View from Coronado - Film vs Digital

View from Coronado – Film vs Digital

I got up stupidly early so I could shoot dawn light over the Coronado bridge in San Diego this morning.

Took both the Fuji X-Pro1, and the Fuji G617 Panoramic Camera loaded with Fuji Velvia 50, so was able to record the same scene with both digital and film.

It’s interesting to see how each medium interprets the light – each have their own strengths, and I don’t think there is a ‘right’ look, just multiple variations on a theme.

Here’s the Coronado Bridge, taken with the X-Pro1 and 23mm Lens, from North Island.

And here’s the same scene, taken as a single 120 617 frame on Fuji Velvia 50, with the G617 camera. Exposure 1.5 min at f/22

I have to say I like both for different reasons, but the lush colors of the Velvia are just so compelling.

Here are a couple of other shots from the same session – using the X-Pro1 and 55-200mm Lens.
