I have the V700 scanner and asked the same question. Alesh Slovak of
Avasys (who develops iscan) responded:
The device has a second TPU mode with the larger area which is
available only through the extended command set and while epkowa
does support this extended command set (hence the suggested
fs-blacklist edit) it unfortunately does not support the device's
second TPU mode. It is likely that the situation
is the same for the epson2 backend.
There is a non-open source solution using the V700 scanner 8x10 mode
under Linux: vuescan. I've used it since 2002 and it's a quality
product. Using Vuescan on my Ubuntu system, I've made 8x10 scans of 36
frames of 35mm film and 12 frames of 120 (digital contact sheets).
Vuescan costs $79.95 with a trial edition to see if it works.
(note I have no financial or other interest in the software or company,
other than being a satisfied customer.)
