Some people wanted to see the results of the Coolscan 4000 ED, I just sent in a single preview - I'm still working on the rest of the batch. Here's the first picture of mine here scanned on the it. I Love it!
Taken on Provia 100F through a Canon 100-400mm L IS lens, almost at full extension.
Before people get upset about VIP Lists etc., since this plane is quite unusual, and will only last a few weeks, I asked Johan to give it express handling, as he explains how to do on the upload page, and he was kind enough to do so for this one pic.

I used Nikonscan 3.0, which now supports higher bit depths and multiple passes. I bought Vuescan before but don't see myself using it with this scanner any more.
I think I did 2 passes on a whole batch of 40 or so slides, which is the capacity of the automatic feeder. It scanned them overnight in about 4 hours.
As far as equipment is concerned, yes I have some nice stuff. I also got an EOS 1v recently. But it doesn't help as much as you think. I still do not know how to take certain kinds of pictures very well, and skill is something you cannot buy. Put it this way - my next challenge is to get a few pictures into the Editors' Choice section. So far I have none, even though I have well over 1000 pics here. The reason for my not being in that section is simple - my pictures my be technically good, but boring.
I now have the equipment, but that was the easy part. The rest is up to me.

Charles - though the Nikon software is an improvement over previous incarnations, I still find Vuescan worthwhile and use it most of the time - make sure you download the lastest version though, as there were a few issues with versions of Vuescan when support was first provided for the 4000ED.
