When we moved over here I brought across all of the negatives I have (wanted to bring the slides too, but they took up far too much space to come in our luggage, and I didn't want to trust them to the shipping company). This means I have about 220 films. At a guess, around 150 of those are colour 35mm, 40 are B&W 35mm, and the rest are 120 format (negatives 56x56mm, in this case). Of course, I want to scan them all. This means approximately 7200 frames to be scanned, named, labelled, organised. At 5 minutes each (probably the absolute minimum, the actual scanning takes 3 minutes), that's around 600 hours of work. Whew.

And then there's 190,000 files worth of fun.Collapse )
