Hi guys,
I am having a hard time finding anywhere on this forum information on copying negatives with the camera. I don't even know if this is the best place to post - if not, please correct me.
I am using a D800E with the bellows and the slide copier attachment from Nikon, with a Nikkor 50mm f1.8 in between the two, as described previously in this forum.
I am shooting raw and plan to use Photoshop CS2. I copied a few slides and I started to play with them. I am not satisfied and I don't want to start shooting hundreds of negatives to realize later that there was a better way. I tried shooting with a blue filter - that did not seem to help much. I tried to change the WB on the camera, based on a non-exposed frame, that seemed to do nothing.
I tried the trial version of CF Systems Colorperfect - not impressed.
I really need help - I believe that it can be done, I just need the correct approach. And no, I don't want to send them to a company that does this, I want to use the hardware that I have...
Thank you

Rad Constantine
