i had a shot at converting some slides
i used the slide holder that is on my HP scanner
it has a light inside that stays on for a fair while
i mounted the K10D on the bottom of my tripod and tried to get it all square
using the old Pentax manual f1.7 50mm lens on a 2x convertor with no glass i got this result

it was nice to be able to tweak the photos a bit
i am happy with the results and hopefully can figure a better way of setting it up hmmmm

more here if you want to see

This is quite an impressive result!If you had not mentioned it, I would have thought it was a regular photograph.

A while back, I tried using a scanner with a transperancy adaptor, but the results were marginal at best! Your approach howver is similar to what I am planning to try once my Opteka slide copier arrives (should be this week). I have about 1000 slides to copy--something to do indoors when the weather around these parts turns cold! I'm impressed by the various techniques used by contributors to this thread.
