Well, I got the V700 scanner today, and I spent the evening re-scanning some of my M6 films . . . it does a grand job, and will be staying, it's reasonably fast and in comparison with the same films scanned with the Nikon 5000 it's very nearly as good.
But . . . it made me realise two things.
1. Film has real charm
2. I really don't have the time to be fiddling with it - I have a very busy day job (lucky me), and the scanning and processing of film is simply one step too far.
So I've sent an email cancelling the order for the M7 (they were going to despatch it tomorrow for delivery on April Fool's day).
It's a sad thing as I was anticipating lots of fun . . . but where the time was coming to fit it in I really don't know
So, I'll be sticking with my M8 and A900, I have the processing pretty much down, so that I'm not spending much time on each shot (I wish I could).
So - here are my analog dreams gone up in smoke
(taken with the CV15 and an M6ttl in October 2006 - rescanned and processed tonight).
