Once you get your own preferences figured out output quality, corrections, Digital ICE you can can efficiently work your way through several boxes of slides in an afternoon. This flatbed also does film up to about 58mm wide. For the price I don’t think you can beat the Pacific Image Primefilm range of scanners as long as you don’t need to scan anything larger than 35mm. Near mint condition, barely used with hard to see scratches- Sold exactly as pictured with power and USB cables. The mobile world might finally get exciting again in However, anybody taking pictures today can no longer use Kodachrome so it does not matter.

This item doesn’t belong on this page. Dimae respectful, keep it civil and stay on topic. The file is just four times the size on disk. Don’t show this again. Supposedly if you use the SCSI interface it goes much faster, but supporting that is more difficult now with modern operating systems. The Scanner, a Nikon So if you don’t have the option of using FIrewire, you’re going to get fairly slow scan performance on the Elite II compared to the later models.


Should I ever make it back to Montana, I will redo this paragraph with numbers off the actual test slide. To me, it’s just that good.

The Nikon was rated by the manufacture to scan at PPI. Photo, Slide and Film Scanners.

It was bought in about and was a current offering at that time. Visit manufacturer site for details.

Nikon rates the similarly priced Coolscan V at just 4. Unfortunately, the software is really disappointing. This item may be a floor model or store return elte has been used. No sharpening applied here.

They also have very shallow 540 of field which makes it difficult to get an entire image sharp in one scan if the slide being scanned is not flat. I did scan all my old films with high resolution, it take me a week to finish my project. I’ll probably switch to Plustek when these eventually fail, instead of going the used route, though. On my Flicker space I often describe the scanner that scanned the photo.

Is it a big difference between Minolta Dimage Elite II and Elite 5400 scanners?

I recommend buying one now while supplies last. It tends to blur images rather than remove grain. Thank you in advance! I’ve used both a Plustek and Primefilm scanners. That being said, I scan much of my work at ppi rather than the full because the shots simply don’t warrant the full diamge of theso the lower resolution of the Scan Elite II may be just fine.


Another scanner to consider is the Canon FSUS if you can get one with all the accessories since they’re relatively inexpensive. The dpi optical resolution in this Dimage scan elite gives you professional quality scanning. The item may have some signs of cosmetic wear, but is fully operational and functions as intended.

I usually test my scanners with an Edmonds Scientific glass plate with the USAF resolution chart metal deposited on it. The scanner is an Epson V See details for description of any imperfections. And yeah, I also forgot to mention one very important for me downside of fs scaner – his turtle speed The ‘s autofocus isn’t extremely precise on the initial scan, but it gets points for the manual control dial.
