Need recommendation on slide copier
Jan 23, 2007

Hi all.

I'd like to get a slide-copying attachment for my 20D. I'd also like to try using it on much smaller film, like 8mm and 16mm motion-picture film.

I see some devices out there that attach to lenses, but I don't know how they behave when zooming or what kind of focal length would be necessary to fill a frame with something as small as 8mm. I also wonder if they are c r a p. I'm more interested in quality than quick-and-dirty.

For example, something like this:

I have a Nikon LS-2000, but it does a poor job on negatives and obviously isn't useful for smaller film stock.

I'd appreciate any info or suggestions.
