About Nikon

Super Coolscan 8000 ED is a revolutionary multi-film format scanner that offers the highest dynamic range and resolution of any desktop film scanner available today. The Super Coolscan 8000 ED is capable of scanning a variety of film formats, including 35mm, 120/220, 16mm, electron microscope and prepared microscope slides, at true 4,000 dpi optical resolution with image quality equal to drum scanners. Designed for professionals looking to increase productivity and profitability in graphics applications, the Super Coolscan 8000 ED produces large volume, high-speed scans in a fraction of the time of other scanners, saving considerable time and manpower.

Digital ICE3, which works within the Nikon Scan 3.0 software, combines three image correction tools -- Digital ICE , Digital ROC and Digital GEM -- that can be turned on or off to correct and enhance images, reconstruct original color and equalize and manage grain details in film. With Digital ICE3, professional photographers, graphics and archival professionals, in particular, will now be able to restore and catalogue positive and negative images that may be unusable because of fading, under or overexposure or scratches on film and negatives.

The Super Coolscan 8000 ED has a sophisticated imaging system that integrates Nikon's renowned ED glass technology into a Scanner Nikkor lens and proprietary LED technology for accurate color reproduction. It features an optical density of 0 to 4.2 and 4000 dpi for a wider dynamic range and higher resolution than any other desktop film scanner on the market today.

For increased workflow process, the Super Coolscan 8000 ED offers "out of the box" plug-and-play simplicity. Nikon Scan 3.0 software, which acts as an interface between the scanner and computer, makes it possible to preview the image to be scanned, adjust scanner settings and scan the image. Nikon Scan 3.0 offers unprecedented control with features and qualities that are familiar to Adobe Photoshop users.

The Super Coolscan 8000 ED offers the flexibility of thumbnail and batch scanning of 35mm/35mm panorama and medium format (120/220) negatives and slides up to 6x9 cm, and 16mm film. For added versatility, the scanner also has the optional capability to scan electron microscope and microscope slides. Users may also select multi-sample scanning at two, four, eight or 16 times. Images can be scanned through several options, offering greater productivity and time savings: -- 35mm strip film: 1 to 12 frames (2 strips) -- 35mm mount film: 1 to 5 frames -- 120/220 strip film (6x4.5 size): 1 to 4 frames -- 120/220 mount film: 1 to 2 frames -- 16mm film: 1 to 60 frames (3 strips)
