What looks better... FILM or DIGITAL????


We may never know the answer to that question but here are some side by side comparisons of a Canon 5d (Full Sensor) digital camera and a Canon 7E (35mm) film camera.Please weigh in on the discussion and let us know what you think about the last frame, is it film or digital???
