My camera is not expensive enough for that. :)
The reason is that the slide duplicator is made for a 35mm SLR so it
will recreate a 24mmx36mm transparency onto a 24mmx36mm
negative/transparency/digital sensor. The problem is that most DSLR's
have sensors that are only 16mmx24mm or smaller, so they would only get
the center part of the image (44% of the area). However there may be
similar devices made recently that will work with the smaller sensors.
Canon and Nikon both make DSLR's with so-called "full frame" sensors,
but they are too expensive for me right now.
The other issue is that these things have lenses builtin that are
probably not so good. Since I already have a macro lens that will focus
close enough to duplicate a slide, I just need a fixture to hold it in
front of the lens. And then experiment with it a little bit.
Or maybe I should buy the most expensive slide scanner I can find and
start my own home business.
