[filmscanners] Re: Making contact sheets on a flatbed scanner

Microtek makes a number of scanners with an 8 x 10 transparency bed,
and will scan negatives and do the inversion and orange mask removal
for you,  but the transparency bed is on a tray inside the scanner so
you can't leave the negs in their acetate sleeves.

 From a workflow (but not price) perspective you'd be best off with a
tabloid-size scanner that has the transparency light in the lid, so
that you can use it just like a photocopier:  put a set of acetate
sleeves on the bed, squash them flat with the lid, and scan.
