• To use the Kits for the Nikon 5000 / Nikon V
    /Canonscan FSU4000, and Minolta Scanners you
    need Only the mounted slide film holders provided
    with the scanner. No extra holders are necessary.  
  • It is possible to scan strip film in scanners that position
    the holder horizontally instead of vertically, because
    the lid is not necessary for the control of the holder
    within the scanner, as for example the MInolta Scan
    Elite II pictured above.
  • With 35 mm Nikon scanners equipped with an FH-3
    Holder it is possible to remove the lid or flap of the
    holder to fit the scanning glass provided. In this case
    the strip film kit 2.3 can be used.  First verify that the
    holder cover or flap can be removed, and if you can,
    order the 2.3 strip film kit.

  • Fluid   scanning, has these advantages:
  1. achieves a flat film plane and
  2. Eliminates Newton Rings.
  3. By placing the film under the scanning glass,
    additional refraction is avoided, and the image has a
    clear path to the sensors
  4. The fluid scanning kits are cheaper and more
    effective than the glass holder.

  • Other Questions about using the Single Slide
    Kits
  • What about fluid dripping inside the scanner?
  • A concern with beginners is that the fluid will drip inside the
    scanner. However, the fluid mount is totally dry externally
    before it goes into the scanner and then, the only existing fluid
    is internal: A micro-layer between film and glass, film and
    overlay.
  • What about Image quality output from a fluid scan from the
    these scanners?
  • The special quality of a drum scan stems from the fact that
    drum scanners are all fluid scanners. Fluid scanning
    upgrades all these scanners significantly, and the output -
    short of turning out central station filling murals, are
    outstanding.
  • Remember to order spare plates.  Save time by
    assembling one mount while scanning another.
ScanScience Scanning glass
is finely crafted to small
tolerances and bevelled with
smooth corners for safety.
Scanning plates are only
1mm thick, a back up plate
added to your order will
ensure peace of mind. It is a
must with plate sizes beyond
the single slide format.
