Mike Sparks from Focal Point said that the standard procedure for my Epson was to place the neg emulsion-down on the scanner platen, then place the ANR glass over the top to make a sandwich The ANR is supposed to go in between the film and the main scanner glass, because the film touching the glass is what causes the rings. The top glass is just for transparency ANR glass is a defusing medium and generally is on top of the negative in a scanner. In both of my scanners, this yields a print very similar to a Diffusion Enlarger I used in wet lab work for years. Current price for a V600 scanner (120 & 35) is just at $200, or lower on special deals. The ease of the flat bed is well worth the price
There is an anti-glare glass that you can buy at framing shops that will work just as well as AN glass for scanning. Buy a piece of the regular anti-glare glass cut to the size of your scanner bed.

All scans were done using the same default settings at 2400 dpi with auto exposure settings from Epson scan On scanner bed poor focus, in holder better result when film flattened etc. Your last image with ANR glass does seem to have resolved more detail and although it is not clear to me the noise could be either inherent film granularity, normal scanner noise or combination with the glass you used

Look down through the insert's glass to check that all edges and ends of the film are oriented so they are not obscured by the sides OR ends of the film channel.

6×7 negative scanned on an Epson V700 with what people shorten to ANR - anti newton ring glass. Without the anti newton ring glass I had scanned this neg previously (with the V700) and it was newton ring heaven, or hell for that matter. Newton rings are very irritating patterns that appear on glass scanners Holds the film very flat with a piece of ANR glass on top and lets you scan a strip of three 6x6, or two 6x9 at once which is more than can be said for the stock one.

The ANR glass though (Anti-newton-ring which you can see in post #6, shot 2) is fab. I scan all my 120 straight on the glass with the ANR glass on top of it. I also scan my 35mm when I want the sprocket holes in the shot under the same piece of glass. Nick Carver did some great videos which you could link appropriately My testing consisted of scanning a frame with the v500 and leaving it at the Epson Scan defaults. Then I found my light table, grabbed my Epson film holder (no need for ANR glass for DSLR scanning, i think), and a tripod. Then I shot that frame using my Sony RX100 III and my wife's Nikon D610 at various apertures and focal lengths I scan 4X5 B&W negs. with the V800 and have the same problem with dust on the ANR glass - yes, it is plastic and a real pain. I finally decided to do away with the glass. I used an exacto knife and cut the glass (plastic) out along the inner edges of the film holder frame Anyone have any tips or tutorials that consistently outputted successful scans without Newton Rings? I do have two sets of ANR glass as well.

My Film holder for my Epson 4990 does not fit the ANR glass I got from Scan-Tek, Inc. I may get a 120 holder for a V500 or V600 that the glass does fit. I presume they will fit my 4990. Thanks for any tips! I don't have any of their products, but I understand that they are good. I would like to buy one of their negative holders for my Canoscan. The DT ANR Glass Film Carrier is the culmination of years of research into different glasses, coatings, and machining methods designed to eliminate Newton Rings when digitizing film under glass. With the advanced, ultra-fine glass coating formulation used, image sharpness and grain rendition is far superior to legacy scanner glass or drums at high PPI, and the need for wet-mounting is. No film holders, but I planned on using betterscanning anyway and still have ANR glass insert from my last scanner. And it might not be too tough to have a custom piece of glass cut for only 20-30 plus the time to replace it. And who knows, it might not even need replacing.

There is an Epson 120 film holder with ANR glass, but it seems to be a rare beast and it took me a long while to find one. This takes 1 strip of negs and has both the white squares and the spacer feet adjusters, so it seems to be the genuine item for the V700, V750, V800 & V850 All you need is some Kami scanning fluid and some .004 Mylar overlay material. Look for DuPont C-42 4 mil. It's a little messy but it will do the trick. You put a little fluid on the glass the put your film down, then more fluid on top, then the Mylar for the full sandwich, taping the edges to keep the fluid in The V750 comes with an auxilliary glass tray for wet mounting. The tray has raised edges to contain the fluid. I found that the ideal focus on my V750 is on the top surface of the wet mounting tray. After using volatile Kami fluid for a while, I switched to using a sheet of ANR glass to hold the negative flat. I'm scanning HP-5+ 4x5 and 5x7. Good idea about ANR glass. Hope I can find some. Yes, Newton's Rings are an issue. Tried a few things back in the day, including mounting fluid and plastic sheets that were supposed to function like ANR glass
While many forum posts debate which film mounting technique (wet/fluid mount vs. anti-newton ring (ANR) glass holders vs. straight film vs. OEM or 3rd party betterscanning.com holders), scanning software, and software settings, etc is best - I think much of that does ultimately come up to personal preference and experience, the scanner and film For the best results, you could go with ANR glass holders, which would leave the film unmounted, with direct contact with the scanner surface, thus offering the best scan result. Once you have everything set up, first use the compressed air can to blow over the film. This is the first step so as to not scratch the film with dust particles, even. And they lift the negatives just the right amount off the scanner glass to achieve perfect focus (your mileage may vary).
