Thanks. I'm just interested in opinions on paying a developer to scan versus doing it myself. Quality, cost and related factors. What is a decent film scanner? Flatbed or dedicated 35mm? Scan prints or negatives? What if I want to scan some 4"x6" prints. That kind of stuff.
Send in for [film processing + digital scans of the negs at the same time] usually means very low res results of about 2MPixels, good enough only for 4x6" print at 300 pixel-per-inch quality
Unfortunately a number of the quality dedicated film scanners (e.g. Nikon) stopped making them, and a further obstacle is that units on the used market may pose issues of driver support under Win10. And the ones still being made are somewhat pricey for a hobbyist...while you can find 135 scanner at $350 but medium format support costs $2000
