How do I view my 6x7 slides?

Another noob question. How do you all view your medium format slides? Is a light table the only option for slides this big?

Mamiya used to make a 6x7 projector. I expect they don't any longer, but it is probably possible to pick up a used one.
Other than that, a light table is pretty much it.

Besides 6x7 projector or light table you can project them using a overhead projector masking off the excess area.

MF projectors are still available, look around in Google and eBay and one will show up soon enough. I siple scan all mine and view them in Photoshop. If something looks worth the effort, then I get it drum scanned at the lab.

MF projectors (and film scanners) cost a fortune.

Sorry Chis not always. I purchased a used medium format slide projector at f11 in Bozeman Montana two years ago for around $69.00. I also scored a Minolta Multi Scan Pro on eBay in mint condition for less that an Epson v700. Light table and the same as Bloggs stated.
