Re: Considering E-PL1 for specific use - input, please

What kind of setup do you use to replicate the slides? The reason I am asking is that I have a large number of slides that I wish to digitize as well. I have an Epson V500 scanner, and it does suck because everything has to be scrupulously clean and it's slow. I had thought one method could be to use the slide projector and a stack loader, and mount the camera on a heavy tripod and take pictures of the screen. The other strategy might be to build a rig where you could load slides in one at a time and take pictures of the slide directly. Since I have an E-PL1 and the 45mm f2.8 panasonic macro lens I could perhaps do some testing.
