Easing the process for making digital files from your film originals, the ES-2 Film Digitizing Adapter Set from Nikon is a clever accessory for re-photographing 35mm negatives and slides. Designed to be paired with a macro lens, such as the AF-S Micro NIKKOR 60mm f/2.8G ED, this adapter is fitted to the front of the lens and holds the film at the minimum focusing distance of the lens to ensure critical sharpness. Dedicated film holders for both film strips and mounted slides are included, as well, to help hold the film taut and to benefit handling. While suitable for use with any camera, this adapter is particularly well-suited for the D850 due to its dedicated Negative Digitizer mode and ability to automatically reverse colors in-camera to expedite the digitizing process.

    ES-2 Film Digitizing Adapter Set is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for copying any 35mm images I ordered this last August! It finally came into stock. Mine arrived this week. Of course I just had to try it out. I have 2 D800E bodies. I put my 60mm f2.8 (latest edition) on and added the 35mm color negative. �It was easy to setup, conversion was also easy. I shot RAW file. I leave a small amount of the blank orange film area. In Camera Raw, I use the eye dropper to set the blank area. This sets the orange area to natural. I set the image as I would any negative. I then open in PS, and invert. I look for any black or dark white area. I set that to neutral in levels. I make any needed adjustments and save.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nikon ES-2 is not perfect I'm not sure why it took Nikon so long to ship the ES-2.� First shipments were initially anticipated in November 2017, then postponed to the end of March 2018.� I got mine in April.� Given all this time, I would have expected something closer to perfect.� Still, it suits my needs fairly well. Once the focus is set, inserting and photographing slides is a fairly simple proposition. So far, I have used only the slide mount holder.� The shortcoming I see here is some play once it is inserted.� This means that some adjustment is needed while looking through the viewfinder after the slides have been positioned.� Along the same lines, while the locking screw prevents the adjustment ring from sliding once it has been positioned, it does not, contrary to the directions, see to prevent it from rotating. I might wish there were more detailed instructions, or hints and tips, about the overall process.� Which side of the slide mount holder should face the diffuser screen?� Does it matter?� What aperture is best?� Are there recommended ways to arrange the light source (I'm just pointing it out of a north-facing window during daylight hours).� But at this point, I'm making it up as I go along, and the results so far are very satisfactory.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Worth the Wait I finally received the ES-2, which was on backorder since last August. It is well made and the film holders are finely finished and operate smoothly, with click stops for each frame. Unlike the ES-1, it is plastic rather than metal, but strong and of high quality. The base using has a 52 mm thread and a telescoping section for focusing. It comes with two 62 mm adapters - a short one for a 60/2.9 AFS and long for a 60/2.8 AIS macro lens. In order to use it with manual 55/2.8 Micro Nikkor, you must impose a 10 mm extension ring between the lens and the ES-2. I use a Nikon K-4 ring, which has been discontinued. There are suitable rings available on the internet. A simple 52-62 step-up adapter is the wrong length for either ES-2 adapter. I look forward to using this slide copier. I have hundreds of rolls of negative film, printed once but never scanned. Instead of minutes per frame with a Nikon scanner, I can "scan" 5-10 rolls/hou with the ES-2 and a 24 MP camera and get equal quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Peasy! Very light, very simple to adjust. Attached to a Micro Nikkor 60mm 1:2.8 lens, it made quick work of three hundred slides. Easy to load, easy to use in available light, it makes the old bellows and slide-copy adapter seem like the Stone Age.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replaced my scanner I'm using this device with a D750 and then converting my negatives to positives in either Photoshop or Lightroom. �It has replaced the need for a drum scanner for most work. �I gave it a 4/5 because I wish the openings in the negative carrier were a little larger. �As constructed I cannot capture a small sliver of the outer edge of the exposure. �I like to have the entire frame and a little empty space to work with. �Otherwise, very well made and very well thought out. �I get huge files that allow a lot of flexibility. �A lot easier to use than a flat or film scanner. �Highly recommend this tool.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good The adapter set is very good, typical for Nikon is well build in details and is quite full - there are two 52-62mm adapter rings - one is tube-like, I assume it's for crop DSLR (it has to be further away a bit for 1:1 size frame), the only negative is that it is fully plastic, while the first one ES-1 is fully metal. I hope they will also integrate somehow the Coolscan software for easy converting the negatives - either in camera or as ACR plug-in - even better, if you can choose film type and etc... as the original Coolscan software. The option in camera of D850 is working only in JPEG mode, which is not good for me, first I want uncompressed file and second I use the HDR mode as it gives much more dynamic for the slides. I could easily be done and I hope it will be in future.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have wanted something like this for years. More detailed reviews have been written and some of the deficiencies outlined. I recommend these for the detail on color accuracy.� For me, however, this device is a big step forward to digitize my old film strips and slides.� Some of these are more than 50 years old.� You will probably want extra slide and film strip holders so that a helper can have new slides and film strips ready to hand to the photographer as soon as a set is finished.� These slide and film strip holders are only on pre-order.� After having the ES-2 on pre-order for eight months it is aggravating to be on pre-order again.� One problem that really slowed up my work is the fact that the film strip holder is designed for 35 mm film.� All of my older film strips are 40x40 mm and thus constant adjustments are necessary.� I would love to have a holder for my older film strips.� Natural lighting works well but much of my digitizing work is at night so I use a lamp that has controls for light quality and brightness.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nikon ES-2 Film digitizer. After a long wait on the pre order, I got my ES-2. The results were better than I had hoped for. I have tried several film and flatbed scanners over the years. The ES-2 Paired with the Nikon d850 make an easy and fast digital scan of slides and negs, both color and black and white.
