Amin has his reasons and they are important to him and that's the main thing.

Totally agree. Good luck Amin. I have enjoyed your images in the past, hopefully you will still post the occasional one once you get the scanning side sorted.

Late to this discussion and little to add that George has not already said. I just shot my first film in 20 years, but it was 645, the minimum I would consider is worth doing as a step up from digital. And that's only because I cannot afford the equivalent digital setup, not because film is somehow "better". In fact film is so much more limiting in so many ways.

It is possible to limit oneself and think through photography from basic principles with digital. Just mounting a manual lens helps.
Listen to my albums free on BandCamp. Or visit my main website for links to photography, etc.

Chris thanks for this.
That came very handy, ordering a few of those rolls.

Kris, you forgot to post me the film you offered me

No probs. Note the expiry date - if you want to keep it for a bit, in the fridge would probably be an idea.

I should probably declare my slight vested interest in you not using Kodachrome, of course

Not forgotten, just a very manic week at the start of term...

I'll get it in the post when I get the chance. K.

Chris, not to worry, our deal is sealed. When I use kodachrome it will simply for prints

You'll only be able to use Kodachrome until the end of the year. Then it will be no more than a footnote in photographic history.

No, you misunderstand slightly - I probably haven't been clear.

I can scan Kodachrome. It's just a little more work to ensure the slide is dust free, that's all.

With tens of slides, that's of no consequence. I have thousands of negatives, though, so an extra half minute blowing the dust off would be significant.

With negs and slide films other than KC, ICE, the auto-dust-speck-cloner-outer works a treat.


Use whatever you feel like
