A guess a digital slide duplicator would bad called a scanner.

I'm surprised scanning Kodachrome has not gotten easier.
I was under the impression people had figured that out with the last
generation of film scanners. And the software involved.
I was assuming it was quite doable with my super Coolscan 5000.
Could this kind of thing be very software involved?

I also think I'm noticing the last generation of film scanners seems to be
the LAST! The prices are going down and the models are not upgrading. From
all I've noticed.
