If you have old family photos on your slides, you may have considered digitizing them, but you may not know the best way. In this case, the 3D print adapter designed by [rostislav persion] may be exactly what you expect. It allows you to take slides using a standard DSLR.
The idea is simple. You put the slide in the adapter, focus on it, and then capture a picture. Of course, you also need to provide some lighting. In this case, the camera is mounted on a tripod and points to the appropriate light source. Once you do a little experiment and backlight the image in the way you want, you can lock everything in place and easily get energy from a pile of retro family memories in a short time.
For such a simple concept, we appreciate some small details in the implementation process. For example, Rostislav (Rostislav) designed a foam filled “gasket”, which is strong enough to fix the adapter without damaging anything, rather than just sliding the 3D cylinder on the SLR Lens. The sliding gasket composed of two parts has certain elasticity and can firmly fix everything, which is also a very good touch.
This approach should work well for the number of slides that most families may have, but if you need to digitize thousands of images, some automation will certainly help.
