If you have found this page you are probably looking for the filmscanner reviews and information that I used to maintain at www.halftone.co.uk. I regret this has now all been removed. It was hopelessly out of date and only referred to obsolete scanners. I became unable to continue reviews several years ago due to the large amount of work involved. It was taking several days every time a new scanner appeared, and simply became too much. I do not intend reinstating the old pages. You should however be able to find much of the old content using the Wayback machine web archive.
Alternatively, the filmscanners email list is still in operation. If you have a specific query, there are plenty of knowledgeable people there who may help.
- There is a partial web archive of list messages. You will probably find that your question has already been answered there.
- To subscribe to the list send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with 'subscribe filmscanners' as the message subject.
- If you prefer a daily digest - hardly worth bothering as messages are few and far between nowadays - send an email to email@example.com with 'subscribe filmscanners_digest' as the message subject.
A brief FAQ
Where can I get a Windows XP compatible version of Nikon driver software for my Nikon LS1000?
You can't. Nikon no longer supports the LS1000 with current versions of Nikonscan. However, it is perfectly possible to continue to use the scanner under XP if you use Vuescan instead, shareware from Ed Hanrick's site. Vuescan works better with the LS1000 than Nikonscan ever did anyhow. Please read Ed's notes on the site about the requirement to install an ASPI layer, though generally XP is pretty good at installing SCSI support automatically.
