Since 35mm strips are pulled in by sprockets, does this flatten curled film better than a negative holder in a flatbed scanner can?

Would there be a way to scan 110 negatives with this scanner?
Asked by: Amy
Unfortunately, this scanner cannot accommodate 110 negatives. An option to scan 110 negatives would be the Wolverine Data F2D Titan 8-in-1 High-Definition Film to Digital Converter, BH # WOF2DTITAN. https://bhpho.to/3tlkGp4

I'm intrigued by this Pacific Image scanner and wonder if anyone has compared the results from this with a Nikon Coolscan 5000?
Asked by: William
Hello William, Unfortunately we do not as the Nikon 5000 has been discontinued 10+ years now, so we have no comparison scans between these 2 models

Is it possible to apply automatic dust removal ...

Is it possible to apply automatic dust removal during the batch scanning of a whole roll?
Asked by: Marco
The real question is whether you can "batch scan" a whole roll of film. I am among many people who find it is not possible to set up multi-image scanning and walk away while it works. Frame advancement is not 100 % reliable and when it miss aligns a frame all the following frames will be mis-aligned also. Am I disappointed that batch scanning is not practical? Yes! Does it make good scans one frame at a time? Yes! So, if you set your expectations to not rely on batch scanning you will likely be happy with this unit.

Is there a way to scan 110 negatives with this scanner?
Asked by: Amy
Yes there is a "hacky" way: Buy some old 110 slides or slide frames with some adapter (sometimes you need some 110 slide to 35mm slide adapter - it depends on the slide size as I can remember) After that, you can scan it on the front (where you can scan the normal 35mm slides).
