[filmscanners] Re: Nikon Supercoolscan 5000 ED



I will leave this for those using this model to respond.  There were
reports with older models about banding, and Nikon's response at that
time was to go to the super fine mode which used one CCD line only, at
the cost of speed.


Some people claimed the banding was rare or never occurred, others
stated it only showed up in certain types of slides or subject matter,
some returned the machine due to the banding unhappy with the result.
