    Transparencies

    I know prints and I know slides, but what is transparency film all about. What are its advantages and detractions? (Be kind, my naitivity is showing...)

    How do you print from it? Can you?

    To my knowledge a transparency is another name for a slide. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. -Grant

    oh yeah... I think you can print using a reversal paper that is pretty expensive. But since I've never done my own color printing I don't know a lot about the subject.

    Transparency, slide, chrome-all the same. But now there's transparency film that people are using on inkjet printers.

    So, except for the old slide projector show of my summer vacation thing, why would I choose to shoot slide/transparancy?

    Good Evening,

    Transparencies have traditionally been the standard for color reproduction in publications. 35mm is widely accepted, but the larger sizes are often prefered.

    MF and LF transparencies can also produce stunning Cibachromes.

    because it produces a first gen image that is arguably the most beautifal of all photographic materials

    B&W Transparency

    Besides reversal paper for color slides, is there a reversal paper/process for B&W transparencies, eg Agfa Scala?

    Scala? You could print it on Ilfochrome, probably even on the old R3-stuff (which is overall discontinued).

    Slides vs Transparency. Yes, they're the same unless you're selling your work. Transparencies sell for more!
