What is the benefit of projecting a modern movie on 35 or 70mm film?

I get how a digital restoration of an older film might destroy aspects of a 35/70mm film's look (grain and sharpness in particular) but if a film has already gone through a digital intermediate process shouldn't the DCP look just like the source the director/colorists were working with? What is the benefit of printing back to 35mm and projecting that? Ignoring aberrations like scratches, flicker or cigarette burns is there a difference in color, sharpness, anything of that sort which would make projecting on film preferable?

Making analogue photography viable

I like shooting 120 film, but due to the cost of processing and printing, I have about a dozen rolls that have been hanging around waiting for development. Is there a way for me to easily cut down the cost? [more inside]

What's wrong? jacking mic and headphones for Frankenstein headset

I really want to combine my headphones with my microphone so that I can use it as a headset on my home phone. So I got a 3.5mm splitter and a 3.5mm to 2.5mm adapter so that I can plug the mic and headset together, then reduce it to 2.5mm so it can plug into my phone. It doesn't work. Why?

How to run 20 feet of 3.5mm to RCA cabling?

What's the cheapest/simplest way for me to run sound from my iPod/laptop (3.5mm jack) to a stereo (RCA) about 20 feet away? If it were a shorter distance I'd just get a standard audio cable, but I'm worried that something like this will lose a lot of signal/fidelity. [more inside]

Where to mail 35mm film for developing?

Yes, it's true, there are still Luddites out here using 35mm film. The local concern which still develops films charges a queen's ransom to do so. Can anyone recommend a mail-in film developing lab which does good quality work, is reliable and is at least somewhat reasonable as far as price? (Costco in this area has stopped taking film...sigh). (can't think of any snowflakes to add).

LCD on a 35mm Film Camera?

Is there a 35mm film camera that also has an LCD? My mother likes the idea of looking at an LCD instead of using the view finder, but doesn't want to depart from the world of 35mm film! She just needs a point-and-shoot, nothing fancy (under ~$150). Does such a hybrid camera exist?

Holga Help?

I received this Holga camera as an early birthday present. It uses 120 size film.

Should I return it and get a 35 mm version? [more inside]
