Thread: How can I minimize the cost of developing Medium format film?

  1. How can I minimize the cost of developing Medium format film?

    I just love my old cameras. I am just wondering what are the tricks to minimize the cost of developing medium format film? I would like to have professional quality.

    1. I guess the first is to buy expired film? (Which is the best source to get the film, ebay?)
    2. I guess I need to develop my own film on my own.
    3. I need to scan the negatives with my own scanner.

    Which is the best scanner to scan medium format film? Do you use one or you send it away to scan it?
    BUT probably the most important question: Is it worth it to develop and scan your own film?

    Locally we have a great place that does all of our medium format developing at low costs... of course we dont buy any prints... we run a Epson V750 Pro scanner which does a way better job than it needs to in scanning...

    They are right in downtown Albany so I dont have to pay any shipping costs... but I know they used to do mail ins as well...
