[filmscanners] RE: Avoiding Newton rings

The trouble is that if you have a badly curled piece of film, it's likely to
be curved so that you need to press the shiny side against the glass in
order to flatten it out.

What about using some kind of fluid between the two, matching the refractive
index of either the glass or the film substrate? Like the goop they use in
drum scanners? Is that ever done in slide mounts?
