This is the first of new series of portraits shot on film.  For this one I used the Plaubel Makina 67 camera with Kodak Ektar 100 film

    Like 40-50 Megapixel ?

      Hello Andreas. Opinions vary about the real resolution of 6×7 film when compared to megapixels from a digital file. From my own experience I have found that a good 6×7 negative scanned with the Nikon Coolscan 9000, pretty much equals my Nikon D800E (36 megapixels). The X5 is a better scanner, so I think that 30 megapixels or even more is easy to get from Ektar (which is supposed to be a film emulsion specifically designed for scanning).
