Now boxed up and awaiting collection. Decided to go for a refund as have no faith a replacement would be any better! Wonder if you can claim the customs/vat import duties back?
Back to filming from the screen. Where at least the film is safer, more steady and better colour and exposure! It took me a year or more of humming and harring over going for the Wolverine but alas it couldn't even live up to my lowest expectations!

I am returning mine to the seller after it damaged my positive print of a family do by putting lines THROUGH THE CENTER of the frame and on the edges. I will say this though, I won't blame the seller themselves, who is simply a retailer of different scanners.

Opposite of murphy's law mind, the only print in my collection that I have a negative to go back to where i can get a new positive print made by andec. Those positive prints are not exactly ten a penny, though.

Mine which had damaged every sprocket of two films (not immediately obvious until close inspection) also did scratch down the middle on a copy of other "test" films! Not happy and certainly my really important family films were not going anywhere near it!
Just a pity there isn't a good safe scanner available that isn't in the thousands of pounds. But the market will always be on the small size so guess that situation won't change anytime soon..

I already had scanned a couple of family films as you can see via my previous posts after testing some junker films that were fine. It was when I did the one of the do that the scanner took a shit on me, but that one had a negative (Was a polyester print).
