I have a Minolta Scan-Multi and it uses a(n anti-newton) glass carrier for
medium-format film.  I've been tinkering with a modification to the holder
that makes it glassless and while this works -- and works quite well --
it's a PITA to scan more than a few images at a throw because it takes so
much time to load and align the film properly.  I thought maybe if I use
mounting fluid with plain optical glass in the carrier, I might achieve
better results still and faster loading to boot...
