Re: filmscanners: Getting started question



I'll combine the slide film recommendation with the out of date film
recommendation.  I was able to purchase about 50 rolls of Kodak 400
Elite Chrome for pennies a roll.  1 year out of date and it's not a
great film to start with, but it has helped me to understand all the
nuances of controlling exposure.  And, since it cost me almost
nothing, I've even had fun cross-processing some of it in C-41
chemistry.

That said, I still stick to negative film for most of my "keeper"
shots due to the forgiving nature of a wide exposure latitude.  It
just takes longer to learn how to scan negs with good consistent
results.
