"RE: Slide Copying"

Hi, I tested out an old slide duplicator I had around (Hama I think), which I was hoping could offer a quick way of digitizing the wast amount of film I have around.
I compared to my Coolscan 5000 (or LS-50 which it is called in Europe)

I have publish my findings in an Norwegian discussion thread, but the photos are important:

As you can see, the duplicator has optics inside, so you don't need a lens, but the corner sharpness was not very good...
Also, the scanner has very effective dust removal, so you don't need any post processing. I did not touch or clean the slide first, to see the difference.
So a professional scanner is way better, but takes time...
