Film Camera Vs. Digital Camera

Ales Litomisky did an interesting test comparing Film 35 mm: Nikkormat FT3 , Film 6×6 cm: Hasselblad 503CW, Canon EOS 5D, full size sensor 24x36mm, 12.8 MegaPixels, and Nikon D200, APS-C sensor, 10.2 MegaPixels.


Interesting results from the test:

“The best quality both in print and on the screen viewed at 100% are clearly from the Canon 5D, followed by the Nikon D200, then the Hasselblad, and lastly – after a significant gap – by the 35 mm film camera.

I expected that the prints from the digital cameras would be better than those from the 35mm film; the superior quality of the Canon 5D prints as compared to the Hasselblad, however, was a surprise to me. The significant difference between the Hasselblad and the 35mm film surprised me as well.”
