Do your own processing!

Buy a few 120 Nikkor stainless steel reels ( $ 2.00 ) and a Nikkor processing tank ( $ 10.00 ), A bottle of Rodinal ( 1 time use and cheap because it's mixed about 1:50 or 1:100 ) a bottle of stop bath ( acetic acid ( winegar ), and a bottle, or even cheaper, a package of fix.

Process it yourself in 15min for less than .50 cents.

Yes, scanning can be problematic if you don't clean or dry the negative carefully. It was just the same when I made prints! Then, I had to take out my paint brushes and retouch every print. Now at least, you have the clone tool and dust and scratches in Photoshop! You guys don't realize how easy you have it!

If you go through the processing and enjoy it, next, get an enlarger ( Durst ) and make some prints. Then and only then will you become the "full" photographer!
