    I've only been a digital user when it comes to SLR's. My grandpa passed away a few weeks ago and my parents found a Fujica ST-605 and a few lenses at his place.

    I'm thinking about getting some film and trying out teh whole film thing.

    I was wondering though how I could go about seeing the result of my photos? It looks like you guys seem to turn your shots around pretty quick.

    scanning negitives is a bitch! i farm that out.

    as for film, i used to make my own wet prints. great fun but i dont shoot enough to enjoy that anymore. a good enlarger these days is $1500 by itself...
