    MF slide show..

    If a person wanted to do such a thing, how do you get them mounted? What kind of projectors are still available ?

    They made 2 1/4 slide mounts. I remember using the cardboard ones in college. Used a tacking iron to seal them. There were also plastic ones. The best ones had glass (recommended), as I seem to recall a few of mine buckling from the projector heat.
    MF projectors are out there, but not cheap.

    My father would mount them in glass and used a black tape around the edges and he also had Bausch & Lomb 2 1/4" x 2 1/4" metal frames that held the glass.

    He had a great Bausch & Lomb projector that took slide trays. We lost track of his projector and I have not been able to find one anywhere.

    Since Kodak started walking away from slides the last few years I have not bothered to look for the projectors.

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    I paid $200 (IIRC) for a used Rollei 66P projector a couple of years ago.

    And I was given a Kindermann medium format projector a month or so ago.

    I don't know of anyone who will mount the slides for you.

    There is some old stock of mounts available on store shelves, but it isn't inexpensive.

    I have both GEPE mounts and a mounting tool as well, but I really need to set off some time for a slide mounting binge.

    I have always purchased the mounts and placed them myself. As for projection, well if anyone out there wants to get rid of a medium format projector ...

    MF slide show..

    I second the MF projector reception (after the above poster of course).

    Also, I have a bunch of MF 6x6 plastic mounts but I also have metal ones with glass too, picked up a bunch on eBay for real cheap. Also 35mm of the glass ones.

    Anyway look around and keep up the search.

    Check goodwill an Salvation Army too.

    I used to project 6x7 negatives. A lot of fun, but I think I'm happier holding a print in my hand. Blowing up a slide to 8 or 10 feet is fun and all to see the incredible resolution and detail, but a lot of my photos were not meant to be shown so large.

    I used a relatively modern (c. WW-II) and cheap lantern slide projector. Worked fine for 6x7.
