Medium format slides (+ lightmeter)
Not that I have any yet... but how do you guys/ladies actually display your trannies?
I just got my new Speedgraphic catalogue today and apparently the Rollei 66 Dual P is the only projector capable of displaying both 35mm and 6x6. At 1165 gbp it is hardly cheap.
And another slightly out of place. Does any of you have any experience with the Gossen lightmeter? It seems very good and is so portable but what is the performance of this?

I scan all my transparencies, including 645 slide film with a Microtek ScanMaker 4 (a dual media flat bed transparency scanner for ~ $480 - lots cheaper than a drum scanner) then color correct them using Photoshop.
Almost any new light meter that you buy will be extremely accurate.
Gossen is a great brand, Sekonic and Minolta are fine instruments as well, especially the ambient/flash meters; they are invaluable for medium and large format.
Frame the world in a little box, press the shutter, and the rest becomes history.

Thanks - I guess I will watch the picture more if I scan them and use them as screen savers etc.
Finally got a film in my Rollei and then they promise 5 days of drizzle - with occasional showers etc. That ain't fair!

I have a Gossen C-Mate light meter I bought on ebay for $40., as well as an old Weston for $5.00 which gives me the exact same readings. The old one doesn't have incidence though.
Drizzle is ok, should give you excellent light so long as the camera stays fairly dry! I've never tried slide film in the rolleis, but a rolleikin should help (you would use 35mm slide film).
