    Many thanks, I enjoyed this test. I propose another if you have interest. How to mimic an appearance of 120 film with Fuji xs? Some years ago I use 35 1.4 with square frame set in the old X pro 1. Seeing your proofs of this test I guess maybe a bit long lens would be better, probably 56? The perspective is very different but I think if we have space around we can do a similar shot.

    Interesting test, and I’m glad the Acros simulation is similar to the film that’s on its way out (along with most of Fuji) as the look is so unique, but I’ll cast my doubt on a 24 MP APS-C camera being just as or more detailed than a 200 lines/mm film on 120.

    Oh, Luigi! I wish you hadn’t published this comparison! I’m all set for a few days in the UK next week which I had intended to use to evaluate whether a Canon FF kit is worth the added weight over a Fuji APS-C kit, ahead of two important photographic trips this summer. Now I may have to dust off my Canon EOS 1V to add to the mix (I have never owned an MF system). I find the film image better than the digital image in each of every case, regardless of whether the digital image has more resolution or “sharper”. The tonal range is far more subtle and the “feel” of the photo so much more pleasing.

    Great comparison,

    showing again how much better the film is over the digigat. All digital pictures look like done with a smartphone. The Film pictures look magic. Same situation in digital looks so technical, so “cold”. I´m always impressed to see how big the gap is.
