    ... I had a Rollei 6 x 6 model years ago....sold it...but I still have a cheaper totally manual 6 x 6 Bell & Howell that works fine...I gave $25 IIRC...it may not be quite what the big name projectors are but it
    makes me drop my jaw when I use it to look ay my 6x6 transparencies...plentiful on the bay...not as common as 35 mm but they are still out there and go cheap

    For years I used a Dalite lenticular screen, not just because the projected image was really fine but mainly because of its much wider viewing angle that minimized the brightness drop-off for folks viewing from off to the side. I still have a 70x70-inch screen that adds WOW to the images.

    I have one also. They are great.

    Alas, I only have a 35mm projector. A 6x6 and 4"x5" projectors would be nice.

    I should add that my 35mm Ektagraphic AF-1 projector has the zoom lens which allows filling the 70x70-inch screen to its edges even with a reasonable projection distance. At one time I also had a Leitz Prado 6x6 projector (don't recall the lens focal length), and it required a fairly long projection distance to fill that screen, so had there been a zoom lens available for that projector it would have been a better choice. My point is that these factors should also be considered when seeking a 6x6 projector.

    I have a wonderful Rollei P11 projector for sale.
    I can even have it checked by a professional repairman before sale, but i am a little dubious if it must be shipped too far away.
    I live in Italy, and the projector is still in its original case, but i am afraid that shipping to the other side of the Atlantic would be quite expensive.
    Within EU the cost should be quite affordable, but i have to investigate about the cost of having it shipped to USA.

    If you are interested, i originally purchased a Leitz 80mm projection lens, to be used with 35mm slides (the P11 is double format).
    If i remember it should be a Colorplan, but for some strange reason the are no inscriptions on the lens itself (the cap is marked Leitz).
    If you decide to use the P11 also for 35mm slides, a simple adaptor made out a machined teflon tube could be used, and the Leitz lens would be ready for the P11.

    Probably you already know what a Rollei P11 is. As a reminder i write just two things:
    1) the P11 is the only affordable projector that uses a 500 watt lamp, so it is very powerful
    2) in my personal opinion, but i know that many others would agree, a well kept P11 is the second best choice for 6x6 slides, after the amazing (and outrageously expensive) Hasselblad

    If you send me a PM, i will read it a soon as possible, but maybe i will not be able to access the forum before 16th August

    have fun
