Digital Pictures of Negatives!?!?!?!?!

I have been wanting to find a way to get my old film negatives into the computer without spending a LOT of money on a decent negative scanner. I pursuit of that I ordered a Pentax Slide Duplicator the other day that will be here soon. I couldn't wait though and wanted to try to DIY one. These are the results I got, as always click on the photo and it will enlarge. A description of my set up is at the end of the post.

And now for... SCOTLAND!

Dunottar Castle near Stonehaven. One of my favorite Castles of all time.

Loanhead of Daviot Stone Circle, Aberdeenshire, Scotland.

Here is how I did it, a translucent white box from Ikea, two flashes with Yongnuo RF-602 Flash Triggers. Camera on tripod more or less vertical and lined up with the slides, I used my K200d with M-50mm f4 lens. When I (Eventually) get my DA 100mm f2.8 WR Macro I will be able to get better copies, but as you can see what I have doesn't do too bad. The light in the front is to assist with focusing.
