It works very well and comes with a LED light attachment which the Nikon version does not have.
The setup I used was:
Nikon D800, PK11(a), PK13, Nikkor 55mm F2.8 AIs micro and the slide/film copier.
It is a lot cheaper than the Nikon equivalent (seems made of engineering plastic like the Nikon one) and includes the LED light attachment along with 5 lens adapters.

More alternative visualisations/previously un-scanned negatives or processed files from Oman, starting with this one, made in 2010.
Being stopped from travel and almost locked away for more than a year, I’ve not had much enthusiasm or even opportunity for photography. So going through my negatives/slides and digital files has kept me from going ‘Doolally’, for those not familiar with this word: it means ‘lose one’s mind’, derived from the boredom felt at a British Army transit camp in Maharashtra India, established in 1861.
