    Leica SL for Minox Negative Copy

    I have a large number of Minox 8x11mm negatives that I made over the years from 1995 to 2013. Capturing these into digital format has proven difficult to get the quality that should be there. The Leica SL plus Focusing Bellows R used with a Summicron-R 50mm f/2 lens nets very satisfactory results, finally. :-)

    The Setup:


    Using Leitz Focusing Bellows R and Summicron-R 50mm f/2 to copy Minox 8x11mm negatives. Approximate magnification: 2.7:1

    Examples:

    Deutsches Museum
    Munich 1997



    Capture, unprocessed.



    Inverted and rendered.

    Minox B, APX100 - HC110
    Processed 01 Mar 98, Taken Nov 97
    20100515-0015-20


    Deutsches Museum - Turbine
    Munich 1997




    Capture, unprocessed.



    Inverted and rendered.

    Minox B, APX100 - HC110
    Processed 01 Mar 98, Taken Nov 97
    20100515-0015-22

    The tripod is temporary, just to test out the setup. It wobbles too much to focus precisely at this high magnification!
    I'll make a sturdier stand to hold the camera/bellows/lens assembly more securely and rigidly.

    enjoy,
    G
