I need a scanner for mid-format negatives in which light is beamed from one side through the film and registered digitally on the opposite side. What is the terminology for such technology so that I can search for it. What I don't want is document scanner technology in which the light source and digital registration is on the same film side, with a white background reflecting the light on the opposite film side. Anyone?

It's called a transparency adapter/head. With canon scanners, just look for the letter "f" at the end of the scanners model number LiDe 8800f for example - which I own. Scans 35mm and 120/220 format. Been replaced by the LiDe9000f.

The Epson v500 though v750 are the same. At least I think the v500 can scan 120. I used to own an Epson 1250, which could scan everything upto 5x7 film/plates. Putting cling-film on the platen allowed me to make some very nice fruit slice scans.

Finally, there are some dedicated 120 film scanners. Unlike 35mm (where prices start at 100) these are really expensive - in excess of 2000. Unless you're a professional (or just rich) a flat-bed scanner is the best option.

Thanks greatly. That was exactly the information I needed. Sorry for the delayed response. This blog lost my username.
