12MP fullframe. The A610/A650/G9/A200 really only hit their stride at either ISO100 during the day or ISO800 in low light, which again is really not enough to justify a $300 subframe or even a $200 point & shoot not to mention a $400 one. The D70 is a much better all-around camera than the A200 even without body-IS not to mention the 400D. And I'm not even going to talk about the S2IS, the old Coolpix 6100, the S2, the FZ5, the Olympus SP310, SP340 or SP500UZ all of which have come up here and failed and failed badly on this shot and in the Inner Harbor (except maybe the SP500UZ shooting raw)...I'd much rather just put the same Tamron 28-300VC on the N80 that I'd have to put on the 5D, and the 500si gets a Tamron 28-300 without VC to match the Tamron 18-250 that the A200 would have, without the body-IS and the extra focal-length true but without the vignetting plus the ability to shoot ISO100-800 and getJesses Jason Yazman
© Jose O. Mediavilla 2010 ALL RIGHTS RESERVED No rights granted unless in writing by Jose O. Mediavilla I met Jesses in a small park near 8th Ave and 14th street. He was sitting on a milk crate dozing off. HIs shirt was clothes were really dirty, and his shoes looked like he traveled through a swamp. Next to him was his cart, which was filled with plants, newspapers and plastic cups. Two small American flags mounted on the cart were flapping in the wind. I felt like saying hello, so I woke him. "Hello." "Excuse me sir." "Hello Sir!" He gasps as he wakes and I apologize for waking him. Instantly he says 'hi' and offers me a drink. I say 'no thank' and then he asks if I would like a newspaper or a magazine from his cart. Again, I say 'no thank you' and I introduce myself. He noticed my camera and told me that Nikon's are real good cameras. He went on a rant about photography and how he used to be an assistant photographer. He used to own six different cameras, and he was a fan of wide angle lenses. I asked him if I could take his picture while we talked. He accepted my request and continued to talk about his life. The conversation went of for about an hour and a half. Our conversation in summary: Jesses is originally from Guatemala. He learned to fly when he was 14, flying planes for crop dusting. When he was 18 he joined the US Navy and became a pilot. He flew a fighter jet in the Vietnam war and had 23 confirmed kills. After his enlistment he had a variety of jobs. He was a school teacher at a middle school teaching geology, He was an assistant chef and eventually became a chef, only to become an assistant chef again voluntarily because he thought being a chef was too much work. He was a carpenter, he was the guy that handed out mail in an office, and he was even a door man. Jesses told me with story with such passion and incredible details. He reminisced about flying in his plan as a teenager and going past the speed of sound in the Navy. "It was an incredible life," he said. Jesses seemed very sad when he mentioned he is 64 years old and the prime of his life is gone. He takes a sip from his drink. As he exhales, fumes of alcohol poisons the air around us. I start to wonder is hanging around the park and drinking whiskey from his plastic bottle was a regular routine for Jesses. I never asked him how he came to be in this condition. The Navy must be giving him some kind of benefits for his contribution in the war. We didn't talk about financial stuff though. He didn't seem to be worried about his condition at all. He didn't even ask me for a single dime. Somehow I think that Jesses might be financially stable. I think he is choosing to live in the streets. In our long conversation we also spoke about God. He so much wants to live God's purpose. Maybe he's trying to find himself in a way, He mentioned that he was writing a book about his life. I gave him my card and asked him to contact me when it comes out, "I'd love to read it". We shook hands and said goodbye. "I'll see you around Jose. God bless you!" he says. "Don't forget to clean your camera. It's a good camera, Take good care of it." I will I tell him. I will.
