    DIY converting my afghan box camera to a 4x5 slide projector

    I wrote a blog post and did a video on this project and here it is . In the end I was able to project my 4x5 slides in a very dark room for my own viewing but I am happy enough.
    Think of the brightness more like a oil lamp magic lantern projector rather than those 35mm slide projectors with a hot bulb and fan.

    Any suggestions for improvement are welcomed!

    Have you thought to ramp-the-amps till it could function as an enlarger?

    There are only three types of mounting flanges; too big, too small and wrong thread!

    i do have that thought. i can replace the light bulb with an array of RGB LEDs which can be individual controlled. in this manner i can do selective burning or dodging. Then add a red light filter and a timer controlling the LEDs.
