Good quality, limited value

Daniel McIntyre, Amazon

  • Summary: if you see this be very careful about it. The software is out of date and it is very difficult to get any help in operating it.

The best film scanner

rigurat, Amazon
19 February 2014
  • Summary: Even with the age of this device this machine is probably the best way to scan negative films. Some even say this machine is gold standard. This machine is heavy and is built like a tank. Quality of the scans is also unbeatable. The software originally provided is way out of date, most likely unusable with modern systems. Best to use a modern scanner software replacement like Vuescan for this device.

Fantastic Quality

Paul R. Clark, Amazon

  • Summary: The quality you can achieve scanning on this unit rivals the results achieved from high end drum scanners that were used in the printing industry. These scanners are built very solid.

Works well

  • Summary: Other than the fact that I can only do one slide at a time, the scanner works beautifully. I bought VueScan and Nikon hit it off from the first minute I owned it.

Great product, even used worth the money!

  • Summary: The Nikon Coolscan 5000 ED is the best scanner for 35mm I have ever tested. The slide feeder SF-210 is a must and highly recommended, but not a bargain for its price. Unfortunatley Nikon has all its coolscan scanners discontinued. It's still quick and reliable, even after thousands of scans. The Nikon Service does still service the scanners. The used prices at ebay for the Coolscan have risen in the last months to about double the new price.

Expensive, but worth it.

  • Summary: Fine product. It captures more far more detail than my previous scanner, an Epson V500. I am using it to scan years of negatives and slides into digital form, and I only want to do it once. This is the right machine for the job.

Awesome scanner. Delivers everytime. Cost has always been prohibitive.

  • Summary: I have been after a Nikon Coolscan for a long time. I shied away from them when they were available new as they were quite expensive. Now they are discontinued the price for a secondhand unit is as much as old retail and the demand, if anything, has risen. That said, I decided to jump in as I wanted to have access to the best quality scan available to convert my slides and negatives into digital format.

Easy to use, excellent output, worth every penny and more

  • Summary: Extensive research pointed to this product. After making several attempts over a period of a year I managed to buy this discontinued item. It is everything I expected. Digitizing memories of family that have left us is why I purchased this scanner. I've been able to recover pictures that originally would've never made it into a photo album due to poor quality. Easy to use, excellent output, worth every penny.

Product as good as advertised

09twinsfan, Ebay

  • Summary: This device is as advertised. It does a great job of scanning in detail, and the optional settings provide the opportunity to tailor the image according to the situation - too bright, too dark, wrong ASA film used, etc. I have scanned only slides at this point, but plan to use it for 35mm negatives as well as other size negatives. Overall, I am pleased with this purchase.

Nikon LS5000 is good for volume scanning

usamindy990fvr, Ebay
8 June 2011
  • Summary: I'm not finished with the project yet of transferring 10,000 slides to digital images, but overall, the machine works pretty well for volume scanning. Once in awhile, you get a slide jam. Through research, I found that this machine was the nearest item for home use that had professional quality results. Because it's a discontinued product, I had to run it on an XP computer (not Windows 7). However, this item is still readily available on EBay.
