The difference is film has no chance competing with a D700 at high ISO. I believe that would be 13 seconds. I remember shooting Northern Lights in Canada back in the early 80s on Kodachrome 64 and a Pentax LX and 50mm 1.4. I think the exposure - picked by the camera reading off the film (the LX was one of the first to read ambient exposures reflected off film) - was about 30 seconds.

After a short walk through the marshes they spotted a HUGE moose 150 metres away. The engineer raised his gun and fired at the moose. A puff of dust showed that the bullet landed 3 metres to the right of the moose. The physicist, realizing that there was a substantial breeze that the engineer did not account for, aimed to the left of the moose and fired. The bullet landed 3 metres to the left of the moose. The statistician jumped up and down and screamed "We got him! We got him!"
