  • Hello "There are none so blind who do not see". I only saw the closing date of the sale, after I asked the question. Thanks for taking the time to reply MDE
  • Hello Why would anyone pay $149 for Ultimate 19 and just $129 for Ultimate 19 pack? Is not Ultimate 19 a subset of the 19 pack, or am I missing something? MDE

  • Well, each to their own. I have very few problems with the V800 35mm frames and like the glass inserts that really keep the film as flat as possible. They do need to be kept clean, I think I have ...
  • My old Epson 4870 took 24 35mm frames in a 6x4 grid and the V800 35mm frame has a 6x3 grid, so if the software uses absolute frame positioning, then the scanner would need to told, which 35mm ...
