Film v. Digital and Fifteen Years Apart: The New York cityscape changes
Peter Walker, writing at PetaPixel, has shown us two fascinating images of New York. The one he took in 2001 with his Hasselblad; the second in 2016 with his Leica SL. There's no disputing his conclusion that the latest Leica mirrorless camera has surpassed the scanned 6x6cm medium format transparency in terms of resolution, colour and punch. But what I find particularly fascinating about his shots is the presence, in 2001, of the Twin Towers and their notable absence in 2016. So much has changed but, equally, so much has remained.
