    HI! San Francisco!

    I am new here. About to turn 30, and just moved to san francisco from seattle. Film was my passion in college, and tried going to university for it, but funding was dropped for the program, and took out the darkrooms and only left a small class left for photoshop. lammeee. Life got completely changed, and photography was just a hobby after that. Anyways, i plan to be active here. Film photography is one of my main passions, and now i plan on putting most of my free time dedicated to the craft. I like creative/abstract and artsy photography. Anything creative and expressive.

    I'll be browsing the forums, and catching up rather than asking redundant questions. although one thing i am curious about, any members here recommend a good 35 mm color slide scanner?

    Nice to meet you all!

    Brian

    Hi Brian and welcome to APUGland.The Bay Area has inspired many fine photographers over the years!

    Hello Brian, and welcome to APUG.
    For scanners, if you plan to only shoot 35mm then there are some excellent 35mm dedicated units out there. If you're like many who have thoughts of doing more then one format then I'd look to buy a flatbed scanner that will support 35-120-4x5. Again, there are plenty of those units new and on the eBay too.

    Look forward to seeing some of your work in the near future.

    I will probably stick to only 35 mm slide film for the time being, so a flat bed isn't really the best idea at the moment because i will be traveling abroad this summer. Hoping for something portable!

    I have never used one, but the 'Pakon' scanners look very interesting. They are made for minilabs, so very fast, and oddly, not that expensive. The maximum resolution on them is pretty low compared to say, a Nikon Coolscan or a Plustek, but if you want to scan a whole roll in a few minutes, and not that fussy about ultimate resolution, they look very tempting.

    I do very little 35mm, so it's not for me, but if you're only using 35mm, then well worth a look.

    Great, thanks for the heads up. Speed isn't a huge deal at the moment but the pakon is still an option. Although, I def have been eyeing the plustek options.
