I couldn't sleep so I got up and out for the sunrise at Langdale Park. I wanted to test some Kodak Ektar film, which I've never shot before, because I recently got in a debate about whether it had magenta-hued shadows in some shots I saw posted. I took some shots with my freshly serviced D800E to compare.
Here's the Ektar shots first, taken with a Mamiya 645 and 45mm f/2.8 or 80mm f/1.9 lenses:
It is my opinion that the shadows in these shots did have a slight magenta and/or red tint, but only slight, which in fact was often helpful to warm up the early morning shadows. I really like the film, and it is nicely saturated, but still with the low-contrast, high dynamic range look of negative film. This might become my favorite color negative film for general usage (not people though).
For comparison, here are some digital shots, taken with either a 28mm f/2.8 AIS lens or 50mm f/1.2 AIS. Pay special attention to the first two, which are identical shots to the first two from the Mamiya above:
There is no question the D800E resolves better than the 6x4.5 negatives (though Ektar seems to not be as high resolution a film as some others, like Provia). Either way, the shots have a much different "feel" to them on film, which I like.
