Oh boy always such a war with this whole digital to film thing. I agree definitely didn't expect it to look exactly like film. I've been shooting a lot of film lately and my mom always has so I'm familiar with how it looks. There's no way digital could match it perfectly. Must be heartbreaking for photographers like you who have used it for so long to see it sort of dying out. Besides that though, playing around with colors and such trying to make It look like film is loads of fun. I'm bored of seeing dslr photos where the blacks are perfectly black and whites are perfectly white. It's fun to play around and have fun with editing.
I'd love to hear what you have to say about this video shot on a 5D but made to look like film. I was freaking out when I saw it lol https://vimeo.com/m/70481100 hate how quickly it's cut though.
But those glasses though are definitely something haha
