There is another Digital vs Film.

Believe it or not, those were taken at the same time. What’s the difference…….

Maybe, the first “Digital image” looks clearer and sharper. So, as a document, the digital one looks better.

At the same time, film image (bottom) really look like evening compare to the digital one. The film was Ektachrome 100.

Seems like CONTAX Tvs2 exaggerate the color especially in evening. This is what we call “Carl Zeiss lens are good liar…..”

Tell the truth, the color of Tvs digital looks closer to the real color I saw at that time.

But, at the same time, the color of Tvs2 looks more likely to be “evening”.

It is very hard to say which is better….but I prefer to be CONTAX Tvs2 image.

By the way, CONTAX used to sell A2 filter to reduce the color shifting in evening. Although I have it….but I don’t use it because I think it will kill the character of the lens.

By the way, the film image does not look very sharp because of the quality of film scanner I am using.
