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 ?

:bsmilie: :bsmilie: :bsmilie:
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! :bsmilie: :bsmilie: :bsmilie:

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. ;p But those were the days when computers were slow and scanners are expensive and not all labs do film scans. ;p
