Nikon 8000 scanner, how do you clean the glass film holder?

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by nobody nowhere, Jul 19, 2004.

  1. I get Newton rings (rarely), and also traces of what might be imperfect
    glass cleaning. I wash the glass with an ordinary washing up liquid,
    and dry it with a soft clean handkerchief, the best I can. Any better
    ideas?

    Hi,
    I use ClearVue as a cleaner. Works very well and doesn't leave streaks.
    Lint free cloth is a given.
    Then use isopropyl alcohol to remove any residue.
    Last, and most important, I use these micro-fiber cloths.

    Absolutely the best improvement to photography since Ansel Adams.

    I think it is a smart idea to clean the _underside_ of a scanner's glass
    table from time-to-time. The out-gassing of the plastics in the scanner
    lays down a thin film over time. Similar to what you see on the inside
    of the windshield (windscreen) of a car -- tho', that is aggrevated by
    the temps that the interior of a car is exposed to.

    Now, whether or not your scanner's manufacturer has made it easy to
    get to the underside of the glass is something else altogether.
