Why should I pickup my film negatives?

There are several reasons why you might want to keep your film negatives:

  1. Quality: Film negatives contain all the information captured by the camera when the photograph was taken. When you print from a negative, you are able to produce prints with a higher level of detail and sharpness than you would be able to from a digital file or a print made from a digital file.
  2. Archival: Film negatives can last for a long time if they are stored properly. They are less susceptible to degradation than digital files, which can become corrupt or become incompatible with new software or hardware.
  3. Enlargements! If you want to Re-Scan the negative to make a larger printable image, you will need the negative to do that!
  4. Computer Crashes: computers can crash, get viruses, phone images can get lost or stolen (with all your images) Also digital files can get corrupted easily. Keep a backup or the negatives to make sure you never lose those memories!
  5. Historical value: Film negatives can be a record of important events or a way to document the history of a particular place or time. They can be a valuable resource for researchers or historians in the future.
  6. Personal value: Film negatives can have sentimental value and can be a way to preserve memories of loved ones or special occasions.

In general, it is a good idea to keep your film negatives as they can be a valuable resource for both personal and backup purposes.
