There's a lot said about film versus digital, and a lot of it tends to be one extreme or the other, but like most things in life, the truth lies somewhere in the middle. This great video takes a very balanced and honest look at the merits and drawbacks of each when used in a fashion shoot.
Coming to you from Anita Sadowska, this video follows her as she works alongside Photographer Alex Hutchinson on a fashion shoot, alternating between shooting film and digital. I really appreciated the video because they're careful to keep the shots and lighting similar to make direct comparisons easier, and they're both very measured and balanced in evaluating the advantages and disadvantages of both. Personally, I still love shooting with my Fuji GW690 III (affectionately called the "Texas Leica" by film shooters), but I would also never take it on most paid shoots. That doesn't diminish my enjoyment of working with it, though. In this video, you'll see Sadowska shooting with a Canon 5D Mark IV with the EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS lens, while Hutchinson shoots with a Pentax 67 II medium format camera (which produces negatives almost five times larger than a full frame camera) with a 105mm f/2.4 lens.
