I have a Nikon CoolScan 8000 scanner for sale. Here's a few photos:
This is the scanner just before the NOW DISCONTINUED 9000 model. It has very similar specs, but basically it will scan at 4000 spi (samples per inch) over a 6x9 negative, and anything smaller.
Many people consider it the nearest scanner quality to a drum scan that you could get out of a desktop device (in general it is better than all but the highest end Imacon scanners).
It's an ideal scanner for 35mm and 120 formats, but won't scan any larger than 6x9 so it's no good for 6x12 or 6x17 without stitching.
Included is the 35mm strip carrier, 35mm slide (mounted) carrier, 120 strip carrier, and 120 GLASS carrier (FH-869G). The glass holder was an expensive extra that runs $300 these days, and is one of the primary reasons this scanner is capable of such great scans!
I don't have the box or manual, but the software and manual are available for download from Nikon, and I have a CD that has them on it. Note that this scanner will not work with the Nikon Scan software in OS 10.6 because Nikon did not update the drivers. It WILL, however, work with Viewscan, so not all is lost if you are a current OS Mac person.
Since the discontinuation of the Nikon scanners, the prices have jumped considerably, because when these excellent scanners are gone, they're gone for good, and I don't expect any company will ever make a scanner this good at these prices.
This scanner has had very little use (I actually had and used a drum scanner for most scanning), and there is only a minor mark or two on the front of the cabinet that would indicate any use.
I'm looking for $1500 INCLUDING PP AND SHIPPING in the US.
It is ready to ship, and I will have it double boxed to ensure it will arrive in great shape. Everything's ready to go. I will only ship this in the US, maybe Canada. No other countries (too big, and too costly, unpredictable)
Please PM or email if interested.
