    I've only used my Epson 2450 for 35mm negs.  The scanner comes with a
plastic holder that accomodates two strips of 35mm negs in groups of six.  I
know there are also two other plastic holders for other types of film, but I
haven't used them.  I've been very pleased with the Epson, having had it for
about four months now.
