scanners for slides and digital cameras

Despite being a long-time computer weenie (or perhaps because of
it?), I still prefer to use a conventional camera and film (with
full control over film, lens, f-stop, exposure, etc.), and send
the film off to a lab for digital duplication.  With film, I get
the best return on my time and money.

I routinely crop images, provided the pixel count is high enough.
I use film precisely because it delivers that high pixel count
at low cost.  High-end digital cameras are still very expensive,
unless your volume is high.  The break-even point is somewhere in
the range of thousands of images per year.

Hope this helps,
