Eric,
I have had a few demonstrations of digital projectors, since generally I find digital convenient and get excellent prints from it. Even the most expensive 16 grand projector did not match my Pradovit with 35mm slides. Goodness knows how it would compare with projected 6x6 slides! Please advise where I may find anything acceptable, I am genuinely in the market but have so far found the only area where digital is clearly inferior to film is for projection.

There is no comparison in my opinion, and that of the pros I know. The
market is moving to digital projection overwhelmingly. Your opinion
differs, but I want to make clear that on the facts, digital still
projection wins hands-down on brightness, contrast, reliability,
flexibility, ease, and production choices. Taste is an individual
preference.

I have no idea what equipment your wife encounters with her corporate
PP presentations, but we are not talking old/low end projectors here,
which is typically what I have found in these situations...

Relative to cine projection, the matter is not so clear. The so-called
"2k" standard was not on par with optical projection and the motion
picture industry was unsuccessful at moving theater owners over to the
system. The new "4k" standard, by most accounts, is superior, and
holds the potential for digital conversion on a large scale if the
economics can be made viable...

You clearly have not done a state-of-the-art side-by-side comparison of digital and slide projection. Slides win, hands down, in every regard save for convenience. My wife occasionally has to give presentations and is dismayed that she can no longer arrange for a slide projector and screen at
most venues, forcing her to use PowerPoint, which she hates.
