The Variable Height Dual MF Film Holderä for Epson® 4870 and 4990 Scanners
The optimum film suspension height for your particular scanner unit may actually vary from the standard 1 mm suspension height provided by your current holder. A variable height holder allows you to compensate for this difference!
Allows you to easily scan two whole strips of 120/220 film frames at one time!
Designed to work with the:
Epson® 4870 (See photo-i for an excellent review of this scanner)
Epson® 4990 (See photo-i for an excellent review of this scanner)
Additional advantages compared to the fixed height version of the Dual MF Film Holderä :
Enables you to get sharper scans from your scanner if your scanner's true optimum suspension height varies from the standard suspension height of your current film holder. It is like adding a focus adjustment function to your scanner.
Provides a method to adjust the the film suspension height compared to a OEM Epson® holder by any increment up to about 3 mm (more is possible via simple user-friendly modification).
Special order versions are available that allow you to achieve suspension heights lower than the OEM Epson® holder - down to .5 mm. Which do you need? See the .5 mm version's special notes found here: .5 mm vs. 1 mm info link.

Overall Advantages shared with the fixed height version of the Dual MF Film Holderä :
Enables you to work faster, more efficiently and safely with your medium format film
Allows you to scan two whole strips of film at once (up to 205 mm in length)
Be more efficient doing other tasks while the scanner is scanning multiple images without needing your intervention!
Makes batch scanning an easy option for medium format film with the standard EpsonScan software as well as Silverfast Ai and VueScan software
Minimizes the need to reposition your film, therefore less handling of your film means less chance of damage from fingerprints, dropping your film on a dirty surface, etc.
Infinitely variable scanning length with the T-Lock system (includes 8 T-Locks)
Helps maintain flatness with your film even if the film is cut to odd lengths because the T-Lock inserts can be placed at any position within the film channel of the Dual MF Film Holderä . (T-locks do require about 4 mm of frame spacing between frames if you don’t want any masking to occur.)
Allows you to crop down to just one film frame in a strip for maximum flatness of that film frame during scanning if so desired
Suspends film in the film holding channel at the same approximate height as the factory Epson® holder
Allows you to scan panoramic images made on 120/220 film (While often not necessary, panoramic shooters using 6x12 and larger may wish to consider the optional ANR Insert.)
No annoying dust or fibers like often produced by ragboard and cardboard based holders
No magnetic materials used in its construction (for those who are worried magnetic materials could potentially affect a scanner’s performance)
Accepts 120 and 220 films that meet the ANSI width standards
Durable construction that is professionally computer cut using highly accurate laser technology
Solid construction – a new three layer construction that is even more solid than the highly regarded original MF Film Holderä !

Pays for itself quickly by allowing you to be more efficient with your time
