Short of that this is a great thread

Meanwhile, I've been toying with the idea of replacing my Ektagraphic projectors with Leitz RT300s. I have two RT300s so far, holding off buying a third; but I may do that. Directly comparing an Ektagraphic with an RT300, the color is better with the RT300. So why do I hesitate? My Golden Navitar Perspective Control lenses will not fit in the narrow tunnel of the RT300. I could use my Schneider PC lenses, but they are still tricky to adjust inside the lens tunnel. Not impossible, but tricky. A little sheet metal work with a tinsnips might solve the problem. But do I really want to do that to an RT300? One other thing: I would have to build yet another projector stand. But I think I'm going to do that.

From a sound level standpoint, they are about even. The Ektagraphic makes more noise when changing slides, but has a quieter fan. You can change bulbs in the RT300 without disturbing the position of the projector. Overall, I think the RT300 wins.
May the light be with you.
