Does anyone have experience with wet mounting trannys on a flatbed? I am going to try this, and I have a few questions. In particular, I am curious about whether I need to mount directly to the platen, or whether I can place a sheet of mylar in between the chrome and the platen to protect the scanner glass, with adversly affecting the image quality.
I will be scanning on a recently aquired Linotype Circon, and I have a few questions about that scanner as well, so I am hoping to find someone who has some experience with this dinosaur. My main questions about the Circon are: 1) I know the scanner autofocuses, but I am curious as to whether you can manually focus it using Linocolor? And 2) I am getting weird, "solarized" previews on the Powerbook G3 I am using as a scanning station. I am curious whether anyone else has had that same experience.
Anything else you can tel me about your experiences with the Circon, or with wet mounting would be helpful. (I have done lots of wet mounting before on drum scanners, but never on a flatbed.)
