Your right, I would not enjoy cutting my film down to individual frames and
using glass! What about just filing out the film holders a bit?

I've never understood why full frame holders weren't standard issue for
enlargers and film scanners. I don't get why the
designers/engineers/manufacturers believe we should want our images cropped,
and then to loose more image to flare refracting off the holders edges. Who
the hell designs these things, and what I really want to know is how that
fool managed to get a job with every manufacturer out there....

Thanks Laurie
