Fall 2012 UPDATE: Read what others say about this technique Transferring 35mm Slides to Your Computer Quickly and Easily April 2006 Anyone beyond a certain age or who has inherited photos from their parents will have a quantity of 35mm slides they want to get into their PC. I don't know what the appeal was for 35mm slides back then, maybe it was dropping them all into a Kodak Carousel projector and just storing the loaded cartridges for ready use, but whatever the reason my dad left me 100's of slides. I have worked out a simple technique for getting adequate quality digital images of 35 mm slides using a typical digital camera and a cheap camera store accessory.
*December 13, 2006 *– We all have improperly focused photos that we wish we could fix. Instead of merely hoping to turn back time, photographers can look to Stanford University research to help readjust focusing post-capture. Recent Stanford PhD graduate and project researcher Ren Ng will present, today, a plenoptic camera, also called the 4D light field camera or Digital Lens, at a Camera Owners of the Bay Area (COBA) meeting in San Francisco. The prototype plenoptic camera and software can change depth of field on a digital image after exposure. Announced in October 2005, the plenoptic camera prototype quickly grabbed the attention of photographers, technophiles, and industry insiders. Since then, the 4D light field technology has been getting increasingly closer to becoming commercialized for everyday use.

Author: J.A.J Aaronson - Updated: 5 October 2010 | Comment One of the conundrums that has faced photographers since the very inception of the medium has been attempting to work out how to effectively capture movement. The representation of motion in a still image has been a problem with which many photographers have grappled and with which almost as many have come up with entirely different solutions.

Making nice photographs when all you have for lighting is a bunch of tungsten shop lamps can be a real challenge. It is particularly hard to photograph polished brass under these conditions. So this weekend I set out to build a flash diffuser to improve the quality of the photography on this site. Most of the diffuser is made with foam board and packing tape. I laid out a square 30" inches on a side and then drew a cut line from each corner to the center of the top line. This gave me two right triangles that when taped together matched the center triangle.
Reflected "See-Through" Perhaps you are wondering what makes this ability possible. The answer lies in infrared rays.
Generally speaking, the march of technological progress gives consumers what they expect. More stuff for less money, all the time. Hurrah. Sometimes, though, some segment of the high-tech industry gets caught in an unprogressive eddy for a while.
also open part 2 now in a second window Ohhh... It's so easy--and I was making it so hard! Over a year ago I began trying to work out a cheap and easy way to scan 35 mm slides on an ordinary flatbed scanner--to avoid buying the Transparent Media Adapter for several hundred dollars. This is the third--and, I think, the final--stage in figuring out how to do the same job for free.
