    Default what you guys usually do during developing ?

    Hi guys,

    I been doing quite alot of flim/slide developing lately.
    A question pops up and i cant help but starts pondering.

    what you guys usually do during developing ?

    1) Developing with all the prints print out ?
    2) Developing with index print only ?
    3) Developing and scanning to CD only ?
    4) All of the above ?

    I am still deciding what to be my routine of developing.

    I usually do all of the above.
    For me , I feel that only with all the prints printed out, then can you really see which pic is nicer, which got flaw, etc. Then consider to enlarge them. And if I wanna post on cs or my blog, i got digitise it, thus the scanning portion.

    What you guys usually do ?

    Depends on the type of film i developing..

    if 135 slides - develop + mount (not often) + scan at home
    if negs - develop + scan at home
    if bnw - develop at home + scan at home
    if 120 slides - develop at shop + scan at shop

    I seldom print out everything, very ex leh

    but without printing out everything, can you really tell which pic is good ?
    cos i tried b4, seeing a printed copy and wats on the monitor can be so different.
    anyway wat scanner u using ? maybe getting my own scanner will be a much more cost-efficient avenue.

    I develop very few prints.
    When I do, I usually find that chatting up a beautiful girl within a radius of 15 meters is quite productive .... hahaha

    Actually she is not often more than 15 meters from me anyway...this is not a big unit/condo

    Cheers

    Hi there, I am a film user too. There is something film can capture that digital cameras ain't able to. I can't really put my finger to it. Oh yea, my usual practice is to get the shop to scan for me when i develop the film... Now i am looking for a small scanner to buy, to save some $$$ in the long run.

    Try Nikon Coolscan series or Konica Minolta Scan series. KM series is best value for money!

    B&W negative films: develop and contact print.
    Color negative films: develop and 4"x6" prints or develop and contact print.
    Slide films: develop only.

    I shoot a lot of digital lately, so I don't have to deal with film anymore.. No more thinking whether to print them or just scan them. If I were to just scan them, might as well just shoot it straight on digital.

    I used to just print them on 4R and make scans from the 4R print if I need to show anything digital. But those were the days when computers were slow and scanners are expensive and not all labs do film scans.

    Don't shoot film nowadays. When I was younger:

    Slides - Develop only.
    B&W - contact print, then print those I like larger
    Color Negs - print 4R, and conveniently forget about them :P
