I really need this. And, could I scan 120's with film info on the side with 550?
Asked by: Peter
The V550 has been discontinued and been replaced by the V600. Either way, the supplied film holder will not allow you to scan outside the image area, you would have to make mask out of cardboard that shows the periphery.

Asked by: Chester
I do not remember the answer but I was told by the sales person in the B&H 2nd floor location. Whatever it was was minor and not necessary for me. However, since they are currently priced equally buy the 600.
