Nikon ES-1 reviews

ES-1 Slide Copying Adapter is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 101.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nikon ES-1 Slide Copier Works as advertised. I used the copier with PK13 tube and a 55mm macro lens as recommended and got great results. Once I got the copier turned correctly and extended to the proper distance, I put painters tape around it to hold its position (painters tape leaves no residue). I used my monitor as a light source with the brightness turned all the way up then set my lens at f8 and white balance on the camera at automatic and the camera set on RAW. I could then make any corrections in my raw processor. I made slight exposure corrections for each slide using shutter speed. Remember to remove as much dust from the slides as possible with a brush or air.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a simple solution to a complicated problem I purchased the ES-1 along with a 40mm micro-nikkor DX, looking for a simple and easy way to digitize many years of 35mm color slides. I had always heard that scanning was a time consuming,expensive and difficult process. my preliminary test indicate that the ES-1 along with the micro-nikkor will make this an easy job with simple setup that you can come and go from at your own pace. my initial outing with a nikon d-7000, copying a type A kodachrome slide produced results beyond my expectation and it only took minutes to do. I still have a great many slides to go but I expect the process to go smoothly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product - Great Results If you are looking for an alternative to scanning slides, this is a good choice. If you follow the instructions provided by Nikon, and use a constant output, constant temperature light source, the results are stellar. I use a Nikon SB-800 flash with the diffuser installed and the illumination is constant and soft, with a predictable color temperature. I use this product on a Nikon 60mm f2.8D Micro Lens plus an Extension Tube. An Extension Tube is definitely needed to get the most magnification possible on a FX sensor camera body. I have not tried this product with a DX sensor camera.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gets the job done Perfect for slide duplicating. Purchased w/ Kenko 25mm extension tube, to mount on D700 with 55mm f/2.8 AIS Micro. Should work with 60mm micro. Will need longer extension tube if using DX format camera. Use SB800/SB900 as slave with built in flash in commander mode. Very fast to drop in slide, capture, move on to next. Process in Lightroom/Photoshop. Fairly easy to recover extremely bad color shifted old slides. Con: Design precludes sliding negative strips thru for digital archiving. Need to build/improvise carrier for negatives, to avoid scratching negatives during capture. I would have given a 5-star rating if negative strips could be accommodated more easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For use instead of a scanner I use this to copy slides and negs using a D300s and Nikon 40mm f/2.8 DX. Simple to use and outstanding results. I might mention in reference to a couple recent comments, f/11 is probably not the best aperture to use because diffraction starts to get a little aggressive . I get good results at f/4-5.6. I'm using a similar setup to that commenter...2 SB600 strobes controlled by Commander mode in the D300s. I adjust exposure by adjusting strobe output. The camera is in manual mode. The other thing is the creation of a RAW file. You can do slides or negs. If a negative, simply invert the tone profile in Photoshop or Lightroom to create a positive image to edit. Google that for specifics...there are a couple of good YouTube videos that explain it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! This worked great! I have the 55mm f/3.5 and the PK13 extension. You have to put the slide in between the adapter the the metal clips, NOT between the metal clips and the diffuser. I put a large flash about a foot on the other side and had it on 1/128 power manualy adjusting the exposure. I was shooting around f/8 at 1/250. I moved the flash back and forth to get just the right exposure. Focusing was kind of a pain as I was shooting tethered and Live view doesn't work when you are doing that. If anyone knows how to see a live view image while tethered, I'd love to hear how you did it (Lightroom).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works for me! Using this item with the Nikon AF-S Micro-Nikkor 60mm f/2.8G ED Macro, on a Nikon D800, and mounted using the BR-5 adapter ring, I'm able to almost effortlessly shoot slides for viewing on monitors.I use a light box for light, shoot tethered, in RAW, and process in Lightroom 5.I just hold the camera down to the light use auto focus and about an 8.0 stop.Shutter speed is mostly irrelevant. I get just a bit more than full frame Regarding copy quality, this seems to produce plenty of sharpness and detail for enjoying my old slides -- and I have thousands. When I see something that is really worthy, I put it aside for a real scan--one day.4 stars: only for the lack of locking screw in the swivel function. Well made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DSLR Slide Copying with ES-1 I needed to find a way to create quality copies of 35mm slides more quickly than could be done using a film scanner. I use the ES-1 with my Nikon D200 and the Nikon DX 40mm AF-S Macro focus lens. My slide copying stand includes my my Nikon SB-800 speedlight and the SC-28 cable to connect the camera hot shoe to the flash. I also use the Nikon DR-6 right angle viewfinder attachment to make it easier to view the image. The set-up pictured ensures I have a process that produces consistent results. With a Nikon DX camera and the 40mm lens there is no need to use any extension tubes or adapter rings. The ES-1 screws right into the end of the lens. With the set-up I can copy about 90-100 slides per hour including the transfer to my PC and any post processing, such as cropping, that might be required. The 10MP D200 creates a jpeg file that is about 5MB. From this you can make a 300 dpi print up to 12 x 8.5 inches.
