This device is a used one, which we have carefully cleaned and prepared.
With the roll film adaptor SA-30 you can upgrade the Nikon Super Coolscan 4000 or 5000 so that you can scan whole film rolls at once. Film rolls (positive or negative) with up to 40 frames can be inserted into the roll film adaptor SA-30.
The roll film adaptor consists of two parts: a normal feeder is attached to the front side of the scanner (in principle it's the same as the serial strip film adaptor). A big film drum is mounted on the back side of the scanner, on which the film automatically rolls up during the scan process.
With the roll film adaptor scanning whole film rolls works fully automatic, i.e. after adjusting the scan settings the Super Coolscan 4000/5000 scans the whole film (or a selection) in batch mode without interrupton.
As an alternative we recommend the Nikon SA-21-30
, which can also process complete film rolls.

During the period of use more and more dust and dirt sets on the contact surface and the corners of a film holder. Consequently dust gets on the film material and into the scanner. Hence the film holder should be cleaned again and again. The easiest way is simply brushing the film holder with an anti static brush, which not only removes the dust but also removes electric charges. Discharging is important because electric charge adducts dust as is generally known. Kinetronics anti static brushes are available in different sizes.
When working with film strips it can often happen that you accidentally touch the emulsion side of the film. The damage often is irreparable. You can avoid damages to the film material and comfortably insert film strips into the scanner or film holder by wearing fine cotton gloves.
Anti-dust spray is used to clean film material - no matter if it's mounted slides or film strips - by removing dust and fluffs with a flimsy current of air without touching the film material at all. There is no better, more comfortable and more efficient way to clean your film material.
For working with single negatives or positives we highly recommend using tweezers, because otherwise you run the risk of touching and damaging the film.
