What about the Nikon FH-3 film strip holder? Should fit on the LS40...
I have the same issue on my Coolscan V and I hate
it. And I also hate
having to buy something that shouldn't be optional... even if it's cheap. The irony is that I can't find one locally so I will have to order one online enventually and shipping will almost double the price!
At least that wouldn't happen with the glass carrier
