It comes with anti-Newton glass. As is typical, one surface has the
very fine grain of typical anti-Newton glass; you just have to make
sure the backing faces this glass. The emulsion side of film is very
slightly uneven, and will not cause Newton rings (there are a very
few, specialized films with a nearly shiny emulsion side, but they
are not normal photographic items). If you put the film in upside
down, you put the shiny base side against the regular glass, and
Newton rings are almost unavoidable. If you put the film and holder
in correctly, the scanning takes place through the clear glass so
there is no image degradation; dust is then the only concern. I
haven't had Newton rings yet.
