You could use the stitch function in Photoshop or an inexpensive software like Panorama Factory to piece together the 8X10 neg from multiple scans. Do it in two or three passes. Three might work better as there is usually a little bit of light fall off at the edges. I think the driver on the scanner may prohibit going any wider. I know the 4870 can do an 8X10.

  My Epson Perfection scanner will scan a maximum negative size of 4x5. I'd like to be able to scan 8x10s with it. The cover/light source for the scanner will only illuminate a small area, so what i'm wondering is this... has anyone fashioned a larger light source for a scanner that covers the entire surface of the scanner bed? Any thoughts?
