    i recently acquired a Canon Canonflex RM film SLR [~1962] in working condition, and decided to put it to the test against my other camera, an iPhone 4S. i mainly wanted to do this because i see alot of smartphones trying to mimic film photography.

    here's the links to the photos, tell me what you guys think/observe about the differences.

    Heck, I didn't even know that film was still sold..(laughing)...I think my last film SLR was a Canon EOS Rebel II in the early 90's.

    didn't feel like starting a new thread....but here's some shots of the same thing taken by different photographers....:

    film photo: [cross processed]


    i didn't realize how closely iphones can mimic film cameras. also, i posted this to promote the idea of social photowalks with other iphoneographers. we are all look at the same thing...but we each have a different perspective.

    I think the lens differences didn't do much to show any similarities and discredited many differences. I'd recommended dropping the wide angle on the iPhone or shooting wider on the SLR. Also, give VSCO Cam a shot. Where these unprocessed mostly?

    Do you process your own film or use a lab? What film did you use?

    yeah true. i don't think i'll do another iphone vs film project though....i'll only compare it with other shots of the same thing taken by different photographers. i'm just too lazy to take the same photo twice. and yeah, the shots were unprocessed.

    i don't process my own film YET. mainly because i can't bring myself to do black & white..nothing wrong with the medium, its just that i used to be a painter and i LOVE color.

    also, the original post...i used expired Fuji Superia 200. and the most recent image i posted of the bikes in front of the fountain was cross processed Kodak Ektachrome E100G.
