    What is FLUID MOUNT Scanning?

    Is there anyone who can explain this for the layman? Just got off with Philiinos who work for Epson.

    I can't find anyone who can explain this to me in a way I can understand. thanks!

    Gem, could not fine Kami wet film.... I'm sure if I looked another 20 minutes or so I'd eventually find it.

    Marc, nice links, this stuff looks pretty hairy.

    vinny, I did that Google search myself before posting here. Funny, when you ask for simple laymens help, you get generic links with complicated explanations!

    But are you guys doing this? is this worth it?

    Yes. Yes.
    Plenty of old threads here on the benefits.

    this is "oil mounting", but its essentially the same thing. In this video, she's using the top-end flatbed scanners, Kodak Eversmart Supreme II's, they're on-par with some of the top-tier drum scanners, and command a price much higher than your average Epson V750 . FYI. But the theory is the same, oil/fluid mount.

    Scroll down the Aztek home page on the link that was furnished. At the lower left, there are various selections.

    Click on the section called Film Mounting Demo.

    That will take you to the U-Tube video about wet mounting film on a flatbed scanner.

    That's the demo video I watched when I was learning about wet mounting. Simple and easy to understand.

    Although it uses Kami fluid, the technique can be utilized with any type of mounting fluid.

    Daniel, wow, I'm just getting either v700 or v750, hence, just need it for doing web or up to 16 x20 max. for big prints will go to you or outsource. Hence you agree then save $250 and just go with the 700?

    Yes yes.. but wet mounting with a film scanner like the Nikon 9000, the Scanscience site doesn't actually explain...and you use the proprietary film holders as well??
