I was unhappy here with my search either for a film scanner or a flatbedscanner.

Because for most of the filmscanner you have to cut the 120 negs individually, or if you want to use a flatbed the risk for damaging the negatifs is high, or many times the scan shows newton rings.

(fui: I could'n afford a Amicon scanner, the only scanner that has'nt those problems).

But I found this:

Dead Link Removed

I ordered one of the holders yesterday. It wasn't cheap at all, agreed, I took some risks. (Think some handy men can easely create the holders themselves)

But on my Agfa Arcus 1200 (max 2400 ppi) it works wonderfull.

The solution for me. I don't need to cut my negs and no more newton rings or problems with dust anymore.

Hope, it was usefull for you!

My curiosity gets in my way sometimes, but just what exactly are these? I am thinking that one would place a negative in the holder for scanning. Is this correct? And it looks like you would have to cut the negative to place in the holder?

Just looking for information not challenging your use.

Dear Ann,

Sorry that I wasn't clear at all :smile:

That are Imacon filmholders of different dimensions for different type of films . One side of the holder is in flexible thin metal, the other side is in another flexible material that's kept in place by the magnetism of both materials.
The filmholder is that thin that it don't disturbe when
you close the flatbed scanner.
