Hi all, I'm on holiday back home in Sweden and enjoying lazy days. This morning I was looking in my toys cupboard. Loved to play a little with the Contax G1 and 45/90, what a camera that was (is)!
But I also found a rather large archive with 500 or so 6x8 Velvia slides (shot with Fuji GX680III) that brought back both memories and smiles.
Back in the day I bought a Minolta Dimage MultiPro medium format scanner (still have it, unused for oh so many years). Sure, it worked fine, but my Credo 60 blows it out of the water in comparison.
So, I was thinking, maybe I should give it a go to actually shoot the transparencies with my Alpa!? I know that the Helvetar 75 is beautiful at rendering closeups and I have enough adaptors to come close enough. Thinking of using the filmholder from the Dimage MultiPro. And I am not worried of working out the lighting.
However, here's what I do worry about, how on earth can I be sure that the slide is perfectly parallel to the sensor???
I do have the groundglass and loupe and dial it in by being patient and going from corner to corner several times, but there must be a more sofisticated way.....how would you do it?
