  1. Re: after you remove the wet neg from scanner, what's your drying method?

    >> I've had sheet film that wouldn't wet-mount successfully on a flatbed.

  3. Re: after you remove the wet neg from scanner, what's your drying method?

    Depends on what you mean by quality, Alan.
    On a high end flatbed the difference is in noticeable smoothness in wet mounted scans vs dry. In theory (hard to prove), the tone reproduction should...

  34. Re: Going to Yosemite but can't take my 4x5 or 8x10. What to do?

    Converting\modifying a camera like that would be a crime.
    One can use any 120 film roll back to quickly and painlessly respool forward. The respooling back will be all "manual" still.
