I shoot both 6x6 and 6x7 formats. There are no problems with 6x6 - I cut it as 3,3,3,3 frame pieces to fill a 4-row sleeve and have no problem scanning them in my Nikon 9000. However, if I cut 6x7 film using 3,3,2,2 scheme I'm in trouble:
- 3 frame pieces barely fit a sleeve row (can live with it though)
- I don't know how to scan the 3rd frame because the scanner only detects first two (offset doesn't help for 3rd frame)
I found a workaround though; I select film type as 6x9 and use positive offset so the last frame on film fits 2nd 6x9 frame of the scanner and then crop. It's unhandy (have to guess the offset) but I don't want to cut a film as 2,2,2,2,2 and waste an extra sleeve for storage. What would you recommend?
