Nikon ES-2 slide copying adapter kit for D850 now shipping

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

The Nikon ES-2 slide copying adapter kit for use with the Nikon D850 is now available for purchase and shipping, according to retailers.

A reader has forwarded us the latest newsletter from Nikon retailer Grays of Westminster, stating that the ES-2 slide adapter is now available. The ES-2 is also available on Wex Photo Video’s website for £139.

Inside the box is

  • ES-2
  • Strip film holder
  • Mounted slide holder
  • 62mm adapter A, for the AF-S 60mm f/2.8G Micro
  • 62mm adapter B, for the AF 60mm f/2.8D Micro

The Nikon ES-2 is compatible with the AF-S 60mm f/2.8G Micro or AF 60mm f/2.8D Micro, or for DX cameras the AF-S 40mm f/2.8G DX Micro.

One of the Nikon D850’s features is the ability to convert negative film to positive in-camera, eliminating the need for software. It uses the ES-2 to achieve this, but the adapter’s release has been delayed since it was announced at the same time as the D850.
