    With a flatbed scanner you usually wet mount in order to maintain the negative flat, and the time to scan a single or maybe 2 negs increases a lot.
    With X 1 or X5 you simply open the holder, place...

    Re: 3d printed MOD75 for devolping 5x7 sheets

    I can’t help you with this since I don’t use 5x7”.
    But if you design a 4x5 version for use with Paterson, I’ll be happy because Mod54 is quite expensive.

    Re: Imacon Flextight Problem

    Maybe the scanner part taking the holder is exiting to much from the scanner?
    This can be corrected with a regulation, a hidden setting of the scanner?

    Re: Lines on the side of the holder flap.

    It seems to me this has to do with light or development, probably the first.
    Are there any not-black area inside the camera.

    I use a V 750 Pro, the 700 should be the same.
  17. Re: what's your dust free method for doing 8x10 scans?

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