We are here to put the claims to rest! While some believe that scanning your slides and negatives on a Nikon 9000 is better than to have your slides scanned on a Nikon 5000, the quality is the same.
Both the Nikon 5000 and the Nikon 9000 are professional film scanners, and were created with different intentions. While the Nikon 5000 was built to scan film that is in a 2"x2" mount, such as a 35mm slide, 126 format slide, or 110 format slide, the Nikon 9000 was built to scan film that was sized LARGER than 2"x2". The Nikon 9000 was also meant to accommodate 120/220 format film, specialty film, and 127 format slides.
Scanning Kodachrome Film
Our professional staff is trained to scan your film at a high quality level. Each scanner is individually set up with the correct settings to ensure that no digital ice distortion occurs. Some claim that the Digital ICE technology on the Nikon 5000 will produce warped effects, but it's simply not true. Digital ICE is a feature that betters each and every image as it removes dust, fingerprints, and scratches from film.
