This device is a used one, which we have carefully cleaned and prepared. It was in use within our company for approx. 4 months. Externally it looks almost like a new device.
With the slide feeder SF-210 you can make the Nikon Super Coolscan 4000 ED or Super Coolscan 5000 ED a batch scanner. In order to attach the feeder to the scanner it must be put in horizontal position.
The feeder has two about 78mm wide slots, one for the slides to be scanned and one for the already scanned slides. With 1,5mm thick mounts about 50 slides can be scanned at once. Naturally thicker or thinner slides can be inserted, too.
With the slide feeder SF-210 in combination with the Nikon Super Coolscan 4000 ED / 5000 ED you can digitise great quantities of mounted 35mm slides in short times and high quality.
Note: although you can attach the feeder SF-210 to a Nikon LS-40 or Coolscan V it is not detected by the scanner. You can use the SF-210 exclusively with the Super Coolscan 4000/5000.

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.
