Use of digital camera to transfer 35mm slides to digital
by Ralph S - 3/12/07 12:56 PM
I have more than 1000 35mm slides that I want to transfer to digital format.
Many years ago, using my Nikon with the standard 55mm lens, I 'transferred' 5x7s photos to slides. To drop the focal length, I used an extension tube between the camera body and the 55mm lens. It worked out very well. Presently I do not own a digital camera, so rather than buying a scanner, I would like to put the money towards the purchase of a dSLR camera, like the Nikon D80 (D200???).
Is this a reasonable approach?
