Question about Nikon LS5000 Film Scanner

Open Question

Artefact while scanning with LS5000 & SA21

When scanning negative strips using my new LS5000 & SA21, I get unacceptable scans of the last negative of every strip I scan.
There seems to be a problem with the way the scanner handles the end of the strip. I scanned three times the same picture, first with an inch of blank film to the right of the negative. The scan of this image seems perfect. Once I cut the extra inch of film, leaving about 1/12 of an inch, I get a scan with a brown artefact in the sky portion of the picture. I can also see artefacts outside of the scanner's 'field of view'.
Im am running NikonScan 4.0.2 on Windows XP.
Is this a hardware or software problem ? How can I resolve it ?
Thank you,
B. Dupont

SOURCE: Edge Of Scan Overexposed

If the slides are ok , and not overexposed themself, brown discoloration on the side means a problem with the scanner lamp.

SOURCE: Huge difference in film scanning quality

For ARCHIVAL quality scans, there is no comparison. The Nikon wins hands-down. For making small prints and web sharing, either will work fine.

This is so specialised, you need to go to the manufacturer. In 5 years of answering questions on Fixya, this is the first time I have seen a spectrometer. Use Technical Support or Contact.

Do you want a recomendation?do you want new or used? Typically all in one users don't scan slides or film, but flat prints, so they don't have the lighted back lid needed to scan film.I know that the Epson Stylus PHOTO RX-620 & 700 had a holder for 4 slides or 1 strip of film about 8 inches long

Will not recognize 5th image on negative strip because 4 and 5 overlap (slight double exposure). How do I scan 5th image?


I inserted my negative holder in backwards on my Nikon 5000 35 mm scanner. Then I could get the last (5th) slide scanned. But I can not get the scanner to work on my new IMac because of no working driver. Silver Fast has no drivers for the Nikon 5000

Scanning 110 negative film


I just finished scanning many 110 film strips. You need to lay the strip along the inside edge of slot A and scan in normal preview mode. On the preview strip, put a marquee around each individual photo and scan each one separately. Worked fine for me.

Lines through negative scans


Clean the glass surface with Iso propyl alcohol (Industrial grade is enough). Dont use any solvent. Just for immediate usage, you can use your aftershave and clean. Clen with a soft cloth.
