Documentation for the Super Coolscan ED is quite extensive and, to the best of our recollection, a good bit more convenient than that of the LS Both scanners include a very complete manual on the CD, in Adobe Acrobat tm format, but the Super Coolscan 4000 ED also includes a roughly page printed version as well. The printed manual is complete enough and well enough written that we really found no need to venture into the electronic version.

Kudos to Nikon, we really appreciate not having to spend time printing out an electronic manual! Key Features The new Nikon Super Coolscan ED scanner is by any measure one of the most sophisticated products we've coolscan 4000 to date. We'll cover these in more detail below, but thought it worth calling attention to a few of the Super Coolscan ED's key features at the top of the review. Here are a few of the key points: dpi Resolution In all our prior scanner reviews, the highest resolution we'd encountered in a film scanner was on the order of dpi. Since the film grain was fairly evident at that resolution, our feeling was that there was little purpose in going to even higher resolutions, since it seemed all this would do coolscan 4000 further emphasize the film grain.

We have to say though, that the Super Coolscan ED disabused us of that notion. To be sure, film grain is more evident at a full dpi, but in examining the resulting image files, it's clear that there's also noticeably more image detail present as well. Combine this with the "Digital GEM" grain-management technology embodied in the Super Coolscan ED, and its dpi rating constitutes a genuine increase in usable resolution. The high resolution is further enhanced by the Super Coolscan ED's new optics, using Nikon's special extra-low dispersion ED optical glass, which reduces chromatic aberration and improves image sharpness.

We don't have a good objective test that would highlight the performance of scanner optics per se, but it was our impression that the scans produced by the Super Coolscan ED were distinctly sharper and crisper than those of the already-excellent LS that preceded it. The five images above are pixel crops taken from the four corners and center of a maximum-resolution scan of a Kodak Gold color negative. In these shots, it does appear that the grain pattern is a little less sharply-focused in the lower left and lower right corners of the negative. On the other hand, this is far from a scientific test, since those portions of the negative corresponded to brighter portions of the original subject, and would therefore be denser, producing a smaller grain pattern anyway.

Some comment has been made on the internet about corner to corner sharpness with the Super Coolscan ED. We observed a slight softness in the corners, but didn't feel it was extreme, or to the point that it posed a problem. On our resolution target, the edge definition of elements in the corners of the frame was really about as good coolscan 4000 those in the center. We felt that the corner softness was most noticeable in the less-defined grain pattern from the film in the corners. The images above were cropped from a dpi scan of Kodak ISO color negative film. The grain pattern from the center of the frame was clearly sharper, but the softness in the corners didn't seem to translate into noticeably reduced detail in our scans.

It's possible that the problem could be more acute with badly curved film, since there's no glass in the negative carrier to hold the film flat. We're not sure how coolscan 4000 a problem this may coolscan 4000 may not be: If you had a badly curved piece of film, it seems you could always cut the individual frame and mount it in a glass-fronted slide mount to hold it flat if that proved necessary Under optimal circumstances, it can completely remove scratches, dust, and fingerprints from a slide or negative, while leaving the underlying image untouched! This was so amazing, we had to try it ourselves, so we deliberately damaged a negative and smudged it with fingerprints and dirt.

Coolscan 4000 literally dropped it on a linoleum floor and walked on it! Even with this extreme level of damage though, the coolscan 4000 were pretty astonishing. Initially, Nikon and Applied Science Fiction were deliberately a little vague about how ICE works, but the technology is now well-known.

It works by shining an infrared light through the film's emulsion, using the resulting scan information to create a "defect channel" showing where the dust and scratches are located. The infrared light passes right through the layers of most color print or slide film, but is blocked by dust or scratches. Note that this technique doesn't work with Kodachrome or black-and-white film, as those emulsions are either entirely or largely opaque to infrared light. The result is just short of amazing.
