I always preferred slide film over print film, and loved some film types particularly. Agfa Scala, though expensive, was one of the single best reasons to shoot film. I loved that film, and working down the road from the only lab in the UK who were able to process it meant I could drop it in on my way to work and collect it at lunch time.

I still use and enjoy film today. By and large this is black and white print film though. Simple to develop yourself, and then you can just scan the negatives and carry on with a digital workflow. I love the look of film. This for me is where the future of film lies. Black and white still has a distinctive look and popular appeal. I think the fine art market particularly will thrive.

For colour, I just use digital, and if it were a paying job then digital all the way.

You will.

I use my 300D regularly at my favourite site every Wednesday. I seldom take more than a dozen images. Most of which appear on my favourite F*c*b**k website by the time the evening comes. Which is why I use the digicam.

For a real treat at other times I take one of my favourite film SLRs out Grin

I still haven't finished the film, I'm taking a while aren't I? Been told Peak Imaging can develop them.

Make sure you get a disk with the photos on them - will save you scanning. Smile
