I wrote several bug reports during the beta proces but they went unanswered by
Nikon. They have been promising a revision "any day now" for over a month.

Very unimpressive. I've taken to using vuescan which I can tolerate although the
user-interface is not very good (being written for portability) and there are
some very quirky design decisions.

None-the-less it does work and I've been productive with it. I wish there were
scan selections for Tri-X or that he would tell us how to make them.
