    single-slide projectors

    Did anyone ever make a slide projector that did 1 slide at a time?

    I have no desire to store my slides in those giant carousels, nor to laboriously load and unload them just to be able to project. A projector where I can just drop a slide in would be great.
    f/22 and be there.

    As far as I know, all projectors show only one slide at a time.

    I have a GAF that takes round or cube magazines, but also has an editing feature for projecting one slide without loading a magazine.

    Many old slide projectors had simple one-at-a-time mechanisms.

    There are also stack loaders, which is even more convenient.

    Not like me to be sour on any brand, but the Slide Cube series depends on square-cornered slides for feeding, and fails badly on rounded corner slides.

    I can recall "Aldis" slide projectors being standard in schools. One slide at a time in a to-and-fro sliding holder, with this being interchangable with a filmstrip attachment, which projected positives one at a time from a long roll of film winding from one spool to another, anything up to 50 or so frames to illustrate a lesson. Not seen an Aldis for a while, but they were solid grey or fawn finished metal, built like the proverbial battleship ! (A quick search shows lots on Ebay.)

    I just remembered the Argus projector I hade a millenia ago, you fed it one slide at a time and no provision for a magazine.

    Lietz made several, I have one which is circa 1950 but don't know the name of the model.. Unfortunately the bulbs are no longer available however I still have a one spare. Leitz also made one for public presentation which had a 300mm lens as standard circa 1960-65. The English firm of Aldis did several and can still occasionally be found on E bay etc.

    slides

    There were many single slide projectors going back to the days before electricity. Argus made the 300 which I just saw on eBay for $10, buy it now. Many held two slides so you could put one in or take it out while showing the other. The Argus is a snappy two tone blue color.

    There had been several manufacturers in West- and East-Europe that manufactured such. The best known was Leitz. The better models of such projectors had a double frame slider. Thus whilst projecting one slide one could look for the next and put it into the slider making it ready for projection.

    I see no difference between putting one or two single slides into a tray or in succession into a slider.

    Most straight-tray projectors can be stored including the tray very compact. Though often the space for the tray is used to take the electricity cable. One might cut a tray short though. Anyway such projectors can be very compact and those mere-slider projectors do not offer any benefits with prices of today, seen that even if the body might be smaller then still one half of the double slider would stand out. There are though models with turnable slider as the Fafix, but with inferior lens. For example the Pradovit Color tray-projector is very compact and got its own dust cap, turning the whole thing into a small case.
