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.
