I have never seen anyone photograph that I made with slide film looks as clear as this. This is the first time I used 35mm slide film since 2007ish and I'm quite astonished with the results. Back then I was using the first Nikon F100 I bought along with a cheap, $250 Nikon 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5D lens and looking at those images, those were pretty horrible. The images weren't sharp and it seemed the flaws of the lens magnified with the film. Over these past several years I finally made more money to buy better quality lenses and this shot I used a Nikon 50mm 1.4G lens, the cheapest of all my lenses and one of my favorites. The image quality of this film with these lenses nearly matches that of using digital. I was shocked when I first scanned this and saw the sharpness and clarity of it. I now see why this film is one of the professional photographer's choice of films.
For those that are wondering how I made a film shot into a digital image, this is how. I shoot the entire roll and when finish, if it's color slide, I send it to a processing lab near San Jose State University called Photo Express and if it's black and white film, I process it myself. After processing, I use a designated film scanner and scan at the highest resolution. And now I'm able to edit the images using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. It's pretty simple but very time consuming and expensive.
