    what's your dust free method for doing 8x10 scans?

    I know it won't be dust free, but more like less dust method for scanning 8x10's. I have an Epson V700. Just got an AN glass for it.

    Its driving me nuts!

    Try wet scan with the dedicated Holder.
    You need the holder ( roughly 100/120$), liquid (I use Kami) and Mylar sheets.

    Does the wet scan really make a difference?

    I have an epson v850 to scan 4x5 sheets and the amount of dust I am getting with the default holder is driving me nuts.

    If you are seeing dust when using the film holder then something is very wrong. Clean the negs, clean the glass, select scanning with the film holder option and make sure the scanner is focused on the film plane in the holder and not on the glass.

    Even if it doesn't solve your dust problem, it will make sharper scans & can aid in hiding scratches.

    Hmmm, okay, I never really thought about it. I can do that with a V700?

    Hate to disrupt the penchant of our techno obsessives, but unscented, non-coated Swiffers Dusters suck up dust better than anything. They do not create static, they remove the tiniest. Try them.

    I use a V 750 Pro, the 700 should be the same.
