Nikon Super CoolScan 9000 ED Film Scanner - 3 years in use

Flemming Lamberth, Amazon
17 May 2014
  • Summary: Almost 3 years ago I bought af used 9000ED at Amazon. I didn't know what to expect from a used scanner, but af at price at 3500 USD, I hoped to get some value for the money. And I have olny been pleased with the scanner. I have scanned more than 3000 negatives and slides in different film sizes. The scanresults have been better than hoped, and I can only recommend this scanner.

Excellent image, but poor system support

William Chen, Amazon
5 May 2014
  • Summary: I bought this scanner for my new macpro (end 2013), I install two system in my macpro, mac X 10.9.2 and win8.1, but, on the mac system, I was be told the Nikon Scan 4 was for Power PC and can not install, and in the win8.1, the scanner can not be found, now, I have to use my old iMac G5(2005) to scanning the pictures, for the image, I have to say, it is excellent more than you expecting.

Max 6x9 film, linotype-hell quality

Brian, Amazon
31 January 2014
  • Summary: I shoot medium format 120 film and see this scanner supports up to 6x9 size negatives only due to the mechanical motor drive, though not the panoramic 6x12, 6x17 (FH-869S tray film holder supports up to 18cm) - which require stitching. (See page 76 of owners manual, and photo.net discussions) This is still one of the best medium format scanners available less than $10,000 and is used by almost all the major film scanning services like scancafe.com.

  • Summary: This item was abandoned by Nikon and the price skyrocketed. It was once a low cost alternative to the Hasselblad.

trouble in river city

citypound, Amazon
18 April 2011
  • Summary: The scanner works well when it works. But it's very flaky. I've had to send it back 3 or 4 times to get it to work right. Also Nikon gave up on keeping up with the software for mac OS so you need to buy 3rd party soft ware to make it work. Maybe this is why B&H no longer sells it.

Great Scanner but the price?

brandywine, Amazon
15 January 2011
  • Summary: I don't understand why these scanners are being sold here on Amazon at such an inflated price! I own one and only paid $1995 for it 3 yrs ago. I really like this scanner but would never pay over $4,000 for one. They are good scanners but Nikon hasn't updated the firmware to work with Mac 10.6.4 and up and I have heard that they also don't work very well on PC's. It's pretty upsetting after spending so much money on something that may not work in another year.

Good hardware that needs better MacOS software support

M. Weber, Amazon
3 August 2010
  • Summary: The hardware is well designed and provides very good quality scans. I have used it with both Windows XP and MacOS 10.5 (Leopard). This product requires a fairly powerful processor to work well. WIndows XP is not good for memory intensive tasks such as scanning. MacOS is much better for image editing and manipulation in general. The problem is that Nikon has been very slow to release updated versions of the Nikon Scan software for the MacOS 10.5 and 10.6.

Nikon Quality

Henry Alfaro, Amazon
25 November 2009
  • Summary: My product is actually the Coolscan 8000, the predecessor to the 9000. They are almost identical. I would like to provide solutions for some of the people who have commented negatively about this scanner. First don't even consider using the Nikon software. Simply download VueScan from Hamrick software instead.
