Hello,
in terms of output, is it just possible that a quality film scanner would be an adequate substitute for a high-end digital camera?
For many of us who are experienced and equipped with film camera gear, the changeover to digital is a daunting undertaking, requiring a huge investment, in time and money, if we expect to produce results (eventually) on a par with that which we are now capable.
If what we are really after is just a digital file, so that we can easily manipulate our images in PS, or for the ease of delivery over the internet, for example, won't a film scanner save many of us a LOT of money?
Can a one-hour photolab and a film scanner allow us to continue to use the film gear we already own, in order that we can delay indefinitely a change many of us are not yet prepared to make? Any opinions?

best, andy
