[filmscanners] Re: Avoiding Newton rings

I think how obvious the anti-newton ring "texture" in the glass or
plastic depends on the lighting source in part, but most importantly,
the magnification ratio.  When scanning a 35mm or 6x6cm film, the
scanning resolution is 2700-4800 dpi, while I don't suspect your are
scanning a 4x5 or 8 x 10 transparency at that type of resolution (unless
you want a several gig file).

I'm unfamiliar with anti-newton ring plastic.  How thick is it?  Is it
flexible?  How do you avoid scratches and static?
