CHECK THE SYSTEM COMPATIBILITY BEFORE YOU BUY!

K. Williams, Amazon
5 May 2014
  • Summary: CHECK THE COMPATIBILITY! I finally replaced my HP running Windows XP with a Dell running Windows 7. When I tried to use the scanner, I couldn't. Why? Because the lazy people over at Nikon don't care if you spent over $2K on a piece of their hardware. They don't.

Vista 64 bit

Gerald Mitchell "1951 Nash", Amazon
2 January 2009
  • Summary: All the good things they say about this scanner is true... Now the bad. It will NOT work on vista 64 bit and it is not supported by Nikon for this operating system. I would forgive Nikon if this were a cheep scanner but at these prices it is unforgivable.

I'll never use a flat-bed scanner again

Amazon Customer, Amazon
5 July 2008
  • Summary: Until now I've been scanning with a flat-bed. I cannot believe how much better the images look coming out of the Coolscan. Someday I may upgrade to a Coolscan 9000, but I will never bother with a flatbed again. And Digital GEM is excellent at removing grain.

Great with color, Good with Black and White

David W. Griffin, Amazon
2 July 2008
  • Summary: It's not fast, but the quality and ease of scanning color slides and negatives is very good and the results are just spectacular. It's very good at getting a good quality scan from less than great slides and negatives. There are a few negatives, though not enough to make me regret my purchase.

Excellent Scanner to Convert Your Collection

Fenway, Amazon
20 June 2008
  • Summary: I purchased this scanner to digitize my color negatives with the intention of selling it when finished. Set up was easy. Results are good to excellent depending on negative condition. I leave ICE and scan image enhancer on all the time and the result is pretty good.

Attention Mac Users

Michael Braun, Amazon
18 May 2008
  • Summary: This is a great product. Robust, well built & fast enough for the occasional slide & negative film scanner like I am. From time to time I still prefer my Nikon F100 film camera over the newer digital D300.

Best tool for the job

Glen A. Sansoucie "gsansoucie", Amazon
1 March 2008
  • Summary: I'd wanted to scan in my 35mm negatives for years, not only archiving all our photos onto CDs that could be stored in a fireproof safe, but organizing them as well. I estimated we had about 3000-4000 photos.

I love it, but...

Pandamonium1362 "Pandamonium1362", Amazon
10 February 2008
  • Summary: I have a collection of slides and negatives that I want digitized so I can enjoy them. I am computer literate and with the purchase of this scanner I now have 3 scanners (flatbed, dedicated document scanner and a negative/slide scanner). There are 2 drawbacks to this scanner: a) it's very slow.

Reclaim Your Slides and Negatives

R. Martin "rormeister", Amazon
19 January 2008
  • Summary: I know many photographers who have shot hundreds if not thousands of Ektachrome or Kodachrome slides in the past. Face it, the slides are getting older and you need to convert them to digital images. The Coolscan V will do the job beautifully.
