I think Really Right Stuff is terrific and god knows I own enough of it already  , but why does no one mention the Nikon PB-6 + film holder as a solution for D3/D3X bodies?  Are there incompatibility problems between the size/shape of the body and the camera end of the PB-6? Does the Krogh  RRS rig yield better alignment?

Ellis,
Unfortunately, you can't put a D3X on the PB6.

So, RRS is the solution.  If you have medium format to scan, I'd say that t Beseler Dual Mode Slide Duplicator is best, or maybe a Kenro.  Available every now and then on Ebay.

Is there a reason these wont work? PB-4?
I have heard the "Nikon Reason" which states the incompatibility due to the extra step of the landscape/portrait rotation due to the grip  -or- is it due to the electronic contacts?
Weird thing is, i have seen the PB-4 rig used on a D90.

Thanks!

Blatantiumages (name?)

I have not tried to put a camera on the PB4.  It's possible that it would work. When I was trying this unit out, there was no full-frame camera available (except the Kodak 14n which did not fit on the bellows).

I'm pretty sure I don't have one of those here to test, but, like the PB6, I'm pretty sure it would only work with the D700, if it worked at all.

I'll give it a shot when I'm back to my home base and report back.
Just found the site- great stuff!

Best,
