My first 120 film returns

I don’t know what to say.

In comparison to my Canon 35mm film camera, the quality is, well, gobsmacking! And the files are smaller by a few megabytes too – more on that in another post. But for now, I am drinking in that bokeh and adoring the lack of noise and artifacts in this scan.

Zooming in several factors doesn’t even reveal discernable pixel uniformity and that is the beauty of the film. You never feel that an algorithm has taken over to choose a colour for each pixel in order to maintain a shape. The scanner is as entirely faithful as it can be to the beauty of the chemical process of the development of the film and the result is a beautiful image that just makes you feel part of the scene or moment in which the shot was taken.

I am hooked.
