Slide Copy


Hi everyone,
I own PC bellow and slide copier of Contax. I want to have your suggestion for using suitable light sources:
- Someone said just use the white sky?
- Use remote flash on the back of the slide. TTL system will manage the exposure?

Please help to comment. Thanks.

Found direct TTL flash to produce very contrasty and "grainy" dups. Some recommend lower contrast copying film ..... don't know anything about this!

I got half-decent dups by picking less contrasty shots and either "white sky" or large diffusser between flash gun and copier. TTL worked fine.

I just get an idea from a experience guy. He is using projector as light source. Believe it produces very good light balance.
