    I have an opportunity to buy a Pradovit C 2500 with 90mm Colorplan lens at a good price. Does anyone know whether the C 2500 blacks out between slides or not? I believe the model dates from the late 1970s or early 80s...

    If you mean does it have the "automatic dark interval" Yes, it does.

    Thanks, Colin, for the information. I'm using a lot of digital these days, burning digital slide shows on to discs and showing on my HDTV. But still nothing beats a good slide from a good projector on a good screen, and my old Rollei dissolve projector is now beyond repair.

    Tom, Your most welcome. I agree wholeheartedly with your comments. I use a Pradovit color 250 to project my Leica slides and they leave nothing to be desired, but when I saw my Contax 645 slides projected through a Hasselblad MF projector, I was blown away! Makes 35mm look like something from Toys R Us! Don't recommend you try it...you may get hooked.

    Go for it! Colin is right. I only shoot slides, 35mm, and 6x6 and as I have commented before after viewing a 6x6 slide of a landscape projected 6'x 6', that if there were some ambient light, you would think you were there!

    If you cannot find a PCP, I can recommend the Rollei Dual 66. With it you can project 35mm and MF. I also like my Leica RT and especially my old Zeiss Ikon, if you can find a good one, the projected color is remarkable.

    Enjoy:

    Gilbert
