sorry, but we do not allow links to images or copy/paste image into the forum. The reason is, that after a while the links are broken and all discussions about images are worthless.
We want to have meaningful discussions within our forums also for new users in i.e. 3 months from now. This is only possible, if we have the images here uploaded on our forum server without external links.
Therefore all images for image discussions have to be uploaded directly here in the forum on our server. We delete all other links to images. The same counts for for links to the images on our CI gallery.
I just ordered two adapters from Ebay. They are coming from Poland. I also bought a couple of minoltas for parts, very cheap. I want to try to combine one of the adapters with the lense mount of the minolta camera to make an adapter to put a SD14 onto my minolta bellows without permanenty modifing the bellows.

thanks for the picture.
Have you tried to put some papertubing between the lens and the slideholder?
To some extend that might work if you only have to do a few slides.
If you have to copy much more slides try to use a slide projector.
Remove the lens from the projector and align the camera to it.
Depending on the camera lens it is about 25-30cm.
Mount both the projctor and the camera onto a pice of plywood or so
and you can do a magazin within a few minutes once the settings are right.
PS: ItÂ´s getting off topic now.Maybe we should start a thread on sliode-copying.
Does anybody tried to use AF-confirm chip on M42 adapter on SD14? Seems that Canon chip must work, because some people use Canon lenses on Sigma with just changing mount on lens. Electronic part seems the same.
first of all a warm welcome to the forum.
The electronic should work with the Sigma body,
but the harder part is mechanicly as the Sigma bayonett is smaller than Canon.
The radius doesnÂ´t match,and therefore the contacts are not aligned.
Thank you for answer. I just want to try to put the AF-confirm chip for Canon on M42-SA adapter to get focus confirmation with sound and focus point lighting also. There are lots of those chips on eBay.
NOT necessary! Focus indication perfectly works with all SD cameras without any chipping. With SD 9/10 the "beep" works too, with all manual M42-lenses, the SD14 indicates focus with the green round spot (at the viewfinder's bottom) ... the beep does not work!
So no problems should come up. Automatic exposure works with the cameras on Auto Aperture (dial on A-position!)
You just need to adjust their light meters.
That means, you make the cameras "believe" these apertures. Then you can adjust your "true" F-stops at the old lenses ... the cameras will expose automatically to the right shutter speeds.
Only one catch. If you remove the battery/reinsert it with a non-Sigma lens on, you loose the AF confirmation.
The trick to get it back is to remove battery/reinsert it with a Sigma lens on. Then you can swap lenses freely, and AF confirmation works.
Wow!... I did that!. Past Sunday I was walking the SIGMA SD9 wearing the Tamron 860 OEM and I run out of battery, so I swithched off the camera and replaced the batteries by a fresh set... I mean the standard 4xAA set (not the CR123 vertical ones).
I'll have to put the 18-50 back and replace again the battery...
Thanks for the clue!.
