    The shots look good, but there certainly does seem to be some scanner artifacting! At this size, they look ok though:

    This shot has a nice 19th century look to it - very cool. Must be the film ... uh, stuff. ;)

    Nice shots! It's nice to see someone excited about the venerable F5. I still have my beloved F5AE. I can't bear to part with it, even after going digital.

    One of these days Bob :D  , right now i am just enjoying my slides. Altough I see a D2X possible in a year or two
  6. Hm, what scanner are you using?

    I have been spending time with film lately. I have scanned in over three thousand old negatives in the last several weeks, mostly using an Epson 4990 flat bed/film scanner. The durned thing does four film strips at a time and I think is giving me great results.

    I am getting anywhere from 5 to about 8 megapixels worth of decent image, depending on the quality of the shot, how beat up the negative is, etc.

    I am thinking about buying an FM3A just to use now and again. There is a warmth to film that I hate to lose forever. I'd like to try medium format, but I have all of these nice Nikon lenses, so 35mm it will be...

    beezle that is interesting indeed. honestly I dont have a scanner, this were done at a local camera store for a friend as she wanted a cd:)  I was looking at a coolscan, but the only time I need scans is to post images on forums...so:) 

    I am looking at a FM3A as well or a F4 so i can use MF lenses to their full function :D
