A Look at How Digital Cameras Lose Their Value Compared to Film Bodies

If you’ve even decided to click on this article then you’re probably aware of some of the frustrations some of your fellow photographers feel. Let’s preface this: four or five years ago you may have purchased a Fujifilm X Pro 1. Last year it was updated, giving it a sufficient four year life span. Now you want to upgrade, and you’re finding they’re still going for at a ridiculously low price brand new and only a few hundred used. But the newer cameras like the Fujifilm X Pro 2 costs around $1,699. Fujifilm isn’t exclusive to this: so too is Sony and the Micro Four Thirds coalition.

Now if you look at some of the film camera bodies, you’ll start to realize just how well they hold their value–especially if the system is still current.

These days, it’s not uncommon to see timelapse videos shot with just still cameras; but it was very uncommon to see it back in 1997 and done with the Nikon F5. A vintage ad (yes, because the 90s are vintage), this commercial was shot in 1997 by Alastair Thain using the Nikon F5 camera! According to the YouTube description, this was the first time a stills camera had ever been used to shoot “moving images”. More than 200 rolls of 35mm film were developed for the commercial, in rolls of 36 shots each. These were spliced, graded for colour, and edited.

Review: Sigma 12-24mm f4 DG HSM Art (Canon EF)

When you think about where Sigma was in 2011, you wouldn’t at all have thought the company would produce a lens like the Sigma 12-24mm f4 DG HSM Art lens( $1,599.00 ). In a time where the digital photography world is all about just cranking out product after product, it’s also incredible to see just how well Sigma lenses hold their value after aging for a number of years. With the Sigma 12-24mm f4 DG HSM Art lens, you get a constant F4 aperture, a bit of weather sealing, a pretty good build quality overall despite heaviness, and really good image quality.
