Summary: I paid a lot less than current prices for this...I think my cost was around $2K. At today's price I would not buy it new. I'd spend the money on a great Nikon digital cam or Canon, etc. I've scanned dozens of rolls of 120 film with it.

Summary: . This review was written for Ebay in 2008. With it's successor going for twice as much on the used market (when it can be found) and Nikon's shipping schedule as inconsistent as it can be just when your looking for the newer LS-9000, the 8000ED becomes a real alternative, especially when, with a...
Summary: Its a great scanner, the best, a little slow sometimes but the results are great, with the correct software its how it should be used, nikon or silverfast, it&amp;apos;s a great purchase, i do scan 35 mm and a 120 film, i do have the glass film holder for scanning 120, and the results are great.
Summary: When Nikon discontinued the 9000 scanner, the price shot into the stratosphere. So what's serious film photographer supposed to do now? At less than half the price of the 9000, the 8000 does almost the same job, though a little slower.
Summary: Many reviewers slam this product for the film holder, the lines in the dark areas, and no detail in the highlights, but they do not understand the principles of scanning and perhaps of photography in general.
Pros: High quality scans, Easy to use software
Cons: if any, its an older model, so parts and service may be hard to come by.
