    Film and developing is less than $20 - film is $5 and developing is $15. Get a second-hand F80 - won't regret it.

    Like NW75 said... you really don't understand photography nor appreciate the beauty of it.

    if u dont mind the extra work of bringing film to develop , collecting it and not knowing if it turns out well...yeah you should get a film SLR. I think film is great for hobby.

    anyway, film cost about 3-5 dollars per roll since you are so lazy to find out. in addition, the cheaper workflow is to develop and scan to CD. Some shops let you do that. Total cost of everything is $4(film)+$3(developing)+$2.50(scan to CD)= $9.50 for 36 exposures.

    You might want to do slides. Breakdown is like this: Slides $9 + Developing at Ruby's $4 without mounting = $13. Mounts are $7 for 100 pieces if i m not wrong.

    Then again, you might wanna do your own black and white developing. Breakdown is like this: Black and White film $5 or Bulk Rolled ones ($2.50) , Chemicals cost about $30-40 dollars but can last you at least 20-30 rolls, Bulk Roller ($50), Developing Tank ($25) + miscellenous beakers/measuring cylinders/thermometer $20.

    End of the day. Work + Time input + Learning curve surely exceeds the amount of input in digital workflow which is done mostly on Photoshop. But the rewards are satisfaction of seeing your slides on the light box, developing your black and white prints, and lastly, you have REAL PHYSICAL RAW IMAGES that you can physically keep unlike digital file formats.

    okay with this inputs, now i think you can do the math for yourself, lazzy boy.

    F6 is S$3300 only. Add a Nikon Coolscan 5000ED for S$2800 and you get a system that is capable of getting better quality photos than D2X without any crop factor and cheaper than D2X.

    BUY BUY BUY!

    anw with regards to your first statement, i was thinking of use Dslr test settings first ( eg. noght scene) than use slr same setting take - blow up to 8R
