About this item

Engineered to meet the exacting standards of imaging professionals, the SUPER COOLSCAN 9000 ED is designed to handle a broad range of film formats such as 35mm, 120/220, 16mm, 6 x 7, 6 x 9 film, electron microscope and more. True 4,000 dpi optical resolution, 16-bit A/D conversion of the input signal and a 16-bit output combine to deliver brilliant, color-true images.

Users in fields such as advertising and studio photography who regularly work with 120/220 format films will value the SUPER COOLSCAN 9000 ED's versatility and superior scan quality. Photo enthusiasts who own medium-format cameras will also appreciate this high-performance, high-quality scanner.

A true optical resolution of 4,000 dpi and 16-bit A/D conversion allow the SUPER COOLSCAN 9000 ED to produce images of incredible overall quality, and a broader dynamic range helps reveal the details concealed within the darker portions of a scene. Multi-sample scan capability of as many as 16 passes ensures faithful reproduction with smoother gradation. Newly developed high-quality 3-line CCD sensors contribute to high image quality, as well as fast scanning (35mm: 40 seconds; 6 x 9: 185 seconds).

Driving the unmatched performance of the SUPER COOLSCAN 9000 ED are Nikon's exclusive core technologies. Scanner Nikkor ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass lens elements offer superior edge-to-edge sharpness, definition and contrast, and superb color fidelity. The scanner also employs Nikon's proprietary rod dispersion LED illumination no maintenance, no warmup time, and no risk of heat-related damage to films.

For consistently accurate representation of color on monitors and prints, the SUPER COOLSCAN 9000 ED features the Nikon Color Management System (Nikon CMS). The ability to manipulate color data in multiple RGB color spaces results in extremely high precision. These technologies form the backbone of a premier optical system that produces images of amazing quality.

The SUPER COOLSCAN 9000 ED also features unparalleled image restoration capabilities. Digital ICE4 Advanced, the newly upgraded digital image correction technology, consists of Digital ICE (Image Correction & Enhancement), Digital ROC (Reconstruction Of Color), Digital GEM (Grain Equalization & Management), and a newly added component, Digital DEE (Dynamic Exposure Extender).

The SUPER COOLSCAN 9000 ED's exclusive Digital ICE Professional is now also compatible with Kodachrome film. For brightness and color saturation adjustment that's one-touch simple, Scan Image Enhancer is also on board.

All of these highly advanced features and capabilities, complemented by an IEEE 1394 interface for high-speed image transfer, come together to form the SUPER COOLSCAN 9000 ED -- the new king of the desktop film scanning realm.
