Re: Setup suggestions for slide and film 'scanning' using a Lumix G2?

I too would like to digitise my slides. I would prefer to do it using my camera if possible. I have an E-M5 and 60mm macro Zuiko. I also have a daylight-balanced light box from the days when I shot 35mm transparencies. The missing element is a way of holding the camera parallel with the slides - I don't think a tripod would be a comfortable solution. Or would it be better to go down the slide scanner route? Or paying a firm to do the scans for me? This last option is tempting, but I wonder how goothat's quality is and whether they'd supply RAW files rather than JPEGs?
