If you've ever scanned two images from the same strip, this feature might
make a batch scanner out of you. With Nikonscan you click on your image
thumbnail set it's rotation, crop, and image adjustments, then click on the
next image and do the same. When you've got all the parameters set you
click scan and walk away or work on something else. When you come back all
your images are scanned and you haven't had to sit and wait for the scanner.
Sure beats scanner babysitting!
I'm doing 4000dpi scans, usually with ice, on the LS-4000 with the SA-30
35mm roll adapter, so I may have 10-20 images per roll that I want to
capture, each with slightly different settings. Setting up these scans can
take20-30 minutes. Scanning that many at 4000dpi with ice takes about 30-60
minutes. But even with just 4-6 images on a filmstrip this feature would be
a real workflow benefit.

The 35mm roll film adapter on the LS-4000 gives you the same functinality.
Believe me it IS wonderful!
