Irving Penn at work, using an 8 x 10 inch Deardorff camera and a battery of studiolamps to make the still life above. He exposed the scene for 28 seconds at f 45. He had to use a magenta filter to compensate for the long exposure. Our 'remake' took 1/20 of a second (daylight and halogen). The 'film' we used was as big as 23,5 x 15,7 mm, 12 mp. And maybe we took it with the same Schneider-lens...

This reminds us of the most astonishing sentences in The Story of Kodak, a book by Douglas Collins:

'Between these two positions lies the question of whether Kodak should aggressively enter the business of electronic image making. Simply put, will video render silver-halide photography a quaint, antique way of making pictures? Kodak analysts think not.'

We all know the answer now.
