I have some lovely transparencies that I want to mount in glass slides, all done on my Mamiya 7 II. I am lost to be honest, I had a look on the interent and was puzzled by a plethera of sizes (none of which said 6x7 but things like 30x37 or 24x36)????

Does anyone know what size I need and a good place to buy them?

I want to view them on a projector BIG before I decide which ones I want to have blown up and framed.

Also anyone know how to get the transparencies into the slides after you manage to find the right ones...HELP!!!

Calumet sell Gepe 6x7 glass mounts 15 for 10 so not cheap. You could also check out Gepe for a complete list of products.

I take it you actually have a 6x7 projector with which to project these rather large transparencies? I only asked 'cos last time I looked for one, when I was looking to mount my Xpan trannies, the projector cost an absolute fortune!
Current cost from the Widescreen Centre is:

Quote:6x7 Gotschmann 67P proj. 2346.83

So if you do have one, or buy one, can I borrow it please?!

I was going to suggest you look at the Widescreen Centres website but they've updated it recently and it doesn't appear to be fully working.

Gepe are your best bet for slide mounts though, and the one you're looking for is part number 2701 54x68mm - what they call the ideal format.

I think they have a projector in my art centre where I'm a member but I should check the avialability of it before I go buying things I may not be able to use.

Thanks BigCol for telling me the GEPE code for the right slide, why they can't just say for 6x7 I dont know.

You could always make one Smile It wouldn't match a 2000 model but would give fairly impressive results given the size of the original slide.

Or at that size just stick them on a light box with a magnifying thingy. Not quite the same as projecting them big, but it could save a lot of money, plus you'll get a good idea as to the quality of the picture.
