Hi everyone, Primarily a colour shooter here -- I own an Epson V850 that I've been generally happy with...until I put a B&W roll through it last year that threw up horribly low-contrast images with large dark blotches all across the frame. They looked as though patches of damp/oil had formed on the negatives and because the roll WAS old (it took me a year to get around to developing it) I quickly dismissed it as a film issue. Today, I tried another roll of recently-shot B&W and the same thing occurred. (See images below.) The odd thing is, the scans look perfectly normal in the preview and the wet/oily blobs only showed up in the finished scan. I also put the negs on a lightbox and looked at them with a loupe, and none of these black patches are visible anywhere. I checked my Epson software settings and they're definitely set to "B&W negative" and "16-bit Greyscale". As with colour, I don't tend to use the Colour Correction or Backlight Correction functions (the one that's on the main menu, not the one you have to click Configurations to get into), just Digital Ice. Any ideas?
