my problem is I still think in Film

:eek::rolleyes::mrgreen:

As I said on page three or something of the thread, if it helps, think of different sensors as different film stocks. You wouldn't process two different films the same way. Sensors and digital post-processing is the same.

Elaborating further on the comparison. The reason why sometimes we struggle to adjust to different digital cameras and how their images look in or after post-processing is the same reason that drove film photographers to buy up batches of their favourite film stock when it was going out of production - or previously before large projects when they wanted to achieve a consistent look. They liked how it shot, how it looked, how it rendered. They were comfortable with it and its processes and didn't want to change. Shoot for a long time with one particular type of digital sensor and the same thing will happen. Some people like to keep all their lenses within the same family for that same reason - consistency in lens materials and coatings to keep their colours and contrast the way they like them. Introduce a Sigma Art lens into an L shooter's bag and it's not that the lens is any better or worse but it might well be different to what they are used to and the results may not satisfy them. These are objective differences, they do exist, but they are subjective preferences. I think that is the other root cause of the discussion we've been having in this thread.

I'm going to stop now. I'm worried about ruining my book worthiness. #notworthy

Happy Holidays to one and all. May we all shoot happily.

True. I bought a lot of Kodachrome 25 and agfapan 25 at one point ...but they ran out of course

Nope, that familiar smell of fixer in the darkroom, a bit like vinegar.

When I was a young kid I played with b/w darkroom processing. As a kid I did some dodge/burn and simple fun artsy stuff.

I remember that chemical vinegar smell vividly :)

aha! I remember the fixer smell as if it was still up my nose today , but I had never thought of it as vinegar, it's certainly not something I'd want on my chips!!

LOL

Yes you are right, stop bath was the vinegar smell & fixer was the unforgettable linger, perhaps my mind blocked that out for a while but it's back now. Deep breaths.
