Owning a D2Xs, D2X, D200, D70s, D70(Still prefer the D2X/s because of the ergonomics, balance,the viewfinder and the auto-focus; but all of these cameras have their good use), I have come to the end of my pixel-race. What a relief!

A few days ago I visited a photo-exhibition of a fine amateur club, showcasing their best work of the past one year. They were all very good photographs. But suddenly I realized thet the ones I was drawn most to were the ones shot in film. The digital prints were, how can I say, too "perfect".

So, on the way home I thought I should buy myself an F6, for film's sake, but of course I am set up for digital, and I don't have a lab anymore. Yes, I am one of the old guys. I love the smell of chemicals all over your body, developing prints in the lab, the feeling of film... I love b/w...

I didn't buy the F6, but what I did is I purchased "RealGrain" software. And I am so happy now - now wiht a click of a button I can shoot in Velvla, Agfa Optima Prestige, Fujicolor, Fujichrome, Kodak Porta, ektachrome...Neopan, Ilford Delta, FP4, my BELOVED HP5, XP2, Kodak Tri-Max.... and so on.

So, in a sense, I am back to film. Back to grain. I don't care anymore about a few pixels more or less. I am relieved and happy. Now I can shoot in Ilford HP5 b/w and Kodachrome and Velvla 50... welcome to the digital film world!
