[filmscanners] Re: Glass carrier and 35mm negs



I have a friend who purchased the 8000 specifically to scan 35mm with the
glass carrier. He wanted to have the entire 35mm frame including the blank
(black) surround. He has had no problem with his and the nikon scan
software. I'm not sure which glass carrier he has, but it did cost a few
$$$'s. His scans of HP5 are magnificent.

FWIW
