Depth of Field

Depth of field is easy with a film camera and a fast prime lens, and tricky to get with digital cameras – most have small image sensors, slow zoom lenses and image stabilization. One of the reasons I bought my Pentax MX-1 was that it has a large, relatively fast (f/2.8) zoom lens and a larger sensor than my trusty point-and-shoot digital camera. Shots like this show how close digital has come to film photography. I’m still not ready to get rid of the case of film in my freezer, though…
