FS: Nikon Super Coolscan 9000 ED scanner. Purchased new by me just last November; there are still two months left on the warranty. Itís in mint condition cosmetically and operationally. Includes all of the original items in the box, and in addition Iím including the all-important 120/220 film holder from Nikon with anti-newton glass and masking sheets for 6x4.5, 6x6, 6x7, 6x8, and 6x9 film along with material for making your own masking sheets (totally eliminates Newton rings while keep the film perfectly flat).

The scans are superb and its operation is flawless. Since I purchased the scanner, it has sat in one location in a smoke-free home, never moved, and used lightly by a non-professional. I use primarily digital cameras, but I used the scanner to scan some previous 35mm and 6x7 as well as some new 6x4.5 and 6x6, less than 450 scans total. I ran the scanner with a Mac with OS 5.2.8. Iíve sold the last of my film cameras (yes, I do miss them: Pentax 645NII and Hasselblad 501cm with some wonderful lenses), and having a scanner without a film camera isnít very useful (!). Included in the sale are:

  • The Nikon Super Coolscan 9000 ED scanner
  • Original packing box
  • Original shipping box (i.e., itís double boxed)
  • Nikon Scan software CD
  • Userís Manual and set-up guide
  • FH-835S 35mm film strip holder (never used)
  • FH-835M mounted 35mm film holder
  • FH-869S 120/220 film holder (never used)
  • FH-869G 120/220 film holder with anti-newton glass and masking sheets
  • Power cord and firewire cable
  • IEEE 1394 PCI Board (no idea what this is for; never used)

The FH-869G glass holder has some light marks on the glass that can be seen when held at a certain angle to the light (Iíve used this holder for several years with my former Coolscan 8000). They have no effect whatsoever on the scans. Shown are two recent scans taken with this holder. The Joshua Tree photo (6x6 with Hasselblad) came in at 417 MB. The scan of the Sweetgrass Hills sunrise (Montana) is the very last scan I made with this scanner (just yesterday, in fact); it scanned at 529 MB (6x7 film); one version is shown straight from the scanner with no pre- or post-adjustments at all; the other only had some noise reduction applied (Nikís Dfine).

Asking $3300 + actual shipping (insured, and your choice of USPS or UPS). Paypal gift is preferred; add 3% for regular paypal. Cashierís checks are also accepted, but they must clear prior to shipping.

Iíve bought and sold extensively for 20+ years on photo.net, fredmiranda.com (SteveP), apug.org (stp), e**y (stp-montana), and others. Never had a problem on either end buying or selling, and I want to keep it that way.
