... I still have a slide projector, but I haven't used it in years. I have scanned many of my slides, and sometimes print them. The affect is not really the same, but you can make some great prints from them. ...
I went 12 years without dragging out the projector. When I did, the results blew me away and that is what brought me back to film. Now it comes out every couple months or so. My projector is an inexpensive Vivitar model, and if that can blow me away, imagine what a better projector/lens would do! You really should get your projector out and load up a tray with slides.
Shoot more film.
There are eight ways to put a slide into a projector tray. Seven of them are wrong.
