Works well ..........

Bought this product to copy all my old 35mm slides. It works very well but is somewhat hard to adjust to get the proper aspect ratio of picture to the cardboard frame. Once you do however, it is very fast and I can copy slides MUCH faster than any film or flat bed scanner. You will, depending on the lens used, have to find some kind of extension tube/s to use with it. I'm using a 90mm macro lens and found I needed about 86mm of extension tube length between the front of the lens and the ES-1 ...

Bought this product to copy all my old 35mm slides. It works very well but is somewhat hard to adjust to get the proper aspect ratio of picture to the cardboard frame. Once you do however, it is very fast and I can copy slides MUCH faster than any film or flat bed scanner. You will, depending on the lens used, have to find some kind of extension tube/s to use with it. I'm using a 90mm macro lens and found I needed about 86mm of extension tube length between the front of the lens and the ES-1 to obtain focus - ( with a 1.5 crop factor camera ) These are availible on [...]. I am using a 55-52mm adapter ring, the extension tubes and the ES-1. The quality of the pictures will of course depend on the slides you're copying but my results have been generally pretty good. I've copied around four thousand now in about two weeks using the ES-1 and to have done this with a film or flat bed scanner would have taken years for me. The ES-1 solves the problem of how to hold the slide steady while taking the photograph. I would highy recommend it.

Wouldn't Work For Me

A number of adorama members suggested ways to get this to work on my Canon 5DIII with 100mm macro lens, but I could never get the slide in focus. Had to return it. Wish Canon would make one!

This works perfectly!

By

from Lewisville, TX, USA

I purchased this adapter to copy slides and negatives using a Nikon D800E. I use a Micro Nikkor 60 mm f 2.8 lens and a Nikon BR-5 mount adapter ring. It works perfectly. Some people complain that the copy adapter rotates, I use a thick rubber band to hold it in place. Plus the rubber band allows some easy adjustment if needed. My next step is to design and build a 35mm film adapter I can slide in place and copy film with.

Fantastic for recover old photos

By

from Cali, Colombia  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I have thousands of 35 mm slides with all family photos, this adapter is wonderful for digitalize old slides. I use a Nikon D90 with a Micro Nikkor. With a 55 mm Micro-Nikkor you must to use a 21 mm tube, but i have a 85 mm Micro-Nikkor. I builded an extension tube (130 mm) necesary to adapt the Slide Copy adapter using a 2 inch (2") PVC high pressure water tube that have an internal diameter of 52 milimeters. I disassembled two old 52 mm filters for use inside the tube to screw to lens, in similar way of the standard 21 mm tube. Now I'm trying to digitize photo negatives using special inversion filters existing in digital photo software like Aperture or Photoshop. Now all the old photographs of memories return.

Easy to use,good value

By

from Goleta, California  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I am using this with a 60mm f/2.8 Micro Nikkor lens and a step down adapter on my Nikon D800. Using a small lightbox for a lightbox, the results have been very good. This is by far simpler than using a film scanner and the results have been excellent.

Great Results!!!

By

from philadelphia  -  Semi-Professional

I still shoot film, along with digital. This unit has proven the best means of digitalizing my slides yet. It is fast, and once digitalized in camera, I am able to correct any problems,with perspective, distortion or composition, without loosing the pixels, as often results with most digital software. The finished jpegs are each over 10mp, when shot with a D800. The resolution and contrast? simply outstanding. The best thing to happen for putting slide film photography back into the mainstream!

Very convenient for copying old slides.

By

from Taiwan  -  Professional

It seems a perfect solution for copying old slides if you have a Nikon D3, Micro 60mm F2.8, and BR-5 adapting ring.

Questions about this item:

Gord M  will this product work with the D5100 Nikon.What else is required to fit this copier to the camera?
MARK L  This item needs to be mounted to either a 55mm or 60mm micro(macro) lens. It does not mount directly to the camera.
Vicki C  Anyone have any ideas for using this on a canon EOS body?
Vicki C  Thank you for taking the time to reply. I hadn't realized this didn't mount, but screws on. If I had read slowly I would have realized it. I think I'm going to give it a try, just having trouble finding the adapter ring I need for my macro lens.
Shopper  Using a Nikon D3100 camera and ES-1 adapter, what other accessories are needed?
ALLEN F  The directions say you must have a Nikon 60mm Micro lens, or a 55mm Micro lens. Plus you need a bellows to get the lens away from the camera. I just happened to have a bellows (I have an extra one also.) and I had to borrow the 60mm lens from a friend. There was also another adapter needed that I didn't have. It still worked for me though I couldn't quite get the super sharp focus I wanted, still it was good enough. I'm sure any close focusing lens will work. Plus you can get some extension tubes for $6 on ebay which I also have and that makes any lens focus very close. I don't think the camera you are using makes any difference.
