    PE you hit on an important factor with this material it is a large backlit display material only. In 2009/2010 I extensively tested this material outside its designed use and this material certainly cant be used for intimate projection or duplication.

    What was wrong with Duratrans (Duraclear?), in your experience?

    Do tell - what happens when you try to project it? Does it fade quickly? Is it because the grain is the size of basketballs when you do this? I'd feel a lot smarter if I knew what questions to ask about what's wrong with Duraclear/fujiclear/etc...

    Shoot more film.
    There are eight ways to put a slide into a projector tray. Seven of them are wrong.

    Duratrans is not adjusted for proper contrast or Dmax when used outside of its recommended use. That use, as stated, is a backlit display.

    And in its recommended use it is (as well as the similar Fujifilm offerings) excellent. Not only in commercial use, but also as a big, colorful, brillant backlit picture in your home. There are several backlit options for such a use at home available.
    Highly recommended, a very nice feature to give your room a real highlight.

    Best regards,

    When ever Stephen is ready, I am ready with the money for 5 rolls and have a stellar project to shoot that I did not have time to wrangle before Dwayne's shut down, with over 60 rolls of the last batch of KR-64 in the freezer....time will tell if this really happens or not....

    All of this does not appear to fit Steve's guidelines for doing the work. The first 5 rolls may, but the rest?

    See what Steve posted Dan.

    At least looking at data sheets I cannot see a lack of Dmax. Duraclear even has higher Dmax than Ektachrome Duplicate.

    The clear display material has a Dmax similar to Ektachrome but the "frosted" material has higher Dmax AND Dmin. This is due to the "frosting" material that makes it semi opaque. The "similar" Dmax is about as far as the comparison can go due to issues of sharpness and grain (induced, in part, by the "frosting" material).

    These images are designed to be viewed in huge displays and from a distance. Not up close and not projected from small images into huge images. See Steve's comment above for more on this.

    Which post? Last I heard he was checking on interest, 5 roll minimum, $260 a roll....
