Hello guys, I am looking into the HP coolscan 4000. Would you recommend this slide scanner for sharp images?

If you are talking about the NIKON Coolscan 4000, that's what I have. It's an excellent scanner. Very sharp.

Oh duh, just a typo. I am talking about the Nikon Coolscan 4000. Thanks Charles. What type of camera and lenses do you use? You have great shots by the way!

Thanks. Last year I went totally  Nuts and upgraded my kit. All Canon, EOS 1V body, 70-200mm and 100-400mm L lenses. For aircraft I always use Provia 100F film.

One of the ncest features of the 4000 is the auto slide feeder attachement. Put 50 slides in, and go away for a couple of hours and they are done.

Thanks for the offer - I've never been to Alaska. But a spotter I know brought back some fantastic pictures from there, so I'll find a way up there one day, I'm sure.

Cheers,

Charles

I use Corel Photopaint 10. I've been using the CorelDraw series since version 3.0, so I know it pretty well. I thried to get the hang of Adobe Photoshop, but couldn't really get it into my head - something about teaching an old dog new tricks, I guess.  Smile

By the way, did you get the 50-slide automatic feeder? I love that thing.

No that was not included in the package, but I will be sure to purchase that.

So what photo editing program would you recommend if I have not used any of them yet? I need something that is good, and easy to use.

The Nikonscan 3.1 software (make sure you get the latest patches off of the net) is excellent. Run it as a standalone, rather than a plug-in through another program like Photoshop. I turn on ICE to "Normal", which cleans up the odd bit of dirt or hair, and otherwise don't do anything to it in that program, except save it at excellent quality, normally at about 3000 pixels wide.

For other programs, I use ThumbsPlus and Corel Photopaint 10. ThumbsPlus is used for cropping and color saturation modifications, and Corel is used for resizing, color balance and sharpening.
