I have a Canon CanoScan 9900F flatbed scanner that will scan medium format film. I put the 35mm film in the slot where the MF film usually goes. I put it right on the glass of the scanner and placed the plastic film mask on top of it to keep it from moving.

do you know if your film holders are anything like the canoscan 8400f's film holders. I tried to put my 35mm in the medium format holder to scan it but no such luck. So you put the negs on t he glass, and then put the film holder over top?

My film holders should be very similar. You tried the same thing I did at first, and you are correct that you can't just put the 35mm in the slot for the MF film. Try putting the film directly on the glass, then put the holder right on top of it, like you said.

If you get those weird "newton rings" when you scan, flip the film over and put the non-shiny side against the glass. You can reverse it in software later.

Scan it like it is MF and you can get the sprocket holes that way. Let me know if you get stuck and I'll see if I can help more. I think these types of scans look really cool, and they are worth the effort!

Totally! I was bummed because last summer I shot a roll, but couldnt scan it in on my scanner, and everyone else I knew that was scanning theirs was using an epson.

Now I just have to track down where that film went.... or shoot new

Speaking of "Holga" you can also get them from Freestyle Camera in California for about $19.95. These are fun little 120 film cameras.

A new addition to the "Holga" line is that there is now a 35mm back for this camera along with a new polaroid back which takes the new 690 film.
