    Peter,

    Sorry, my scanner doesn't have a calibration area; bed glass goes under a metal edge on all sides. Based on the post above, it sounds like you don't want to cover that area. I would suggest just wiping away from that area to eliminate any bubbles and remove excess fluid.

    Good luck! And, let us know how it all works out for you.

    Peter De Smidt, do you scan 8x10? My film is not curly, but there is not that much room left.

    Alan, I'll keep you guys updated on how this turns out.

    Yes, I scan 8x10, but I do so with a scanner that has a larger scanning bed than an Epson.

    Tried wet scanning tonight... I got lots of lines instead of Newton rings... is anyone familiar with this?

    Lines? Can you post a picture of what you're talking about?

    Hi, I didn't save the picture, but I think it might have been because I accidentally covered the calibration area with fluid or Mylar. I'll give it another go tonight :-)

    Just go to your glass workshop and make them cut a piece of quality clear window glass, the 8x10 has to fit in it... glue 4 legs (rubber, to not damage the bed) to the glass in order film is at same height than with the EPSON holder you have. Laminated safety glass may be used...

    Of course make the workshop polish the glass edges. It doesn't look very high end, but it works perfect.

    Yes. This is why I now simply tape my negatives to the glass. No bubbles, no lines, no rings.

    Which is great for you, but it might not work for others, depending on the humidity, type of film, ....

    You cannot scan 8x10 negatives in film holder mode, at least I cannot on the 750V...Film Area Guide only. Elevating 8x10 negatives in film area guide mode doesn't improve resolution for me, but it has for others.
