Re: filmscanners: LS4000 slide removed from mount
Is it that big a difference? We're speaking of the light angle
differences which can allow for an exposed area due to the gap between
the internal frame mask within the camera and the film plane... so,
that's based upon how far the guide tracks stand out from the frame
surface. On the Nikon I just looked at, the guide rails actually make
up the top and bottom edge of the film frame mask, so the difference
there is zero, the short edges do have a small gap, I'm guessing less
than 1/32nd of an inch, assuming the film lies perfectly flat.
How much difference in frame length could that make?
