The Novoflex Castel Digital Slide Copying Attachment provides a fast and easy way to digitize all of your 35mm and 6x7cm slides. Simply attach the unit to a Novoflex Castel-Q, Castel-L, or Castel-Mini focusing rack and precisely position your slide for capture with a digital camera. This method of duplication significantly reduces the time and costs of traditional high-resolution scanning.

Castel Digital Slide Copying Attachment is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flexible Platform for Slides and Negatives I purchased the Digital Slide Copying Attachment at the same time as a Castel XQ II focusing rail. The copying attachment is fairly large, solidly constructed (no wobble) and easily adapted to slides up to 7x6 cm. A small vertical stop is included. The whole assembly moves fore and aft via the rails, which are clamped in place by squeezing the rails together. The arbor moved up or down to center on the lens, and has a spring clamp to hold the slide mount in place. It is deep enough to use with a film strip holder for negatives. With the demise of dedicated film scanners, this device makes it possible to scan film with a digital camera with even better results than by scanning, and far faster.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent alternative to a film scanner I use one of these with a Novoflex Castel Q focus rack. Both the rack and the copy attachment are very well made, solid, and have a precision feel to them. Contrary to the answers below, the unit works very well with strips of 35mm or 120 film. It has a spring clip that can be orientated horizontally or vertically, and a movable vertical arm (not seen in the item picture), which together make positioning the film strip very easy. I use a Nikon SB900 flash on 1/4 power to illuminate the neg/slides from behind, and a macro lens on my camera. This is very fast in use. For B&W film, I import into Photoshop and invert each negative, then do any post processing while I'm at it. For color transparency it is even simpler. I haven't tried this for color negs, but it can be done I believe if you search out the necessary conversion software. All in all this is much faster and less bother than using my film scanner and Silverfast.
