I have a lot of slides and was thinking about buying a Bower Digital Duplicator. It's a lense for my Digital Rebel. Sure would make it easy if it works.

Please let me know ifyou like yours. Thanks!

Do you have link?

I use a painfully slowslide scanner.



Found this, and at a 1/3 of the cost of a dedicated scanner.

Yes, it's on ebay and it's up in 4 hours. It is:


item number 3844625821


There are 7 of them.

I already ordered it so now I can soon speak from experience.
I hope it is a good one. $It's $64.00.

Hi have you used the Bower Digital Duplicator you purchased from Ebay? Did you find any likes or dislikes or anything one should do or not do? I have ordered the same one and awaiting its arrival, any tips you can give me will be appreciated. I have thousands of slides I would like to put on CD's taken all over the world. Thanks

Eventhough it might be slow, a good slide scanner will blow the doors off of something you hook to your camera.

But its a question of money. A good slide scanner is more than 10 times the cost of that duplicator.

Hi, Yes, I used my Bower for a day then I got really busy. I like it a lot especially the fact that I can also use it as a close-up lens. I had fun in the back yard taking close-ups. Pictures with and without belows (I hope)

You've had your Bower Digital Duplicator for over three months now. How are you liking it? I'm thinking about getting one. Are you happy with yours?
