Re: Nikon Coolscan Thoughts

I've got the V. It's great. ICE works on C41 B&W films btw.

That's probably the best way to do it - even the good condition working ones are pretty cheap, and then you will have a spare camera (so long as you dont want to use them both at once..)

Dont even think about the UWL with scratches - they will show up clearly on anything you shoot... I bought one cheap (30 bucks I think) because I thought it was worth a try - money wasted :cry:

As I was about to leave, they guy handed me a plastic carrier bag full of loose film, which "came with the projector". I took a look at it later and spent a ...
