    I've got thousands of negatives, must have over 5000 35mm transparencies. Never lost one. I've lost so many digital photos over the years:Doh: my system now is bomb proof, but made so from desperation at losing stuff. I still have a few photos on floppy 5 1/4 disk and a few more on Zip disks that I shot on a Casio in 1996/7. :Eeek: Can't remember what they are, but probably pics of the kids

    Taken in the Faroes 15/01/98, DSCF0001 on a Hanimex? which I gave to a charity shop last year. It was extremely slow and the subject usually had time for a coffee before the shutter went off. :Rofl1:

    This was Mainhard (Minar), my wife's uncle in my "see you Jimmy" hat.

    In the late 80's I was working (briefly) on the picture desk of a national newspaper, just at the time when the compact disc was becoming popular.
    I had an Optical Media Read/Write Device on my desk that was the size of a small family car.

    It was my job to take the 35mm negatives from the staff photographers, scan them and prepare the images for publication.

    I hated Princess Diana.
    Her dress, at least, because I spent about 8 hours trying to crop the background from a picture of her for the front page.
    The Apple Macs we were using just weren't up to the job :whistle:

    Later, the photographers I knew started to invest in digital backs for their Hasselblads and Nikons and I was able to borrow them for my own use, even though one cost twice as much as my car.

    Some years ago, I bought a large external hard drive, 35mm film scanner and large format scanner with the intention of digitally archiving all my old stuff.

    Two weeks later I dropped about 20,000 negatives in a skip and genuinely haven't missed them.

    Anyone want a 35mm film/slide scanner?
    Life's too short... :Smile:

    I think that is quite sad.. if it weren't for our ancestors who kept photos we would have no idea what they looked like.. I have quite a number dating from the late 19th century .

    ... it's hard to preserve for ever, but if we hand on the digital images perhaps our kids will do something with them for future generations..
