Funny you should mention this... on the Minolta Dimage Dual II (if I
understand the instructions) suggests you should insert film emulsion
up.  Yet, if I do so, the image is reversed when scanned, and has to be
flipped.

Since this scanner allows for manual focusing (poorly, I have to
admit... it uses a motor and  the software interface tends to "stick"
and overshoot one way or the other)... anyway, I just place the negs
emulsion down so they scan properly in terms of positioning.

Then again, I've found a number of errors in the printed manual, so who
know what they really meant...
