    Hello everyone,

    I was hoping someone could answer my question about my Canon Canoscan 8800F. I successfully scanned my 35mm film but the MP Navigator EX program cut up all my images. My question is, will this happen when I scan my panoramic film negatives as well? I would try it myself, but my film is sitting at the lab and I am anxious to find out if this will happen with the panoramic film. Will the software recognize that it's panoramic film? I understand everyone is very busy, but any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you in advance,
    Alie

    I know the driver for the 8800F which is identical to the 6800F I use does not automatically cut up the photos you set it not to, it does by default though. There's a button in the top left of the scan window which switches from frame view to platen view. If you simply delete all the selections and make one that covers the entire film platen you get that exactly in the application you are using.

    /EDIT: if the film holder is visible in your selection if fouls up the scanner's exposure. You can select the entire panorama but make sure the holder isn't in the selection

    Hi Garbz,

    Thank you for the quick reply. My only problem now is that I don't see the button in the top left of the scan window. Any other suggestions?

    Thanks again,

    Alie

    [​IMG] That one there?

    Monk of the road your issue is similar. You should NOT mount the film into the 35mm mount, and then hit the button on the top left which switches from auto thumbnail to full platen view.
