Hi, I've been using the Coolscan 8000 to scan various media for 2,5 years now and lately something has started to annoy me. That is the inability of the FH-835S 35mm strip film holder to keep film flat enough. I was wondering if someone could share some tips on improving the situation? The problem is that most of the time, the film grain is sharp and tight in the area where I focused the scan on, but in the corners and edges of the frame, the grain goes significantly softer. I believe the film is slightly curving itself upwards in the holder even though you would think that the top part of the holder won't let it. I can get around the problem by putting the film to be scanned under a big pile of books for 2-5 days. But often I just don't want to wait that long. So what I would like to know, is if someone has figured out a neat trick that would help? Other than patience or learning to live with it, that is.
