Reviews and Problems with Nikon SUPER COOLSCAN 5000 ED
Showing 1-10 of 70
Best slide scanner available....
29 June 2015
Summary: Great scanner, still working and no problems at all with drivers on Windows 7 and Windows 8. Vuescan and Silverfast also available in newest versions, in case you do not want to use Nikon Scan. Recommend this scanner to anyone, who needs best results from his analog pictures!
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.
Summary: This is a great professional level scanner. Does a fantastic job on film and transparencies. BUT -- Nikon no longer provides drivers for Windows 7 on 64bit systems. You literally cannot install it on such a system.
Summary: Got the 5000ED new from old stock together with the stack loader in November 2010. Wonderful. Works very well. Previously I have been using the Coolscan V ED. Minor adjustment to the stack loader to adjust pressure and it is trouble free. No jamming in the stack loader.
