Negative Holder for scanning

    Hello

    I have some negs that I want to scan, but the holder that came with my
    epson scanner does not keep the negs flat, so the scans come out
    blurred, even though the negs are pin sharp.

    So, does any one know where I can get a 35mm neg holder (preferably in
    the UK) - something that holds a strip of negs, which then has cross
    parts that go accross the gaps between the negs to keep the whole
    thing a flat as possible? Hope that makes sense...

    A 6x6 version would be handy as well :)

    Cheers
    Ice

    I occasionally scan 120 negatives with my Epson flat bed: a piece of clean
    glass works well and I have not seen Newton rings.
