Any of the cheap slide-copier attachments for SLRs (essentially a
bellows, lens, and holder for a slide, with opal glass behind the
slide) will do the same thing as a Duplikin and permit capture of the
full frame edge to edge. I found the Duplikin cropped a bit, and had
to alter mine.

These attachments are very cheap (eBay) and available in multiple lens

The Duplikin used T-mount adapters, so could be fitted to any common
SLR. Convenient but the slide copier, while slightly more hassle,
will give better quality.

I found that all my old Duplikin stills paled next to frame grabs from
a very good telecine transfer of the same film. A bit depressing!
