I’m trying to get a repeatable setup working to do scans of slides and 35mm negatives. From last count there is about 1500 slides (currently) and 2-3k 35mm negatives. My mother-in-law keeps adding more.
I want a setup that will allow me to put in a strip of 35mm or a slide, take a shot, advance to the next one. I feel the whole light table thing to me would drive me up the wall trying to line things up doing thousands of them.
Using this Nikon ES-2 Film Digitizing Adapter Set https://www.amazon.com/dp/B076QFVHJZ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_PdzWDbTFKGJXQ seems like it would take all of the guess work out of “positioning” the film.
Can someone tell me what else I would need?
This is equipment that I currently have. I have a Sony a7rii, 55mm 1.8, a 5dm3, 100mm macro, Tripods, ball heads.
Would the Sony FE 50mm f/2.8 Macro work with the Nikon ES-2 or would I really need the 60mm lens? What would you suggest?
I feel the other main thing so would need is a light source. What would you suggest for that?
