Re: filmscanners: epson flatbed transparency adaptor?
I've been using an Expression 800 Pro (which includes the TPU) for
over a year now. The TPU hood replaces the reflective cover, but it
has an opaque, reflective insert for doing reflective scans. Works
What doesn't work well are the film holders. The lousy Epson
filmholders have been rehashed endlessly on this list,
comp.periphs.scanners, etc. Don't even bother to muck with them,
except for the 35mm slide holder. I experimented a great deal on the
best method to scan transparencies, only to discover by accident
recently that simply taping the film strips to the glass bed is the
best method of all (scanning with the focus depth set at 0mm, of
course). Apparently the glass bed is either anti-Newton glass or has
an anti-Newton coating. Using 3M Safe-Release masking tape I've had
no problems with tape residue, either.
