    Going to ask him to make me another 8x10 holder as the one I had him make crops a little too much for my uses (my fault in measuring)

    BTW, do you have any more aluminum 8x10 negative frames? I'd buy one
    I guess that this is also a good way, probably the Low Res lens (used beyond 5.9 scan width, with area guide) is focused on the bed plane...

    Dear forum friends,

    Anybody has the perfect inner dimensions for 8x10 and 5x7 holders?
    As I have the Epson plastic version which is generally useless regarding the newton ring issue, I also like to try the pet mat version using the Epson for the outside dimensions.

    Thanks and best regards, Miguel

    If you place the emulsion side facing to the glass then you'll mostly avoid the rings.

    You can also wet mount the sheet directly on the bed glass.

    Thanks a lot Pere, I will try your suggestions. Also for the wet mount scan I will search the forum to find some suggestions.

    Also get a cheap HEPA air purifier (I use a Honeywell 16000), with it you will get rid of dust by starting it 5 minutes before (if room is small).

    Ah, that's a cool advice as well. I even have one at home but never used it for this purpose :-)
    And the video explains everything clearly.
    Thanks a lot, Pere!

    Does anyone have experience scanning 8x10 film on a 10000XL? I have a 12000XL (same specs as the 10k I believe) and am trying to find a source for a custom holder that will keep the film flush with the bed. Ideally there would be ANR glass involved.

    Re: 8x10 Scanning DIY for Epson scanners (v700/v750/v800/v850)

    Didn’t want to start a new thread. Was looking into getting an 8x10 back for my Sinar and was looking for an analysis / opinion on what the scan quality leap was moving from 4x5 to 8x10 while using an Epson v750-850.

    I’m finding 4x5 to give very good prints up to around 16x20. It always pained me to know I could get to more detail / sharpness / tonality if I had access to a drum scanner. I’ve read 8x10 scans off an Epson can be excellent due to the size of
    the negative. There is certainly a giant leap moving from 35mm to 120mm and then again to 4x5. The results do get better and better. Is this also true moving to 8x10?

    Thanks
