[filmscanners] Re: Question for 2450 owners

The 2450 comes with three film holders. One handles 120 formats (up to 6x9
format, in film strips) and 4x5. The second handles mounted 35mm slides
(2x2" mounts). The third handles 35mm negs or transparencies up to two
strips of 6 frames in length.

Many times I just drop my film or mounted transparency on the flatbed
glass, emulsion down, scan and then reverse them in Photoshop. Easier than
loading the film holders. Results are indistinguishable from using the
holder, but you have to be careful to get the orientation correct.

I also drive the 2450 exclusively with VueScan
<http://www.hamrick.com/> ... I only used the Epson supplied software to
test that it worked once.
