Can see that point. For travel and general photo's I find digital is the way, even in the past I have shot film. I have taken my Nikon F100 overseas, left my dSLR at home, other times including once it was at the service center. I get the shots yes but for average Joe here, I don't have a dedicated scanner so it's a debate between spending $800US or a farm the odd scan out and pay for it. While many have quit scanning Plustek is maybe one option. Then again for the low volume I am shooting why not just farm it out. However, I certainly wouldn't be going on a trip and then requesting 10 or 20 frames to be professionally scanned and pay that. Then yeah ... most of the frames are jut thru my flatbed scanner and how they sit they aren't the best .... For me it is probably shooting film more occasionally, prob less likely on travel etc. I mean if a person was into, you could just take 2 bodies, on that night take that film body out but for travel I find it doesn't make much diff and there is the hassle of scanning or copying it with a dSLR. I have a Epson V700. Scanning 35mm slides then scaled to a 1920x1080 size, my former Nikon D2h (4MP) was more detailed at that size. I suppose at least C41 or b/w film provides a bit more different look than digital. I would probably get the better holder for my V700 for medium format just to round the corners out yeah ... Would prob venture into copying it with a dSLR also. Just need a lightbox.
