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 you're looking to them for the newer LS-9000, the 8000ED becomes a real alternative, especially when, with a little research, you begin to realize that even though the 9000 solved the few problems the 8000 has, those problems are minor and always ready for a simple work around that can result in scans to be proud of even if the process might become somewhat lengthened. In the end it's about image quality; color, contrast and resolution along with a basis for beautiful output. At today's used price, the Coolscan LS-8000ED is more than hard to beat. The gratification your film should engender as it moves to be seen in the digital world will come well within reach with the 8000ED.
Bought this scanner used when I went I got a medium format camera.... The results are amazing. Nikon ICE removes any dust or scratch on the negative and leaves you with a perfect image.The combo of Mamiya 645AF medium format camera and this scanner caused me to change back to film from digital. The image quality is FAR superior to ANY 35mm SLR ... film or digital.
the most useful info i can tell you is that i have had $15 drum scans done for me of medium format and 3 out of 4 look great and are about 100mb. this scanner blows them away !!! i have to scan all of my medium format and on location 35mm film. bit difficult to set up but got it working. one scan got 230mb on medium format 160vc film. jaw dropping detail, then next scan was off by half a frame. made the fatal mistake of touching the film tray and it jammed up and wont reset. this thing is VERY sensitive so watch it. now i have to send it for service. still happy i got one just wish it would have been as durable as a tank since it weighs as much as one.
Excellent peice of technology. Sharp scans with accurate colors from all supported formats. Great color fidelity, lattitude and detail. Digital ICE is magic! Excellent and powerful software!
I have dedicated HOURS to EACH scan from my Epson with the better scanning holder trying to coax the detail and dynamic range out of the files that this scanner captures in the ORIGINAL FILE!
The detail I get for 6x9cm scans on this scanner matches/surpasses what I get out of my epson from 4x5 film!
J'ai acheté cet excellent scanner Nikon aux States à un vendeur que je classe en premier parmi tous les vendeurs que j'ai fréquentés sur eBay. Le prix US était bien meilleur que celui que l'on trouve en Europe (le scanner n'est plus fabriqué par Nikon) et il fonctionne comme le (nouveau) Coolscan 9000ED avec son software 4 version Vista. C'est donc un produit que je recommande si vous avez confiance dans le vendeur et dans l'état annoncé de son produit. Mais attention : aucun (bon) vendeur américain ne s'autorise à baisser le prix de vente pour la douane ou à déclarer l'article vendu comme un "gift". Donc attendez-vous à une note suplémentaire "salée" de 20% environ à payer à la livraison en France.
