Well I did my test I said I was going to do. I got the last roll of old 160VC from the store along with a roll of Reala. I got my other roll I had of 100UC ready along with the new Portra 160VC. My idea was to see how the resolution, grain, and color would compare against the old 160VC and the new 160VC. But I also wanted to see how the grain of 100UC would be against 160VC. And since Reala is a favorite- I through that in the test. But my main desire was to see how 35mm film would compare in terms of resolution and detail against my Rebel XTI 10 megapixel SLR camera. So I had a day off from the lab and took all 5 cameras out for an afternoon shoot. I later got the rolls developed with no prints. I scanned all those rolls here at home on my 3200dpi Minolta Scan Dual 4. I did some color changes on each roll since each film had a severe color cast with some shots. But you will notice they are not matched to each other. I was just trying to get things in the ballpark. I wasn't too concerned about color quality and contrast differences on most shots. I left contrast as per the scan and did no sharpenning on any of these shots- including the digital files. The easiest and most accurate film to scan with little changes was the new Portra 160VC. 100UC seemed to go magenta, while Reala was very cyan green. The Reala roll was overexposed compared to the other rolls, as I think my one camera is out. I shot everything at f8 on all cameras. I left shutter speeds up to the camera itself. The cameras in use were a Elan 7, 1N-HS, AE-1, and FT- B. I used a 50mm lens on all 35mm cameras. The Rebel XTi I resorted to using my 17-40L zoom to get the camera in the 31mm range. I very much doubt the 17- 40L is much sharper then my prime 50mm lenses. The Elan 7 and 1N-HS shared the same 50mm 1.8 lens, while the FT-b used the FD 50mm 1.8 and the AE-1 used the FD 50mm 1.4 lens. I had my tripod with me for the shots, but only 3 cameras had a base plate to use with the tripod. The other 2 cameras I just rested on the head. This shows up with a shot or two with movement. The day was very overcast. I just couldn't get any sun to do this, but being the films they were (other then Reala), they are good with flat lighting. The film that had the most color was not 100UC, but the new Portra 160VC. 100UC was very sharp. SO here are my samples and take a look for yourself. After seeing these results, Im convinced my 10 megapixels SLR had more resolution then 35mm film. Plus the images are cleaner with no grain. I'll still use film, but after all this I will be using my Rebel XTi more often. Here's the first pic full frame.
