film vs digital

I decided to take a few shots in film and digital a couple of weeks ago. The scans from lab came in today and I’ll start with just a couple (for lack of time at the moment).


Hasselblad 500C/M with Zeiss Planar T* 2.8/80mm, shot on Kodak Portra 400, f/2.8 at 1/125s


Canon 5DmkII with Canon 50mm f/1.4, shot at ISO 400, f/2.8 at 1/125s

Color correction is very personal, of course. The first one is a straight scan from the lab. The second, slightly edited in ACR (color balance and bringing back the blown highlights). I used my light meter to come up with the setting for the Portra 400 and then copied them into the 5DmkII.


Next two shots have the same settings as above. The bokeh is definitely more buttery on the first shot, but that might have something to do with it being shot with an 80mm as opposed to the 50mm used for the second one. Maybe next time I’ll try with the Canon 85mm.
