    After a foray into digital photography, I've picked up my old 35mm SLR and am getting back into film. Although my enlarger still appears capable, I'm planning to scan film and slides and am really interested in what I can do with B&W. Any tips on shooting, scanning and inkjet printing of B&W films would be appreciated.

    Welcome Rudy. I sold all my darkroom stuff a few years ago and have over the last 12 months been buying it all back again. I am planning to have a dedicated darkroom in the house in about 12 months. In the meantime, I have been scanning my negatives on an Epson flatbed scanner that has negative holders. The results have been surprisingly good. I have scannned both 120 and 35mm negatives and the odd chrome. I scanned a couple I took with my Bessa 66 on TriX 400 and had them printed at a lab and they came out pretty good.
    Here's a scanned neg from my RZ.
