I'm still using my V500 for 120, mainly because I have a betterscanning holder. The V750 120 film holder doesn't hold film flat, and my betterscanning holder doesn't really work with the V750.
Ah - yeah I've struggled with the Epson-included one. I can generally get it pretty close with careful pressure and positioning as I'm closing the latch, but it's a PITA.
I've considering the betterscanning variety a few time (they're in OR, aren't they?) Do they offer a separate holder distinctly for the 700 series?

**edit - answered my own question by visiting the site again. are you using the ANR inserts, or just the holder with t-locks?

For the V700/750, betterscanning just sell glass inserts that fit in the Epson holder. The V500 betterscanning holder does kinda work in the V750, but because of its height, you have use the scanner in the Film (with Film Area Guide) setting, and that means you can't use Digital ICE.
I should get some ANR Inserts for my V750. I get good enough results from the V500 and 120 to print up to 18"-20" tall.

Was really impressed with the 67 165/2.8 on the 645 last week - shot a couple test shots for a quick head-shot shoot I'm doing for my gal's sister.
Definitely going to use this guy for this purpose more often - really happy with results.

I have no idea what's going on here, but the photograph is very nice. What's up under the eaves? The reflections are like hangings on a wall, and then the bag, and chairs in front of the door. Really interesting. I like the house. Unused hose, too, I guess, good green balance. But then ready for holidays! Nice humor in this...

Here's one for all the Star Wars fans anxiously awaiting the opening of the new move Friday, December 18th.

I took this picture in August 1977 (Pentax KX shooting Kodachrome 64) when I was in LA and I did see the original Star Wars movie in this theater. (Yes the line-ups were terrible but worth it)

The very first movie that I ever saw in a theater was Return of The Jedi. I was 3 1/2 years old.

Hey! Same for me, except it was Empire Strikes Back and I was about 5 1/2. Not positive it was my first movie, but it's the first one I remember vividly. I remember clutching my mom's sleeve for 10 minutes after the Wampa scene on Hoth - watching the movie over her shoulder by looking at the reflection in the glass on the projector booth. That thing scared the hell out of me.

That house is part of a neighborhood that was built in the late 60s/early 70s. My friend and I nicknamed it Egglestonville
I really like that particular house, but it is a odd house. The siding, chairs, green plastic, etc. all made me want to photograph it.
Up in the eave are vents of some sort.
