  • Film Sanning Software

    Nikon Scan software is not compatible with MAC Leopard or Snow Leopard. Nikon advised me to locate and purchase 3rd party software (I have a Coolscan V ED) since they will not be upgrading their software. Nice service after the sale, eh? Any thoughts on VueScan versus Silverfast?
