Camera Film Question

I like taking pictures in black and white film, can that film be put on cd also and how do you think the quality would be? and how well would it transfer to a photo printer?

If the pictures have good contrast and focus they should transfer just fine. It would work better on printers that have a true black cartridge and you will use a LOT of black ink in printing. It may not be any cheaper than developing for B&W pictures.

It's probably just as easy to take digital and remove the color information.

never thought of that, but would you loose any of the sharpness of the picture?

actually I would look around for developing B&W. My understanding is that most 1 hour places are not set up for anything but color and will have to send out your film for processing. Once developed, it should be NP to get on disk.

Digital my friend.

I don't do much B&W but a lot of people do. I think they have good luck with the blacks from regular laser printers.

Yeah ya just get it developed and put on CD then you burn your own CD's and print what you want from there. Doesn't your photo printer print B&W.

No. If you've got a good exposure to begin with simply remove the color information, tweak the sharpness and contrast, crop to taste, and print.

Also, as Jack said, a standard laser print can do good B&W and probably MUCH cheaper than a photo printer.
