Nope...they will work the same. B&W can be pretty economical if you develop yourself. The trick is getting the image in the computer. I bought a Nikon Coolscan V-ED and love it. Scanning negs is pretty slow...but worth it.Thanks for the great info guys. The F100 looks good. Most of my lenses are non-DX.
At this point it could be color or B&W. Is one or the other easier with the F100?
What is the other 10% that the F100 has over the N80?David, the F100 is a nice camera but for the price of one, around $300, you could buy an N80, $100, (has 90% of the functionality of the F100) and buy an Epson 4490 scanner, $200! I can recommend both Kodak and Ilford chromagenic B&W films (Kodak is smoother and Ilford has slightly more pronounced grain). By the way, I really recommend enrolling in a class at your local community college if you have the time and really experience wet room work.
Thanks, no problem with that part. Just wondering best way to get the negative slides, but I think that was answered earlier.Well, once you have some negatives you just scan them in with either the scanner's software (download the latest version from Epson's site) or directly from Photoshop, which is what I do. Apparently either the 2480 or 2580 will work.
Nope, no plans at the moment. Just going to get some film for the first time and the first choice I hit was slide or print. And the first recommendation I got in this thread was for slide. Slides seem easier to handle from looks? But I have no experience with either.Hi Peter, uh, David :Wink: :smile:
Ilford's Delta 100 film claims to be ble to be processed to make black and white slides. I'm curious though, why do you want b&w slides? Are you planning on projecting them? I think there is no better way to see a photograph than to view a properly projected slide!
Print film is developed into a negative which can then be used to print the image onto paper. Slide film creates the image as a positive transparency - you can view the image itself when it's shot on slide film and viewed with a light source behind it. Slide film has more contrast and color than print film and your images will be sharper although it affords you a little less latitude for exposure error (read: bracket your shots!) Yes, there is B/W slide film.What will be the difference in print vs. slide film? I still plan on scanning myself. Also, I haven't seen any B&W slide film, is it done?
I've used it, but that was back in the day. What's available now, is it full range or high contrast, and where can I get it?
