Just thought I would share this with the forum.

Went out today without checking my camera settings and took some photos outside using Tungston indoor light WB setting, but because I was using RAW the WB was easy to put back where it should have been.

The shot out of the camera.


After ACR in CS2

I shoot RAW exclusively, mainly for the post processing leverage and bit depth it gives me in processing.

Ahh..the power of RAW. It really does help using RAW for instances such as this. Nice shot Tom. That's a very mature looking Eagle...cheers...Don

It is amazing that in RAW you can fix the WB in about ten seconds because you still have all the info from the original shot waiting to be processed the way it should have been done in the first place.

Try that with film!

I think some people should still shoot using film.

I use my film camera once and a while shooting Velvia and Provia and am very happy with the results.

Tom, I'm curious... are you shooting both film and digital? If so, what are your thoughts on why you still shoot film while owning a digital camera? I'm just naturally curious. :-)

I talk to some old timers (for lack of a better term) and I hear my fair share of them complaining about new technology. I feel its too bad they can't embrace it.... their loss in the end. :?

Always an interesting discussion.

I don't know about Tom but I can think of several reasons I prefer to shoot film. But they all have to do with equipment not the film itself.

First of all I would like to kick the snot out of whoever had the idea to remove the aperture ring from lenses. The least they could do is put a command dial near (or better yet around) the lens mount so you could use your left hand.

Second I'm thinking of make a grip of some sort for my D50 just to add some weight and a better hand hold.

Don't even get me started on the dern little viewfinder.

In short my film cameras are just more pleasant to use. But I figured a digital camera was a better and less expensive (I bought used) option that a good film scanner.

I was going to holdout until someone made a full frame camera at an affordable price. But I realized that was never going to happen. So I carry a film camera around for my wide angle lenses.

Don't get me wrong I like my D50 but I'd rather shoot with my F or FM anyday. Which brings up another point. Do you think my D50 will still be working when it's as old as my film cameras?

TJ….AKA also Tom

Good feedback, Tom! :-) As far as the D50 lasting as long, I can only guess it depends on how you treat it. I'm guessing like with everything else, you get what you pay for.
