ICE is typically a combination of hardware/software feature, and the hardware ICE does not work with B&W film since it uses IR. So if Nikon V works with B&W dust removal, then it's probably just a property of whatever software you are using, and has nothing to do with the hardware scanner per se

For clarity.... The V600 is a current scanner (for sale on Epson's website, also Dell, also Amazon). The V7xx has been replaced by the V8xx, replacing the CFL lighting with LED.

All three models (and the V500/550) have an infrared scanning channel which is utilized by the scanning software to detect and map out dust and scratches.

Under Silverfast, this is called iSRD, and in EpsonScan is called Digital ICE. If your film has silver content, or is fantastically dense (Kodachrome), then you need to use what Silverfast calls SRDx and Epson calls "Dust Removal", which is a software-only solution that attempts to detect and repair anomalies.

Regardless, ICE is not just hardware. There has to be a software component to reconstruct the blocked portion of the negative, even in the Coolscan.

ICE is not hardware at all. It is patented software that uses various hardware when that hardware has contracted (paid for) with whoever it is that owns the patents today.

I doubt new V600 is actually deliverable, though it is listed "for sale" with Epson, Dell, and inevitably Amazon.

Wouldn't be the first time I'm wrong.

But in any case, who would buy a new V600 except from Epson's refurbs?

Hi, I am new. I was just tinkering with the old man's Retina A1, passed on to me, but never used it.
So I thought to turn the knob just in case there was still some film in it. There was.

How long do those keep?

depends on a lot of things. But I've processed film that had been in an attic for 20 years and got usable images. Not the best quality mind you, but I knew that going in.

Give it a try and see what you can get.

Thanks, adeyoujo

I went right to it, but it was empty. So that turned out to be a little less exhilarating than I had hoped.

It looks like he was over there as late as last month...

As an established customer of his that has purchased from him in the past, I tried to be a repeat customer in the past year.

Doug didn't return any emails nor did he fulfill two orders I placed with him.

There's nothing more frustrating to me than to have to work hard to try to purchase something and be completely ignored.

I don't give a flying F what else may be going on in his life or if he's not getting rich from it. If you have a freaking business that's in the public eye and is taking orders, then treat it as such.

F him.
