Can you tell an Analog from a Digital recording?

You know we spent a lot of time and many paragraphs about analog recording vs digital, and how ribbon microphones are able to put "a dose of analog" back into digital recordings.

Well the exact same thing seems to be true about images! If you use an instant film like this Fuji color print film, you will regain that film-nearness that we had for so many years, even when scanned in and posted on the internet as a jpeg.

There are millions of old Polaroid cameras out there that this film fits in. If you have one, I suggest you pick up a pack on Amazon and give analog imaging another look.

Can you tell the difference between analog and digital?  See here and figure out which ones are analog, and which are not.

Not enough? How about this!
