[filmscanners] Re: SS120 Glass holder



Craig  --  Perhaps you have a "bad" version of the SS120 glass holder's
glass, although your guess is as good as mine as to what creates the
undesirable effect.  Anyway, I've not noticed the "mosaic" pattern you
mention in my scans, although otherwise the holder is as badly engineered
as the regular 120 holder.  (In both holders it is much more of a chore than
it should be to position a 120 image on a strip of film so that you can
actually scan the image you're interested in.)  You might try getting an
exchange from Polaroid, but since they seem to have stopped producing the
holders that might be difficult.  Also, earlier postings have mentioned how
to buy the glass directly from its manufacturer, but I haven't saved them.
