Re: filmscanners: Nikon LS40ED - first impressions
well first of all if you want they have a bug fix version of Nikon Scan
Version 3.1 on their website.. I think the address is www.nikon-imaging.com
I got my Nikon Coolscan LS-IV yesterday but have not installed it yet since
I have a small problem with my video card or something...
