The Digital Time Machine - The Coolscan V ED is an affordable, high-performance film scanner that is designed to be easy to operate for first-time scanner users. For some film camera users, their best digital camera may, in fact, be their own film SLR camera. By using the Nikon Coolscan V ED, a Nikon N75 or N80 can produce digital scans at close to 22-megapixel resolution.

The Coolscan V ED is perfect for those looking to bring old images back to life and preserve memories with better-than-original quality. Imagine removing scratches from a 1950s family reunion shot or sending your parents their wedding portrait looking better than the day it was taken. It's more than film scanning -- it's Timemachineography.

With an optical resolution of 4,000 dpi and 14-bit A/D input conversion, the Coolscan V ED is the perfect tool for a home user or photo hobbyist looking to enhance their own film photography experience. A new plug-and-play USB 2.0 interface even improves the speed of image transfer. Scan speed is also surprisingly fast - the Coolscan V ED can scan an image in only 38 seconds (including image transfer and display) - making the entire process smoother and easier from start to finish.

Comments about Nikon Coolscan V ED Scanner:

I had had another film scanner from aonther manufacturer that gave up the ghost several years ago. The problem with that one was that it and my OfficeJet all-in-one did not work together. When I bought the Nikon scanner I was worried that this might happen again. It didn't and I'm very pleased. The scanner is easy to use and my wife and I have had great fun scanning in slides and negatives that I took years ago. The scanner always works and is quite easy to use.

Comments about Nikon Coolscan V ED Scanner:

I don't think this product is for everyone.

Unless you have a large quantity of negatives that you want to digitize and make an archive of your work. It can be personal, but it is more useful for a business that needs things updated.

One problem is that it somewhat takes time to read the negatives. The set-up is easy and software is easy to use. I recommend having other image editing programs to use as well.

Great product if you have the need for it.
