Queston is if it is a projection or only some inforcement for the
usual scanner lamp. I don=B4t know, was not thinking that deep about it.
I succeeded in scanning medium format negatives on an usual scanner
(umax astra 1200 S).

This is the test arrangement:
| strong halogen light
v diffusor from glas and matt paper
| negatives, films
v glass of the scanner

Now I could scan something like contact sheets and medium format
negatives in coarse quality.

May be this helps you.

Best regards,
