Just arrived – new negative and slide scanner


I just received my new Nikon 9000 ED negative and slide scanner. It can scan 35mm negative, slide and medium format film. My old scanner could only do a reasonable copy of negatives and slides but wasn’t up to doing quality scans.

Having spent a lot of time reading reviews and information on scanners the Nikon 9000 stood out as a great scanner for doing most formats and at a reasonable budget. While film is in decline compared to digital there are photographers whom still shoot with film and there is 150 years worth of film still requiring copying/archiving. Now I won’t be needing to turn away customers with enquiries about film scanning. Preliminary scans show excellent reproduction. I’ll be putting it through its’ paces before adding negative and slide scanning services onto my website.


Anyone with any questions regarding scanning options and costs, feel free to ask them here or please go to my main website for further contact details – Neal.

Updated: The scanner does great output but is not a bulk scanning device, each scan requiring attention to detail and manual input.

Pricing varies from $1.00 (2000dpi) to $2/slide (4000dpi, 19 Megapixel Equivalent) depending on detail of each scan. However, if you’re looking for nice images the Nikon is perfect for the job.

  2. Hi there – I was looking to get some slides converted to digital images. are you still doing this and how much would it cost? I have approx 100 slides to convert. also what resolution can you convert them to?



  3. I’ve sent an email regarding your enquiry. Also, the scanner can do up to 4000dpi, so large prints are easily achievable – it just depends on how good the original image was!

  4. Hi there, i’d love to know your price for scanning approx 300 slides. Thanks heaps.

  5. Hi Dave

    Thanks for the question. I’ve sent you an email in reply. For everyone else – It’s actually hard coming up with a reasonable price – taking into account the volume of slides, resolution and time taken to scan the images. Just thinking how to do the web page(s) and come up with something economical but producing excellent quality.


  6. Hi Robert

    Thanks for the enquiry, I’ve emailed you a reply on what you can do


  7. Hi there Neal,

  8. Hi Mark

    Thanks for the enquiry. I have sent you an email in response. To everyone: I have just purchased a slide/negative glass holder to scan 120 images. I found the holder that came with the scanner was not good enough. These holders are really rare, I bought the last one in NZ and around the world they are really rare. All in the quest for getting a good image!

  33. Hello Neal,
    my father’s 60th birthday party is this weekend. I have just remembered I have a lot of amazing slides in a box in the cupboard that would be great to include in the digital slideshow my brother is organising.
    Do you know anywhere in Hastings or Napier that could help me with this immediately? I don’t know where to start.
    Cheers, Kristy.

  34. Hi Neal,

    I have a large amount of negatives that I would like to have scanned. Can you give me a price for having 100/500/1000 negatives scanned to DVD? Does the price vary with resolution?


  35. Hi Tony

    A reply has been sent with pricing. Cost does vary with resolution as extra time is taken to scan each image. It is quite a labour intensive process, but the results are excellent.


  36. Hi. I have 150-200 slides, could you give me a price for scanning onto disc please. Thank-you
