    I can sell you a near new (call it a demo model) Canon flatbed film scanner
    9900f model with 12 month's warranty for a very small $590.00. That's $200
    off the RRP.

    You can scan 20 slides at a time with this or your 35mm negative film. It's
    USB connected and will work with Macs or PCs.

    The contrast is the killer with camera duplication. Be it film or digital.

    Don't know how you would do this with digital, but I seem to recall
    from years ago that you get better results when duplicating if you
    "pre flash" the negative. I guess the idea is to reduce contrast by
    giving an overall very brief exposure before you start copying.

    Perhaps someone with skills in this area might comment?

    When daylight type film is used there is a high contrast. fogging the
    film reduces these highlights.(by direct preflashing the film) Low
    contrast film is better to use - duplicating film 6 asa etc.which you
    don't have to pre fog.

    Digital camera duping can be done by bracketing exposures and combining
    them to give a good result. Same with a scanner an under and over scan
    can be combined to reduce the contrast range.

    In years gone by I used to use 200 ASA film at 100 ASA then "pull" process
    the film bu lowering the developer temprature to reduce the contrast when
    making "internegs". The prints from these negatives looked flat by today's
    standard but the (usually) full tonal range of the original slide was kept.

    I briefly attempted a slide *duplication* with my old D60 but as I said in
    my original response... Contrast is the killer. There is no way I know of,
    to alter the Gama curve in the camera. This is so easy to do with a scanner
    as to make the whole camera duplication exercise obsolete.
