Digitizing slides with a camera

Film Discussion and Q & A - www.thephotoforum.com
I needed some digital images of some of my color slides. Using the scanner on my Canon MP990 takes a long time and, in my case, requires firing up an old Windows computer.

(The MP990 does not talk to my Linux system in the scan mode!)

Since my Canon SX130 will focus down to 1 cm in macro mode, I decided to try taking a photo of a slide. Since I have a tabletop device to hold the camera and a Logan 4x5 light panel, it was only necessary to cut a mask out of cardboard.

The raw image from the camera...

After a little work in the Gimp...

Monochrome negatives can also be scanned as long as your image editor can change it to a positive. Color negative will require a lot of editing due to the orange mask.
