Scanning 4 x 5 negs

Got an Epson V500. Don't have a mask for 4 x 5 film. Can it still be scanned on it?

I am not sure, but isn't the light source in the lid of your scanner too narrow?

Yep Steve, that is what it looks like. Wonder if one needs a special sheet film scanner?

The special scanner is called a V700/V750. Both of these Epson models has a 4x5 negative holder. Up from that is the Hasselblad X1 film scanner at $15,495.00 USD or a commercial drum scanner or a commercial flatbed.

Being too poor for the other options, I bought a V700 for my 4x5 work.

Steve - The V700 can do 8x10 negs, correct? How do you like the results from the scanner? Are you doing any liquid mounting or anything fancy? Thanks in advance!

8x10 directly on the glass using the low resolution optical path. For smaller formats, liquid mount is an option with an appropriate negative holder system, but I have not yet explored that route. I have only used the holders that shipped with the scanner.
