Can You Tell The Difference Between A Digital Picture And Film?

Film is better! No question, right? Well Shanks FX wants you to take a closer look at pictures and footage taken on film versus images and footage taken with a digital camera. As much of a copout as it is to say, I think the answer is it depends.

Shanks FX used a Canon 5D (full sensor) digital camera and a Canon 7E (35mm) film camera to grab the images and put them side by side for you to judge. Sometimes the film camera looks rich and awesome but other times it seems flat and oversaturated. Digital cameras can look great too but sometimes seems a little lacking. What’s your take?
