One of the Sprintscan 120 Beta testers developed a method for scanning
panoramic medium format film.
He scanned the first position at 6x9, the second position at 6x9. This
resulted in overlap. Brought both into Photoshop, changed the opacity in one
image, lined it up and dropped on the other image , returned opacity to zero
We will be making eventually build panoramic functionality into the system.

Subject: filmscanners: Thoughts on 6x17 in NIkon 8000ED
Anyone had any thoughts along these lines:
- Use the new Nikon 8000ED to scan both halfs (with overlap) of a
6cmx17cm panoramic transparency? Like stuff from that monster Fuji
I guess my question is, can this _mechanically_ be done with this
scanner? I realize the spec is 6x9, but is there anything standing in
the way of physically scanning one half at a time?
Obviously, you'd need a boatload of RAM to do the compositing, but that
would sure be worth it!
