[filmscanners] Re: IT8 calibration & SS 120



Simon,

Unfortunately, it scans where it thinks the frames are but there's enough 
overscan that you
can position the film strip in the carrier to get all frames in view.  Because 
of the way
120 cameras index and register each frame, varying film tensions, slippage of 
the metering
roller, and a sloppy stop pawl, frame registration varies a good deal.

I'm even starting to have good results with VueScan by altering the 
Device/Frame Offset to
-.25 (VueScan changed this to -.247) and Frame Spacing to 6.25.  This seems to 
work for my
old Kowa Six's.  slight alterations to these setting may be required for 
Hasselblads,
Bronicas, and Mamiyas.
