    for the pb-6:
    This was in the fuji S2 manual:

    attach the PB-6 vertically,
    then change if you want.

    I would add, consider cleaning them for dust inside.
    it will be far easier than cleaning a sensor.

    The answer is yes. I use my PB4 bellows with the D100 and it works
    fine. Remember about the fact that the mount on the bellows rotates
    (although often quite stiff), but once you get the camera mounted you
    can turn & lock the camera as desired. One word of warning,
    however--a bellows tends to sit in the closet and collect dust, and
    this gets pumped back onto your CCD when you use it, not a good thing
    to have to deal with. So vacuum the bejesus out of the insides of the
    bellows prior to use.

    thks,
    does it make sens to copy slides using a D100 or
    would the quality be better using a slide copyer like
    the canon 4000us
    (i am trying to convince myself buying the d100 instead of the slide
    copyer :) )

    It won't do the kind of job that either a dedicated slide scanner or
    even a flatbed scanner with TP capabilities will do, but for
    non-demanding applications it might be worth a try.
