The Nikon Coolscan V and Super Coolscan 5000 are film scanners capable of extracting all of the image quality present in 35mm negatives and slides. At under $1000 including film and slide adapters, the Coolscan V is truly an outstanding value. ...Really can't be matched. There is a misconception about installing and using these scanners on modern PC operating systems. Contrary to what may have been the case in the past, both scanners now can easily be installed on any laptop or desktop PC under any 32-bit or 64-bit edition of Windows including Windows 10, and can be operated with Nikon Scan 4, VueScan, or SilverFast software. My personal preference is Nikon Scan 4. Check eBay for newly serviced units.
