[filmscanners] Re: IT8 calibration & SS 120



Jim

Thanks again.  I will have to try this again tonight.  With a four strip
there does not seem to be too much room to move the film strip in the
holder.  I had reasonable success with the Insight 6x24 scan.  I will also
do as you suggest and try offsetting the frame in Vuescan.

Lots to try so that is good, I'm sure I will find a preferred method.

Regards..

Simon
