Looking Into 2011
I began 2010 with renewed interest in film. www.flickr.com/photos/senroy/4232020560/ I believe I still fired more digital pictures than film ones, but it was closer than I believed it would be. The two cameras pictured here will replace the Rollei and Nikon in the 2010 pic I linked. My goal is twofold:
1) Take more film than digital.
2) Develop all my own film. (Yes, including C-41 and E-6.)
The 5D will still always be at hand, I have to keep the grandparents' inboxes freshly full and digitial is just far too convenient for this. But if we travel this year as hoped, I will be leaving digital at home.
Sidenote on the pictured EOS3: Both the metering and the AF performance handily eclipse my 5D. It's also lighter, easier to navigate settings/menus, and it makes less noise and vibration when taking a picture. Excepting having to buy, develop, and scan the film, I see the 5D as a backwards step in just about every way!
