Film vs Digital Reason 5: Change between colour and B&W
As well as deciding what speed film to load into their camera, film photographers have to decide whether they want to produce black and white or colour images. There’s no such problem for digital camera users, a colour shot can easily be turned into a superb monochrome image and if you shoot raw and JPEG files simultaneously when the camera is set to black and white mode you get a full-colour image as well as a monochrome JPEG – the best of both worlds.
Film vs Digital Reason 6: Home processing
Although some enthusiast photographers used to have their own black and white darkroom for processing and printing, very few had a colour darkroom. Today, however, most digital photographers have all the tools they need to make sophisticated edits to their images; adjusting colour and contrast, making crops and adding borders and textures etc.
What’s more you can make prints at home or order prints from an on-line lab and share images in an instant.
