Camera compatibility and connection guide
for the Xtend-a-Slide slide & film converter

These pages will tell you whether Xtend-a-Slide works with your NIKON camera, and describes any parts you WILL need IN ADDITION TO THE XTEND-A-SLIDE PLUS.

The Xtend-a-Slide Plus has been tested by Photosolve with all the cameras marked with an asterisk in the list below. Customers have reported good results with other models as well (those appearing without asterisks). The approximate amount of +diopter close-up lens required for each camera is shown below the picture of the close-up lens set. Where a +10 magnification requirement is shown, the recommended close-up set is the 4-lens DKE close-up product and you would use the MACRO lens from that set.
Wherever possible (generally this applies to lens adapters), the actual item picture is shown, and links are provided to the source. NOTE: If you DON'T find your camera on this list, it DOESN"T necessarily mean that it won't work. It may mean that that we haven't tested it, or we haven't had any feedback on that combination, or we're behind in getting the information to the list. Contact us and we'll check to see if it can work for you.
