Setting up wet scans

Here I'd like to introduce you to and show you how to create a wet scan mount. The concept of oil or fluid mounting scan has been used for decades by high-end drum scanner operators to create the very highest quality scans from films. The way this works is you have a more simplified, more direct light path through your film which reduces dispersion and reflection of light, and therefore reduces optical aberration such as Newton rings. In addition putting in a wet scan mount gives you a much flatter surface which gives you more consistent focus, and you'll get greater detail than you seek in a dry scan, you get better color saturation, superior sharpness, improved contrast, much expanded dynamic ring, and even you can minimize and even visually remove scratches because the oil fills in the scratches.

Let me show you a demo about how this works. Here we have this beautiful micaceous schist, this white mica-schist and this represents a nice dry scan. Notice everything looks very nice...
