Digital v Film - Under the Lens at Bolton Institute -
Bolton Institute's Photography Department, together with Leeds Photovisual and Kodak, will be hosting a free demonstration to explore the pros and cons of digital photography. Three identical seminars will be held on Tuesday 16th April at 10am, 2pm and 6pm. The events are free and all are welcome.
During the seminar, tests will be carried out comparing Kodak's latest digital cameras with their film equivalents. Staff from Bolton Institute will also give a digital imaging presentation.
For years photographers have speculated over industry claims that the digital camera will out-perform the film cameras professionals have used since photography's earliest days. Some experts say that time has now arrived and digital can prove its critics wrong. These seminars will investigate that claim.
Dave Clark, Pathway Leader for Photography and Video at the Institute
"Digital photography is at a very interesting point in development. Many professional photographers are confused as to the benefits of the new media with one main concern - is it as good as the film cameras they are currently using?
Up until now, there have been many claims on the quality of new cameras but we do not know of anyone who has ever made a direct comparison to film. The aim of the seminars is quite simple; we will take the same photographs on film and on digital cameras and then put the results side by side. "
Places are free but limited. To book a place please call Leeds Photovisual on 0161 274 4455.
