Leica M9 vs. 35mm B&W Film Comparison (with same lenses on both cameras).
Leica M9 + Zeiss ZM Planar 50mm f2 T Lens. (Sharp!)
I think this model portrait of Yulya taken in Ukraine looks a similar to low contrast film such as Fomapan. I have not shot any black and white 35mm film since buying my Leica as I keep telling myself the B&W photos from the Leica M9 are almost indistinguishable from those I have taken with my Voigtlander Bessa R3A film camera.
So.. time to make a head to head comparison using the same lenses on both cameras (Voigtlander glass). I hope film can proof me wrong and come out the clear winner but I think the Bessa is up against strong competition.
I have 2 fashion shoots booked in London tomorrow with model friends so i’ll take both cameras and do a little side by side comparison experiment. Once the film is developed I will post some samples from both cameras. Will we be able to tell the difference!?
Results and full details coming soon! 🙂
