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 ;)

Regards,
JK

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! :D :devil:

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.. :embrass:

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... :cry:

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

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... :p

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! :thumbsup:
