    I have a Rollei and think it's not as good as the Kodak Ektagraphic.

    I looked up the ektagraphic models, there sure are a lot of different models, and they sound like they are good. And then there is the ektapro models. Forgetting the bells and whistles are there differences in projection quality or build quality that would recommend one over the other. Thank s Norm

    The Ektapro is the newest line of projectors from Kodak. I believed they made them in Germany. They use the same lens and tray although their tray has cover you can use the same tray as the Carousel and Ektagraphic. They have brighter lamp. Built indisolve control as well as RS-232 interface for computer controlled slide show. They tend to have very high price even used. The Ektagraphic are a bit better than the Carousel series and can be had for very low price used.

    The Ektagraphics were designed to be very robust, and to ensure sufficient image brightness in large rooms.

    Think commercial sales presentations, vs. in home amateur use.

    I had a Rollei P35 for many years with the standard isco lens. Then I upgraded the lens to the S-Projar. That made a huge difference. The highlights in your slides just sparkle and add a three dimensional effect. I now have the Rollei P350 AF which is 10 or 15 years newer. I'm very happy with it.

    The carousels were the consumer models with higher models having more features.
    Concurrently the Ektagraphics were the Pro models. They used the same optical systems.
    I'm not familiar with the new Ektapro models. I guess because I haven't come near to wearing out the one I've got.

    For image quality I don't think the Leica machines can be beat.I haven't been involved in the trade for a long time but
    believe the Rollei and Braun machines came from Asia not Germany. Keep in mind, my memory is pretty much shot.

    At least the Rollei company did not resort to re-branding. But they had built an own plant in Singapore to profit from lower wages.

    I've seen Schneider projection lenses for Kodak projectors. These days they go for peanuts if you can find them sitting around unused. They show up on occasion at camera stores. Yes, I know, camera stores are harder and harder to find.

    Better 35 mm projector

    No.1 Cardboard or plastic mount no glass is better with a curved field lens.
    No.2 Slides in glass calls for a flat field lens.

    The major difference of a Leitz projector over a Kodak or other branded projector is the lighting system.
    EK and the others use a heat absorbing glass, to protect the slide. Leitz does not use a heat absorbing glass
    but a Dichroix [SP] reflector to absorb the heat this results in a Whiter light on the screen.
    This can be shown this way. Set up two projectors a Leitz and a Kodak side by side to project on a large White screen.
    Use slide frames to open the mechanism and adjust the projectors to get the identical size os on the screen.
    The Leitz will be a pure White while the EK will have a Greenish tinge.
    I'm sure this will have some effect on a slide projection quality.
