    anybody else thinking what I'm thinking? (Ikea LED spot as a projector)

    Ikea Sprida Led Spotlight. I wonder if those "slides" are the same size as my slides? I'll check it out on my next trip to the store.

    It likely won't focus your slides. Sorry.

    It may be too hot for 35mm slides. Unless you have a desire to see them melt and then burn.
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    You might have better luck with these, which I've been thinking about for a long time. I will wait until the kids are sleeping.....

    hope

    The two posters above are probably correct but hope springs eternal. What if there was a way to make it work? It is a lot cooler looking than my olde Kodak slide projector.

    What you're looking for is a Minolta mini projector. Guaranteed to work.

    What's wrong with an ordinary slide projector? Too big for you?

    The last time I scanned Ebay, the high-quality Kodak Ektar slide projects were selling at less than $50. And the absolute BEST way to project a slide is with a slide projector!

    No, but I don't want to leave one plugged in in my toddler's bedroom all night. How long do you think a slide would last running for hours at a time? How long would that hot bulb last running all night? Are normal slide projector's completely silent?
    That added to the fact that I don't already own one.

    Either option will make a very bright nightlight.
