Default Looking for a slide copier for Oly C5050

I recently purchased an Olympus C5050 camera.

Does anyone know if they make a slide copier for it.

Something similar to the Happenstance device for the
Nikon 900 sereis.

Thanks

If you're serious about doing slides, get yourself a scanner with a slide adapter, or a dedicated slide scanner like the PrimeFilm 1800i...the type of device that attaches to a camera is lousy (I'd like to say a lot worse, but kids may be reading this).

According to the Olympus C-Series accessories chart, you can use the PhotoGenetics version plus a CLA-1 tube (but I still say avoid it like the plague).

I've heard of people making one out of empty bog rolls or something.

When you think about it, it can't be too difficult.

It can be possible, some have glued on a UV/Skylight filter on that too to give it some threads, but I know I wouldn't trust my epxensive camera to a dusty toilet paper roll. It certainly wouldn't protect the retractable lens from getting bumped out of alignment!
