For me the cost of most consideration = time
Scanning (for me) felt like forever.

And I never did find a scanner
which gave me what was on the film.

My first foray into digital
was drum scans
of my 4x5 or 120 transparencies
for use in my design work.
Kind of spoils you for digital image quality.
I went through 4 scanners
trying to approach the drum scans.
None ever did.

Digital capture
does approach the quality of drum scans
and in a fraction of the time
of purchasing film
processing film
and scanning film.

That said
I miss the darkroom.
I miss the negatives and transparencies.
But I don't have a choice.

I admire Alan's ability
to shoot digital for work
and film for personal.

Maybe in 2009 I'll be able to find a way
to do that.

Fond regards,
