    Default slides viewing at home low$$$$$

    Hieee....

    Just to share this experiment at home... a way to share slides with your family and friends for fun (for thise who aren't that critical of "projector" quality pics.....)

    Equipment needed -
    1- Digital camera (assuming that all film user have one simple 2mpix digicam + TV output)
    2- Mini slides viewer (like the diascop mini 3 $20)
    3- Mounted slides


    Procedure,
    1- Connect the cmaera to charger supply (do not use battery)
    2- Set camera to normal shooting mode and connect TV cable to TV & put the TV to video in channel
    3- It would be great if the camera can be set to incandescant light white balance.
    4 - Put slide on the slides viewer
    5- Then aim the camera as if you are taking photo of the displayed slides on the slide viewer.
    6- Stack books or albums to put the camera to the righ hight - adjust accordingly.
    7- If you wan to JIG up the setting, make a mounting using a old shoe box ........
    8- try it out and see the results (don't expect....a high qiality image on your TV)........remember to pre focu seach time you change a slide.....heheheheehheeh!!!!!!!

    Have fun trying.....

    regards,
    me

    Well, that actually depends on the quality of the digital camera, what f-stop you use, the quality of the light source and the slide itself. Too high contrast slides doesn't work too well.

    Here's a sample done with a Coolpix 990 + ES-E28 Slide Copying Adaptor. Coolpix cameras usually perform better because of their excellent macro capabilities.



    But hey, you can get used projectors for like $80 in places at Cash Convertors. And you can load 50-80 slides into a magazine and change them via remote control.... sure beats the TV output.
