110 mm shooters, how do you scan images

Like the title says, how do any of you 110 mm shooters scan your images?

i have a bunch of 110mm neg's that my wife shot before we were married, but my Minolta only has carriers that accept 35mm negs and or mounted slides

I have scanned some 110 slides on a flatbed using VueScan. Can't remember if I did any negatives.

I scanned my small amount of 110 film with my Coolscan 5000 and the filmholder. Small as these were and fast as the Coolscan is, I remember it only took about 15-20 seconds to scan.

Not bad for plastic Kodak Instamatic lenses and this Lilliputian film needs all the DPI you can throw at it!

Were you able to use your Minolta filmholders like I showed? I don't know which scanner you have but make sure that the 110 film is squeezed sufficiently so that it doesn't fall into your scanner though.

I tried with very limited success using the film holder. I also tried using glass slide mounts but got too much Gaussian interference . The image quality is really poor, but it is more out of interest for having everything scanned and digitized. This is all thatnis left not scanned

I scanned some 110 shots with an Epson v500 flatbed and while the results weren't great, I'd say they were good so long as you weren't trying to have them digitally reprinted. As a bonus, the v500 is pretty inexpensive. The Coolscan on the other hand, the samples posted above are light years better but it also costs light years more unfortunately.
