    I'm shooting slides. Have my F90X for shooting slides and B+w negatives. Basically I still think that slides and b+w negatives still win over the best DSLRs... I still feel that digital cannot win over b+w negatives, in term of its tone. For color photos, I'll stick to digitals.

    I did up a price list for those who might want to contribute to it when you buy some slide film.

    I have yet to use Ruby Photo's new service for E6 processing after they changed their external provider from Spectra to Retro*** forgotten what name. As listed in my list there, those are the prices and if anyone know of any other places for processing, please do help the input as it serve to update for everyone to see.

    started out SLR with a DSLR [D70] and before this a nikon cp5700 digital.
    After that got a F75 and then later a F80. Fell in love with slides after i got a nikon scanner to salvage some slides taken in southAfrica about 10yrs ago. The condition of those old slides was not ideal as i did not preserve them properly, just throw them inside some drawers and forgot about it. But after doing some ICE and grain enhancement thru the scanner, the outcome was: "omg!!, it is so beautiful..." those scenery shots taken in SA 10yrs ago revived on my computer screen. Those shots taken with some common compact P&S.

    Recently tried out a few rolls of velvia and provia after using sensia for a while. Fantastic!

    In terms of long term storage, now I really not sure whether digital has got an advantage. What do you guys think about this?

    I'm a DSLR user but interested in trying film and slides.
    Where/how do I start?
    I guess it's by purchasing equipment?
    Which is recommended?

    You can always scan the slides/negatives and digitize them, so I guess its around the same in terms of storage.

    Just go down to your local used camera store to have a feel of the price .Go for any Nikon or canon AF body from the 1990~2000 era plus a 28~105 zoom and you're in business.

    If you like/love the image you're looking at, get yourself a used slide projector too.

    If money is a concern , borrow any non DSLR for a day or two and go shoot whatever fancy you.You'll not be disappointed.

    try searching for a F80+grip on Buy/Sell. shld be able to get some decent ones ard $400.

    have fun! but, try with colour negatives first cos slides are a little more expensive to buy and process. also, not many places in singapore develop slide film anymore. lastly, slide films are NOT very forgiving to over/under-exposure.

    Got a question to ask here:

    if i want to take some film pictures, but i don't know whether my future usage will be print or scan, should i go for negative or slides? AFAIK, slides to prints are very expensive.

    Hmmm I also want to ask a similar question but I'll defintely be scanning first then if I want to print, print them from the digitals. So I was wondering if it would be better to mount or not mount them if I want to send them in for scanning?

    however, won't the print quality decreases after you scan the pictures?
