Slide copying bellows? or ...

I have a large number (1000+) of slides to copy. After grinding through a bunch with my Epson 700 which does about 4 in 4 minutes, I would like to go the photo route. What lens adapters are available for Pentax K-3 bodies?

There are several routes. I use a Pentax K auto bellows with slide duplicator - see my post here: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/22-pentax-camera-field-accessories/170530...ml#post1790066

In my opinion, the only way duplicating slides using your camera will be faster than your Epson scanner is if you are going to do massive numbers of slides per session. Otherwise you will lose all the speed advantage due to the additional setup time using a bellows unit. And in either case, the time is going to be the same to remove residual dust from each film frame before copying.

The articles forum isn't for questions. I've moved your thread to the appropriate category, where I hope you will get more replies
