    A what!? A 7x17cm?? That sounds odd and no doubt it would present a problem given that the Epson trays only support the 6x17 size, so you're losing the tops/bottoms? Most educational. I wonder if Boots the Pano Man knows about this obscure format...

    A quote of $30 for a 7x17cm drum scans sounds strangely appealing; the end result would be a 70-80Mb for a smallish print (I know one photographer shooting 6x17 and 6x24 who ends up with a 700mb file!!); how big is the file size and intended (300dpi) print? I scan at 4800 then downsample to 300dpi for despecking (6x7, 30x25cm output).

    I'd like to eyeball your 7x17cm; is it a home made Wallace and Grommet or a pro-level get-up. I don't have a pano at present; it's having surgery for focus anomaly.

    7x17 INCH, Gary….

    Big sucker. At the moment, I have to do 2 scans with the 8x10 film guide and stitch them. And, Elements 6 is rat-turd for doing this.

    I have had a film holder made out of ABS plastic, but I need to mill out one more section so that it (hopefully) works on the hi-res lens on the V700.

    But, I'd really like to see a 2400dpi scan of the 7x17! (Over a gig file, I think).

    I have used Image Science in North Melbourne (...or West Melbourne?) in the past, a few years ago though. I know they used Imacon's for their small-medium format stuff, don't recall what their LF setup was though.

    PageSet Australia still has a scanning service - They are located in Mt Waverley, Melbourne.

    They have 2 drum scanners and a flatbed.
    The drum scanners are both Heidelberg, 1 Tango XL and a Primescan which can both do A2 size.
    The flat bed is a Heidelberg TAngo which can do A3 extra.

    Their phone number is (03) 8542 5555 or (03) 8542 5517

    There are a number of programs which handle stitching of panoramas and EVERY ONE of them would have to be better than Elements 6.

    Where are you in Melbourne? If you could get a set of scans to me, I could try stitching them for you. It's a cheaper option

    I'm in Keilor East - North-western suburbs.

    Thanks, JDC. Didn't know about this one!

    Thanks for the offer, Peter! I'm constantly staggered by the generosity of people shooting film.

    Luckily, I recently upgraded to PS CS6. I wanted to get the last of the non-cloud PS as it should have most of the abilities that I'll ever need. Haven't had time to work on a stitched image yet, but I'll let you know how it goes.

    BTW, I'm up in the hills, but will catch up with you one day for a beer/coffee/Urbal tea! Again, thanks for the offer!
