    Great photos, one of the reasons for them looking good is the fact the film is 4" x 5" where as full frame DSLR like Canon EOS 5D has a sensor that is only 36 x 24 mm (that's a full frame for a 135 mm film) and most digital cameras have much smaller sensors. A film of that size can enlarged to huge sizes, it also means that all digital pictures are enlarged just to make them visible.
    A Kodachrome 36 x 24 mm transparency is equivalent to 20 megapixel so the digital world is catching up with the films that were manufactured about 60 years ago :p
