Converting slides

Recommended Posts

As long as they meet the QC criteria, yes. You will need to use a good quality scanner, or a slide copier or similar setup on a god quality DSLR. Many of us have older photos on Alamy converted from film, and they still sell.

If you have archival privileges


uploads bypass QC. But obviously it only applies to images which are of at least some historical interest, and not just old. Out of 5000 slides I only have a few hundred which qualify.

I use an Illumitran- with bellows and an enlarger lens for 35mm., and the kit zoom for 6x6.

I was thinking of one of those old Russian cameras with a Jupiter lens.




Not familiar with old Russian kit or anything old Russian for that matter. Now if you had said dog quality. I actually upgraded my gear to shoot dogs - well that was one of the reasons I keep telling myself. It does take some serious kit to shoot a running dog and get near 100% hit rate.
