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.

Did you use VueScan software? I prefer it to the Nikon software. Not that I can see anything wrong with this particular scan...

I think it looks great!

Does the Coolscan 4000ED have a multi scan feature?
If so, did you apply that to this particular photo you took?

its unbelievable that you had the amounts to spend on such a equipment.
It must of costed many many months or years worth of savings..

So what happened to your 3000 Coolscan series??

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.

Neat feature there Charles, scanning while sleeping!
The blue in the sky doesn't really look like Provia though ?
I look forward to seeing some more of your scans with the 4000.

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.
