    I also pre-flashed the film to lower the contrast.

    Unfortunately last time I duped a slide was more than 4-5 years ago so I can't remember too many details on the preflashing. (Have to dig up my notes - if I can remember where I stored them )

    I'm using a Nikon Super Coolscan 8000 ED and scanning at 4000dpi. At that level of resolution, the image files are quite large and the resolution in the projected dupes is good.

    Those devices work fairly well, but to me, the built-in optics leave something to be desired. A better way to go IMO is with a bellows, a macro lens (or enlarging lens), a slide holder and an upside down color head as the light source.

    You can use ordinary color slide film for slide dupes, but you will need to make color filtration tests for each type of film you duplicate.

    With ordinary color slide film, you will encounter contrast build-up and you may need to pre-flash the film to correct this.

    How about contact printing onto duping film under a colour enlarger? At least then its easy to make colour corrections and there are no intermediate optics.
