Don't throw away those film camera just yet. Yesterday Fed Ex delivered my new Epson scanner. So I instal the software and hook up the scanner then go hunting for some negative to scan. I find a roll I shot that has some macro shots of flowers and a dozen shots of a little two year old boy who is now in high school. I load all 24 frames in the film holder set up the scan by selecting a few parameters click "scan" and then it's 11:00pm so I go to bed. The estimated time to complete is saying "245 minutes". This morning I look at the files. I have to say that I've got better results from these scans then I can get from my Nikon D50 DSLR. The color and sharpness are outstanding and of cource the resolution is much better. These images where shot 12 years ago using a Nikon N90 using Kodak Royal Gold ISO 100 film. The scans are about 28 megapixels The DSLR does great work and it's fast but the film scanner beats it. My longer term plan is to buy a 4x5 view camera and scan the 4x5 negs. I've been wanting to make 4 foot wide digital prints for years. Old Cambo 4x5 camera are selling to under $200 although good lens are not cheap.
