6x6 slide projector
Does anyone know where I could get one of these and about how much they go for?
Thanks in advance,
... 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
i would love to get a 6x6 slide projector. any idea what the best type of screen to view is?
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.

Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

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.
edit: AF-2 with 4-6" zoom lens

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
