Re: filmscanners: Nikon LS-30 Coolscan III makes scratches on negatives

You appear to have deduced the cause of the scratches that appear
using the feeder.  The film strip holder is much better in every
aspect except convenience:))  The feeder also doesn't get the film
flat enough!  In other words, it's 'one-hour' quality, don't use it
unless you're just doing quick snaps.
