    Here are a few I shot this summer with my F4. Mostly with 100 ISO Fujifilm. Actually, I'm not sure whether I shot the last one or my husband did....he might have gotten that one because we were taking turns blowing the bubbles.

    I still enjoy film but I've been learning our new DSLR lately. I like it for shooting macros, but I like the F4 for shooting the kids and general photography. The shots look grainy on the screen, but they look really good printed. I notice that a lot with my film shots.

    Nice first post Kelly, welcome to the film forum. The colours and details in img3 are very good indeed.

    Like you I enjoy shooting film and digital, they both have their advantages and uses.

    Thanks. The third one is nicely detailed compared to the others, but they all print out so much better than they look on screen. I think print film is just that way. Some day I'd love to get a scanner.

    How did you scan these if you don't have a scanner Kelly?

    Like you have always thought that film images look better on paper (or indeed 'on' the original slide) than they do on a computer screen.

    I shoot mostly slide film and allthough I do have a cheap Canon flatbed scanner prefer to get my lab to do the scans because of the great quality they can get from my images.

    Robert, believe it or not I have my film scanned at Walmart. They scan at 300 dpi for a 4x6 and I think out of all the places I've taken my film, they do the best job. Even if I crop in a little bit the print still looks good. I would like to someday get the Coolscan V ED so I can scan my slides (I usually shoot negative film). For slides there is a full service professional lab I use called Process One in Overland Park, Kansas. They do a great job, too, but for negatives Walmart is very cost effective and I'm relatively happy (wish I could get 300 dpi for 8x10 though -- they don't do that).

    I just realized you are in the UK so you probably won't use Process One or Wallmart. If I didn't have these labs available I'd probably have to save up for a scanner.
