We have all Flextight film holders always in stock. You can find these and other accessories in our Hasselblad accessories product category.
We advice to use the Hasselblad original holder 6x4,5 (57x45) for scanning 4,5x6cm medium formats instead of the Hasselblad standard original holder 6x6 + 6x4,5 (57x57 + 57x42) which is included in the scope of delivery because the films can be scanned with 4000dpi instead of only 3200dpi.
When working with film strips it can often happen that you accidentally touch the emulsion side of the film. The damage often is irreparable. You can avoid damages to the film material and comfortably insert film strips into the scanner or film holder by wearing fine cotton gloves.
Anti-dust spray is used to clean film material - no matter if it's mounted slides or film strips - by removing dust and fluffs with a flimsy current of air without touching the film material at all. There is no better, more comfortable and more efficient way to clean your film material.
For working with single negatives or positives we highly recommend using tweezers, because otherwise you run the risk of touching and damaging the film.
Those who work with digital images - no matter if they come from a digital camera or from a film scanner - should absolutely calibrate their screen. Without a screen calibration performed with objective criteria you run the risk of wrongly adjusting the settings of the scan or the image editing software, which makes the image look right on your screen, but will cause unnatural alienated colours on other output devices (printer, image service, new screen).
