    people who shoot film shoot film so this is no challenge, people who shoot digital found this too much of a challenge

    people who shoot both are far too busy

    just don't even bother taking this seriously

    Send me your film and I will scan it. It may not be economic for you to pay for postage there and back (and send a chocolate sweet for my time) but they will be scanned with love.

    Why not start it up again, can't hurt. I need to get my film cameras out and give them a run as well, maybe this will give me the kick up the bum that I need to give the film cameras an outing.

    I wouldn't mind a go either. I can pull out my near new first ever SLR the Pentax MZ50.
    I was so excited to finally get a SLR and only ever used it a few times then I bought my first digital P&S. Digital works so much better for me. haha
    Thanks for looking....Cheers,

    Thanks for the offer but am looking at purchasing a v700 or v750 but can't seem to any 750's in oz. I can rent a v700 in the mean time at ACP for bout $10/hr but fnding the time is another story.

    Smallfooties: if I was still living in Perth, we could buy one together and time-share it lol, but I'm Sydney based these days.

    Awww! Bummer!
    Is it expensive to get a scanner? I have a scanner but don't have the film scanner device. And i saw they were selling it for $169 at the shops!

    Depends how high end u go n how large a film u need to scan. If I only had 35mm I'll probably look at the nikon coolscan range but since I've also got medium format to scan and can't afford the top end coolscan 9000, the best price/performance scanners are the flatbeds.
    I'm sure there are many more brands out there but I'm only looking at the epson v600/700/750 ranging in price from about 500-800 new. Havn't looked at second hand stuff yet.

    Leica M2. I went to the Zoo with my girlfriend, shot Kodachrome 64 than Fp4 which I finished off in the streets. Fp4 is by far my fav film ever.

    Thanks for digging this up again SF. Another little thing that I start and let slide. I am having a bit of a troubled time with my photography at the moment, but I should be able to find some stuff to post in the challenge.

    Cheers
