Nikon Super Coolscan LS 9000

Medium format film scanner

I've owned this scanner from new for just under a year and in that time I have scanned all the Medium format transparencies that I have needed to. In all thats no more than 150 scans! I believe this was one of the last scanners of its type to be sold new in the UK. The scanner works perfectly and produces beautiful 4000 dpi scans. The scans are great, there is great detail in shadow areas and images always look sharp even without sharpening in photoshop. The scanner lens is an ED lens which basically means that the lens is high quality and sharp! ED glass allows all colours in the spectrum to focus at the same physical point - all pro lenses are ED.  The digital ICE 4 always makes the scans look clean and clear from dust and give you worry free scanning.The discs are included as well as the manual. 2  film holders are included, one for 35mm strips and one for medium format. A firewire cable and mains lead are also supplied as well as the original box.  

Overview:  Maximum 4000dpi scans, 16bit scanning, Nikkor ED lens, IEEE1394, Digital ICE 4 Advanced.

Digital ICE-4 Advanced
Comprises four cutting-edge image-correction components which help ensure superior image quality and operational efficiency.
    • Digital ICE - Image Correction & Enhancement.
      Digital ICE removes defects or scratches on the surface of the film with out losing any details or any other elements of the original image*

      Digital ROC brings faded color of old films or slides back to life. Enjoy vibrant, faithfully rendered images.
    • Digital GEM - Grain Equalization & Management
      Digital GEM reduces the effects of film grain. The resulting images are sharp, clear and devoid of grain clumping or graininess.
    • Digital DEE - Dynamic Exposure Extender

Scan Image Enhancer
Provides one-touch image correction. Automatic brightness and color saturation adjustments with no complicated control settings, make it easy to produce images with optimal contrast.
Multi-sample Scanning
Removes virtually all the noise that can appear after only one scan and helps produce rich, noise-free images. By making as many as 16 passes, it ensures faithful reproduction with smoother gradation.

Small dent at rear of scanner when my computer speaker fell off the window sill onto the scanner - this is purely cosmetic and does not affect scanning quality. Still the great quality you would expect from this superb machine!
