@Kempy72 Yes 😀 NZ freight trains are freakingly fast. By track condition you would expect freight train 20 km/h, actually they do 100 km/h and above

After being inspired by the superb old slide pictures of @Maersk.146 , I have decided to experiment on film photography again.

Film used to be my main technology for railway photography during the years 2006-2016. I bought DSLR in 2016 because I became mostly interested in high-speed rail. Now whilst in New Zealand, I have obtained Canon FTb from 1972 and run some Kodak Ektar films through it. I am pretty happy with the results.

Photography is a form of art where beauty is in the eyes of the viewer - therefore everybody has the right to agree or disagree with my love to film. My conclusions of the film experiment are the following:
- Kodak Ektar has outstanding color saturation that is excellent especially during sunny weather and advantageous over DSLR;
- The level of detail on 35mm film is not as high as on full-frame DSLR. Medium format film could have comparable detail;
- Due to the low ISO speed of film, the fastest possible shutter speed is 1/1000 s. It is usable only for the situations where train speed is relatively low, up to 120 km/h. For high-speed rail, the film is complicated.

@Ilia.Obuhov.52 @John.Russell.4NZSteam Thanks guys! 🙂 Indeed it is taken from Buckley road, train number 565. Now days have become longer and it is now possible to spot this train during daylight.
