Analogue photography

Does anyone else still do it?

I have a digital camera, but nothing is as good as a decent SLR, and teh digital ones are firmly out of my reach. I've also ordered myself a wide-angle lense, so I shall be having a play with that in a few days I hope

On another note - is it possible to get my film onto a photo CD when it is developed? I think it is but I am not sure.

Here are some pics of my toys

Have you ever developed a colour flim yourself?

It's actually quite easy and doesn't require any expensive equipment.

Only draw back is that you need to develop a good number of films at a time, to avoid wastage of chemicals.

Use slide film (positive) then you can just scan the film to you PC. No real need for any traditional printing....

Ihaven't developed film myself before, but I will have to consider it when the shops stop developing 35mm, which seems like it will happen pretty soon.

However, if I can scan the film myself, then surely the shop can also scan it for me, since I don't own a scanner.

I'm resonably sure most print shops offer that service.

Tried this place?

Thanks for the link danrok.

I will have to enquire at my local shops to see what they can do, as the 1536 x 1024 resolution they quote for 35mm seems a little low to me.

I would see if you can source an enlarger and do it yourself. If your gonna develop your own film, I feel you might as well go the full hog. Developing your own pictures is a LOT of fun and not too difficult, as long as theres a small room you can black out - or a shed. In Hove, some people use their beach huts as dark rooms. They take a picture, and 20 min later it's been developed and sold.
