Resources & Equipment

Digital 

Whilst high end Canon 50 mp digital is the primary workhorse these days with the option of shooting tethered to a laptop for client interaction and  supported by a line up of contemporary high end lenses including specialist technical tilt shift lenses.

 

Traditional FIlm

The quality and characteristics of film are going through a comeback, Whilst digital offers unsurpassed commercial benefits for speed and efficiency the nostalgic feel of film and its non linear characteristics coupled with modern scanning and high end digital print are a great combination and becoming more prominent in the fine art scene. Neil offers projects shot with film (E6 slide & Negative) on 35mm, medium and large formats which he scans to high resolution via Epson 850 pro scanner.

In terms of quality compared to digital and dependent on a few technical  criterias from Neils own findings (and opinion)  having used film for 30 years (with a couple of stop gaps along the way)  the following results can be expected as a loose guide in comparison to digital. 

35mm is comparable to 8-10mp digital,

Medium Format 12-30mp digital equivalent

Large Format: 5x4 30-80 mp

Large Format 10x8 50-200 mp
