[cdt-l] Special Film for Slides?

Hi Chris,

I still use slides (although thinking of moving to Advanced Photo System,
otherwise known as APS or Advantix), for possible presentation purposes.  As
far as I know, you still must use special film for it (like Kodak's Elite
Chrome), with the attached price penalty.  Not only that, but the processing
is expensive and you wait longer to get them back (usually).

I am quite sure you can get digitized pictures onto slides.  Check with
media firms that do transfers in your area.  They may charge you a dollar
for each slide!  (That was what I was quoted for transferring CorelDRAW
files to individual slides a few years back.)  I wonder if the resolution
might show up on the slide?

Hey Now,

Question that's not directly related to the CDT, my apologies but i don't
wanna go ask around in a photography newsgroup or something since slide
have been mentioned here twice recently - anyway... does one need special
film for slides?  It's my understanding that that used to be the case but is
it nowadays?  This question may be considered dumb to some (excuse me for
being knowledgable about everything in the universe!) - can slides be made
i'm using a digital camera?  I guess the pics would hafta be printed then
made into slides somehow or no, nope, not gonna happen, must use a 35mm
camera?  I'm thinkin' about being able to present some of my upcoming hikes
with slides if the opportunity arises so your input to my wondering will be
GREATLY appreciated and I thank you mucho!
