Steve Sanders takes Nikon's $1695 film scanner for a 'test drive'...
Our friends over at Steve's Digicams have posted their review of Nikon's Super Coolscan 4000ED, a $1695 film scanner first announced on January 9th of this year. Steve's verdict on the scanner?
"Maybe it's a good thing for me (and you) that this scanner didn't come along five years ago or I'd probably still be shooting with a film camera today -- and there would be no Steve's Digicams web site. If you get the feeling that I like this scanner then you'd be right. Considering the price, the technology involved and the results achieved by even novice users the Super Coolscan 4000 is a winner!" Conclusions don't get much more positive than that, and reading Steve's review we can see why he feels this way. Be sure to read the full review yourself, and check out those amazing before/after pictures that demonstrate the scanner's Digital ICE3 technology, which corrects color and removes grain / surface defects...
