NO WAY! Been there, done that. It'd just be slide film, and I wouldhave it scanned, if anything. There was a time in my life I had both a black & white darkroom and a dedicated film scanner and I don't want either, ever again!
Yep - me too. But if anyone wants to know how to set a film and print darkroomup, let me know. And if you want to do color film, first provide me witha list of your local plumbers who can work out the much more exacting temperature control for water flow for developing color film and prints. I'll be happy to enlighten anyone on the cost of an enlarger with a color head rather than a B&W one. Also you'll need to get a list of contractors who can build a darkroom - it really does need to be dark.

Um, Photoshop and DSLRs are way less expensive. But that's just me...

Hi all,

I guess, I'll just go back to taking shots of birds with my dslr (the kind with wings-as if there was ever any doubt):?

But I do have this small area in the basement that would be perfect........... Hmmmm:?

Zig


Hi Bob,

No, I still haven't received the E30. Last I checked, they told me it's on back order, that it should ship by the end of the month.

that looks interesting. Also found another similar one, looks almost identical:

And here is an interesting summary of a scanner buying guide:

If anyone dips their toe in the water, let the rest of us know your results.

Hi, Steven

This process is just like the work I occasionally do, to digitize documents. The cost of the equipment is by far the smallest impediment. What's way worse is the time it takes to pull out the negatives or slides, and enter the metadata about each one when it's scanned. That tends to put a real damper on your enthusiasm for the process, even if you decide to spend the time to just scan the images you really like. It is extraordinarily time consuming if you have a lot of old film images.
