Slide and negative projectors

Just started to buy components for a new series of slide projectors

The idea is to make the frame from openbuild aluminium  and components which will make the projector easier to align and adjust.

the condenser is from a Rollei 6x6cm enlarger so it should be possible to project MF slides and negatives

larger condensers from 5×4 even 10×8 enlargers could be used (link here to Kubricks front projection on 2001)

Projection lens could be from enlargers (slow) or MF enlargers (fast).

What does this open up?  Very high quality projections – with tonal range and detail you can’t get from a digital projector. Also a material quality which is lacking in digital.

Possibility of making own slides on a sensible scale ie 6x6cm or larger
