Would it be possible to scan half-frame negatives with this scanner? Using Vuesacan?
Asked by: Felipe
I think yes. But I didn't try. All those scanners find the end of the frame from the image when they hit dark separation line. So half frame will just be shorter.

Any tips on aligning frames on 35mm strips? I'm having to look through the top window which is dim and push the fwd/rev buttons. Very tedious
Asked by: Guy
Flatter the film, the better. Emulsion side up!!!!! And, it's best if you can situation the film coming into the scanner so that there's no resistance to the inward tug. I find that Double-X, Berrger Pancro, and Velvia are the worst; but if I follow the above strategies, I can scan them reliably at least 6 frames at a time, maybe many more.

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.

I had read reports of the original Prime Film XA sometimes scratching curled negatives or thicker negatives as they are pulled through. Can anyone say whether or not this is still a problem with the XAs or do the sprockets hold the film flat enough not to scratch it on the way through?
Asked by: Will
This scanner does not seem to have any issues, regarding scratches.

When this scanner is feeding a roll of 35mm film, will the motorized sprockets do a better job of flattening out the film than a regular negative holder on a flatbed scanner?
Asked by: EDWARD
It does a better job on flattening the negative then a flatbed
