Re: Exposure Latitude

All I can add is that 120 and 35mm film are cut from the same emulsion stock, so # photo sensors per unit area is a constant.

Re: Fancy taking photos with a 90 year old camera

If I was going down the DSLR route I'd ditch the notion of zoom lens and kit-up with fast primes. Know what you're talking about with the D850, having tried one in the showroom.

Re: Ralph Gibson: an exhibition of his work

Gibson talks about having an epiphany, being able to identify his PoD for the construct of the dream reality so apparent in much of his work, eg the Somnambulist. I've tried copying his style but the...
