My medium format film does not fit in the film holder correctly. What should I do?

  • Do the following:
    1. Place the medium format film in the holder with the shiny side face up so that images and any wording on the film strips are not backward.
    2. Make sure the film is placed between the film guide tabs and resting on top of the film lock bevels as shown.

      1 Film lock bevel
      2 Film guide tab
      3 Film holder cover
      Caution: Place the film on top of the film lock bevels. Forcing the film beneath the beveled edges will damage the film.
    3. Make sure that the entire image frame is positioned in the film holder opening, with the film centered and sitting on top of the film lock bevels.
    4. Gently close the film holder cover and press it down until it clicks into place. Also press down all the edges of the cover to secure it. Make sure the film is not pinched or curled.

    Note: The film holder cover may not hold the outer edges of the film completely flat against the clear plate; this is normal and will not affect the quality of the scanned image.
