Cragside November 2018 ~ Rolleiflex SL35

As well as my fuji, I took the Rolleiflex SL35 out with me to Cragside to finish off a roll of Kodak Portra I had in it. Unfortunately the roll jammed at frame 20, but I managed to save the film and got 7 shots out of it.

The pictures are similar to the digital ones over on the Fraggle blogwhich is fun to compare. Not sure which I like best, the digital or the film versions! What do you think?

  1. I’m almost sad to say it, but I think digital won this time, FR. The creaminess of the film is there to see, but the shots lack the impact of the previous series for me.
    Best wishes, Pete.

      1. I surprised myself! Perhaps I am finally getting into the 20th century? The 21st will have to wait a while… 🙂

  2. Amazing photos, for a moment I was thinking it was your previous SL66. I think I like both versions for different reasons. Film ones have a kind mood and the digital are quite immersive in the details of the landscapes. So I choose… both! xD

  3. I like the film ones more. I do think that they have a weakness though, and I think that is the fact that film has issues with shade or generally scenes that are both dark and bright.

    1. Yes I agree, sometimes it’s a choice to blow out the sky or lose the detail in the shade!

  6. They are quite different aren’t they! Portra tends to be a bit muted anyway, I wonder how they would have looked in something like Ektar or even Fuji 200? Lenses have their own personalities too…

    1. I use Fuji 200 more often, (cheaper!) but had a few rolls of portra to try out. Cheers for visiting!
