Kiev projector illumination

Discussion in 'Medium Format' started by stephen_lumsden, Sep 13, 2007.

  1. Hi

    I have a Kiev 35mm/6*6 projector, but it seem to be projecting a bit too brightly. I find that all my
    slides are about .5 - 1 stop too bright. I am certain my initial exposures were right (checked them on
    the lightbox and another projector). The projector is also set on the weaker setting, but its still too
    much. Any ideas?

    regards

    Stephen
     
  2. Increase your distance.
     
  3. You could use a neutral density filter in front of the projector lens to reduce the light
    output, however if you see overly light washed out highlights with little or no detail in your
    slides, then you have overexposed the film when you took the pictures, and no amount of
    light reduction will bring back detail that wasn't recorded on the film.
