Lens elements with Nikon ED glass (Extra low Dispersion) offer superior performance on focus division, contrast and a real-life colour reproduction. There is no talk of maintenance, start-up time or film damage as a consequence of heat. And to enable a consistent accurate colour reproduction on monitors and on prints the SUPER COOLSCAN 9000 ED offers the Nikon Colour Management System (Nikon CMS). Colour information can me manipulated in many RGB colour rooms, to achieve an unequalled precision. These technologies form the base of a first class optical system that produces top quality images.

Digital ICE 4 Advanced, the new and improved image restore function consists of the components ICE (image correction and improvement), Digital ROC (Reconstruction of Colours), Digital GEM (Granular elimination management) and the brand new DEE tm (Dynamic Enhanced Enlightenment). The exclusive Digital ICE professional technique is also compatible with Kodachrome films. The Scan Image Enhancer corrects brightness and colour just pressing the button!

All these highly advanced functions and possibilities completed with a IEEE 1394 interface for a high speed image transfer, are gathered together in this SUPER COOLSCAN 9000 ED – the new leader in the world of desktop film scanners.
