FH869S

This is Nikons glassless film holder.  Many of our customers have adapted this holder for use with glass.

To use our glass with the LS-8000 glassless holder you first need to remove the film hold downs from the holder. This is done using small jewelers screw driver or knife blade.  The hold down hinges are held in place by small “bumps” on the hinge arms, which insert into small holes in the base.  Place the screwdriver blade between the hinge arm and holder base then gently bend the hinge arm in.  The bump will easily come out of its’ hole and release the hinge.

After removing the hold downs, use a sheet of clear glass on the bottom, place the film emulsion down, and the AN glass on top, etched side down. You may want to use a small amount of tape to hold this assembly in place. 

Some customers use only a single sheet of AN glass in this holder.  They put the film in the base down and the AN glass on top, etched side down.  This more closely places the film in the same focal plane as when the holder is used without glass.

Our glass part numbers for this holder are FH869SAN (AN glass) and FH869SCLR (clear glass)

FH869GR

This holder is used for medium format film and is designed to adjust the angle of the film +/-5%. This helps in aligning a horizon in panoramic film for example. Our glass replaces the top sheet of glass.  Nikon recommends that you use their supplied film mask to mount your film. Then place it in the holder emulsion down and close the top.

Our glass part numbers for this holder are FH869GRAN (AN glass) and FH869GRCLR (clear glass)

FH3-FH835

This holder is used to scan strips of 35mm film and is designed to be used without glass.  Some customers have modified the holder to use a piece of AN glass on top of the film to hold it more flat than the original design allows.

Using glass in this holder requires removing the plastic top half of the film holder.  Once removed the film is placed in the bottom half of the holder, emulsion down.  Then AN glass is placed on top etched side down.  The holder housing can then be closed and film scanned.   The frame stops which are built into this holder will still work normally.

Our part numbers for this holder are FH835AN and FH835CLR.
