With the net, the world is smaller, your talking to people that probably have more experience then you do. (i.e. finished film course and have real
world application and knowledge in the matter. Not that it detracts from your knowledge, but the comment you made did seem to be conceited/arrogant,
or rather reflects the potential for you to write what could be seen as a biased post.)
Again, its all preference (depending on what angle you want to take on this whole film/digital debate.) Some will die and love film, and I do respect
Others will start and remain digital.
Im sure you have heard and red about the Red 4k digital film camera.
Yes I used film in there to make a point.
As you stated there is not digital film...but see, we cannot hold on to words so tightly and worship them as idols, so to speak. We much adapt and
allow them to adapt to the time and to where they point. (the finger pointing to the moon is not the moon.)
Sure its easy to be defensive over being misunderstood and even being talked down to as you pointed out in the post. No problem, dont take comments
seriously, not worth your energy. Communication is a tricky thing... especially in writing where you cannot 'feel' the emotion the person has with
what is being said.
I believe your point is that old films will never match the quality of HD.
This may well be true. The question is do they go beyond regular dvd in quality.
In that since, HD is nice to offer a higher spectrum to watch the old films in a higher quality than available before. - Now if you expect 'toto'
from the wizard of oz to be HD...then it may not happen.
As for film vs. digital...it really is down to the preference, and as I said, if you have the money for film transfers, then go for it. HD gives you
flexibility and cheaper cost.
(well, depending on how you look at it.)
While we are at it, we could go into how all HD is not HD. (consumer cameras vs. the pros.)
At the end, there is something for everyone. Thanks for your post.
