Nikon ES-2 film digitising adapter for D850 shipping soon

Nikon ES-2 adapter to digitize film on the D850 delayed to March 2018

Nikon has announced that its ES-2 film digitising adapter made for use with the D850 will begin shipping at the end of this month.

The Nikon ES-2 is an adapter that mounts on to the D850, as well as the D5, Df, D810, D810A, D750, D610, D500, D7500, D5600, D5300 and D3400 using these Nikkor lenses:

  • AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G
  • AF-S Micro NIKKOR 60mm f/2.8G ED
  • AI AF Micro-Nikkor 60mm f/2.8D

When mounted you can convert both 35mm slides and negatives into digital files without the need for a film scanner.

The camera’s digitising function automatically reverses the colours and stores them as JPEG images, Nikon says.

For negative strips, use the FH-4 Strip Film Holder with the ES-2 and for slides, use the FH-5 Slide Mount Holder with the ES-2.

The Nikon ES-2 adapter is priced $139.95 and begins shipping on 30 March.
