Professioanally tested scanner

 

This is a very good scanner for the money. I am a photojournalist at a newspaper and these are the scanners we use most often. For super high quality scans we use a leaf and drum scanners which both have five digit price tags.

It's a workhorse, professional grade scanner

Software is cumbersome. It's not the fastest scanner out there.

Hocus Pocus. Turn your LS-30 into an LS-2000, almost

 

With the aid of Ed Hamrick's third party software, VueScan, www.hamrick.com, the LS-30 now has the functionality of the LS-2000, well almost. How? Well after Nikon introduced the LS-2000 they decided to market the LS-30 as a scaled-back consumer...
