    I scan 8x10 with Microtek, Scanmaker i900. It scans via transmission, not reflection and has done a great job for about 20 years.

    Re: Scanning 8x10 Negatives

    I would 100% agree, love to spend all my time in the darkroom and really, really don't love hanging digital (inkjet) prints. That said, I shoot 6x17 as well and don't have an 8x10 enlarger so making digital negatives is actually a reasonable solution and provides a fiber based print in the end produced in the darkroom. I also love 8x10 contacts but have a few times where a larger print makes sense and again, the digital negative has some benefits. Photoshop makes it so simple to remove dust and artifacts and make small layer adjustments that I came to the realization that it can't be ignored anymore. Just my excuses for the day.

    I've scanned 5 x 7 color negs with the 750, but upgraded to a IQsmart 2. It does a better job (no surprise, I suspect) but the 750 results were quite acceptable. Not sure what film the negs were - they were shot in 1973. I'll try to remember to pull a couple out of storage and check the film type tomorrow. I did a couple of 8 x 10 scans as well, but most of what I do in LFis 5 x 7

    I've been using a V750 for several years for negatives up to 8x10. Does a nice job. Good enough for my needs.

    Once upon a time I DIGI spotted all negative scans

    Bought my V700 new 8-9 years ago, almost never turn it off

    It is fine for my purpose and I never spot wet DR prints or negatives

    I embrace flaws

    I am careful about dust, yet my DR is always humidified, in winter, that helps
