All right kids – voting time!
I took my Pentax K1000, completely manual, old-school camera and my Pentax K20D, super digital, 14.6 megapixel camera with me to the Oregon coast. The diptych above shows the difference between the two cameras. The photo on the left was taken with my K1000. It was shot on Kodak 400 Ultramax film. The photo on the right was taken with my K20D. It was shot on a CMOS digital sensor. I adjusted the contrast slightly on each in Photoshop (I had the film transferred to a CD); otherwise, these two photos were taken in the same place with Pentax 50mm f1.7 lenses on two separate cameras.
So, which one do you like better? The one on the left, or the one on the right? Film, or digital?
