It's the same use - except that my old slides are not in good shape - 
for which I recently got Polaroid's Sprint Scan 4000. So far - not 
very far - so good. I preferred the 4000 to the Nikon partly because 
I already have an Epson XL836 flatbed scanner on which I use 
Silverfast 5. And I was concerned not to add software to my life 
unnecessarily. I've also found it helpful that Polaroid's David 
Hemingway is on this list and other lists. And I got the impression 
when Nikon's new scanner was the 2000 that they were not responsive 
to the problems users had with their film or slide (I forget which) 
carrier.
