Indicator lamp
Turning on the scanner
Turn on the scanner with the power switch. Start up the
computer.
Power switch
When launching the DiMAGE Scan Utility, the indicator lamp
will blink when the scanner is initializing. Once the indicator
lamp glows steadily, the scanner can be used.
When using an IEEE1394 interface with Windows Me,
always shut down the computer before turning the scanner
off. Otherwise a system error may result.

Loading the film holders
Handling film
To achieve the best possible reproduction from the scanner, the film and film holder should be
free from dust and dirt. Always work with processed film in a clean, dust-free environment. Handle
film by the edges or mount to prevent fingerprints and dirt marring the image area. Special lint
free gloves are available from photographic equipment retailers for film handling as well as antistatic cloths, brushes, and blowers for removing dust. Film cleaner can be used to remove oil,
grease, or dirt from film; carefully follow the manufacturer's instructions and precautions for the
film cleaning solvent.
Where is the emulsion?
When film is scanned, the emulsion side of the film should be down. When viewing the film image,
if the image is orientated correctly rather than a mirror image, the emulsion side is facing down. If
the image is abstract or symmetrical so its orientation is difficult to determine, the emulsion is
down if the frame numbers and edge markings can be read correctly. With mounted slides, the
emulsion is on the same side of the mount as the film manufacturer's or processor’s name is
printed.
Loading 35mm film strips
Film strips of up to six frames can be
loaded into the FH-M10 film holder. To
open the holder, lift the latch and open
the cover (1).

With the emulsion down, place the film
in the holder and under the retaining
tabs. Align the film with the frame
apertures. The up arrow on the the
film holder indicates the orientation
of horizontal images.
Carefully lower the cover until the latch clicks into
place. Take care not to move the film during this operation.

Loading mounted slides
Up to four mounted 35mm or APS slides can be inserted into the slide mount holder. The slide
mounts must be between 1 mm and 3.2 mm thick to fit the holder. Glass mounts cannot be used;
the glass refracts the light resulting in distorted and unevenly illuminated scans. Do not leave slide
mounts in the holder.
To open the holder, lift
the latches and open
the cover.
Insert the slides into
the holder emulsion side
down. The slide must be parallel
with the length of the holder otherwise
the top and bottom of the image area will be
cropped. The up arrow on the the film holder indicates the orientation of horizontal images.
When the slide mount holder is in the scanner, the
last slide can be removed and a new slide inserted
without ejecting the holder. When replacing slide,
take care not to change the holder position. A prescan should be made each time a slide is inserted;
refer the DiMAGE Scan manual.

Scanner notes
Compatibility with the DiMAGE Scan Utility
The DiMAGE Scan software is compatible with many of Minolta’s high-end film scanners. This
means only one scanner driver needs to be installed on a computer with multiple scanner models
connected.
Because of the differences in specifications between scanners, some of the DiMAGE Scan functions cannot be used with this scanner model. The following functions in described in the DiMAGE
Scan software manual are not available:
Digital ROC
Digital GEM
Film format and type settings
When scanning, the film type must be selected in the main window of the DiMAGE Scan Utility.
This scanner does not use glass holders and so the holder-type drop-down menu is deselected
and the film format cannot be changed. See scanner setup in the basic-scanning section of the
software manual.
Film type can be selected between color and black and white, positive and negative film. Film for
prints is negative film. Slide film is positive film.
Scanner resolution
The maximum resolution for this scanner is 5400 dpi. The input resolution that can be entered in
the DiMAGE Scan Utility is from 337 dpi to the maximum resolution of 5400 dpi.
Scanner color profiles
When the DiMAGE Scan Utility is installed, the scanner profiles listed below are automatically
installed for this model scanner, see the software manual for location. These profiles have been
included for advanced color matching with profile-to-profile conversions in sophisticated imageprocessing or DTP applications. When using these profiles, the color reproduced may not be the
same as the color matching system in the utility software. See the color matching section in the
DiMAGE Scan software manual for the profile location.

Minolta History
On February 20th, 1962, John Glenn became the first American to orbit the Earth. On board
his Friendship 7 spacecraft was a Minolta Hi-matic camera to record that historic event. The
4 hour, 55 minute, and 23 second flight orbited the Earth three times at an average speed of
28,000 kph (17,500 mph).
Mr. Glenn visited our Sakai camera factory in Japan on May
24th, 1963 to plant a palm tree to celebrate the occasion. The
palm tree is still in the courtyard of the factory and stands over
eight meters tall (26ft).
The camera? It was not lost. It is on display at the
Smithsonian Institution’s National Air and Space
Museum in Washington D.C. This and other objects
from John Glenn’s Friendship 7 Mercury flight can
be found in galley 210, “Apollo to the Moon.”

Closing the scanner door
The front door closes automatically when the film holder is
removed. The door must be closed for the scanner to initialize.
If the door does not close automatically, it can be closed
manually with the supplied reset tool. Insert the tool into
the hole on the side of the scanner until the latch releases
the door. Do not force the tool into the scanner.
The reset tool can be stored in a special clip on the front
feet on the bottom of the scanner unit. Slide the tool
between the front and back retaining clips, see illustration.
