    Just joined the LFP Forum. Can you point me to a thread that helps me understand how to get full-frame 8x10 scans from my (ca. 1975) 8x10 b/w film negatives on an Epson v850?

    You should place the Area Guide accessory in the right position on the glass bed:

    In this way the scanner knows that it has to use the low resolution lens inside, as the hi res lens ony covers 5.9".

    Then place the negative directly on the glass with the emulsion side down, touching the glass, as the low lens is focused just in the outer glass surface.

    For the rest it's like scanning any other film: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-z8drKsf-ic

    You can adjust how the image looks in the Epson Scan scanning software, but I prefer to take all dynamic range and later editing in Ps.

    If you take all the histogram then the image may look dull, so you may need to compress shadows and highlights in Ps to allow range enough for the mids.

    Scan BW negative mode, 16 bits per channel and save in TIFF format because if not your image can be converted automatically to 8 bits per channel. After edition you may convert it to 8bits and jpeg, but better don't degradate quality until the last moment.

    Probably 2800dpi will be enough, but you may scan several crops at different dpi to see when a higher dpi is not interesting for you. At 2800dpi-16bits you get a 1.25Gb file...

    Feel free to ask anything (by PM, if you want) if you have any problem or question.

    The link in the previous post is well worth.

    FYI, the 800/850 probably has the newer design which is just a top piece that fits at the top of the bed (for calibration) as opposed to the v700/v750-style piece above that is the rectangle the size of the scanner bed.

    Epson manual (https://files.support.epson.com/docid/cpd4/cpd41530.pdf) pages 33-34 tells how to place it.

    Pere, reading the 850 manual from your link led me to the idea that the 850 wet mount kit is usable on a V700.

    And available for under $60. https://www.amazon.com/Epson-Fluid-M.../dp/B00OKB52JE

    I have never read anywhere BEFORE that we can do that!

    Looks very good for 5X7 and smaller.

    Randy, for 8x10" we also can wet mount directly on the scanner glass bed. If at some point the glass becomes scratched then a replacement is cheap.

    The V700 is virtually identical to the V850, main difference is the more convenient LED illumination, and the fact that the V750 and V850 have a better coating in the lenses that probably are very difficult to notice.
