Nikon D800 DSLR vs. Nikon FM SLR film camera!
This photo is of Polish model Agnieszka in the studio taken with the pro level DSLR 36MP Nikon D800 + Nikkor 200mm f2 AI-s lens.
Now as a comparison here is a photo of the same model omn the same day but from the opposite side taken with a Nikon FM 35mm SLR film camera:
Nikon FM + Nikkor 200mm f2 AI-s
Kodak T-Max 100 – Stand developed in 1:1 Xtol + Rodinal, 20min, 21 degrees.
The Nikon D800 cost me 25x more than the Nikon FM film camera but the final result is not so dissimilar. I actually prefer the film camera photo and so do the lovely people on Flickr.
Lighting – Mix of continious light from a 650W Arri light + speedlights. I teach photography and lighting and run workshops from my Coventry UK studio. For more information see here.
