Hey guys, I realize this is the digital photography forum but I've seen film threads pop up from time to time. Anyways I recently acquired a film SLR with a handful of M42 lenses (a 135mm /2.8, 55mm /1.6, 50mm /1.7, etc.). So I was inclined to shoot on film! I waited a bit but in the check out at CVS/Pharmacy was Kodak 400 speed film just sitting there so i grabbed some. Anyways since then I've gone through a roll of Kodak Ektar 100, Fujifilm 200, Fujifilm 800 Supiera (sp?), etc. NOW I want to get these developed, its been a while since I shot film (and last time it was NOT with an SLR what so ever!) so I undoubtedly screwed up the first few shots on the first two rolls and I think I ruined half the roll of my first one (light + unexposed film out of roll = bad). However I took some interesting shoots with it and would like to get them developed, I want the images to be properly exposed, I wish I could do it myself (and fancy trying in the future) but most of the shots were metered well and I protected the shadows more than I would do with digital, I just want to get negatives back that are good enough that they won't need major surgery in Photoshop! So the negatives can be scanned into digital and I know places like Costco do this (I don't have a costco FYI here) but I want it to be the best quality, there is a place called the industrial color lab a couple miles from here but in terms of files I would like them in 16-bit TIFF's scanned at 6K or so, 3K minimum as I'm looking to be able to use them in lightroom like any other file...Is there any suggestions on what to ask for? Like scanner type? I know a little about scanners but not much. Instructions on handling or not handling the files prior to me receiving them? I don't want to settle for some 3000x2000px JPEGs what so ever. I'm not some resolution nazi I just like to start off with as much information as possible and the 4-6K range provides me with what I believe optimal resolution for digital reduction prints, and making good normal to large size prints. I'm a video editor so I sort of look as this whole thing as a "Digital Intermediate" process and Sorry in advance for the long winded message, did an engagement shoot today as an assistant photographer and was lugging two of my cameras around my neck + my backpack with my lenses and computer + my buddy's tripods and light stands with a bad back in cold weather! Builds character but needless to say I'm a bit tired. Location made the shoot worth the time.
