Ah! that's why I hear 5.2 fps to be too slow....... when compared to video, it is....now, I get it
I've seen a very creative video made from shooting a dSLR in this mode and of course the IQ was superb (every frame was a key frame!) and its low light capability was awesome. The 6 or 7fps the camera did made for a cool, choppy tempo and the guy did a good job. He couldn't have a very long continuous scene of course. He must have spent weeks working in a video editor.

Ansel will be watching from above.
May be he can put in a good word with the almighty for some decent light for this poor Pentaxian brandishing a mere 35mm, and not an 8X10 ...I bought a 50's 6X6, but that's not coming till after the trip.

Ansel did use Tri-X and HC110. Today he'd probably shoot digital and stitch, with extensive post processing.

Thanks for reminding me. He did indeed. And I agree that if he were still alive, he would probably be doing straight digital as well. He was a great fan of the early digital that was being done at the time of his death.

Yep. Most people are convinced that Ansel was a traditionalist who would always shoot film, but...

QuoteOriginally posted by Ansel Adams, 1981:
I eagerly await new concepts and processes. I believe that the electronic image will be the next major advance. Such systems will have their own inherent and inescapable structural characteristics, and the artist and functional practitioner will again strive to comprehend and control them.
QuoteOriginally posted by Ansel Adams, 1975:
For me the future of the image is going to be in electronic form ... You will see perfectly beautiful images on an electronic screen. And I'd say that would be very handsome. They would be almost as close as the best reproductions.

Doesn't Adorama still sell film? If so what do you advise your customers do for processing?

Here are a few shots I took with my S1a using plain old Fujicolor 200 speed film. Processed, scanned, and burned to CD at a local Target store. Not bad looking film to me..





And Kodak Gold 200...Processed, scanned and burned to CD by Walgreens.

I mainly use my film camera for black & white imaging.
My favorite for processing locally in regular C41 processing is Ilford XP2.
I love how you can shoot from ISO 200-800 on a single roll of film and still get wonderful results.
