Film is a way of chemically capturing motion pictures as a series of still images on a backing coated with an emulsion containing light-sensitive silver halide salts. Video is a technology used to electronically record moving pictures on magnetic tape or other media.
|Appearance||smooth, soft edges, ‘organic’, grainy, extremely high effective resolution - scales well on very large displays||sharp, images are divided into pixels, giving them a fixed resolution - scaling will introduce artifacts|
|Frame rate||24 fps||30 fps (NTSC), 25 fps (PAL)|
|Dynamic range||high - details in scenes that range from bright sunlight to dark shadows are captured better||low|
