Has anyone experience in this activity. I made an extension for my old
film camera to hold the film at the correct distance from the lens when
the full range of extension tubes had been fitted between the lens and
the camera body, so that the image would just fill the frame. I then
had the film developed and transferred to CD. The results could be
considered as 'fair' I understand that I could not use this method of
copying directly using a digi camera because extension tubes cannot be
fitted between the lens and the body, and the resulting image would be
far too small.
My experience was about the same as yours. I finally took the slides into a camera store and had them transferred to CD. They did a very good job and the price was not that bad.
If your slides are irreplaceable and you really want good quality digital pictures that may be your best solution.
