Any experience with Better Scanning's adjustable film holders?
Apr 22, 2012

I hope I'm in the correct place as I did not see a forum for scanning and printing is my ultimate goal.

I have an Epson V700 scanner. I just scanned a 4x5 transparency with outstanding results proven on a 16x20 print.

On 120 transparencies shot with a Mamiya 645, the results are not so sharp. In comparison, scans done on a Nikon Coolscan 9000 dedicated film scanner look much sharper. The Epson film older is not an impressive piece of plastic.

I think it may be a focus problem because the 4x5 did so well and am wondering if anyone has had this experience on a V700 with 120 film and whether the adjustable Better Scanning film holder produces better results.

Thanks in advance. I would prefer to scan on my V700 as the Nikon is more trouble and a rental machine. jp
