Yes. I just upgraded to 11.2.2 and tested the scanner using SilverFast 8.8.0r24 and it worked correctly. Used the Workflow Pilot. I'm using a late 2014 Mac mini, 2.8 GHz Dual Core Intel Core 5.

My understanding is the PrimeFilm XE does not have autofocus like the XA does. I'm assuming the XEs still lacks autofocus. Is the DoF of the macro lens inside good enough that the grain is sharp edge to edge in the negative holder even without autofocus?
Asked by: Will
This scanner does have autofocus, in addition to a great DoF.

I have several uncut 35mm bw negatives still rolled up in the original metal canisters. I've been looking for a solution where I would not need to physically cut them up into strips of 6. Would the film strip holder allow me to load these uncut negatives without having to cut up the roll? And would the holder do a good job keeping these rolled up negatives flat?
Asked by: Jeffrey
Yes it works well
