Bring your film in and have them scan it while they run it. Or the other way
I bring my stuff into a place called Photocraft here in Portland and get
each shot on the whole roll scanned to produce a 300dpi 8x10 16mg file for
15 bucks with my professional discount. I think that's a 20mg tiff file. I
think I save five bucks with the pro discount.

As far as I'm concerned my Leica M's, Hasselblads and Rolleiflex 2.8 F all
are digital cameras. As I'm doing digital photography with them.
