    I'm not sure why, but the forum has almost no discussion about using the lower resolution lens (i.e., the 8x10 lens) with a mounting station. If the best film height for this lens is variable (like the high-resolution SHR lens), it might actually exist slightly above the scanner bed, not directly on it, and require a mounting station for the very best critical results.

    I suspect V700/V750 users who do careful film-height calibration for the SHR lens forget that doing the same tests for the lower resolution lens might be a very good idea, and prove a mounting station produces the best results for both lenses.

    Adding more serendipity. I settled on using the 8x10 film guide with 8x10 piece of AN glass laying on the V700 platen. I then lay dry 5x7 or 8x10 negs emulsion down on top of that and use manual cropping with Vue Scan. Sometimes I need to tape a neg down, but mostly not. I set scan for final print size at 300 dpi.

    Works for me on this particular scanner better than any other combo I tried.

    I am a hobbyist, not a professional.

    Doesn't scanning through the AN glass affect the scanned image quality?

    Perhaps, but in my 20x30 Costco enlargements, I don't see it. They cost $9.00.

    Good enough for government work as we used to say.

    I am not a fan of using these methods, and prefer normal wet darkroom enlargement procedures.

    I only need to please myself.
