Cross-Post from Aboud Dweck's "Everything Photo" Blog

Aboud Dweck, author of the great photography blog
and I went out for dim sum and a little shooting and catching up yesterday.
While Aboud shot his new Lumix DMC-GH2, I brought out my Rolleiflex T twin lens reflex and shot my first two rolls of film for 2012. Maybe that's why I look a little old and confused in the image above.
Aboud's post on his blog describes the minor differences in shooting 120 film with a TLR and modern digital photography with the GH2.

I am praying that I have at least one great shot out of 16 or so I shot on the Rollei. More likely, I will simply prove that the expense and hassle of shooting film provides inferior results to the latest in digital technology. But, I must admit it was a blast to shoot that old camera again. And, you can't compare an EVF or LCD to the image on that ground glass in the Rolleiflex.
Thanks for a great day, Aboud. We'll have to get out again soon.
