Idiot students + Aztek Wet scan kit = Dead V750
I'm not the authority by any means on wet scanning, but I've been frustrated enough with residue left on my negs and scanner bed to not want to do it. Plus not done right, without a scanner platform to mount your neg to, and you mount directly to the bed, if that liquid, no matter how quickly it evaporates, gets on your scanner eye/bar bye bye scanner. That was what happened here, get a new wet scan kit, not careful people use it, the scanner can no longer calibrate colors and we've got big blue bars running across every frame. Hence, dead V750.
Just my $0.02 worth, but if you get things up and running it would be great to see some 100% crop selections for comparison.
All the best-
