    Scanning 8x10 Negatives

    Hi All,
    Anyone had experience with scanning 5x7 and 8x10 negatives? Would say an Epson Perfection V800 be up to the task? Is there a big difference between V800 and V850?

    Hi All,
    30 cm 4.5 Heliar coverage? Will not cover 8x10? Seems as though it would be a rather large lens on 4x5/5x7?

    How accurately can exposures be made using a barrel lens in ULF photography? It would seem that long exposures would be beyond the range of shutters anyway.
