When I was travelling, I tried to compare the photos taken by a digital camera and an original film camera, specifically an LC-A+. Why don't we play a little game by guessing which photos were taken by which camera? It's a face-off between the old and new!
This is taken by digital camera.
The film is fujichrome100 sensia
See! It’s easy to tell the difference! I know there are too many application- softwares can change your photos into a Lomo-style, but film shot with different ISO can get a totally different result, how can this can be replaced by just only an application-software?
The upper left corner︰64 TYPEII, the lower right corner︰CT PRECISAAGFA (E TO C)
These two are quite similar, but it is not difficult to guess.
Left︰KODAK ISO 200
You can get the answer without telling.
Upper part︰Lomo redscale 100
Quite similar, but not a difficult one.
Lower left︰Lomo Slide X-PRO 200 Lower right︰kodak Iso 200
These two have to take you some time.
The lower part︰pro 160s fujifilm
The film with a saturated colour, you can identify it easily!
Upper left︰64T TYPE II FUJIFILM (E TO C) Upper right︰CT PRECISAAGFA (E TO C)
right︰CT PRECISAAGFA (E TO C)
(In fact in the original article, it was left, but I think it was just a typing mistake)
No doubt about it…
Left︰CT PRECISAAGFA (E TO C)
It’s the same film, it is impossible if you can’t guess it!
Right︰CT PRECISAAGFA (E TO C)
The more simpler one, the more difficult one…
Left︰Agfa Iso 400
You look more adorable by taking you with film….
Still I need to explain it?
Right︰Lomo redscale 100
Left or right?
Left︰Agfa Vista 200
Still I have to explain?
Left︰AGFA CT 100PRECISA (E TO C)
These two are a bit difficult…
I have to say, the digital cameras are convenient, you can look at your result immediately, you can even take another one if your last photo didn’t take well, until you get the perfect angle, perfect lighting.
In fact, I love FILMS, but I can’t ignore the advantages of the digital cameras. I never want to change your mind and views on the digital photos and the original one, I just want you to know, using different films and cameras under different weather and exposure time, you can get the photos which are totally different from what you have seen! Love films, love every excitement!
The only thing I can say is, FILMSNEVERDIE! The Future Is Analogue!

Mid Autumn Festival that Changes with Time I can still recall, when I was still a child, Mid-Autumn Festival is the same as Lunar New Year. It is a festival that you can what you do! (Unfortunately, Christmas from the Western world doesn't have this privilege!)

The Magic Yet To Come: Part 1 Here’s a random and rather mysterious tale for you folks. Just the other day, I was at a local bar with a few friends. It was much like any other evening; we were sipping a couple of cocktails, recounting our adventures, falling over ourselves with laughter and half-drunkenly meditating on the meaning of life (a scientist once told me it’s 42 by the way). But then something truly strange happened. Read on to hear my story and please make a comment with your guess at the end!
