Re: filmscanners: RE: filmscanners: nikonscan

Ed, have you tried offsetting the x,y starting position for focusing by a Nikon 
scanner (eg LS-30) to see if an offset on a curved piece of film stock would be 
better? Or does the scanner head off in whichever direction that makes the 
contrast increases by itself?
