Digital Vs Analog

Discussion in 'Channel Zero' started by imported_Tesseract, Aug 31, 2003.

  1. Its been a while since i used a normal film camera and i really cant say i missed it. The digi is definatelly the way to go, especially when you take in concideration just how more advanced and sofisticated they become year by year. However, what i found lame from the start about my digi, reminded me some stuff about using a simple mechanical tool. The thing is that all SONY's have that stupid shutter sound that plays whenever you take a flick. Its a weakass shutter sound that has absolutely no reason to exist. It seems like Sony did it to make their digi's more 'cameras'. Unfortunatelly it seems like, at this point, theres a huge difference between the two. These last 5 days that i was on the road and camping wherever i could i used a manual camera, the feeling of a solid piece of metal that cant get broken or have more than 1 'sensitive' parts is just dope, the feeling that you're not depended on a power socket and a battery is also dope..and above all...Theres nothing like the sound the Shutter makes when you shoot at a high speed and feel that slight kick in the camera.

    I wont go on and list the advantaged of a digi, or even turn this into a real debate cause the answer is clear,
    digital is better,
    analog is hardcore,
    Sony needs to lose the fake shutter sound
    and i just disabled all sound from my digi.

    Although I've never owned a digital, I love the feel of a SLR. Its kind of like having a old car that you work on yourself and know all the ins and outs of.

    Wow this thread is really going nowhere. I swear the intelligence level of the people that frequent this board must be borderline retarded.

    To contribute to the post Mr. Tess, I would have to say that personally I like digital better. Its more cost effective and 'printing/editing' is much easier on Photoshop if you want to for instance crop/lighten/darken,etc... You don't have to pay for rolls and developing/darkroom, you don't have to mess around with chemicals and print shit out yourself, (although handprinting photos is pretty involving and fun). I myself find that I'm not patient or methodical enough to really get into hand printing stuff, although I have on occasion.

    On the other hand analog work just LOOKS better, it gets more respect, and it is hand-made which requires more diligence, patience, craft, artistry, skill, ETC...... Hand printing and color processing prints looks better than any computer/printer. Traditional black & white and color prints tend to have more character because you know someone took the time to find the right time/aperture/shutter in taking the picture as well as dicovering and setting the correct printing time as well as dodging, cropping, double exposure, etc... Hand printing is much more difficult than photoshop editing (once you learn how to use photoshop), and a hand printed photo always will look better than a picture on a computer screen.

    Its like comparing vinyl records to mp3's.. Its much easier to aquire millions of mp3's (and they're free) but collecting and finding records is pretty awesome and plus records just sound better. It all depends on your personal opinion, I myself only take digital now because I don't have access to a darkroom and I am LAZY, but I do enjoy and respect hand printed photography.

    fuji has the fake sound too
    toshiba has a real sound.

    i wouldnt say it's pointless, it does let you know you took the flick instead of looking at the screen each time.
