Slide Conversion Project 2016

I figured you all might be interested in my slide conversion project. 

We've started with Christina's family (since those are the ones we have). 

My photographer friend Mark Phelps turned me onto a method of using a projector without it's lens going right into my DSLR with a macro lens. I did some research found I had most of what I needed already. Just got some extra sundries and a good projector.

Christina and I did 1200-1500 slides over memorial day weekend.

I still have a stack loader so we don't have to load/unload the tray coming for the projector and I got an AC power adapter for the camera yesterday so I don't have to stop and swap batteries now.

The setup:

The results are of course highly dependent on the quality of slides but I can color correct some in post processing.
