I recently started scanning some of my 35 mm negative film from ~1987. I found the Nikon Coolscan V ED to be a nice tool when used in combination with the digital ice that comes with the unit. I was wondering what the experience of others may have been with scanning 35 mm film negatives. I have posted a comparative example below plus an additional image. More images are in an album under my profile.

I use a Nikon Super Cool Scan to scan my film, and it works great. The Digital ICE works great, but not for black & white film (which it's not designed for). I try to keep the negs as clean as possible, but still, a speck or two (or three or four) always get through.

And I saw the images with ICE on and off... big difference!

Thank you for taking the time to respond. I appreciate the input. I also noted the problems with scanning in B&W negatives, but I had very few B&W negatives. I was unable to make adjustments to improve the scan quality much on B&W, but the quality of the color negative and positive film scans was good enough for me to really enjoy the product.
