    Dear All,

    I am on the verge of buying the Konica Minolta DiMAGE Scan Elite 5400 II
    film scanner.

    The objective is to digitise 4 years worth of 35mm negatives and to
    update my digital photograph archive (which was initially built up using
    a Nikon Coolscan III - now unusable as a result of my move to MAC / OSX).

    Any final comments / warnings / encouragements much appreciated.



    PS : I suspect I know the answer to this one - but has anyone ever seen
    photograph / image management software that can provide a map /
    geographical interface to the photos ?

    Which Mac did you purchase that you cannot add SCSI to?

    Nikon only supports the Coolscan III up to OS 9.2.x. It is not supported
    for OS X.
