Thank you Attila! I have to try some serious setup like those when I have time.

Poilu already did it! He had very positive experience.

I know, his results show it's worth a try Smile . The resolution is perfect but i'm not so sure about colours and shadow detail. Well, shadow detail we can recover with multi-exposure, but matching the exposures could be time-consuming. And proper colours can be very difficult to correct sometimes.

you could do that a little easier with a bellows and slide copier setup. it would at least take away a bit of the guess work and make it easy to change magnification. I have an Asahi Pentax Auto bellows M w/ Slide Copier that I could easily utilize and there are plenty of older m42 bellows as well. Im sure however that there are a few companies still manufacturing bellows & slide copiers just for this purpose.

I bought a Pentacon slide copier setup for this purpose, only need to find time to try it.

Well about the cheapest new\do it all scanner is the Epson V500\600 it can scan documents, photos, 35mm film (results are quite good) and 120 film (results are good to very good). There are dedicated 35mm film scanners (like a rectangular box) e.g. Plustek that give better results but more expensive.
