I was happy to see film go away. I don’t at all understand why anyone would get back into it. I’m all about the analog in drums, but film? Nah.I have a few friends who are beginning to dabble with 35mm film and, frankly, I don't miss it at all. As you know, scanning is the most critical step to acquiring a decent image for digital use (which is everything now).
I haven’t seen a drum scanner since I was in pre-press. I can’t imagine the time involved in mounting and drum scanning even a small library of 35mm transparencies. Great job for a daughter or intern!
