              The manufacturer has not issued drivers for MacOS 10.9 The last archive was issued on March 2014 contains package dated April 2013. CyberView does not function and hangs system.
              On Windows Vista Cyberview works without any problem.

                Comments about Pacific Image PF120 Pro Multi-Format Film Scanner:

                This is about as good as it gets these days for a medium format film scanner for home use. Since Nikon discontinued the CoolScan 9000, there has been a big hole in the market for a decent medium format film scanner. This one does a decent job of filling that void. In addition to the privided software, VueScan will work with this scanner. SilverFast appears to have a version also, but I haven't tried it.

                Set up and installation was without heartburn. First scans came out great. The software has far less options than my previous scanner (Plustek OpticFilm 8200i)had a lot more options but I have not missed any of them. Nice, clean and properly exposed scans every time.

                It IS extremely slow. Deal with it. It's a great scanner for medium format and 35mm film.

                Comments about Pacific Image PF120 Pro Multi-Format Film Scanner:

                Operation is plagued by error messages not explained in the minimalist user manual (which has no troubleshooting section). Software is awful and must be reset each time you open it--which you'll do a lot when trying to get the scanner to operate. Curve & level adjustments are barely useable. The software seems to have been designed by someone who has no concept of workflow or why someone would want to scan 120 film. With great effort you can get a scan that can be adjusted in camera raw & photoshop. But coming to this after my lovely Nikon 9000 finally died is a great frustration--both in operation and results.

                      This scanner produces highly inconsistent results. The software is very limited and non-intuitive. Overall, do not recommend this product.

                            This is fine if you want to copy 5 slides.
                            Anymore than that, use an Epson flatbed scanner for 1/10 the price.
