    • I do not have Konica scanner. Just repair and return to customers. Scanning time and resolution I saw when I had it.
    • Thank you very much for the detailed reply. Do you know what colour bit depth the scanner is capable of, and what the dynamic range (DMAX) is?
    • DS-1000 is cheap and reliable film scanner made in Japan. Never had to replace light source. Whole scanner made of metal, so it is very heavy ( about 40 kg ) . When scanned 135F maximum resolution 4988 x 7428. For regular customers enough to scan 16 Base ( 2048 x 3072 ) . Can scan .tiff .bmp, or .jpg . If in short - resolution a little higher, if compare with Noritsu HS-1800. DS-1000 is firewire scanner. If to use with original computer ( running Windows 2000 ) then scanning very slow. Need change computer ( where W7 32 bit, or W10 32 bit ) . When used new computer scanning speed is faster. Scanning speed on original computer and new computer can see here : https://www.minilabhelp.com/index.php?/forums/topic/27445-r1-ds-1000-scanner-speed-really-quite-slow/  Automatic film  carrier is to scan 135 films. To scan 120 films and other you need universal film carriers and masks for exact film. It is enough 6 x 9 mask. Using it perfectly can scan other frames ( 6 x 4.5 , 6 x 6 and other ) . There are many other masks (to scan mounted slides, 135 films, 240 ( APS ) and other. Also there is 240 automatic film carrier, but it is useless. 240 ( APS ) very rare. Konica scanner DS-1000 is the oldest model. Newer are DS-1010, DS-2000, DS-2001 and FS-3000 . DS-2001 working on W10 32 bit can see here : https://www.minilabhelp.com/index.php?/forums/topic/25364-dp-1000-workstation-software-on-different-pc/ I have all Konica software. It is for Windows 2000, but I know how to run it on Windows 10 x86, or W7 x86 . To run software need USB dongles. If it lost I have them. If have empty dongle I can program them online.      
    • Hello all, I'm a home photographer in the market for a more professional scanner, and have come across an advert for a DS-1000 scanner standalone. I haven't been able to find much information online about its specs and capabilities. My intended use is to scan 35mm and 120 B&W and colour negatives, and perhaps the occasional transparency. This is with the intention of editing on PC and having selects prints made, mostly up to 12", maybe up to 20". There are a couple of drum scanners available locally for similar money and I'm trying to decide between the two. I used to work in a lab, so have experience with both minilab equipment and drum scanners.   Any information on the DS-1000 and how it compares to a drum scan for ease/speed of use and resolution, bit depth, and dynamic range would be much appreciated.   Many thanks
    • On QSS30xx used standard SD RAM. Can get from very old disassembled computer ( made about 2000 year ) . In most of them used this SD RAM. If your QSS30xx minilab computer is original and there 2 RAM modules you can temporary take one RAM and use it on QSS30xx mage processing pcb. You easy can find these RAM modules at someone, who recycle computers, or repair them. RAM modules also can buy online ( Ebay, Aliexpress and similar shops ) .
