The only thing that beats a good print, in my view, (no pun intended) is a good transparency well projected.

Especially if it's 120 (or larger). Smile

Well, I've discovered where the floating toolbar has floated off to!

If I click on the little arrow head at the bottom LHS of the screen it floats back.

And if I click on the little arrow head on the bottom RHS it floats off again!

Tanfastic! Smile

Beats playing Acorn Electron Aliens to a frazzle! Smile

I blame you, CB! Wink

Would not disagree with that Smile

In fact, when I decorated my bedroom many years ago I emulsioned one wall white to act as the projection screen.

You can project digital images in the same way - these too can be medium format.

It means you can take an image on a medium format digital camera, e.g. the 60-megapixel Hasselblad H4D-60, and project it. Smile

Projection is not limited to slide film, as may have been implied by Jas's post at the top of the page.

At only 27k (body only) it's hard to think why the H4D isn't standard equipment for all EPZ members. Smile

Mine's on order..............................

Ah, i see it was related to the "especially if its 120 (or larger) comment" i missed that sorry Cb.

You can project very successfully images from more normal digital cameras using a HD home cinema projector, as long as you input in 1080p the results are excellent. It helps to resize the image to the correct dimensions for HD to get the best results (1920 x 1200 i think).

As above.

I really only take photographs with a view to producing prints - although some do go into competitions as projected digital images.

Proportions? Well, if I am honest, I doubt if more than 10% of the exposures I make ever get as far as printing. I guess some folk will regard that as a fairly horrific statistic.

Sometimes, of course, I take photographs with a view to using elements of them in creative "composites" but, again, probably not more than 10% of them ever end up as part of a printed composite.

I print my favourite landscapes up to A3+ on my R3000 with fine art paper. It's really expensive but there is no sense for me to make the effort to capture a stunner then just hold it digitally. The print shows the quality of the craft, mood and soul. Starting to sell prints now, for others to enjoy Grin
