I own a Moviestuff Retroscan Universal and I have a friend who has some World War II 16 mm gun camera footage which he would like to have scanned. The film has vinegar syndrome and is badly deteriorated. Sending it to a specialty laboratory is not an option at this time, at least not until we can identify segments of special interest. Does anyone have suggestions and recommended supplies for handling this film in order to keep from damaging it further and which would give us the best chance to recover a usable scanned image from as much of it as possible?

Eric, so long as the film is flat enough to run through the machine without scraping anywhere in the image, and as long as you clean all the parts that come in contact with film when you're through, in theory at least you should have no problem doing this.
