Where to get a large format picture scanned? I have eight 14" x 22" posters from all of the plays I was in during my high school years in the mid-80's. I would like to have them all scanned, front and back, into images I can post on the web. I took them to FedEx-Kinko's, and they wanted $8 per side to scan them. I am nostalgic, but not $128 worth of nostalgic. Is there a less expensive way I can turn these memories into digital artifacts?

Why are large format photographers in movies always depicted under the darkcloth while exposing the picture?
I have many memories of people in movies, cartoons, etc. who while taking a photograph with a view camera remained underneath the darkcloth while making the exposure. However, the film holder should be cutting off the light to the groundglass and therefore they shouldn't be able to see any image. Is this just due to the ignorance of the movie makers or is there some reason why they are depicted this way?
