Digital and Film Comparison – Red Wheelbarrow

Here is a picture taken with my 10.1 megapixel Canon Digital Rebel DSLR from my car window. It’s unaltered. I think it’s terrible.

Here is a picture taken a few seconds earlier of the same thing from the same location but with a Pentax Program Plus film camera (an SLR) on Kodak Gold 400 film (developed next to my sink).

Not much to say about it. The Canon takes good pictures every now and then, though. But the colours are always at least a little bit wrong. Actually, they’re almost always pretty terrible.

Also, this is a Red Wheelbarrow – just like the poem.
