Mike,
You lost me with high/low focus. My Wolverine does not have any focus ability. Or have I been missing something??!!

On the Pro, I believe it's referred to as Sharpness (low, med, high). I keep mine set at low to cut down on the artifacts.

Hi, Im new here. I have the Somikon scanner. I hade the same problem with jittery footage.
I find out that there was a too high pressure on the film via the metal plate with 2 screews. I removed the 2 screews and made the springs shorter (just cliped of 2 rounds). Mounted it back and all the jitter was gone.
The (too high) pressure made it the mechanism to slow with random positions of the frames as result.
And You may need to use a drop box for the film. Otherwise may the pick-up spool move the film randomly.
If You will test this, don't shorten the springs to much. Some friction is needed to stop the film transport at the right position.

Ben You said that this was you second scanner what was wrong with the first one? I am in a similar boat to you. Where my new scanner has so far never produced any decent results. And worse is damaging the sprocket holes of the film as well! Did any of your films suffer any change to the sprocket hole after running through the scanner?
When your first scanner was replaced did you have to pay any customs duty to get it sent to you! Cheers bill
