>My thoughts on your questions Stuart.  Others milage my vary.
>1.  The Oly bellows/slide copier is economical, but there are cheaper ways.
>That combination, along with the 80mm f/4 bellows lens, does a very
>respectable job, but there are better was, such as a Bowens Illumitran.
>That said, it is how I dupe slides.
>2. The slide duplicator has very little movement to allow you to "zoom in"
>on an area.  I recall Kerry commenting that she uses her 20mm macro lens
>such tasks.  I use the light head from my enlarger with a 20mm or 38mm and
>the bellows for that sort of work.
>3.   The quality of your B&W internegative will not match the quality of an
>original negative.  You will lose sharpness and gain contract in the
>duplication process.
>4.  Sorry, can't help you on availability, much less CHEAP.
>Good luck,
