The Dmax figure is lower than most flatbeds. Does the low Dmax affect scanning average B&W and color negatives?
Asked by: nicolas
Dmax of 3.6 is considered to be pretty good. If you want a scanner with a higher DMax we do have some available.

question

Does the medium format carrier do a good job of keeping average film flat?
Asked by: nicolas
Having used a Nikon Cool Scan 9000ED for many years, I found I had to make similar adjustments to the film carrier of the Braun FS 120 in order to keep the film flat during the scanning process. I took a three-frame strip of film that I could afford to damage and then used that as a model for adjusting the the distance between the two magnetic film guides. Using the two screws just below the Lower Magnetic Film Guide, it just takes a bit of trial and errornot too close nor too far away. Have patience and play with it until you find the point that works for you.
