    Re: Ok I might have gone overboard with my betterscanning holder

    I was having some variable results and Doug emailed me. I was scanning in Silverfast and he recommended Epson Scan. I did the "scratch the unexposed emulstion" trick which helped. I finally settled, after much much work, at .70mm height for a much better result. After doing this a bit, wet mounting is very quick. As a side note, I got some Gamsol (sp?) odorless mineral spirits from Michaels which others have recommended. Very greasy and leave some marks after evaporating. There are times you just pay for a better product so I'm sticking with Kami.

    Lumina is also a good scanning fluid.

    I use the Kami fluid from Aztec. Never tried LUmina. I like the Kami as it evaporates quickly and leaves zero residue.
