Nikon LA-2000 Photo, Slide & Film Scanner
Posted in Pentax Film SLR Cameras
There are a number of USB scanners that you might find easier to use: Nikon Coolscan LS-5000 (expensive) Nikon Coolscan LS-IV (LS-40) (much more reasonable) Nikon Coolscan LS-V (LS-50) (in the middle) These work with Hamrick VueScan software, but you'll need to buy this otherwise the scans have a watermark on the images. There are ways of getting these scanners to work on new versions of Windows - and instructions can be found on-line, but it isn't particularly straightforward. I'd also see if you can get it with Nikon's software, as often this goes missing.

Finally! Pentax K-1 is official... Pre-order and Open Day information

We posted a quick video of the tilting screen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BmluFxZDzC8 The screen and cable is all weather-sealed and designed to work outdoors as well. The rubber cover on the ribbon cable looks to be quite sturdy.

Pentax also announced the EI-3000, but this never made it to market (also from Pentax User Magazine Summer 2001)
