I just found an ad on a board where I was posting my own ad
The seller is offering about 50 items, including Rollei a P350 slide
projector.  My questions are:
What is your overall opinion of this unit?
Does it accept 6X6 slides?
What is the best glass for it (assuming that different types of
lenses were available for this model?
What should I look for when I check it out?
What should I offer for a unit in good condition with good glass?


I've got one of these, bought new about 15 years ago for about 50UKP.  =
It's a standard sort of cheap slide projector, nothing special.  =
Die-cast base, plastic top.  35mm slides only.  Some models had =
autofocus, some had an interval timer, mine just has a focus rocker on =
the (wired) remote.  I don't think you'd bother with different lenses, =
the rest of the optics aren't all that good (and certainly the plastic =
lens isn't).

My disenchantment is mainly due to what happens when the drive-belt =
snaps.  The slide changing arm typically stops halfway out.  It's worked =
by a cam, so you can't get it further out to release the magazine, and =
you can't get it back in again.  Which is what you need to do to get the =
lid off, due to sheer stupid design.

There are also about half a dozen identical black screws on the base.  =
Two of them help hold the lid on, the other 4 hold crucial bits of =
mechanism to the chassis - unscrew the wrong ones and everything falls =
around inside and you STILL can't get the lid off.  I've had to open =
mine so often that I've marked the six screws that do undo the lid with =
little red stickers.  I've also bypassed the mains-switch, because it =
was very tight getting the cables in past the PCB for the remote socket.

After the drive-belt snapped, I tried rubber bands which weren't a =
success, then a walkman drive belt that just about goes apart from a =
heart-stopping pause every now and again.

Having said all that, I don't think it's any worse than any other slide =
projector for the same money (cheap) and I'm looking forward to sending =
the in-laws to sleep again this Christmas day with more of our holiday =
pictures.
