ADF is an abbreviation for “Automatic Document Feeder“. The Nikon LS 5000ED film scanner is able to feed in small and medium format slides or filmstrips automatically. This means, the user does not have to transport the filmholder from image to image by hand, but controls the feeder with SilverFast 8. This manual describes how to use the SilverFast 8 ADF functionality.
