    Re: MFD 'the look' conundrum

    As someone that has shot 4x5", MF film and digital, and 35mm film and digital, there has always been a difference in the results so much so, I can distinguish what was shot with what gear just by looking at my film or files. Maybe to others that do not see a difference, it might be best left to vision science or ophthalmology, seriously. Some people can be tone deaf, maybe there is a similar thing with vision.

    14 images on the wall of various sizes (no correlation to sizes and format). 2 are film so I will throw those out, although she picked those correctly too. 8 are MFD, 4 are 135 format. None currently on the wall are stitched.

    12 possible outcomes, 50% chance on each image.
    0.5^12=0.02% chance.

    Damn. She's pretty good.
    So your wife can tell the MF prints from the other prints. That is not a scientifically valid double-blind study (pun intended), but is a strong indication that MF prints can be recognised by laypersons, hence are visually different.

    This seems very relevant to this discussion. Any chance you can post some of those images?

    To hell with all this..
    People who are really hell bent on proving MF is equal or worse than 135 format can put their money where their mouth is.
    I have the MF gear. PM me and I will send you my PayPal address.
    I promise I'll buy 135 Gear with the money you send.
    And thus, you'll prove your point when I realise my mistake.
    No? Then STFU ..

    I'm not sure it is all that relevant, I just thought it was a timely, curious if not funny story. But here they are in the context of the room. Sorry I didn't take any time with lighting; there is a lot of glare on some of the plexi. These images are from various shows and/or jobs so they don't all match with identical frames and glazing.

    A few notes:
    -The Death Valley image on the wood easel doesn't count; it was out of the room.
    -2 of these 3 images are MF, the other 135



    -This one is actually the largest print; 135


    -On the right wall: Middle one MF, bottom 2 film, top Left 135


    -The Brandenburg wolf doesn't count for obvious reasons!
    -The other two are MF


    -Top 2 135, bottom 2 MF


    She didn't get nose to print on any of these. The interesting thing was the first one she pointed out as being "better" was the single tree in the middle on the upper wall above the doors. That's the one that really stumps me because it is not a particularly big image (20x24 frame).
