Mamiya Vs Nikon

Mamiya RZ67 ProII vs Nikon D3X 
Almost a month ago I  did a shoot with Laura Kate Rzemieniecka where I could take enough time to use two different formats of camera and media. 

If you ask me, I like negative film and I love shooting with my Mamiya. 
However the digital era we are living in now requires fast workflow not to mention some clients would like to see 20 options of each outfit or look to choose from, so digital photography is somehow inevitable, but that doesn't mean the film is dead. 
Call me old fashioned but if someone was covering all my expenses and the clients had the patience to wait for processing and scanning I'd use film for everything except the LookBooks.

Lens: Mamiya Sekor - Z 127mm 1:3.8
