Scanning film

I'm scanning in some old film negs that I want to have printed. I had forgotten exactly how time consuming it used to be to get a digital version of an image. And this is film that is already developed. Wild to think that with a tethered (or wireless) connection today, you can be editing in image in Photoshop about as quickly as you can put the camera down after taking a shot. I have some nostalgia for the darkroom days of film, but not really any at all from that middle time period when I was shooting film but doing edit work digitally and had to transfer the analog to digital myself. (There is a faint, faint, faint smell of fix on a few of my old black and white negs. That smell brings a flood of great memories.)
