ive only gotten one roll of B/W developed at samys...i believe it was like $9 just to have them scan them onto a CD at their lowest res scan option. theyre still decent size around like 3000x2000 give or take. it gets more expensive the larger res you want. i dont think color was that much more expensive...

That's outrageous. They charge more for clicking a button to get higher resolution?

Not bad. I think I'm going to buy a film scanner and start scanning myself. It wont be long before I make my money back on the scanner. I have a bunch of undeveloped rolls sitting on my shelf...

There's more to it than just pressing a button.

I would imagine when determining resolution on a scanner it can't be more than selecting it from a menu. Enlighten me.

I can't speak for Samy's specifically, but a good photo lab will have different types of scanners. To get really high quality, high res scans, they need to be done on a drum scanner rather than the much more common CCD scanners. Drum scanners are huge and cost a fortune so chances are, photo labs (the good ones) only have one or two. That's one reason for an increased price.

On CCD scanners, it can take as long as 10x more time to scan the negatives at a high resolution vs lower resolutions. That extra time could be used to scan other negatives for other people - it's called opportunity cost. That's another reason for an increased price.

That makes sense.

^ That dog's face/expression has an almost human quality LOL.


Spent a few days in NYC last week with a Mamiya 6. The 1st is expired Portra 160VC (2005) pushed to 400. The 2nd is Ilford Delta 400:

I'm loving the Mamiya so far. I'd never shot with a proper rangefinder before...it's awesome!

^ Those portraits are nice!

I've found a local shop that has TONS of old film cameras for sale. Any suggestions on what to look for? I think I want something essentially all manual short of the light meter.
