    Anyone copying slides - film recommendation?

    Is anyone still making slide copy film? Can you get reasonable results from ektachrome or similar? Otherwise I could scan them, but there is no fun in that.

    Kodak makes or made a film Kodak 5071 specifically of slide duping. It's very slow and tungsten balanced. If I remember correctly, it's pretty cheap.

    It is worth remembering that there can be quite a bit of batch to batch variation in colour balance with dupe films so either get a bulk roll or make sure that all rolls are the same batch.

    I used to use EPN, which was very neutral and accurate. I suppose today I'd use Astia 100F.

    Ektachrome SE dupe or Fuji CDU-II are the rare, but tasked to the job products.
    Other films can be used, but work best with flashing to control highlight contrast, as I recall.

    I will soon be putting a big post on my current interneg film calibration efforts.
    my real name, imagine that.

    If you can no longer get slide copying film, I used to find that I got better results if I copied them with a different slide film than the one they were shot on, and as low a contrast one as possible.

    Are you looking to copy the slides to another slide, or copy them to negative film for printing?

    I have an old box of Kodak 4x5 internegative film I would like to get rid of. I'm not sure when I will ever use it.
    f/22 and be there.
