I'm using an LS-4000 with the roll film adapter. It's awesome.
The best part is the way NikonScan3.1 handles batch scanning.
It gives thumbnail previews of the whole roll.
You can then rotate, crop and adjust each frame individually.
You CAN EVEN individually manual focus each frame prior to batch scanning.
Then you walk away and come back to find the work finished.
A real timesaver.
