Inchiquin Posted February 6, 2020 Share Posted February 6, 2020 The current thread on slide copying has prompted me to dust off my Illumitran and take another look at setting it up. I bought it 3 or 4 years ago for the specific purpose of digitising my 6x6 slides (I already have a Coolscan 5000 for 35mm), but the Rodenstock 75mm that came with it is too long to cover the whole of a 6x6, so I put it in a cupboard with the intention of finding a shorter focus lens when I could be bothered. The latest discussion prompted me to pick up a 50mm EL-Nikkor on eBay which should do the trick. I've tried to find a manual online for it but without success. Google has links to online manuals but they seem either to be non-functional or to lead to a download that looks decidedly dodgy. I don't suppose any of you Illumichaps have a PDF manual? Because of the likelihood of frying the 5D2's flash circuitry I'm thinking of firing the flash manually while the shutter is open. Trouble is, I've never really worked with flash and I've no idea how to do it manually. Alan Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
