Product Specifications

The Coolscan III incorporates technology that delivers the high image quality and functionality that have become the standard for Nikon scanning products. The Coolscan III boasts high scanning speed and multi-format flexibility. High-resolution scanning at 2,700 dpi can be performed in only 20 seconds (without the transfer of data to a computer). Furthermore, the small size (footprint) and lightweight of the Coolscan III allow users to situate the scanner in the most convenient location, and to easily relocate it when necessary.
