Dear Rachel

My understanding is that the 6cm limit arises from the size of the linear CCD detector in the scanner. So I don't think you can get extra width by modification of the negative holder. The length is not really limited by the holder and you may be able to scan further if the software allows. Our negatives, though, are mostly label beyond 8.5 cm. Hence for us there is not much data to be gained in this direction, unfortunately.  

Best wishes
