Coolscan III (LS-30) Review

By Thom
13 November 2009
  • Conclusion: Nikon's original entry-level scanner with ICE, the Coolscan III is good enough for all but the most demanding work. Worth checking out if you can find a good condition used model at a reasonable price. Replaced by the ~US$900 Coolscan IV ED, which should produce even better scans (gamma 3.6, 2900 dpi).
  • Pros: Small footprint, fast scans, repeatable results, came with required SCSI card (for Windows users).
  • Cons: Supplied software is awkward, ICE isn't a big benefit, works better with Silverfast software, takes some time to find optimal setup.

Testbericht Nikon Diascanner CoolScan III (LS-30)

  • Conclusion: Jeder, der seine alten Dias oder Negative irgendwann einmal in den Rechner bringen will, kommt um einen richtigen Diascanner nicht herum. Während normale Flachbildscanner mit Diaaufsatz nur Notlösungen sind, und Diascanner in der Klasse unter 500 € eine ziemlich bescheidene Bildqualität liefern, ist der Coolscan III LS-30 genau das Richtige für den Privatmann, der nicht allzu viele Bilder hat.
