      Comments about Nikon FH-869GR 120/220 Rotating Film Holder with Glass:

      the Coolscan 9000 is out of production, but remains one of the best dedicated film scanners in the modest price range. You really need the Anti-Newton Glass holder to pull maximum sharpness out of your medium format scans. This one is best for one image at a time use. It comes with mattes for common formats to prevent over-exposed bleed at the edges of the frame. It also rotates to keep the film parallel. The non-rotating version is better to scan mulitlple images, but this one is great if you take a little time with each frame.

      Comments about Nikon FH-869GR 120/220 Rotating Film Holder with Glass:

      Let's be brief.

      This holder let you scan 645, 66, 67, 69, xpan film ONE FRAME AT EACH SETUP. You have to eject every time you move to the next frame. It's not efficient for batch medium format scanning.

      The masks let your scanner recognize the format and you do not really need to take care of cropping.

      You do not need to cut film strips to scan - xpan allows you 3 frame strip, 66 allow 3, 645 allows 4, 67 and 69 allows 2.

      It works with my 8000ED - so as 9000ED as other review said.

      I compared this and the 869-G, I decided on this since I use it mainly for xpan.

          Comments about Nikon FH-869GR 120/220 Rotating Film Holder with Glass:

          In the beginning i thought that it was a little expensive but when i show the reviews of the constructor i decide to purchased it.
          Easy to use, this slide holder is indispensable to see the real faculty of the Nikon 9000 ED.
          I used it on several slides and i am very thanking to buy it.

            Easy to use, this slide holder is indispensable to get the full value of the Nikon 9000 ED scanner. I used it on several hundreds slides and it worked perfectly. Only problem: it is rather expensive and should be included, in my opinion, with the scanner
