    I missed by 4 positions!

    Now looking at the Canoscan 5000f liow. I don't have deep pockets so no choice. To think that the next best choice cost $200 more.

    Who don't like their new toy PM me! We can talk

    Managed to get one for my colleague as i dont have scsi card/cable.. so will pass my slides/neg for him to scan instead!

    I was in Q no. 28 - started queuing frm 1.30pm as I saw quite a long queue forming already, so no choice have to start to queue early..

    I think there was abt 40 units for sale only instead of 50, can anyone confirm ?

    Aiyah......
    I should have gone...
    I was thinking whether it's worth it for me to get it or not...
    Anyway, I was free the whole day...

    well, this may be the good excuse to save some cash and go for a DSLR....

    Charvy,

    I think I was behind you, I think I'm #29.


    FYI I bought the
    - Adaptec 2906 PCI SCSI Card @ $95
    - WireTek 1.8m SCSI II cable DB50M/DB25M @ $30
    at M Technic Resources Sim Lim Square (SLS) #06-41


    there's another shop I think by the name of 'Cymax' at 5th Sty (or 4th sty) selling the Adaptec 2940UW OEM version @ $168
    I think it does not include the external cable.


    Not sure whether will it work well on my PC.
    Hope to install & test the Nikon CoolScan III (LS-30) this Sunday.

    Missed the opportunity...

    Those who wants to sell off their CSIII can sell me for some profit. Might be interested.

    Hey I was #31!

    For those who are using XP and Adaptec 2940 series card, remember to download this ASPI update . Else your Coolscan III cant be detected by NikonScan program.

    For those who are interested to download NikonScan 3.1.2 (latest FULL version), you can download it at this site . Enjoy!

    hahaha... i was hardup to get the scanner too. i was #30.
    Jason, it was nice chatting with you for 1.5hrs... chat until "cui ta".
    Thanks for the links also.

    hmmm... so many from clupsnap were there arh... no wonder see a lot of familiar faces leh... sorry Tony, for not being able to identify you during the queue.... .

    now need to find a SCSI card and cable... going to SLS this afternoon to get chop liao

    can anyone recommend a relatively cheap solution to go with WIN XP Pro?
