Nikon D200 Vs 4 x 5″ Film

Ken Rockwell has posted the result of his latest test with the new Nikon D200. This time he’s comparing the new Nikon D200 DSLR camera with 4×5″ Film. Here’s some of the reasons why 4×5″ film is better:

Nikon D200

“The D200 has nowhere near as many pixels as the film scan. When enlarged similar amounts the D200, or any digital camera or back, can’t keep up.

As time goes on scanners get better. You always can scan your film again in 10 or 20 years. I have 30 year old Kodachromes and 15 year old Velvias that look identical to when they were new. You’re stuck with whatever you got from your D200, presuming you can even find software to read the raw files if you didn’t save or shoot them as JPGs.”
