one of my favorite things about tri-x was how well it looked if you over 
exposed it, even by four or five stops, you could pull something beautiful 
and high contrast out of it. this, in my experience, wasn't easily 
recreatable in digital and i was always unhappy at how my nikon's dealt with 
blown highlights - maybe it's because i never learned to do a proper white 
balance. in any event, the gf-1 seems to to a slightly better job in dealing 
with over exposure -- i think this is probably about 2 stops over in some 
areas and one in most, but it seems pleasing to me.
