Leshec:

Yes you can convert film strips using the ES-1. There is a spring clip to hold film in place. Depending on what digital Camera you use, the setup and results will be different. I use a 55mm f/2.8 AIS Micro Nikkor. I have done it with a D200 and a D700 {edited to correct body from D300 to D700; I don't own a D300}. If you use the D200 or any other DX camera, you need a spacer between the lens and the ES-1. A BR2 and BR-3 sandwich worked for me, but any other tube that you could put between the lens and the ES-1 of the same thickness will work. Using an FX camera requires no spacer. A better set up would be a PB-6 Bellows with a PS-6 slide copy attachment and the 55 mm Nikkor. There are many images in my gallery that were made this way,

So far I find the Epson pretty good. Since you can batch a number of images set up corrections and then walk away it is efficient, it produce TIF and JPEG files,but it can produce 48 bit RAW files too I think, but have not tried it. I am in the very early stages of using it for film copies. Regular document scanning is very easy. The unit has 2 lenses, one for reflective sources and one for film, so for its price range it is probably the best, but won't match Pro scanners costing much more
