Yes, pleas check with Eugene at Ruby Photo and let him know that you referenced by Simone.
a few questions, but where is ruby photo? how much does it cost? and is there a significant decrease of quality?

actually, if you think about it, it doesn't really make sense to do that, unless you die-die must use a slide projector or you're gonna preserve a negative for all eternity. even for preservation's sakes, you can still make multiple backups of a digital file and it'll still be cheaper.

i can't think of why else any1 would wanna convert digital to film.

aaahhhhh ok ok. but usually competitions don't just accept slides alone right? i mean, the submission norm is 8R prints. unless they stipulate no-manipulation, then you have to produce a original slide or negative (which is kinda silly IMHO - slides and negs can still be manipulated).

anyway, my kaypoh 2 cents worth. :D

wah... The way it looks, it's more economical to buy a film camera and take the photo........... I didn't know there were such rules.

A little OT here. Maybe still photographers won't convert, but film makers (movies) do it. Star Wars EP2 was done this way. Filmed on digital but when released to non-digital projection theaters they had to make a film print from the digital files.

Sometimes after editing a film which has been telecined and edited digitally, they normally do a film cut, literally cutting the developed film and sync-ing it to the audio track. Or do it the SW way.

there are still such rules, but from what i observe, more and more contests are allowing for digital prints to be submitted. previously they were mostly film-based.

so don't discount using a digital cam yet...
