Film Vs Digital Photography

After switching to digital several years ago, I recently came across a Nikon FM3a for sale at one of the reputable secondhand shop here in Singapore. The body is almost in mint condition, there is a small scratch on the underside but overall it’s still a beauty. I took it out last weekend for testing and found it quite solid and heavy after getting used to plastic body dslr — I can only afford the cheaper ones.

Shooting with film again, it felt like a leisurely walk in the park. With a limited roll, I am more careful with the composition and with the camera settings. I managed to get eight decent pictures from a single 36 shots roll of film which is a remarkable improvement compared to my dslr ratio of 6 pictures out of a hundred shots.

Scanned version of my first set with the Nikon FM3a can be viewed here.

By the way, the picture featured in this entry was taken with my Canon 60D, light painted using my mobile phone and then processed in Picasa.
