Where find masks for the FH-869GR film holder (Coolscan 9000)?


P

Philip Dygeus

I am considering a Coolscan 9000 which comes with the FH-869GR film holder. But no masks are included for this holder so I would have to buy them somewhere.

Any ideas where I could find such masks? Is it perhaps possible to make them oneself?

I would very much appreciate any thoughts and suggestions on this.

Cheers
Philip

I's suggest you look into ebay or similar.
AFAIK, those masks are not available from anyone else.
Another possibility is to use a thin cardboard mask for a scanner like
the Epson ones.
Some have multiple sizes, from 35mm to 6X9
Cut out the bit you need and use that in the FH869. Some photography
shops sell these masks.

If you make your own make sure to not make the rookie mistake and place them
on the scanner upside.
My Agfa has absolute headfits at me when I do that. It's very annoying that
the masks don't come with a "this side up/this way round" marking on them.

Have you Googled for images of same or try Flikr?
