Procedure scanning negative/film
AMD 8-core cpu
Epson Perfection 3490 photo scanner
Host Ubuntu 12.04 desktop 64bit
Virtualizer Oracle VirtualBox
This is my first time scanning negative/film on Linux. Neither I have a Windows machine here. My old Epson scanner still works without problem on scanning photos.
Click Negative: Invert colors for scanning negatives button
Adjust Autoadjust gamma/brightness/contrast button
all without effect.
The scanned file is attached to this posting.
Please advise how to scan negative/film with xsane? Thanks
(I have considered installing Windows on a VM but I have no experience making a scanner working on it)

Thanks for your thread.
I read similar suggestion on Youtube before, making use of a Single Len Relex Camera. I don't have this device.
Today I visited Canon Show Room Here.

They performed demonstrations, scanning both negatives and photos. Its performance was the same as my old Epson Perfection 3490 Photo,

both scanning speed and quality on negative and photo.
According to their information this scanner can't work on Linux, only on Windows and MAC. But Sane project website confirmed that it was fully supported.

If this scanner works on Debian then it can work on Ubuntu as well.
I'm now installing Windows 7. I'll run Epson driver scanning negatives and photo to check the results. (I couldn't make use of "xsane" on Ubuntu 12.04 scanning negatives).
I'll search whether Epson has newer model scanning both negatives and photo and it works on Linux
