35mm Film Holder for Dimage Scan Elite 5400 II

I’ve had a 5400 scanner for years and with the passage of time, I’ve lost the Film Holder

Now, with the C-19 lockdown and with time to spare, it’s frustrating that I cannot get my negatives scanned

The part number is FH-20M and if anyone has one spare or knows where there is one, please do let me know

Alternatively, is there a holder from another device that is known to fit tmy scanner, for instance the FH-U1 holder for the Konica Minolta Dimage Scan Dual II?

All advice and assistance gratefully received

Hi - I came across your post re. the Minolta 5400 scanner film holder. I am in the same boat - I need that part. Did you eventually succeed in your search for part number FH-20M?

I’m liquidating my father’s estate; I want to list his Minolta Dimage Scan Elite 5400 scanner for sale but I’m not sure how much of a price it will command without the film holder.

Do you happen to know, is part FH-20M used to hold both film (negatives) and slides for that scanner? Or is a slide holder a different part number?

Hi Ted,

For the Konica-Minolta Dimage Elite 5400 Scan II

The Slide carrier is the SH-M20 and this allows up to four slides to be scanned in a single batch

The corresponding Negative carrier is the FH-M20 and that allows a negative strip of up to six images to be loaded

The two are not interchangeable except if you cut your negatives strip into individual images and then loaded each into a slide holder - all very involved and time consuming

For my part, I eventually found my own FH-M20 which was a relief as I was unable to locate another one anywhere

I’m looking for SH-M20 as well. Will you please let me know where you found it? Thank you.
