Some have asked, and some have questioned, about my recent change in blogging style and I decided to fit it into my first Thursday Tech Talk column. Rather than having technology, I am taking a step backward and removing a huge chunk of technology for one of my favourite hobbies.
Photography has always been an interest of mine and I have gone through a whole gamut of digital cameras. So, my recent jump to a film SLR, the Nikon FE (pictured above) surprised quite a few. It also created a whole argument on Twitter as to whether there was any advantages stepping backwards.
Truth be told, the digital platform for photography is leaps and bounds better than film. You get to view your pictures instantly, you can shoot thousands of shots without much worry, all the settings can be done with the camera and you get a clean image at the end of the day.
The only advantage I can think of with film, is that you are using the dedicated black and white films. That way, you are definitely capturing a better black and white shot than digital cameras. Other than that, my jump “backward” is well, because I can.
Here is to me visiting FotoSun in SS2 more :) Oh, and after reading all that, if you don’t know why the change, because I can’t afford to shoot so many rolls of film to fill this blog up with photographic content :P
